I was in training class in Rest on and was looking for some good sushi. I searched trip advisor and found the ones to avoid and also saw good reviews for Ariake. So I went. Not overly busy but it was a Monday. I was impressed by how quickly I was greeted and seated. Very friendly. I ordered my sushi... More

Or better yet don't so it's not crowded when I go. Best sushi arguably in Fairfax (besides PassionFish). Always good. Friendly service.

This place is very popular and for good reason. Cars parked in the grass on the weekend in spite of a large lot. Service is fast, and tables are cleaned and turned quickly, so even when very busy the wait does not seem too bad. Prices are typical for sushi in the burbs around DC (which is to say expensive)....

Love the sushi here at Ariake. Always fresh and there is always an interesting special. A little hidden away, off of Reston Parkway. With so few non-chain restaurants left in Reston, this one is a stand out. Great staff and a real treat if you get a seat at the sushi bar to watch and hear the chefs in action.

My adult son loves this place so much he'll often dine alone! The sushi and shashimi are very fresh and delicious. Interestingly enough, there is a fabulous mushroom soup. Not cream based; but mushrooms steeped in hot water to create a very flavorful "broth" , while incorporating different kinds of mushrooms. Extensive menu; bento boxes, and the usual Japanese fare....

My husband and I eat here at least once a month and are never disappointed. The sushi is always nicely presented, fresh and delicious. The tempura is lightly battered and not greasy. The staff is attentive. I have only positive things to say.

Reston has several Japanese restaurants, but Ariake is definitely the best -- Their happy hour ($9 food sets as well as drink specials) is a great deal, and it's a convenient place to meet up with friends at the end of a workday. Although their entrees are rather average in quality (but quite large in size), the sushi is good... More

My favorite part of this restaurant is when you walk in and leave, the sushi chefs behind the bar welcome you and bid you farewell! They have a happy hour from 5-6:30 with drinks 25% off and small plate offerings. One of the main benefits to this restaurant is the location because there are not too many restaurants in the...

I'll try not to oversell this... it's good - but don't build up any incredible expectations (that will not be met). A Japanese-flavored place that serves larger portions than most and rotates the waitstaff between courses and duties. It's nearby for me but this the first time I've gone in. I had the Tempura Chicken and veggies appetizer followed by... More

This is a favorite for our company and I have eaten there at least 30 times - the service is friendly and fast and the sushi is good. The sushi combinations (#22b) and sushi bento boxes with Tempura (#6) are an excellent lunch deal at $10-15. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has an outdoor patio with a waterfall open... More
