It's Ok

It's an ok place to eat, the food is ok, but it's just not the best place. I'm not crazy about the atmosphere... However, they do a bang of a business..it's just not for me.

I am from Florida and used to getting good fresh Sushi, so this is by far the worst Sushi experience ever. I would give it zero stars if I could. The restaurant was small, not well light and not clean. The service was horrible. We walked in and waited for a waitress, but that took forever. When one did finally... More

I have always loved the place for lunch. The food is fresh and delicious and all the workers are friendly. The food is not overpriced and the portions are above average.

The Godzirra roll and sticky balls are amazing, don't forget to get yourself a bucket of tots or get yourself a dirty vegan noodle bowl. Hipster place but good food gets busy later in the night with the younger crowd. The food is always good !

My new bride and I love to walk around Richmond looking for good places to eat. Someone recommended Sticky Rice and we have been there about three or four times now. This is our new go-to place for pot-stickers, which are absolutely delicious. We have actually ordered a few rounds to make it a meal. However, we have also tried... More

Fun, healthy, stop. Always a good crowd. Nice bar. Very authentic Asian food, including sushi. Appeals to diverse audience.

Visited Sticky Rice twice within a week! Love the causal laid back atmosphere with good service and flavorful meals. Enjoyed the Sushi Specials both nights- worth the trip alone. Get there early or plan on waiting for a table!

Go for the everyday happy hour, stay for the daily special activities. Get yourself a three-course meal (miso, edamame, and Sticky Balls) and a PBR for around 10 bucks!

My wife and I have been hanging out and eating here for ten years. Try the sticky balls, the burgers and crab cakes are to die for and and fantabulous amazing roll will always put a smile on your face and an explosion of flavor in your mouth. Who doesn't like tater tots or spinach salads with ginger dressing? Also,... More

I have never seen a place that has tots and sushi together on the menu. Since I like both, it seemed perfect. The tots were very good at tasted surprisingly good with soy sauce and wasabi. I also enjoyed the sushi varieties including some unusual combinations. We enjoyed the Chili Roll quite a lot. It is a place with an... More
