“Surprisingly Exceptional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

One would not think of finding good Sushi in a place tucked away in a sleepy neighborhood, but Ariake defied that logic!
The Sushi was exceptionally fresh. The service was rapid and attentive. The atmosphere relaxed and casual. I felt that value was excellent as well.
My only suggestion is for the owners to pay better attention to the entrance. It was somewhat untidy and uninviting. Other than that when in Reston and in the mood for Sushi, Ariake will be tops on my list.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Out of the way, and definitely worth the trip. Sushi is the best quality and service is tops. I come to this restaurant at least once a month.

“Nice for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Had a nice lunch here. Prices are reasonable. Food is very good. Service was quick even though the place was jammed. Fish is good quality but I thought the toro was a little below top grade. Overall I liked the place and would return.

“worth venturing from the Town Center for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I'm a sucker for ambiance, and this place has got it! Plus the sushi is fresh and their daily sushi roll specials are interesting. It's a stand alone building just off Reston Parkway that you have to make a special trip for, but so worth it.

“Good sushi, very expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Yes the sushi is good, yes the fish is fresh but this restaurant is located in a not so nice neighborhood and they are charging DC sushi prices which boggles my mind. Their customer service is also pretty bad, but like I said - the sushi is good-I'll give it to them.
