“Best in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We keep coming back because Aoba has the best Japanese dishes and freshest sushi in the area. Price is a bit pricey for a small strip mall joint but the food is worth every penny! We always order nigiri and rolls as well as the udon and katsu (personal favorites). Weekday lunch menu is a great value!

“Always friendly, always good sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We frequently go to Aoba. (They ask where we've been when it has been a while between visits.) The sushi is always fresh and expertly prepared. The service is friendly and efficient.

Possibly the best sushi and Japanese food in Northern Virginia.

“Excellent sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

One of the best sushi places in Sterling/Ashburn area. The staff is friendly and accomodating (though sometimes there are language problems) . Went to this place on numerous occasions, never had bad experience. The food is always fresh and made in a creative way.

By far the best Sushi I've had in the area. Their shrimp tempura roll is my absolute fave. I haven't had any food there other than sushi, but what I've had has always been super fresh, really yummy, and not expensive. Well worth your time and money.
