Sticky balls are to die for. I am dead. Thats right, I died. So good! If you havent been to NE to try it yet, get delivery from Uber or Postmates. Or stop being lazy! BOOM!

In a part of town that seems a little shady this small asian joint took us completely by surprise. The food was terrifically seasoned and cooked to perfection. Spicy shrimps, Veggie tempure plate, sticky wings - everything was crispy and tasted wonderful. And the service was sort of eccentric, but very kind. Really want come back some day.

Tried this place out and glad we did! Seemed like a little swanky bar when we walked in, but after being seated in the dining area upstairs, I was a little more at ease. The staff were great and the food...amazeballs! The sweet potato tater tots are to die for and the spicey steak with udon noodles was even more... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dinner here with adult family members on a Saturday night. Good was tasteful in its preparation and presentation. Servers were friendly and relaxed. There was enough background music/noise to be hip but still allowed conversations without yelling. I would go back in a heartbeat!!

Enjoyed the outdoor patio and the food. You can get noodles, sushi, maki, and various rice dishes. The inside was too loud.

The Godzirra rolls are not to be missed. Well...as those tots...gotta get those too. The service is quick and they have a pretty big menu. The service is especially good because they work as a team, and everyone is around to help you, not just your server. Haven't had something there that I didn't like. Even vegan friends continue to...

Came here for the first time and had very high hopes. It's very cool - good music, very hip, and the food is really excellent. Great comfort food, not at all pretentious. However, the drag show on at the time was dreadful. Mostly because of the sound system - too loud and distorted. And none of the restaurant management did... More

As starters, we got the crispy tater tots with their spicy mayo. Crunch-tastic. Also had the ribs, a bit firm but lots of flavor. Tried the Hamachi sashimi, and it was very fresh. Also had soba noodle salad with spinach, it was ok. Sampled the tempura tuna roll with avocado, a great crunch with smooth and firm inside. The menu... More

Sticky Rice is a sushi/Asian Fusion joint that is more ideal for vegetarian and vegan diners, as there is not a whole lot of meat selections on the menu. There's not a whole lot of variety among the noodle and rice dishes, but there is quite a large list of sushi options. I'm not sure how it compares as a... More

First stop was Sticky Rice on H St. Nice layout and crowd (not crowded). Saketini was sweet but good (it's the plum wine). Veggie tempura was done well and the chicken curry fried rice was tasty. Overall it was pretty good. I'd return.
