This place has delicious sushi that arrived via Uber Eats fresh and tasty. We got the Chef's Sashimi and 2 Sashimi assortments. Plenty of fish for two people. We especially LOVED the fatty tuna, tuna, salmon, scallops, and caviar. Customer service was incredible! We called...to request a couple seaweed wraps, so we could roll some of the sashimi in our own cauliflower rice maki rolls, and they accommodated and were just a pleasure speaking with on the phone. Any time we want sushi, this will now be our go to place. We recently ate Sushi Taro to-go, and we enjoyed Sushi Keiko's fish even more! This is a really special place.More

Came here on Valentines Day. They seated us without reservation, which we were not expecting and was a nice surprise. We have done take-out before, which was ready when we got there and good to go. We actually sat in last night, and ordered different...things and everything we have had so far has been great--soup, sushi, ceviche. Service was really good. They did not bother us until we were done looking at the menu--this has always been a no brainer to me, that if someone is looking at the menu they have not decided. Our waitress waited until we had just closed it, she came right by and took our order--perfect. The only thing I can say is that the prices of some things are high, (as is most in Georgetown/Glover) but the sushi is priced well and they do have a wide variety of alcohol options.More

It's tough to give a fair rating when all you ate was a lunch special. Every part of the meal (soup, salad, teriyaki, rolls) was good, but I didn't order anything challenging enough for a better judgment. But my friend eats here regularly, and his...food was fine. His support pushed the rating from average to very good. I would certainly be happy eating here again. Service was fine, and the price was right. Not the most elegant ambiance, but fine for a meal on the run or a family meal. Not sure I would bring my fussy aunt here, however. She wouldn't sit at the counter (although there are tables as well.)More

The service was good and the food was too. Had the king tuna roll and the fatty tuna, both very good. Family had the udon soup which had to be sent back to be warmed up because it was only tepid. The soup was ok,...not great. The service was attentive and friendly. Not a great place if you want to converse, it got awfully loud when the place was full.More

So, a little background: we were in DC for the Rock 'n Roll marathon and were looking for some place fun to celebrate (without breaking the bank). We actually started at Dumplings and Beyond (across the street) and had ordered some dumplings before we discovered...(to our dismay!) that they don't serve alcohol. Ack! Having walked by Sushi Keiko on our way from the car, we soon backtracked. What a providential accident! Our waiter was fantastic-- funny and helpful, attentive without being pushy-- and the other servers would step in to chat if we needed something or just to say hello. It's a great atmosphere-- super friendly-- and the food was delicious. We had a few maki and some great appetizers (a wonderful sashimi salad!)-- the only things we didn't love was the ikura, which tasted oddly sweet. All in all, it was a super fun evening of good food, good service and all with delightful Japanese beer to toast our accomplishment. If we lived it town, it would become a regular haunt for sure!More

I've eaten here before, particularly on weekends (and Friday) when they have their lunch specials, and they are quite popular and really quite good. I had a generous salmon teriyaki fillet (delicious!) with a small portion of pureed sweet potato and mushrooms, in addition to...wonderful rice, salad and soup for $10.95. Good, reasonably priced lunch option! Others were enjoying bento boxes and special sushi and sashimi meals. The restaurant is very minimalist and the seating fairly limited, but there's a nice sushi bar that seats 12-15 people. The staff is very friendly. A number of customers came in to pick up large take-out orders. This spot has had a Japanese restaurant for over 20 years, so it is well known and dependable. Highly recommend.More

I'm so glad this sushi joint finally reopened. Our neighborhood was in desperate need of sushi, and this place did not disappoint. The sushi is very fresh. I'm quite the sushi snob, and the fish quality reminds me of eating in Japan, without the astronomical...prices. The servers are warm and welcoming. They also are quick to correct any mistakes; I was halfway through my sushi before I realized that I had accidentally received someone else's order. They comped what I already had eaten, and brought out everything that I ordered. Belly full o' fish right now. I docked this place one star, because I sat at the sushi bar in hopes of ordering directly from the sushi chef. Unfortunately, sitting at the bar is mostly for entertainment...that is, if you're entertained by watching a guy make a thousand California rolls for all those takeout orders. The waitress took my order and put it in front of the sushi chef standing in front of me. It's like playing sushi-telephone. Also, the decor hasn't changed since they reopened. One wall is entirely black, with nothing on it. It makes the place seem a bit dark, or lacking ambience, when really, this is a lovely, charming local restaurant.More

Ate here with a friend on a Friday evening. We initially had to wait about 5 minutes to get acknowledged by someone for a seat, but finally one of the sushi chefs noticed us and had us sit down. We sat right at the sushi...bar, watching the chefs prepare the fresh sushi. We each ordered a different roll, both of which were very good. The eel is great here. They also have half liter bottles of Sapporo, though not on draft. Overall, a very good place for sushi with a nice atmosphere. Just be weary that next door is a strip club, so don't plan on waiting outside late at night.More

Went there with a coworker on a Wednesday night. We each had a roll with 8 pieces each and shared another 8 piece roll. She also had a mushroom soup and I had the misto. Everything tastes great and fresh. Definitely recommend if you are...in the area and want sushi.More

Glover Park has many dining options at all price points and not all restaurants serve lunch. Sushi Keiko, which was formerly Sushi Ko - a very popular and very good, long standing DC sushi spot, offers lunch only on Friday and Saturday, but their specials...are very reasonably priced and quite generous, with some miso soup to start. I should say that I am not a regular sushi or Japanese food diner but I found the food quite acceptable. I am not sure that the fish was the finest quality available (I do like and know fish and great fresh fish is not easy to get in DC, nor is it cheap), but I found it tasty and the sashimi platter, which I ordered because I also wanted take home for dinner (eating light before Easter weekend!) was a great buy. Specials start at $8.95 and there were a number of solo diners enjoying the well priced meals. The service was friendly. The room could use a bit of an update in decor, but it was simple, clean and the background music was to my liking. The decibel level is very acceptable. This is, in my view, one of the better choices available in the immediate area should you find yourself on Fri-Sat and hungry midday. I have not eaten dinner here but will definitely consider take out or an early dinner. And I think the prices are fairly comparable to the sushi available at Whole Foods (good and fresh, by the way) and Safeway (have not tried) -- both within walking distance to this restaurant.More

Wonderful soup, fresh sushi and best green tea for under $10. My go to place. Same nice space of Sushi Ko but under new management. Very authentic Japanese. Highly recommend for quick sushi meal.
