I never come to Alexandria or the DC area without visiting this restaurant. The service is excellent, the setting wonderful and the food perfection. The menu is fixed but they will accommodate food allergies. They have an excellent selection of sake which I like to...More

This is a fixed price Japanese restaurant with wonderful food. I can't recommend it highly enough. We were served multiple small dishes, including the lightest tempura I've ever had, delicate miso soup, fresh tuna, uni, and duck in a wonderful sauce. They were able to...More

Great place and very quiet setting. It has a set menu (for $48/person), and everything was excellent and complementary to each other. Highly recommend this place.

In Alexandria for a conference, I wanted to try out a newer restaurant so Nasime popped up as a perfect choice. It's perfectly located on upper King Street. Follow your navigation and check the store numbers as Nasime has only a faintly visible sign in...More
