I am not a fan of sushi with cream cheese, fried ingredients, etc. I like to taste the main ingredients, and Momo lets you do that. The fish was fresh and they had some local specials. Be prepared to wait a bit, as the place is relatively small and they don't take reservations, but we thought it was worth the... More

The establishment is small in size, but, the hour wait to be seated was worth it. The atmosphere was nice and the sushi was good. The customer service was good and I will visit again.

Great sushi at a low key restaurant (no reservations). Grab a seat at the bar and order the spicy special rolls. My definition of great is when I don't need the soy sauce and my sinuses are still clear from the intense bite of the sauces. Great sauces by the sushi chef - and of course great fresh fish. This...

Decent sushi and sashimi served in this intimate restaurant a bit "Off Kings Street". Large menu. Good selection of Japanese beers.

Place is kind of small, so expect some waiting time. Ambient is great, service attentive and always following up at the table, sushi was awesome, and fast serving. Ordered chicken teriyaki besides sushi and at least for me has been one of the greatest that I have tasted. Highly recommended!

I saw the Google rating, decided to give a try (knowing that I should not have high expectation), and when I walked out of the restaurant, I saw many people are waiting in line for this place. I am not sure why but for my personal experience as a tourist, I would not recommend this place especially if you have... More

As this is one of the few sushi places near Old Town Alexandria VA, we went here for my friend's birthday. The sushi was fairly priced for dinner on a weekday and they brought all of the food out at the same time. Staff was attentive and gave my friend a couple scoops of ice cream with a sparkler for...

Very good late lunch (2:30 pm) at Momo sushi. We had a terrific spider roll and salmon skin roll. The restaurant is not very big so I don't know how busy it gets for lunch or dinner but the food was excellent, the service professional and friendly.

Stopped in for a very pleasant lunch. Ordered from the lunch menu. (sushi, of course) Began with miso soup. Was good but only warm but not hot. The sushi was prepared very promptly and was of a very high quality. The tuna of note was excellent. Salad accompanying the meal was also very good. Very nice restaurant for a lunch.

I recently took a job in the Old Town Alexandria area and have been craving "good" tuna and salmon sashimi as part of my after work, "kill time before the long commute home" routine. I have been disappointed by other sushi restaurants in Alexandria due to their lack of creativity in their roll types and freshness in their tuna. Momo... More
