This restaurant is a no thrills sushi restaurant. It has zero ambience, but it has delicious food. I don't find it "dirty". It's just not new and fresh inside. It could use an updating. We usually get the Redskins roll, Marland roll and the Philli roll. All sushi comes with miso soup, salad with ginger dressing, sweet cucumbers, Kimchi, and... More

The food lacked flavor. It had a good foundation, just seemed that they were being skimpy with the spices. We were disappointed.

Best Sushi, fresh, fast and able to make to order. Squid salad, Korean side dishes and soup complete a fantastic meal. Reminds me so much of Seoul alley dinners after the bars close

Very small cozy place. Mix of sushi and Korean dishes. A good fix for authentic Asian food without driving out to Northern VA in SoMD. May not want to wear very nice clothes to dine as sometimes it soaks up the tempura frying smell. Staff are courteous and food are reasonably priced.

Used to be my favorite place to eat in Waldorf but my last few visits have been a little off...new waitstaff maybe. Don't get me wrong, the sushi is still good...the lunch bento boxes are a great value as is the sushi but it just seems like things have slipped a bit. I know the owner has opened a sports... More

Great sushi, and you can't beat their lunch bento box prices - under $10 for salad, miso soup, tempura, sushi and a main dish. Their kitchen is house made and wonderful.. Also love their gal-bi and bibimbap.

OMG...Love their Sushi...Just don't like to eat in the restaurant. Food doesn't match the establishment but I have found that those are the best place to get great food. The Maryland roll and Bake Maryland roll are to die for!!

I am not sure how this place passes health inspections. Everything is dirty: walls, tables, floors, menus, windows, walls..The serving wear is chipped, old, and wearing thin. We've ordered sushi here a few times. Its inexpensive and good. We've always taken it to go so we hadnt really paid attention. We decided to eat there this last time. I will... More

Kodori is one of those magical little finds - tucked away in a tiny strip mall (about 3 shops!), it is tiny itself with just a handful of tables and a counter. There is nothing fancy about the place, inside or out... but don't let that fool you - Kodori has some of the absolute best sushi around! It's made... More
