We went on a Sunday night around 8:10pm. When we walked through the door, we were immediately told that they close at 9. We were then told that we probably wouldn't have enough time to eat before they closed. 50 minutes is not enough time...to eat?? I have never been to any restaurant before where they want you back out the door by closing time. We felt really unwelcome, and we just left rather than make a fuss. I do think the food here is great, but there are lots of great sushi restaurants in the area that actually want our business. We won't be back.More

Excellent food! Our favorite sushi restaurant in the area. It is very small, though, so would not suggest dropping in without a reservation.

The first thing you should know is that this place is tiny and nearly always packed full. Reservations are strongly recommended. They have quite a devoted following. But they managed to seat us at the sushi bar after only ten minutes or so. It was...worth the wait. Their sushi is excellent. They happened to have amaebi (sweet shrimp) that evening, pricey (cost about half as much as my combo platter) but a real delicacy. We'll be back -- probably with reservations.More

We truly enjoyed Sushi Prince. My mother and I ordered Chirashi bowl and my wife bento box for lunch. We had thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. Chirashi bowl was filled with different kinds of fish (very fresh) and tasty rice underneath. Bento box...was also very good. This is certainly one of the better Japanese restaurants I've been to in the East coast. Food is bit pricy but it is worth every penny. They close at 2:30 pm after lunch and they are quite strict about you finishing your food and getting out by that time. So better not be late.More

I came in at 1:00 pm on a Saturday. The place was full, but I said I would wait for a table. A couple came in after me without a reservation. When s table for 4 came up, they seated the couple after me instead...of seating me. I had to wait another 15 minutes till a table for 2 to come up to be seated. I don’t appreciate being penalized because I was s single diner. It’s a shame since they have great food. I love the sushi bento box.More

My wife and I went for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. It was a pleasant surprise. First, it was very busy and we were even asked if we had reservations. We didn't but luckily there was a cancellation and we were seated within...10 minutes. Sashimi was fresh, and the bento boxes were delicious. Will definitely be a regular from now on.More

My wife, adult daughter and I went for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. We were delighted. If you enjoy Shashimi, this is your new best friend. We all ordered Shashimi bento boxes and were treated to receive great taste and properly sufficient portions.

Not much more that I can say that hasn't been said about this place already. Solid sushi spot in Fairfax. I've been there 4 times over the course of 1 or 2 years and my experience has been consistently great and without a hiccup. I've...only tried their specialty rolls that start at about $13-15 per serving and they were all quite delicious. Tasting fresh and interesting with different sauces and add-ons, what else can one ask for? The restaurant is pretty tiny so your changes of getting a table without reservations are rather slim. I highly encourage you to make a reservation. One thing I dislike is how close together are their tables. I understand it's because they're working with very little space, but it's a pet peeve of mine sitting so close to other people that they can stare at my food or listen in on my conversation. Other than that, the food is great and staff is friendly.More

I have been to Sushi Prince 3 times in the 9 months. Each time has been great. The best Sushi in the Fairfax area. Service is great..nice and very attentive. Menu has plenty of choices for all tastes. Dining area is small and can be...a tight fit. Not a place if you want a quiet dinner with some privacy. You definitely need reservations.More

This place is small and cozy, staff was very friendly (and patient), I can't say enough about how good the sushi is. Very fresh and very good.
