Loved the noodle bowls. Perfect spices and seasonings! Will be back soon! The atmosphere is fun and the service was decent. The sushi was also good.

Gotta say, the bucket of tater tots was awesome, as well as the dipping sauce, and they give you a ton. But everything else (except the beer!) was pretty average at best. My wife had the spicy thai chicken, which wasn't spicy, and I had the teriyaki chicken sandwich, which was as thin as a McDonalds hamburger. The sushi we... More

Horrible health inspections and have been on the restaurant report on NBC 12. Terribly crowed, rude staff, food was gross and stale... Not a reason to ever go back!!!

I live in Richmond, VA, and go to college at VCU. All of my friends and I love Sticky Rice because 1) It's afforable 2) It's good food 3) IT'S AFFORABLE. They have Happy Hours on food! Also the vibe is so unique, families and college students alike can be there and enjoy themselves. Also can't miss kareoke night!

I am from Florida and used to getting good fresh Sushi, so this is by far the worst Sushi experience ever. I would give it zero stars if I could. The restaurant was small, not well light and not clean. The service was horrible. We walked in and waited for a waitress, but that took forever. When one did finally... More

I have always loved the place for lunch. The food is fresh and delicious and all the workers are friendly. The food is not overpriced and the portions are above average.

The Godzirra roll and sticky balls are amazing, don't forget to get yourself a bucket of tots or get yourself a dirty vegan noodle bowl. Hipster place but good food gets busy later in the night with the younger crowd. The food is always good !

It's an ok place to eat, the food is ok, but it's just not the best place. I'm not crazy about the atmosphere... However, they do a bang of a business..it's just not for me.
