“Great sushi!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Tono was great sushi! Freshly made -- staff was friendly, courteous, and quick. Would definitely recommend for a bit of sushi -- reasonably priced as well!

“Best sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Everytime we are in DC we head over to Tono for the best sushi. They have the fish of the day selection. Their pieces are thick and fresh. The selection of rolls is quite extensive and good size. If you order seaweed salad, they give you a selection of 5 different seaweeds. It's a great place.

“Great Thai food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Four of us went here for lunch after touring the National Zoo and were not disappointed. Very large portions, great service, good prices... I got the drunken noodles and they were outstanding. It was super eating in a local restaurant that serves fine food!

“delivery sushi filled with lettuce?!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I ordered from Tono Sushi using the LivingSocial online ordering service in my quest to find a good delivery sushi joint in DC close to me. This place is not it.

I ordered the shrimp tempura roll and the dragon roll -- two staples of sushi. The problem I had with both rolls was that there was LETTUCE in both of them. You have to be a bit too crafty for your own good if you seriously try to put lettuce in all your rolls instead of cucumber or (fill in the blank ingredient). There was not adequate shrimp in the shrimp tempura roll, which was disappointing. The dragon roll was fine, but nothing to speak of. The lettuce ruined both rolls.

(I tend to not order spicy tuna rolls after the investigation of sushi places in DC found that every single one of them did not have "real" tuna, and I don't even want to imagine what Tono Sushi would have...)

Not recommended.
