“Very good sushi, quaint atmosphere”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

They were very friendly to us, as we had a rather spunky child with us, and although the seating is limited and cozy, it felt very inviting and accommodating. The sushi was excellent and being able to watch the sushi being made was fascinating. Reservations are recommended for weekends or at least call ahead, there isn't much space to wait, in warm weather that might not be an issue, but it can be rather strange standing waiting for a table while staring at the people eating very close to you.

“freshest sushi in Washington”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Tiny space, two blocks off King Street, two blocks off the waterfront, not touristy, but the best sushi and the freshest fish anywhere. Outstanding.

“Always a favorite”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

When it comes to experimenting at sushi restaurants we are always cautious. This place is a solid good diviner every time. We don't worry about whether we will have a good meal. It's always consistent. The tempura is always lights and perfect. I wish the location had a better waiting area outside when there is a wait. They use every bit of inside space for diners. Being pregnant it would be nice to have some benches, etc.

“Tasty, Authentic Sushi”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I ate at Momo Sushi while attending a business conference in Alexandria in November 2012. The location is just off the main tourist area, and the restaurant was busy on a Friday night with lots of locals in attendance. I ate at the sushi bar, which was the only spot available. I ordered a variety of sushi items a la carte- sea urchin, octopus, baby octopus, clam, and a few different rolls (spicy tuna, california, and crunchy seaweed). The food was prepared upon request, and everything tasted fresh and delicious. Momo Sushi has a variety of beers from Asia although no beers were on tap, which is a bit of a disappointment. I will return if I am in the area again.
