“Best sushi in Old Town -- yep, tried 'em all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

A little pricey, but that's to be expected with the real estate near the beach. The place is hopping full, but they kept the tables cleared and reset quickly, and it never appeared to be more than a five minute wait. There is also a second floor with the same seating and additional sushi bar/staff. So, don't let the appearance of a small size scare you away from the wait. You wont wait long, and it's well worth a long wait.

“Ah-Mazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

This little hidden sushi joint is one for the books! Great service, a mellow atmosphere, fresh, fresh, and fresh sushi! I have never been disappointed and I've tried at least one new roll every time. Well done Momo's!

“Sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This little place is probably THE best sushi place! Unpretentious, laid back, tiny, and most of all fabulously delicious! You will not find really fancy sushi creations here, just super fresh, delicious staples! At very reasonable prices! Can't wait to get back...most likely the day after tomorrow :-)

“Best Sushi in Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This is our favorite spot for sushi in Old Town. The restaurant is very small. I would recommend calling ahead to get take-out and enjoying it back at your house/hotel, particularly if you don't want to wait.
