“High quality Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Momo offers very high quality sushi and a very pleasant atmosphere in beautiful Old Town Alexandria, right next door to long time great, Bilbo Baggin's.

The standards are all well done, and there are some nice specials. The SAKE selection is pretty extensive and fairly priced, as is not always the case in Sushi places. There is a lot of attention to detail, care and the dining experience. This is small place, so time your visit at less crowded times. Very good experience!

“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 :-)
