We go to this place somewhat regularly, and it's merely okay. Not horrible, but definitely not a high end, high quality place. The sushi is nothing special and like most northern VA sushi joints, it's all about the special wacky rolls they come up with like the silly "Volcano Roll" which looks more like a bunch of scaffolding than something to eat. Hard to find a great sushi place that focuses on super fresh high quality fish, but hey, you gotta give the people what they want and sadly what most everyone in McLean wants is cut rolls, rolls and more rolls. Not sure any of them would know what to do with sashimi. It's small, and the tables can feel cramped sometimes. No outdoor seating, no view, no nothing really. If you are a large group (say 6 or more) best to call ahead, as they may not be able to accommodate you. The sake list is as short as a Wizard of Oz munchkin, and there's no premium sake on the list. We try to get a table near the door in the summer months because it can get quite warm in there. All in all, given the dearth of high end sushi joints in the McLean/Tyson's area, this is about as good as you're going to find.

Hands down the best sushi I have ever had. They also have great alternative options in you do not want sushi.

I arrived around 6:00pm on a Saturday evening. This is an off the main street place in the heart of McLean. It only has 10-12 tables if that and seating for about 8 at the sushi bar. I've read reviews where the staff was not helpful and the service was slow but I experienced NONE of that. My glass was never empty and my food arrived promptly. The Edamame was cooked perfectly and arrived steaming hot. I also had the Spicy Tuna roll which is always a fav and ventured out to try this Japanese Lasagna roll which was magnificent.

I'm definitely going back and taking a friend.

I have come to this great restaurant for 2 years it has always met my expectations. The waiters are very nice and the service is amazing. A must have speciality roll is the lasagna roll a popular favorite. It is a baked California roll with an amazing secret sauce. I also recommend the sashimi omg its nicely cut and it's a melt in your mouth moment
