“Best sushi in Frederick, which is like being the world's tallest midget”

Roppongi Japanese Restaurant
Ranked #180 of 405 Restaurants in Frederick
Cuisines: Sushi, Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 26, 2009

I'm sad to say Frederick isn't a sushi town. Most Japanese places are of the steak house variety, except for the merely adequate Hinode - the same as the one in Bethesda and Rockville, except they dumbed down the menu for Frederick diners! The sign for Roppongi reads "Frederick's Best Sushi" and I would concur, although it's not a very hard honor to claim.

The food is actually pretty good (portions are rather small, thereby affecting the overall value), but the service is.. let's just call it strange. I can't say I've ever felt super welcome in this place. Others have complained about slow service, but at least I haven't experienced that. The matriarch of the family that owns it is by far the friendliest one there, but her English is very limited so it's hard to communicate with her. It's a small restaurant but could use a makeover to make it a little more appealing.

Overall, the food isn't outstanding, but is perfectly fine. It's the overall feel of the restaurant that doesn't make it among the tops of my Frederick list. When I want sushi, I head straight to Yuraku in Germantown or Momo Taro in Rockville- Frederick just doesn't cut it, much to my dismay.

Very good sushi. Hidden away in an abandoned shopping center, this place is a hidden treasure for the sushi lover.
