Because of he inauguration, I had such a time finding parking, even got locked in the parking garage for 30 minutes. The extremely friendly fast service, beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious food made it all worth it in the end. The Lucille Ball adventure to get here made it all the more fun since the food is so good. I... More

Their menu is simple and comprehensive. It has also lunch boxes. The prices were good and the sushi that we ordered was delicious. We would prefer it a little bit colder! I highly recommend it!

I was looking for a simple place with good food, and that's exactly what I found at Momoyama. The staff (I presume husband and wife) were very very nice and efficient. The food was excellent. I went there twice during the week so it was rather quiet and the service was extremely fast. To top it all off, the prices... More

I passed this place overy the summer so when it came up as a 9 minute walk from the court hour, once we were given a 90 minute lunch break before jury selection, I headed over here for sushi on a Thursday afternoon in December. It's really small; there are tables with seating for 12, 3 or 4 seats at... More

The down and dirty - excellent sushi. The down and dirtier - it's tiny, understaffed, and very very Japanese. We came on a Saturday night and were happy that it wasn't busy. There are only 7 - two seater tables and a sushi bar with a half dozen seats. Seriously tiny. It was staffed by a Japanese couple - he... More

We ate here twice. The staff are lovely, the sushi is very good and the lunchtime menu is very good value. There's an outside space which is probably quite nice when Washington isn't on a par with the surface of the sun.

We needed a reasonably priced place close to our hotel. Located this reataurant nearby, and am very happy with our experience. It was a good, solid dinner. Quaint place, with polite staff. Fit our tummy and pocketboom needs perfectly.

Small sushi establishment just near Capitol Hill and the Union Station. Do not expect to be seated, just grab a seat, go to the counter and order some food. Ramen is good as well the Soba noodles and the sushi rolls. Not expensive at all, is a must go place when looking for sushi/Japanese cuisine in the area. I will... More

This place was small, but had good, decently-priced food. When I got there, none of the staff seated me or told me to seat myself, so I waited for about 5 minutes before I was told to seat myself. I ordered the lunch special, the Momo Box, and the food came quickly. The Momo Box came with california rolls, miso... More

This place was fine, nothing special, but nothing wrong. My girlfriend and I were at the botanic gardens in the evening and we wanted sushi. We walked a few blocks and found this place. It was fairly late at night and we were the only people there. The sushi was good, but the rolls seemed small and expensive. We ordered... More
