|Reviews:||"Excellent sushi bar with wide variety of choices. Prices moderate at around $100 for two, sushi plus sake. Elegant authentic decor. Visited with close Japanese friend who felt very comfortable. She thought it was the best Japanese restaurant in DC."|

| ||"I recently worked right up the street from Japan Inn. Japan Inn's atmosphere is
so soothing. The food and service is outstanding. The Nebayaki Udon soup is truly delicious, as
is the sonomono salad, and the lunchbox. Slightly pricey but worth it. Quiet Japanese music is
piped into the restrooms. :-) I absolutely miss this place!

|Review:||"This is the best sushi in DC. Bar none.
The most striking thing about their sushi is the seaweed. It is the softest seaweed I have ever encountered. The rice also has an amazing consistency, to the point that many rolls and nigiri simply melt in your mouth. It is amazing. Some particular favorites are the seared salmon belly, which is prepared with a blow torch before being covered with a wonderful soy lemon sauce and fresh lemon juice; the toro, which truly does melt in your mouth, and the DC roll, made with eel, egg, cucumber and avacado.
The service is also amazing. The food is brought swiftly. Furthermore, the chefs, including Kaz himself, are very friendly. I have gotten to know them well as I am a regular customer.
The ambiance is very peaceful and relaxing, the food is amazing, and the service is excellent. If you want sushi in DC, Kaz is your place.

|Reviews:||"This is a great place to go for lunch. It's so hidden and small that you might actually miss the restaurant itself. (Near 'My Brother's Place', 'Capital Cafe' & 'The Flying Scotsman'). The Sushi is fresh, prepared in front of you, and you can walk in, order, and walk out with your order in 10 minutes. A small seating area is available if you prefer to eat there. It is inexpensive, yet extremely well-prepared.

| ||"It's too bad that this place is so off the beaten path (for the owners, that is--I actually prefer it). This place is definitely giving Kaz Sushi a run for for its money. The sushi is the best in town and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. Also, the staff is very attentive and personable. A top knotch place. Move over Kaz, Momoyama is king!"|

| ||"A Most Unpleasant Experiece - This restaurant has definitely gone downhill recently. We were literally rushed through our meal and pushed out the door so that the restaurant could squeeze in another diner. After spending $100 for dinner for two I don't appreciate being pushed out the door before we even finished our sake. The wait staff was rude and the manager was not apologetic. Wish so many good sushi restaurants in DC, I would skip this one from now on.

| ||"Hmmm...delivery sushi. I was suspicious. Couldn't possibly be good. Well here's the bottom line, if you're in your apartment and you don't want to leave but have a hankering for sushi, call up sushi-to-go. It is far from the best sushi in DC, but it is above and beyond what I expected from a delivery sushi place. I've found the sushi to be generally a bit wasabi-heavy for my taste, but it is satiating. The prices are also very reasonable. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

|Reviews:||"Generally top-flight fish in a cool, modern atmosphere, with a good compliment of sakes to go along with it. Slightly disappointed by the uni, which wasn´t quite as soft and quivering as I like it, but all in all quite good meal; about $60 per very hungry person. Service slow, though. "|

| ||"I have recently become involved in the internet and was appalled (sp) to read your review of Sushi-Ko restaurant in DC. I have eaten sushi and Japanese food all over the world and would put Sushi-Ko up against any place I have eaten- and found it to be a winner. It is possible that your reviewer has not been there lately, or is unaware of the subtile differences in japanese cuisine... the Uni may not have been the very best that day, but I can say that is not normal for the restaurant. The chefs have cooked for the James Beard Foundation in NYC; recently been to France to prepare special meals for select vintners; have been invited to the Hyatt in Fukuoka, Japan to prepare a special feast, and are the restaurant of choice for the Japanese Embassy in DC. How can you not recognize them as one of the best? Needless to say, I am a great fan. In fact, I live in Texas and go out of my way to eat at Sushi-Ko whenever I´m in the area. I´ll be in Baltimore this month and will take the train over one nite just to eat at Sushi-Ko. If you want any more info, let me know.

| ||"Frequented Sushi-Ko regularly 1992-94; returned to D.C. in 2000 to find they have
redecorated from traditional Japanese to dark techno-metallica. Apparently spent so much on the
decor that they have to charge a fortune for miniscule portions. I was disappointed, dejected, and
will never go back. There are better places in Arlington, Virginia. (9/2001)

| ||"Well, one could imagine Sushi-ko could be the end of the sushi world in TX. For a
7-year resident of DC there is a different angle though. It is with sadness that I must admit that
ever since it got renovated some year and a half ago and the main chef left to open another venue
(more on that later) SushiKo has completely lost any of its charm and undisputed leadership in the
world of sushi that it definitely posessed in the past. Sadly, but it is now easilly defeated by
any basement fast-food type of outfit in any respect: quality, freshness, size, etc. But prices
are still sky-high... For those who could appreciate the old sushi-ko I would recommend to try Katz
Sushi Bistro on 18th and I--that's the new leader of the sushi universe in DC, and it was started
by the former chef form Sushiko too! For those out of town, it could be a good mind-expanding
exercise too, definitely worth a trip from TX! Good luck!

| ||"Less than average. I have eaten at many places better and a few places worse than this. The price was good but the pieces were small and the taste was, well, less than average. The uni was not sweet and seemed a little warm. I will not return here again because there are too many better places.
| ||- Robin (firstname.lastname@example.org) [March 30th 2005]|
| ||"I have eaten here probably fifty times and have never come away unsatisfied. It is a nice, unpretentious sushi restaurant serving the highest quality fish available in DC at very good prices. Naturally, if you want fusion style sushi, go to Kaz, and if you want a more traditional style meal at Tokyo prices go to Makoto, but if you want wonderfully fresh sushi at a good price, go to Tono.
