Address:1117 North 19th Street, Arlington, VA
Phone:(703) 525-3171
Reviews:"At $9.95 lunch, and $14.95 dinner this is one of the most amazing values around."
- Fred Zimmer ( [October 18th 1997]
"Excellent sushi! Some of the best tekka (tuna) Iīve had. In addition to having 10-15 types of sushi on the lunch buffet, they also offer a wide variety of cooked items for the afraid-to-try-sushi. Go ahead and bring them along, though, since groups of five or more people get a discount on their already great prices. Just donīt forget to add in the cost of parking (there is a §5 lot next door) when stopping off at the bank."
- Ralph E. Nelson (
"Excellent service and excellent sushi! If you donīt see what you want on the line, just ask and they will bring it to your table at no additional charge!"

Opened:Lunch, dinner
Review:"Atami is a bargain-basement sushi joint crammed into a tiny storefront location in the Clarendon area of Arlington. Their main draw is a $24.95 all-you-can-eat dinner special, although they also serve a variety of Japenese and Chinese dishes. The sushi is average, and their nigiri tends to have twice as much rice as it should -- perhaps to fill up hungry diners' stomachs with rice instead the more expensive fish? Who knows. Either way, there are better spots in the area, but Atami is not a bad choice if you're in a pinch. It's a good place for sushi novices to experiment without having to worry about emptying their wallets. "

Reviews:" Excellent spider roll, and their spicy salmon roll is to die for! "
- Jim Crookston ( [February 1st 2002]
"This place is ok. Very clean and organized. The sushi, however, lacks something. I don't know if it is the fact that they pre-slice all their fish or that they pass off chutoro as toro - It tastes inferior - like supermarket sushi. I'm sure it's fine for California Rollers and those who stick to tekka maki, but if I'm going to pay regular prices on sushi, I expect it to be a greater quality than it is here. "
- The Guy [March 6th 2002]
"We respectfully disagree. As serious Sushi mavens, having tasted most varieties in dozens of restaurants throughout the U.S., including Hawaii, Matuba sushi is consistently the finest and the freshest. In fact, it's our favorite anywhere! "
