Momoyama is a hole in the wall, but has really good food and a friendly staff. The bulgogi buns are fantastic, as is the sushi. The lunch bento boxes are also great - they don't skimp on the food, and it's all good. In nice...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!

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,...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...More
