Another restaurant near the Bethesda Doubletree that I have tried. Cozy spot with really good service. Sushi was fresh and good sized. Nothing bad to say really. If you are a sushi fan you are likely to find Maki Mali to your liking.

I love coming here for lunch and getting the Bento Boxes. I've found that they're a decent price and a perfect amount of food for me. It's also nice to get a dish that has a little of everything (rice, dish, sushi, et al). I have had their sushi and it's pretty good. I judge a restaurant by their eel... More

The fish is really fresh, nicely cut and tasty. Service is ok, decently fast. The place is very basic but I guess it's part of the deal. Would come back.

Love their sushi... I went twice in one week. When there is more time, this is a good place to dine inside and relax. It is a small place but you are never to feel like it is overcrowded.

A small restaurant on the outskirts of Bethesda, it offers a decent but not outstanding sushi menu and a few noodle dishes.

Raw fish dishes above average. Tuna poke special excellent. Service slow-limited staff. Menu more extensive than expected.

This is a tiny restaurant across the street from the Doubletree where we were staying. One of the hotel staff recommended it for a quick dinner - he was right, the food is fresh and tasty. The shrimp and vegetable tempura appetizers were cooked perfectly and were served hot. The sushi was beautifully presented and was "thumbs WAY up" good.... More

I enjoyed the volcano roll though my son complained of the fish roe they sprinkled all over his California roll- not their issue. They brought my son's order and then mine, 5 minutes later. It's a small shop and sushi normally comes as prepared but they were too far off on this one. The server was very polite but the... More

My wife and I have tried practically every sushi spot in the Bethesda and this has become our favorite. It is consistent, very reasonably priced, and takeout is typically ready in 20-30 minutes. We have been here more than a dozen times and have yet to have a bad experience
