I've been coming here for years, and it's continued to be amazing & excellent every time. If you're expecting it to look amazing or fancy... you'll be disappointed. If you're not willing to potentially sit close to another party... this isn't the place for you. BUT if you want consistently really good sushi you'll love this place.

The best sushi I've had. Mr Kim's rolls are excellent, tight and delicious. And so many to choose from. You get a soup and salad with your meals. Service is great and the servers are friendly and helpful. The box meals are excellent and very filling. Saki and beers are great too. Who could ask for anything more. I love... More

Great sushi, extensive menu. Staff is always helpful. Sometimes gets a little busier than they can handle. Wish they offered more non sushi options.

This restaurant is a no thrills sushi restaurant. It has zero ambience, but it has delicious food. I don't find it "dirty". It's just not new and fresh inside. It could use an updating. We usually get the Redskins roll, Marland roll and the Philli roll. All sushi comes with miso soup, salad with ginger dressing, sweet cucumbers, Kimchi, and... More

The food lacked flavor. It had a good foundation, just seemed that they were being skimpy with the spices. We were disappointed.

Best Sushi, fresh, fast and able to make to order. Squid salad, Korean side dishes and soup complete a fantastic meal. Reminds me so much of Seoul alley dinners after the bars close

Very small cozy place. Mix of sushi and Korean dishes. A good fix for authentic Asian food without driving out to Northern VA in SoMD. May not want to wear very nice clothes to dine as sometimes it soaks up the tempura frying smell. Staff are courteous and food are reasonably priced.

Used to be my favorite place to eat in Waldorf but my last few visits have been a little off...new waitstaff maybe. Don't get me wrong, the sushi is still good...the lunch bento boxes are a great value as is the sushi but it just seems like things have slipped a bit. I know the owner has opened a sports... More

Great sushi, and you can't beat their lunch bento box prices - under $10 for salad, miso soup, tempura, sushi and a main dish. Their kitchen is house made and wonderful.. Also love their gal-bi and bibimbap.

Thank Chris R
