We are typically ordering out from Kotobuki - there's simply not enough space. The sushi is reliably good, and well prices.
We'll be back for more!

i dont even want to write a review because i dont want kotobuki to get crowded. this is one of those places that is so good you just want to keep it to yourself.
the best sushi you will find in DC, and definitely the best prices. The entire places has like 8 tables so dont expect to sit down right away on a weekend. but that being said, service is fast and the food is worth a 20 minute wait.

It is excellent in sushi and unique hamameshi. The problem is it is small and you may need to wait if you can not carry it out.

This is the best bargain sushi restaurant in DC. It is worth taking a taxi from your hotel if you are a party of 3 or 4 people. My recommendation here is Chirashi ($10.95 for lunch) but everything is good here including Kamameshi set. Owned by the Japanese and Sushi chefs are all native Japanese too.

My brother didn't want to drive, so we took the bus here on a Sat.

Once we got there, the place got crowded quickly.

Food was good & fresh. Staff was friendly & efficient. Price very reasonable.

That being said, nothing really wow'd me.

So if price & freshness are your only two criteria, then eat here. Otherwise, you may find something just as good in your neighborhood.
