Nooshi-Opinions?

Has anyone been to Nooshi in Dupont somewhat recently? I've never been and wanted to try out the place. I actually want to go for the sushi. Is it good there? Do you believe it's a bad idea to get it on the "dreaded Sunday?"

    I've never had their sushi but they deliver to my house in Glover Park and their grilled chicken noodle soup is my go-to food when I'm sick.

      Indeed, my favorite dish there is the grilled chicken noodle soup and its not on the menu

        Really? Strange. It's on all of the carry out/delivery menus.

          I don't think I have ever seen it on their menu either.

      The sushi is average. Definitely better than some places in DC, but not even close to the best places in the area. They do a decent job on the rolls, and IIRC, they have some fun rolls to choose from. The noodles are usually the better choice there.

        Definitely get their ginger salad! It used to be my favorite lunch when I worked nearby. Now you've got me wanting some, and it's too far.

          Nooshi's sushi is okay. I work next door, and grabbing a couple boxes to go is a decent lunch, but I'm not sure I would go out of my way for a sit-down meal there.

            I agree...nothing to go out of your way for. As much as I do not like the atmosphere I even think Cafe Asia's sushi is better.

              A few years ago, they sent out a flyer to the neighborhood advertising their sushi happy hour which they called "Funky Sushi". An unfortunate choice of words.

              I haven't had their sushi, but their noodle dishes are great. I lovelovelove the peanut noodles and was so sad when Oodles Noodles, a sister restaurant, closed in Bethesda.

                I just went lately. Their sashimi is on top-notch quality. Just found out that they do direct delivery from Japan two times a week. Whatever I got was very very fresh. The price was totally reasonable. Me and my husband can't enjoyed it more, we are totally satisfied and are very happy with our food and services. I will definitely go back.

                  My original post was written almost a year ago and since then I've tried out Nooshi--I was disappointed. I always order sashimi and think it's the true way to tell the quality and freshness of the place. I found theirs to be just ok and a little chewy. I went during the week so it wasn't on a "dreaded Sunday."

                  I think Singapore Bistro next door is a lot better.

                    I agree Jacey. It used to be one of my favorites but it has fallen off quite a bit. Try Kaz up near Foggy Bottom a couple blocks up.
