Great Sushi Rolls

I'd like to introduce a new sushi convert to a place which does a good job with rolls. They're still leerie of fish which is why I'm not looking to take them to places like Sushi Taro, Kotobuki, etc. I'd appreciate any suggestions for places that have tasty sushi rolls at reasonable prices. Places in NOVA near Falls Church would be a plus but not a requirement.

    They have a lot of creative rolls and other fun items like tater tots at Sticky Rice in H Street NE. It could be a good intermediate step for a sushi newbie. I have never tried it myself but have heard good things. It's always been too busy when I've tried to eat there, so check out if they take reservations if you're planning for a weekend trip.

      Oya and Sei both have some non-fish options, though I've been a bit disappointed in Sei lately. Plus, Oya has happy hour sushi prices, so you can try some without feeling really guilty!

        Yeah, Sticky Rice is probably a good stepping stone for a sushi newbie. I've never been impressed with their sushi, but it's totally fine, and like hamster said, there's a bunch of other stuff there too.

        Oya is a lot nicer in ambiance, and I haven't tried Sei.

          Is the problem all seafood or raw seafood?

            I should've been more specific. They're still warming up to the whole raw fish thing.

              ok.I am no expert but I assume you know there are usually many cooked seafood and uncooked vegetable rolls at most sushi places that I have seen and you can tell by the descriptions. You are just looking for a good sushi without having to be top of line for raw seafood? I only go Sushi with my spicy tuna loving friend at Sushi King in Columbia ( I know nothing in Va but there are many I am sure). It has many really good
              cooked items and they are marked on the menu. Look
