Sushi in N. Bethesda/Rockville?
I'm supposed to meet a friend for a sushi lunch Friday. Since she's from out of town, I'm in charge of choosing the restaurant. However, I live in N. VA and I don't know sushi places in our meet-up area.
She'll be attending a meeting on Rockville Pike near White Flint. I don't think we have the time to travel into downtown Bethesda or downtown Rockville.
Any suggestions for a reliable, appealing place for sushi? Thanks.
Here are four on the pike between White Flint and Rockville without the parking headaches of downtown Bethesda or Rockville.
Temari Cafe 301-340-7720
1043 Rockville Pike
Hinode Restaurant 301-816-2190
134 Congressional Lane (back corner of Congressional Plaza)
Niwano Hana 301-294-0553
887 Rockville Pike
Sushi House 301-309-0043
1331 Rockville PIke
All OK to quite good and priced that way,not great.Most of the neutral,middle ground reviews are accurate.
Thanks to everyone for the recommendations. We ate at Niwano Hana and had a very good meal. Very fresh, well cut sashimi and wasabi that tasted different -- fresher and more pungent than the usual.
The only drawback was the cost which everyone graciously pointed out. My salmon-tuna-yellow tail sashimi (9 pieces) cost $19.95
I adore Temari Cafe and even though they serve the most delicious Toro nigirizushi it isn't really a sushi restaurant and it is always crowded.
Given the circumstances and limited time available, it would be fair to put in a word for Hiro Sushi which is a fast-food Sushi Bar right there in White Flint on Nicholson.
I get the impression the sushi is on the menu because some people are under the mistaken impression that Japanese eat the stuff three times a day. I would happily spend all my time on their non-sushi items and never get tired of the curry rice, tonkatsu, takoyaki, grilled black cod....
