Outstanding Sushi on NoVA?

adi Jan 18, 2013 11:39 AM

Hi Looking for suggestions for outstanding sushi in NoVA,omakase would be ideal but really just looking for excellent sushi in NoVa. Preferably with a nice-ish atmosphere to celebrate a friend's birthday.
Thanks in advance

    Ariake in Reston gets good reviews, but I haven't been yet.

      I really enjoy Otani in Sterling (also a location in Chantilly). The staff is excellent, the sushi delicious, and there are always Groupons available.

        I am used by the idea of using a Groupon for omakase.

          Steve -- used or amused?

            Amused. These stupid computer, they remember every mistake I make.

        Tachibana in McLean and Sushi Yoshi in Vienna are my current faves. I don't believe either offers omakase as part of its standard menu, but I've heard other patrons making arrangements for a future omakase meal so I know that can be had at both restaurants.

          Second Tachibana. Not as great as Makoto or Sushi Taro, but they won't stick you with a bill for the month's rent either.

          Although I have been to some passable sushi places in NOVA, I have yet to find one that could be called outstanding. I feel you like you really need to go into DC for that quality of sushi.
