Foursquare Tips

  • Belly up to the bar between 5:30 and 7pm for half-price sushi, wine and beer. Via
  • Great window seating and perfect spicy tuna rolls
  • Cute tables by the bar overlooking 17th St if you don't have a res. Braised pork belly + spicy tuna roll = perfect meal.
  • Sitting at the sushi bar and watching the chefs do their deft blade work on hulking slabs of fish, making edible art with Zen-like calm, provides some insight into what makes Sushi Taro special.
  • Happy hour with half price sushi and drinks from 5:30 until 7. But get here early, it feels up quick.
  • *** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the wild yellowtail, sweet shrimp, uni or panko-crusted chicken.)
  • Absolutely fresh and delicious sushi.. Try the rainbow roll and the fun tempura roll.. Happy hour 50% off between 5-7 pm
  • Best happy hour in DC! Get the salmon, eel, and fatty tuna roll with scallion. Rainbow roll, shrimp tempura are a close second. Yellowtail was a nice addition. Spicy tuna roll was only okay.
  • If the set dinner is too rich for your blood, try their amazing lunch specials.
  • Meh. Been here twice. Still not impressed. Overpriced and mediocre compared to Omen in NYC.
  • Traditional Kaiseki and Sushi tasting menus are amazing. It's a bit pricey but it's an authentic, delicious experience. Wonderful service. You get what you pay for.
  • Avoid this place. I loved it - then they gave me food poisoning, next bad service and then they lied about a sushi happy hour. Too expensive for what you don't get. go somewhere else and save money
  • Easily the best sushi in town. It's pricey, but it's also a really solid experience. They also have great lunch specials -- bowls of ramen and so on. Can't go wrong here.
  • Wow! sushi is amazing! This place is high end! If you can't decide get a sushi or sashimi omakase!
  • The sashimi of fatty tuna, air-shipped from Japan is on the best dishes list in Washingtonian Magazines 100 Best Restaurants issue.
  • Great service. Delicious food. Visited during restaurant week and loved it. Green Tea ice cream is not too sweet, just right. Also, sake pairings are tasty and strong!
  • Bento lunches are balanced, filling, and delicious!
  • This place will ruin you for sushi elsewhere in the city.
  • Best sushi experience in DC. Try the sea cucumber.
  • Awesome during restaurant week! Be prepared for a 4 course meal
