Sushi
The Sushiko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

Our server was lovely and the service was perfect, not rushed but attentive. The food was of course delicious!

As always, Sushiko excelled at serving absolutely delicious Japanese cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere with great, attentive service. It’s my favorite DC area restaurant!

UPDATE:

Their handling of the Coronavirus fears is OUTSTANDING!

We witnessed them sanitize tables with gloves after each guest left. They did their best to space patrons and made us feel incredibly safe. Until this global nightmare is over, I am thankful for Sushiko’s entire team taking it seriously.

FOOD:

We have been faithfully enjoying Sushiko for the last 15 years. having been to the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, and some of the higher end sushi spots in the DC area, Sushiko remains our absolute favorite sushi spot.

The fish is ALWAYS fresh. What makes Chefs Piter and Handry the best of all is their commitment to sourcing the finest fish no matter where. The specials are always awesome. Is the best uni coming from Tokyo this month? They’ll source it. The specials menu will always list where the fish is from, which is a cool feature.

We continue to appreciate their hospitality and the wonderful job the managers and servers (like Coco) do to make us feel at home.

We normally have sashimi and other seafood dishes, but this time, we opted for the chicken dumplings, the pork buns, and the pork ribs. Everything was outstanding, as always.

Lunch Bento Boxes are a great value, with soup, and variety of sushi, sashimi. Fish is always so very fresh. We always enjoy and have extra to take home. Service was excellent, attentive and quick. Always enjoy and will return.

Not sure if the fact that we came latter than usual is the reason but the service was rushed and not as attentive as usual. Still and all, one of the best sushi restaurants around.

Outstanding sushi, and really really appreciated the reasonable noise level in the dining area. We eat a lot of sushi, and Sushiko is clearly at the top of our list for both quality and lovely experience.

Broke my rule and went out for dinner on V Day. Mistake. Some of the sushi must not have been properly refrigerated or sat too long before being served. I'll spare the details.

I’ve been to sushiko many times - and have always been of the opinion that their sushi is a cut above. It’s typically fresh, well prepared and presented in a wonderful and beautiful way. My experience last night was notably different. The sushi was ok - but only ok. It was just like the average sushi I get in so many other places. Disappointed. Service and ambiance are very nice.

Our server, Diana, was a gem. And the sushi was amazing. We tried the "tuna 6 ways," and I have never tasted fish so fresh and tender. It absolutely melted in our mouths. The sushi specials--hamachi from Spain and salmon from New Zealand--were excellent. The chicken gyoza (dumplings) were excellent as well. All in all, a spectacular experience!

Every time we come back to Sushiko we have an amazing meal. Not only is the food delicious but the attention to detail in how the food is prepared is wonderful. And while everyone who works there is kind, attentive and provides wonderful service, my family asks to sit in Jason’s section if possible because he gets to know his patrons. He remembers us from visit to visit and at one point he brought our drink orders to the table right after we sat down (remembering from the previous visits). He adds to the enjoyment of our dining experience. We will happily return and recommend this restaurant highly

Okonomi 30$ was only 6 pieces.
If you go there to fill you stomach with sushi, don't go.

People don’t come to sushi place to eat tasteless shrimp as part of the chef choice. Please replace it with another moderate priced fish like flounder.

Meal was pretty good, and great value for restaurant week menu. The area we were seated did not have a great ambiance and the service was not great in that room. Very disappointed with the tuna as it was lackluster. The rest of the food was excellent.

Even though they are a $$$ restaurant in Chevy Chase, I cannot say RW deal is good. What I had was basically sushi sashimi combo with soup, which can be offered $18 in regular menu. So why bother?

As always, Sushiko delivered a delicious, creative, well-presented Japanese dinner. You will be hard pressed to find fresher, higher quality sushi in the DC area. Pricey, but if you feel like splurging, you wont be disappointed. Recommend the Element Roll and the chef’s special sashimi.

There are several good sushi restaurants in the Washington DC area but Sushiko has been our first choice for some time, now. The sushi is fresh and of the highest quality, as you might expect, and there is always a generous selection of special items to offer a sense of variety, even to regular customers like us. Service is outstanding but subtle--there is never a rushed feeling about a meal here. The place never disappoints.
