Cooked octopus for starter is a must. Cold dish but soooo good! Oysters will take your breath away for sure. Just don't fall for it too much :)))
Absolutely fresh and delicious sushi.. Try the rainbow roll and the fun tempura roll.. Happy hour 50% off between 5-7 pm
Great happy hour (ends at 7). Half off some rolls, beers, wines, sake, etc. Expensive place, affordable HH
Happy hour has great deals on the freshest sushi.
Really great lunch deals. The best authentic and fresh Nigiri Sushi ever in this town.
Came here for restaurant week lunch. The fish was very fresh and everything was delicious.
Sofy is am awesome waitress!
Omakase, sushi, sake
Natto. Exquisite. This is one of three of the best reasonably priced sushi places in the DC area
New Zealand king salmon was surprisingly better than the fatty toro. BBQ eel and yellowtail is always good. Sake cod was fine and prawn and veggie tempura were fine. Skip the mushroom diva mushy.
They removed their sushi bar!
This is quality sushi with lots of special fish. They didn't have my Uni sushi barameter
Try the flight of sake.
I love the sushi here
The omakase counter is an amazing experience. Highly recommend.
Housemade udon noodles and salmon belly on rice are great deals here! Sushi is fresh and high-quality. My favorite sushi restaurant in the DC area so far!
Come early to stake out a seat for happy hour at this excellent 11-seat sushi bar.
Skip the udon.
The rainbow roll and mackerel nigiri tastes so fresh and flavorful. Excellent bar seats with great view of 17th st. For a moment you forget you are in DC.
Terrible restaurant week menu
Several delicious uni options: Maine & Cali uni sashimi, uni & tofu dish, uni tempura. Intimate ambiance, great service, love it.
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.
Sushi Taro is closed for lunch on Mondays.
Pretty amazing bonito ceviche roll w cilantro & lime.
If the set dinner is too rich for your blood, try their amazing lunch specials.
Amazing food, super attentive staff... Orgi is an excellent service staff!! Best Japanese I've had yet in dc.
Holy Crap...the arugula roll with ginger sauce is amazing!
Bamboo shoot is amazing.
Meh. Been here twice. Still not impressed. Overpriced and mediocre compared to Omen in NYC.
Sushi omakase offers good sample of the available fish. Yellowtail and tuna are the standouts on the platter. Miso soup is rather unusual. Labeled as Fisherman's Miso, it includes a fish head. Beware.
Fatty tuna is worth every penny. Skip croquettes, wagyu, and shrimp. Salmon and yellowtail only ok.
The sushi tasting menu is almost too much food. Almost.
The sushi was quite tasty here! You MUST try the braised pork belly! It's to die for!
Try the Yuzu Sour. So refreshing! Also, lunch here is the best value in town.
Try the bratwurst
AMAZING SUSHI & a variety of saki! Definitely a great place to go.
Undoubtedly the BEST authentic Japanese food in town. Presentation is stunning and food is immpecable. If its good enough for the Japanese Embassy.. it's definitely worth the price for the experience.
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.
Excellent spot for talking business over lunch. Nice view. Good sushi. Great vibes.
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.
Shrimp tempura has the essence of big mac. My favorite.
*** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the wild yellowtail, sweet shrimp, uni or panko-crusted chicken.) http://wapo.st/rd9N3J
Splurge for fatty tuna. Grilled eel no better than cheaper eel. Eel tempura and avocado is excellent. Yellowtail only okay - nothing special. Spicy tuna is very nice but not a must.
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
Best lunch special in Dupont. Slow service. Lunch bento box with fried chicken or eel was awesome. Too bad only open on weekdays for lunch.
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.
