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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Several delicious uni options: Maine & Cali uni sashimi, uni & tofu dish, uni tempura. Intimate ambiance, great service, love it.
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
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.
Get the Sushi tasting menu ... amazing experience and totally worth it! Do it through village vines and get 30% off! Also a free bottle of saki on Tuesdays!
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.
I've often heard that Sushi Taro has the best sushi in town; however, I don't eat sushi. It may have good sushi, but their cooked dishes are horrible.
Absolutely fresh and delicious sushi.. Try the rainbow roll and the fun tempura roll.. Happy hour 50% off between 5-7 pm
Natto. Exquisite. This is one of three of the best reasonably priced sushi places in the DC area
Came here for restaurant week lunch. The fish was very fresh and everything was delicious.
Cute tables by the bar overlooking 17th St if you don't have a res. Braised pork belly + spicy tuna roll = perfect meal.
Really great lunch deals. The best authentic and fresh Nigiri Sushi ever in this town.
Great happy hour (ends at 7). Half off some rolls, beers, wines, sake, etc. Expensive place, affordable HH
*** 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
Happy hour with half price sushi and drinks from 5:30 until 7. But get here early, it feels up quick.
The sashimi of fatty tuna, air-shipped from Japan is on the best dishes list in Washingtonian Magazines 100 Best Restaurants issue.
Amazing food, super attentive staff... Orgi is an excellent service staff!! Best Japanese I've had yet in dc.
Fatty tuna is worth every penny. Skip croquettes, wagyu, and shrimp. Salmon and yellowtail only ok.
Come early to stake out a seat for happy hour at this excellent 11-seat sushi bar.
Wow! sushi is amazing! This place is high end! If you can't decide get a sushi or sashimi omakase!
If you miss their old menu, you can get maki and nigiri at the bar. It's a special bar menu. Yum.
Bento lunches are balanced, filling, and delicious!
If the set dinner is too rich for your blood, try their amazing lunch specials.
Try the Yuzu Sour. So refreshing! Also, lunch here is the best value in town.
Excellent spot for talking business over lunch. Nice view. Good sushi. Great vibes.
AMAZING SUSHI & a variety of saki! Definitely a great place to go.
The omakase counter is an amazing experience. Highly recommend.
Best sushi experience in DC. Try the sea cucumber.
Meh. Been here twice. Still not impressed. Overpriced and mediocre compared to Omen in NYC.
Order Omekase style, chefs won't steer you wrong with freshest straight from Japan.
Awesome during restaurant week! Be prepared for a 4 course meal
This is quality sushi with lots of special fish. They didn't have my Uni sushi barameter
The sushi was quite tasty here! You MUST try the braised pork belly! It's to die for!
This place will ruin you for sushi elsewhere in the city.
Holy Crap...the arugula roll with ginger sauce is amazing!
Excellent sushi, but get there early for dinner.
Great window seating and perfect spicy tuna rolls
Have the hojicha pudding. Perfect delicate dessert after a fine meal.
Have the slow braised pork belly in soup. OMG it's heaven!
