This place has become my favorite place to go for sushi. They offer a wide variety of sushi that fits everyone's taste level. If you want simple, low cost, sushi, then come here. If you like to try out new, off the menu sushi specials that may be a bit pricey but worth every bite, then come here. Service is... More

This is NOT an authentic Japanese restaurant. I don't know about the sushi quality--only get it at an authentic, Japanese owned restaurant. Their miso ramen was OK, but not the best or cleanest.

Had 3 restaurants in the area that serve Japanese/sushi - I think we made the right decision. Everything was excellent - fresh and tasty.

I was in town for a 2 day conference. The lunch here was so good I returned again before leaving. Great lunch specials which give you nice variety. Sushi was very fresh and well-prepared.

We ordered take out food and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We had the Mexican roll, Alaskan Roll, Florida Roll and Unagi Maki for sushi. All were great. Also ordered the Chicken Pad Thai, Veggie Tempura, and Spring Rolls which we enjoyed just as much. Miso soup and rice came with the Pad Thai. Brown... More

I went there twice. I ordered seafood ramen, once in miso soup, and another in soy sauce. The soup is just right and clear, not overly strong and yet with well distinguishable taste. The ramen texture is good and the seafood are simply fresh and firm.

I lived for over a decade in Japan, so sushi is something that I have gotten somewhat picky about. Tono does a good job. The cuts of sushi are slightly smaller than one might expect. Everything I had was fresh.

This restaurant is located in a string of restaurants adjacent the Woodley Park Metro station. Decor is ok but nothing special and as with many restaurants in the area seating can be crowded. Menu is Asian, not just sushi. Sushi is quite good, but the variety of sushi is not up to that offered elsewhere. Menu is a confusing mix... More
