Can't say enough good things about this place. Good sushi is hard to find and Momo has great sushi. I would certainly go back.

Momo Sushi & Café ranks right up there with some of the best sushi I've had. This small sushi café never fails to disappoint. It's sushi is fresh, fresh, fresh and absolutely delicious. I particularly love some of their specialty rolls...the spider and dynamite among my favorites. I haven't tried them all, but what I have tried makes me want... More

We were undecided about what we wanted to eat - it was one of those times! Near the waterfront in Old Town, Alexandria, we happened upon MoMo Sushi and decided to give it a try. I'm so happy we did! It has now become one of our favorites. It's what I would call "a hole in the wall" kind of... More

Momo is a really small restaurant in Old Town (small downstairs and slightly larger upstairs). Despite the cramped area, the sushi is the best I've found locally. Fantastic food that is always worth seeking out. Don't overlook them!

This place was recommended and I'm glad I went. It's a small place. Nothing fancy but the food was great as was the service. The staff was very friendly. I found the prices to be reasonable; inexpensive when considering the quality. I'm picky when it comes to sushi and I found their food to be very fresh and delicious. I'll... More

We were looking for a local favorite, so came here on the recommendation of the hotel concierge. It's the perfect hole in the wall place that lived up to expectations! I'm not a raw sushi person, so I can only vouch for the deep fried rolls and shrimp tempura roll. Excellent eats! The staff was friendly and atmosphere cozy. It... More

I enjoy this restaurant because I can walk from a friend's house. It is good, not great but reasonable prices and the only sushi place in Old Town worth trying. They have a decent selection of saki. Seating is tight - not a good place for an intimate conversation.

Best sushi in old town. The rainbow roll is delicious. And the chef's special salad is great too. Servers are excellent.

Rather than walk into this natives-love-it hole in the wall with a preconceived notion of what rolls you'll order, I challenge you to come in with an open mind. Chef Eddie is as deft with his blade as he is with his sushi selection. Order a few pieces of chef's choice nigiri. By letting a head chef be your guide,... More
