For sushi or cooked seafood, this place is adorable. Tiny, friendly, and the food is great. Highly recommended.

It was very very nice (my partner). Three of us adults and one youngster ate a great meal. The olders ordered many different types of special rolls. All were served beautifully; the fish was as fresh as could be! The youngster ordered some fried chicken fingers, which apparently were so good that two oldsters finished them easily (not me!).

The sushi was really good! The place is small inside so probably a wait for a table, but it's worth it. We will be back to this place.

This is what sushi should always be about, fresh fish, very clean and organized atmosphere, good value lunch boxes and meals in general. I have eaten here 10 times, each time the sushi meets or exceeds my expectations. Always can tell if the salmon is sweet and fatty that the sushi will be good and it is here.

I don't know that you can really judge sushi by a California roll but, we thought Momo was pretty good. We both had dinner boxes with sushi and teriyaki. My hy husband also had the tempura which was light (for a fried food) which it should be. Parking is right across the street which is also a plus.

Went there around 5pm on a Sunday and it was just starting to get busy. I had heard that due to the small size of the restaurant and the good food there is always a wait, unless you get there early. This is now our new sushi spot in NoVa. Very good rolls with excellent portions of fish in them.... More

Was referred by some locals to eat here. Sushi was good, and was priced as expected (not cheap, not pricey). Nice selection of sake - always enjoy unfiltered sake and they had a couple options. Service was prompt and friendly. Enjoyed.

Off the beaten track in Old Towne Alexandria, this little sushi place is the best sushi that old town has to offer. Their specialty rolls are excellent. The sushi is always fresh and the chef is very imaginative.

We had tried many area sushi restaurants hoping to find an "everyday" one that could stack up against some of the finer, similar places we had tried on the West Coast. We stopped looking once we found Momo. It is no coincidence that this place often has lines out the door. The sushi chefs here are excellent, producing delicious food... More
