A word from Sticky Rice - Baltimore
With its charming atmosphere and bad attitude you won"t find anything quite like it. Our specialty is our fresh sushi bar. With rolls like g.i.jane, shiitake happens and Godzirra, how could you go wrong? Our huge bowls of noodles will satisfy big and small. Sandwiches, large salads, and a selection of other entrees round out the menu. We also feature a kids menu! Don"t forget the (soon to be famous) bucket of tater tots with our special tot sauce. Sticky Rice, established last century has been rolling on and on. Sticky Rice serves up an unusual mix of American, Pan-Asian entrees in a friendly, inexpensive and inviting atmosphere. Spring rolls, potstickers, sushi, noodles and edamame (steamed soy beans) are simple and standard. Lots of choices for vegans and vegetarians!

    This is in an old bar. Although the Asian food, especially sushi, is freshly made and delicious, the staff is not Asian nor is the decor. Enjoy the place for what it IS! In the heart of Fells Point, it is easy to find and the place lends itself to totally casual.

    I've been to sticky rice a number of times and usually really like it. They have a great selection of dishes that meet just about any dietary restrictions. This visit they were out of a lot of items. The service was slow even though the restaurant was not very full. Still good food and atmosphere, so I'll keep coming.

    Went here for the first time on Thursday, had heard a lot about it. Got there and was seated right away in this tiny separate room without windows called "the church" away from everyone else when the dining room was empty. Server was okay, didn't add anything spectacular, just took orders and delivered food. The apps were great.. Edemame and potstickers, but that's hard to mess up. My husbands noodle bowl was good as he put it, but my sushi roll (Drawn & Buttered) was quite possibly the most bland thing I have ever eaten. Just crab, tempura shrimp and cucumber. The seaweed wrapper was on the outside making it really chewy. The dipping garlic butter... Bland as well, I was longing for a spicy sauce or anything for that matter.

    I can't count how many times I've ordered food from or dined in with Sticky Rice, and I've never been disappointed. Not only does Sticky Rice offer a wide variety of appetizers, sushi rolls, or other items- but everything is fresh and delicious. My friends and I always order the bucky-o tots and the Gouchland roll is one of my all-time favorites. They also have a well stocked bar! I highly recommend Sticky Rice. :)

    It's a trendy little neighborhood spot, very hipster. The sushi was ok. Not terrible, but not noteworthy and what is with all the cream cheese??!! Almost every roll involves cream cheese. We ordered 3 and had to request no cream cheese. I have eaten a lot of sushi in a lot of places and this certainly wasnt the worst but definitely not memorable.

    I love that the old bar, Friends, became Sticky Rice! Great original Maki dishes and fantastic noodles. It has become a regular favorite. It can be insanely busy somewhat randomly so even at odd hours my wife and I have started to make reservations.

    Love this place, but food was sub-par on this particular visit. The chicken bites appetizer was a joke - both the portion size and the quality left a lot to be desired. We'll be back...Guessing this was just an off-night for the kitchen. Won't ever get the chicken app again though.

    Food was excellent and reasonably priced, although the one roll was small, but our server warned us in advance. Atmosphere is distinctly "Baltimore bar": lots of drawing on the walls, ecclectic music, etc.

    I was definitely surprised by the atmosphere, when I first walked into Sticky Rice...it definitely felt more like a typical bar in Fells Point rather than an Asian restaurant. The menu is large, the service and kitchen are slow, the food was fine...a little pricey for the food just being fine.

    I decided to give this place a try with my sister who loves sushi. I have only tried sushi twice (cooked stuff only, nothing raw) and wasn't crazy about it. There were so many sushi options that looked good on the Sticky Rice menu so I decided to try again. We had the Godzirra roll and I really liked it! I also had a spinach salad and tots that were also good. I definitely will go back to try some other kinds of sushi!

    I was hosting an out-of-town friend who is vegan. When I showed her some menus of options in Baltimore, she immediately chose Sticky Rice, which I'd hoped she would. I first fell in love with Sticky Rice when I lived in Richmond and was anxious to see if the Baltimore location shared the same tradition of great food... it did!!! She was impressed with the number of creative vegan options available to her. She was even more impressed with the quality of the food. Our one mistake, perhaps, was ordering the bucket of tots. They are delicious but there are SO MANY tots that my friend didn't get to sample as much food as I'd wanted her to. Maybe next time. Now I need to visit the DC location.

    My fiance and I double dated with some friends at Sticky Rice last Saturday and it was a great spot. The staff was friendly, the beer decently priced and the food was great. There's plenty of indoor and outdoor (sidewalk) seating with a surprisingly large bar. You should definitely try the sweet potato tots app with the sweet ranch dip...not typically on a sushi menu but worth while. We'll be coming back soon!

    Been to Sticky Rice bunches of times but I think I finally hit on the formula for maximum enjoyment: be tipsy before you get there, and don't hold back when you order. Usually I'm all diet-conscious or money-conscious, but this time my best friend and I got the Sticky Balls (fattening) and the Omakase for two (expensive), and it was the ideal order. The fish in the Omakase was so fresh and the Sticky Balls are rich and crunchy perfection. Also, they were playing hits of the 80s on their satellite radio station, so being tipsy made us excited about every single song.

    Went with a group of friends on a Sunday night, made a reservation but we wouldn't have needed it. Food was great, we sampled a bunch of different sushi rolls and the bucket of tots. Service was mostly ok, but our waitress dissapaeared for a while and we were out of drinks. Good experience all things considered, would go back.
