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!

    We were in a bit of a hurry and although we waited a few minutes for anyone to come greet us, once our server made it, she was very good at seeing that we were able to get our food in a timely fashion. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty! We will definitely return!

    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.

    My husband and I go out at least once a month for sushi. This month, we decided to drive into the city from the suburbs to try something new. We were thrilled with this new (to us) find. Although we had reservations, we decided to sit at the sushi bar. The sushi chefs were very nice to talk to and answered any questions that we had. The sashimi tray was fresh and delicious. And we also tried a couple of the specialty roles. Everything looked so tasty (and wonderfully creative) on the menu, we will definitely be back to try something else new

    Very disappointing! The place was shabby and to me had an odor. I was looking forward to the sushi with lobster that you dipped in drawn butter...but alas, the lobster part was miniscule and was not worth the $14.99 that I paid for it! The rest of my party had a noodle bowl and said it was okay and the hamburger which was dry but edible. Oh yes, I also ordered tofu bites and they were like dry toast...not what I expected at all! I will say our waitress and the rest of the workers were a pleasant bunch. Sorry, but I won't be returning.

    Just went here the other day for lunch and I thought the sushi was excellent. Most places when you get a spicy tuna roll for example the roll won't actually be spicy. This was not the case here. They had some kick behind them and I loved it. The tots were good and I can't complain about the food. The service was ok, a little slow but not necessarily the waitress' fault. It seemed like she was the only one working the lunch crowd and it was fairly busy. Overall a good experience and will definitely return.

    Sticky Rice Baltimore fits right into the "vibe" that is Fells Point. The eclectic décor and music welcomes those who are looking for the funkier side of sushi. However, don't let the funkiness mislead you to believe that the food would be slightly off...nothing could be further from the truth. Their choices of sushi, sashimi, vegetarian options and appetizers are all delicious and fresh...there's even something for those of you who are afraid of sushi! Don't forget to enjoy the cocktails. My favorite has the candied ginger as the garnish!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Sticky Rice. The waitress was great, explaining the various kinds of sushi and was able to recommend one that I loved! I did try the well known sweet potato tots and I was less than impressed, but the rest of the experience made up for that.. I mean, they played Futurama on all of the TVs.. it doesn't get much better than that.

    Sticky Rice is a great sushi spot in downtown Baltimore. The menu offers unique options that a friend of mine called "hipster sushi." It is a little pricey though and the service could be a bit more attentive.
