Sushi Ko - Chevy Chase
Amazing Sushi ExperienceWe sat at the sushi bar and just asked Chef to put in front of us what he thought we'd like and he did not disappoint.
Just let him create and you'll be happy about what you get.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperlative inventive sashimi!This place has really cranked up the level of the seafood ever since Chef Handry took over. Amazing and original sashimi dishes, plus an interesting wine list. They recommend red Burgundy or Oregon Pinot Noir to pair with sashimi, and it's a great combination!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than everSushi Ko was always one of our favorites, and now it's even better. Whether the rumors of a new chef are true or not, there are some splendid recent additions to the menu. Best is Tune Element (or is it Element Tuna?) which absolutely sparkles with flavor.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous sashimiOf all the DC area's Japanese restaurants, Sushiko Chevy Chase is consistently the best. Amazing cooked dishes, like the soft crab Kara-age and the eel are fabulous if you don't want raw fish, but the sashimi small plates are phenomenal. Totally recommended.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMStunning off-the-menu sashimi!Sushi Chef Handry is a Michelin-star-worthy creator of phenomenal fusion dishes. Just sit at the sushi bar and ask him to do whatever he wants. You will be amazed.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Sushi Chef Is PhenomenalThey have a new Sushi Chef named Handry, and he is a total wizard. Forget the menu. Just sit in front of him and ask him to create whatever he feels like. It's an unbelievable experience. The Ankimo is amazing.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but priceyI took my wife for mother's day. We enjoyed the food and overall dining experience. But to feed a family and not feel hungry when you leave you end up ordering more. The final bill ended up as a bit of a shock. The opentable rating system needs a value category. Sushiko would only get 2 stars for value. Even though I enjoyed the food I will probably pick a different sushi restaurant next time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to try Sushi KoWe decided to try Sushi Ko because we were looking for a 4-5 star Yelp restaurant that was open for lunch and we are so glad we did. We sat at the sushi bar and ate amazing sushi and sashimi prepared just for us. It was fresh and flavor-packed. My husband liked the wine list, and he is hard to please. He likes wine lists that include wines that are good values at all price points. The service was amazing - attentive without being instrusive at all. We had a fantastic time and plan to go again even though we do not live close by.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother new dish -- grilledAnother new dish -- grilled sweet peppers with bonito flakes! Fabulous stuff. Plus, Annie is a wonderful wait person.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth findingGood sushi, very fresh, varied menu, chef willing to modify.

We shared a lunch of seaweed salad, crunchy spicy salmon roll, and hamachi roll. Ginger ice cream was a refreshing way to cap the meal.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThey have a new Sushi chefThey have a new Sushi chef named Handry, who is coming up with some amazing dishes. Sushiko now also has ankimo (monkfish liver), which is sushi's answer to foie gras (but you have to ask for it -- it's not on the menu)! Phenomenal stuff.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe new Sushi-bar chef HenryThe new Sushi-bar chef Henry has created a bunch of new dishes, including a seared Suzuki (rockfish) that is out of this world. Sushiko has really stepped up the level of its sashimi and cooked dishes. Major kudos!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our meal.We really enjoyed our meal. My son chose to have sushi for his 9th birthday. He loved Sushiko!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother good visit ...Pristine fish and attentive table service have made us Sushi Ko regulars. We especially like the crunchy spicy tuna rolls. The DC area is chock-a- block with restaurants but precious few to which we want to return again and again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMore tasty sushiI'm Japanese and a resident of Bethesda.I invited my guests and ordered the best rank sushi menu. As our conclusion, the taste of sushi was not enough the best as we expected. But atmosphear of table and attitude of employees were good!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed with SushiNever disappointed with Sushi Ko.. my favorite Janpanese restaurant.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving tickets to see theHaving tickets to see the Kodo Drummers of Japan at Constitution Hall, SushiKo was the perfect spot for an early dinner. Food and presentation were very nice, but going so early on a Saturday is definitely "children's hour." Though we had someplace to be, we never felt rushed and service was prompt and effective. Will return at a later hour to enjoy with even more leisure time.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for lunch this timeWe went for lunch this time (very unusual; it's usually a dinner place for us), and had yet another lovely meal. I don't often order tempura veggies, but given how good they are here, I will have to make an exception!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an off-menu item --We had an off-menu item -- the Burikama, which is a roasted yellowtail jaw. Think of it as the seafood equivalent of big meaty ribs. Amazing preparation. We were a group of 7 and spent probably 4 hours at dinner ordering course after course. Fabulous place!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy group of sashimi geeksMy group of sashimi geeks convenes here a couple times a month. Totally delish.
