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!

Anywhere where you can get homemade tater tots to start and damn good sushi and drinks...Count me in...

Sticky Rice is a Richmond, Va institution and the location in DC is fast approaching that status. On H street which is quickly becoming one of the big hot spots around the Cap Hill area, Sticky Rice is sandwiched in between main local bars and pubs including "The Pug" which is pretty much next door..

Give Sticky Rice a try for wont be disappointed...

Dumplings and rolls were delicious. Great drink selection. GREAT ambiance if you like 90s hip hop and a good time!

Service from the front door to the table was horrible. The host had no real idea what was going on. The server tool our order and we didn't see him again until he brought the check. Worst experience ever.

The service was fantastic, staff very attentive and quick to turn around the tables. My bf and I are vegan and ordered their vegan sushi rolls, which were both creative and tasty, not terribly overpriced.

But BE WARNED: both of us ended up getting a bit sick afterwards. Not sure if it was an issue of cross-contamination, but something ended up churning our stomachs, so if you have dietary restrictions, be sure that the staff is extra careful about it.

Overall, though, the atmosphere was warm, modern, and fun, the food was fantastic, and the staff very friendly and quick. I'd probably eat here again.

I just love Sticky Rice. It's Asian Fusion on point with plenty of vegan/vegetarian options. They just hired a new cocktails menu/drinks specialists, so Bottoms Up! #xoxo #beisos

food was okay, with a pan-Asian selection. Felt the calamari was over-priced, especially for the very small portion. With such a selection of restaurants on H St, probably won't return anytime soon.

Five of us went there after meeting someone coming in at Union Station. It served our purpose - close by, casual, vegetarian options, and children-friendly. We had a fabulous waitress but she was overworked and had to run up and down the stairs all the time. Food was ok but not anything I'd run back there for. TV was not appropriate for kids (not sure about adults, either), so we had to work at avoiding the screen. It was all fine. Just not fabulous.

The service was horrible. The waitress didn't want to give us water, forgot to order our food, even didn't include a pen for the check. Horrendous.

This is in my daughter's neighborhood and we got together for a casual dinner. Clever good combos at very reasonable prices. What kind of food? Hipster Asian is as close as I can come. Noodle bowls, sushi/sashimi, rice dishes. Everything done well if not wowzer-ish. Friendly, attentive server despite the crowd, decidedly noisy but in a happy way. Would definitely go back.

Jake was a great server and she made sure we were well taken care of. The tempura avocado was awesome and the tots were delicious! As not a seafood eater at a sushi restaurant, I really appreciated all the vegetarian options. My husband LOVED his poke bowl.

The food is unexciting. The poke bowl with yellowfin was tasteless.
