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 sure...you 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.
Really nice atmosphere, relaxed and not rushed.
Great service and food
Eli our was horrible, rude and got our meal wrong as usual.
Always a blast eating at my favorite Sushi restaurant! Food is always fresh and tastes amazing!!
Good food and cool vibe. Unfortunately lackluster table and filthy bathroom.
Service is Excellent. Only try the sushi, it is good but nothing amazing. Great place for drinks, wonderful down to earth bartenders
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.
Sticky rice has really good sushi . There appetizers are always good. There are plenty of options for vegetarians and they have plenty of food choices for kids
We ate out on the patio upstairs and enjoyed tuna bites, tofu bites and shrimp! Creative dishes, fun atmosphere!
My favorite sushi restaurant! Always a great experience, staff is accommodating and the food is always fresh!
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.
Great saki. Good value for sushi rolls. Nice casual place for friends dinner.
Was excited about the Sake Sampler and a diverse menu but it just didn't do it for us. Too noisy, not cozy. The service was great.
They were having issues with gas service upon arrival so sadly we were only able to have cold sushi. While good, I've certainly had better. I do admit that the staff called to warn us ahead of time, and they were very gracious and helpful for something that was out of their control. I'd certainly go back to try it again off of the service alone.
Went in at an off time and had a fantastic experience. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Joked around with us about how much water we were drinking - it was an unreasonably hot day and two of us had just been out running. The food is phenomenal and full of interesting flavors and choices. Numerous vegetarian and vegan options. I had the Dirty Vegan with buckwheat noodles and it was full of flavor , a little spicy, and filling! I was surprised that I had to share a little with my spouse. Fun vibe and decor. I could definitely come back in the future.
Great sushi, our server forgot our miso soup and never asked or filled our drinks. She may had been over booked or just a lousy server
Always love coming here for sushi with friends. The music is pretty loud, but the service is always great and they have great seasonal specials. Definitely recommend taking a cab here, parking is difficult to find!
Food was fine, people were good. It was just too noisy and the staff seemed more than willing to increase the volume on competing noise sources.
This was my first time visiting Sticky Rice. I really enjoyed the food, and my drink, but the Saturday evening DJ downstairs made it incredibly loud, so the already half-inebriated patrons upstairs were talking even louder. It was altogether just too loud in there for my taste. I would go back...at a different time.
Truly creative dishes. The portions are fantasticaly generous. It's tough to decide what to order, since it's also good. The staff is fun and friendly and the vibe makes it feel like a party.
Didn't have brunch menu. They should bring it back.
Delicious food, which includes the healthy food! Fresh fish, incredible poke bowl combinations, wonderful sushi rolls. Also, the bucket of tots is no joke!
The server Elie is horrible, this was our 2nd experience with him and it was not good at all. We will never come for dinner again.
Latest visit showed the place has gone way down hill. Mediocre food. Very poor service. Lackluster in every way.
Awesome place! Really good food, lots of vegan & vegetarian options. Love the old school music videos that play in the background. Pretty good craft beer selection too.
Great restaurant. I have eaten here on two different occasions and on both experiences the service and food was great! I recommend this place and looking forward to returning.
I had a really good friend come in from California and she wanted something "DC specific", so I was like Sticky Rice!! I love love love this place. Great food and service EVERY time I eat here. We had a blast, shared some sticky balls, fried cheesecake and other rolls. Yummy just yummy!!
Food was delicious and good value -- lived up to its reputation. We went on a Friday night and it was quite busy with loud music (good 90s playlist). Service was good though our server was understandably busy and seemed overwhelmed. We don't goto H St often but glad we tried Sticky Rice. Will definitely recommend.
Great experience and food, definitely a fun place to hang out, drink, and eat.
I have never been to this location before. I used to dine at Sticky Rice in Richmond when I lived there. I was so excited to have the Sticky Balls again! My reservation was for 2 and I was the first to arrive. I arrived a couple minutes early and was hoping to order some appetizers to have them ready when my date got there, since we were both starving. I inquired about going ahead and being seated, but I was told that I needed to wait until my other guest arrived. The host told me that I could wait at the bar. I'm in recovery from alcohol addiction and I really did not want to be sitting at a bar, but there was no other option besides going back outside into the cold. I had just made the reservation about an hour beforehand because I thought the restaurant would be busy. The restaurant was clearly not busy. I wish that I had not made the reservation because then I would not have gone through the discomfort of being told my only options for waiting were a bar or the cold. That really put me in a bad place mentally for the actual meal. When my date arrived I told him that I was considering going somewhere else due to the experience I'd had thus far. We decided to go ahead and dine. When we went upstairs almost all of the tables were empty. Our meal was absolutely delicious and the server was attentive, knowledgeable, and gave great recommendations. Other than my negative experience with the host, this was a great experience.
The place has a dive-bar feel which is not a problem and the sushi is good. Besides the sushi, everything is unremarkable. The tuna was overlooked and not well seasoned. The major problem is the service. Our server acted like he was doing us a favor by taking our order or when I pointed out that our plates were visibly soiled. Terrible place to meet for a work lunch but I'll reserve judgement for a casual outing and will only be ordering sushi.
