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!

Service and atmosphere we're top notch. The sweet potatoes tots were fantastic the noodle bowls were nothing to write home about. Would go back but would stick with appetizers and cocktails.

Sticky Rice has an amazing staff and great menu. Lots to choose from and everything was a delight. The happy hour is insane. Get the short ribs , fried chicken and tuna is insane. My wife liked half off wine and got hammered. Kids friendly too

Menu has a ton of options which is great- but it took forever for a very simple roll and one of the bowls. The roll was cold by the time it came but the bowl was very tasty. Server was pleasant and it was not too crowded- this is why we expected our food to come much quicker. Overall a great place, just a little disappointed this trip!

This was THE most amazing meal I have ever gotten to eat. So good, were coming back tonight. 2 days later. The vegan options are amazing. Well thought out and way easy to pick out on the menu. Try the veganzira even if you aren't vegan. It's amazing. This is the new place for us.

The food was good. Reasonably priced. The main thing that brought the score down was the fact that every time my party needed something, we had to find our server. That affected the tip that was given.

I've been to Sticky Rice before and I plan on coming back. I got the sushi burrito and we had the Mongolian Beef rice bowl (I think that's what it was called). Anyway, everything was great, drinks were always filled.

Busy restaurant with no seating left- thankfully I reserved ahead of time, requires reservation- and very loud music as well as sounds of dishes clashing in the kitchen and people talking over each other. Very loud. Nonetheless, it is a great place to take your company if you like the idea of "privacy" in the form of only just being able to hear each other talk. No one else around you can hear you over the other sounds on a busy night. The food is very good and the service isnt terribly long of a wait, but the waiter that served us was quite forgetful about refilling a drink or ordering another dish or getting the check etc. Assuming its loud and you get only okay service, dont blame the chefs- the food is worth it and the ambience is dressy casual hipster atmosphere that has no expectations of you. Very easy to eat at for almost any occasion

I always love coming here but the service is always pretty bad. The staff is nice but it seems like they are always hella understaffed on busy nights. That and it always takes a ridiculous amount of time for the sushi to come out. But the food is delicious and I always have a good time.

It was just ok. They sat us near the door so we were frozen the entire meal. Potstickers were delicious but my bowl was mediocre...the tempura shrimp got super soggy in the sauce resulting in unappetizing shrimp. My husband said his sushi was rather bland. Kind of a bummer meal.

Came for Valentine's Day. Made an early reservation, plenty of space. Service was alright, not particularly great. There were tons of Postmates, Grubhub, Ubereats drivers coming in and out, and sometimes the front of the house staff had to pay attention to them instead of seated customers.

Food is always very good, and they have tons of vegan, veg, and gluten free options. Cocktails are great, but a little pricey. The miso broth vegetable bowl dish we got wasn't particularly flavorful, but as always the sushi is top notch.

Needed a place in Baltimore that was vegan & meat eater friendly. Their menu is huge, everything is clearly labeled. It was raining out so we got $1 PBRs.

The food is amazing but the service is so hit or miss. I've been here several times with large parties to just myself and my husband. This past weekend we had a reservation but were sat outside. It took 10 minutes to even see our waiter. By time he came, he asked if we wanted any alcoholic beverages and my friend said "good question" and our waiter turned and walked away!! Never mind the fact the rest of us knew what we wanted and I had a question. It was another 15 mins before we saw him again. Then my husband ordered a coke and our other friends boh came out 10 mins before his coke did. It was one of the only times I've tipped less than 10% and I wanted to give all of our tip to the host as he was great about coming around to top off waters and ask how our food was.

Sticky Rice is a great, casual place with quite the menu. I was impressed by the vegetarian and vegan options they offer- the Vegan Delight Miso Bowl was more than enough for the price. This was my second time at the restaurant and I will definitely be back for more.

Great food. Excellent variety and not your run-of-the-mill menu of flat breads and hummus. Sticky rice has a creative, unique menu. They have something for everyone (vegan/vegetarian/meat eaters, etc.) Staff were very accommodating to our group. (We did not all arrive at the same time and many eateries won't seat you until your entire party has arrived. We appreciated the flexibility and casualness of S.R. staff.)

Sushi was delicious, as were the tots we got as an appetizer. Note for future reference - the tots are a generous portion, so you may need to adjust your dinner order accordingly!
