The Sushiko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

Wonderful sashimi and cooked dishes as well. My favorite sashimi is the kama toro aburi! Yum! Unusually for a Japanese restaurant, the desserts are great as well -- the shiro miso ice cream is to die for. Like salted caramel, only better.
Thank you for such a great review, we are pleased to know you enjoyed your experience at Sushiko.
Ever since it shut down and then re-opened for dining, the food is not the same. Our service was great but not the top quality sushi as we used to get at sushiko. Very sad!
Hello Kate, I am sorry to hear you were not pleased with the food. My name is Grace I am the manager here. If you would like to give me an email, I would like to know more about how we can improve. Thank you, Grace firstname.lastname@example.org
Food was terrible... flavorless. The pork cutlet was the best thing we had. A5 wagyu nigiri used to be a favorite... This visit was a big let down... Ive been here many times before and the quality was superb. What happened!?!? :/ I was underwhelmed with my birthday dinner.

They mislead you into thinking you reserved an outdoor table but then not available. Very disappointing given Covid concerns.

Best Japanese food in town. Consistently the best service and great food!
Thank you Debbie for the great review!
Our server was lovely and the service was perfect, not rushed but attentive. The food was of course delicious!
As always, Sushiko excelled at serving absolutely delicious Japanese cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere with great, attentive service. It’s my favorite DC area restaurant!
Their handling of the Coronavirus fears is OUTSTANDING!
We witnessed them sanitize tables with gloves after each guest left. They did their best to space patrons and made us feel incredibly safe. Until this global nightmare is over, I am thankful for Sushiko’s entire team taking it seriously.
We have been faithfully enjoying Sushiko for the last 15 years. having been to the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, and some of the higher end sushi spots in the DC area, Sushiko remains our absolute favorite sushi spot.
The fish is ALWAYS fresh. What makes Chefs Piter and Handry the best of all is their commitment to sourcing the finest fish no matter where. The specials are always awesome. Is the best uni coming from Tokyo this month? They’ll source it. The specials menu will always list where the fish is from, which is a cool feature.
We continue to appreciate their hospitality and the wonderful job the managers and servers (like Coco) do to make us feel at home.
We normally have sashimi and other seafood dishes, but this time, we opted for the chicken dumplings, the pork buns, and the pork ribs. Everything was outstanding, as always.
Food was excellent. But the place is very difficult to find. Even the Google map was not useful.
Lunch Bento Boxes are a great value, with soup, and variety of sushi, sashimi. Fish is always so very fresh. We always enjoy and have extra to take home. Service was excellent, attentive and quick. Always enjoy and will return.
Not sure if the fact that we came latter than usual is the reason but the service was rushed and not as attentive as usual. Still and all, one of the best sushi restaurants around.
Outstanding sushi, and really really appreciated the reasonable noise level in the dining area. We eat a lot of sushi, and Sushiko is clearly at the top of our list for both quality and lovely experience.
I came here for valentines day and the food was amazing and the staff was very polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend Sushiko.
Broke my rule and went out for dinner on V Day. Mistake. Some of the sushi must not have been properly refrigerated or sat too long before being served. I'll spare the details.
Wonderful cooked dishes in addition to sashimi! We had the ankimo (off menu), pork bunn, chicken dumplings, and egg drop soup. Totally delicious.
I’ve been to sushiko many times - and have always been of the opinion that their sushi is a cut above. It’s typically fresh, well prepared and presented in a wonderful and beautiful way. My experience last night was notably different. The sushi was ok - but only ok. It was just like the average sushi I get in so many other places. Disappointed. Service and ambiance are very nice.
Had the Bento box which is enough food to tide one over til suppertime...great price/value.
A true neighborhood gem. Inventive and delicious food. Service is amazing
Our server, Diana, was a gem. And the sushi was amazing. We tried the "tuna 6 ways," and I have never tasted fish so fresh and tender. It absolutely melted in our mouths. The sushi specials--hamachi from Spain and salmon from New Zealand--were excellent. The chicken gyoza (dumplings) were excellent as well. All in all, a spectacular experience!
Dinner with friends
Great service. Very responsive to allergens.
Every time we come back to Sushiko we have an amazing meal. Not only is the food delicious but the attention to detail in how the food is prepared is wonderful. And while everyone who works there is kind, attentive and provides wonderful service, my family asks to sit in Jason’s section if possible because he gets to know his patrons. He remembers us from visit to visit and at one point he brought our drink orders to the table right after we sat down (remembering from the previous visits). He adds to the enjoyment of our dining experience. We will happily return and recommend this restaurant highly
Okonomi 30$ was only 6 pieces.
If you go there to fill you stomach with sushi, don't go.
The sushi was wonderful, as expected. We were, however, surprised at how limited their sushi selection has become.
The sushi was not as good as it has been. Excellent service still.
Great food. Definitely try the hot rock and salmon ceviche!
Service was ok. Seemed hurried and when we asked for a dish we ordered to be cancelled (right in a minute after ordering) we were declined.
Not the best, other sushi places have better food and service in the area.
A great lunch with friends, with great food and unbelievable service. The best restaurant is the one where you only have to ask for the check, and Sushiko delivered!
Great food. Excellent and knowledgeable service.
Our server, Amy, was super attentive and informative. She gave us great recommendations for her favorite dishes and favorite sake and none of it disappointed. Delicious, fresh food. Tasty cocktails. Great atmosphere.
One of the best for restaurant week. everyone's happy to see you and the food is wonderful.
Amy was our server and she was super kind and attentive. The food was fresh and delish and the ambience was great.
The food there is okay, was not really surprised with restaurant week menu, won't recommend it to any friend...
have gone to the restaurant many times...always pleasant.
People don’t come to sushi place to eat tasteless shrimp as part of the chef choice. Please replace it with another moderate priced fish like flounder.
Meal was pretty good, and great value for restaurant week menu. The area we were seated did not have a great ambiance and the service was not great in that room. Very disappointed with the tuna as it was lackluster. The rest of the food was excellent.
Even though they are a $$$ restaurant in Chevy Chase, I cannot say RW deal is good. What I had was basically sushi sashimi combo with soup, which can be offered $18 in regular menu. So why bother?
Wonderful cooked dishes -- we didn't even have sashimi this time. Desserts are outstanding as well.
