Everything about Aloha Sushi is just right. The quiet dining room is dressed simply, service is friendly and prompt, and the food is pleasantly affordable.
With more than 100 items to choose from, the cold and hot bars offer a wide variety of dishes from Italian to Chinese to American, suiting vegetarians and meatlovers alike. Wide selection of hot and cold sandwiches from our deli menu, featuring Boar's Head products.
"Outstanding Sushi, Japanese, Thai and Asian Cafe in Columbia area. Fine dinning room offer cold, warm, hot sake and beer, wine, liquor. The daily chef special running thr the dinning room in addition of happy hour buy one get one free liquor drink offer. I would say it's a nice plcae to try out."
With its kimono-clad servers, warm-cloth service, and soothing decor, this friendly and competent Japanese restaurant almost overcomes the ambient restrictions of its storefront location.
"Nestled in the heart of Mt. Washington’s business district Chiyo offers a wide array of delicious sushi combinations, 100 rolls to choose. From tempura to teriyaki, our lunch and dinner entrees cater to those who enjoy traditional Japanese cuisine."
"A Chinese restaurant with the taste of Chinese and Asian food. Around lunch time they have a buffet with good Chinese food and for dinner time the buffet is closed and the dine-in is nice. The seafood dish is not like most Chinese restaurant--the shrimp is bigger then most."
Inner Harbor location of local chain Edo Sushi. Classic and inventive sushi, Japanese entrées and appetizers with modern, American twists.
Timonium location of the local sushi chain. Classic and inventive sushi, Japanese entrées and appetizers. BYOB.
Edo Sushi is an example of local restaurant makes good: Take a clean, well-lighted sushi bar, add consistently high-quality fish and Japanese entrées and smooth service, and then repeat. Each incarnation of Edo does sushi very well, with emphasis on fresh fresh fish. Maki (rolls) are inventive and vary between locations; we love our beloved silky rock 'n' roll and the double-spicy crabmeat maki. Be sure to supplement any sushi selection with appetizers like the baby octopus salad, spinach sesame, or shumai soup. BYOB.
Warm atmosphere, friendly service, and fresh sushi.
Joss is just the kind of mod, hip sushi bar Baltimore has been lacking. Fish is fresher than fresh, and the selection goes beyond spicy tuna or California roll. If the wasabi shumai are any indication, cooked food here is no afterthought.
Tori Yang's quiet, often overlooked storefront Federal Hill sushi bar has been around for a while, doing nothing more spectacular than creating fresh standards and colorfully pretty sushi combinations. Regulars sit at the bar and devote attention to the maki specials. Put it on your list for lunchtime raw-fish cravings, or for Sunday evenings when you don't feel like dressing up. The liquor license is a major plus.
Kyodai isn't the best sushi in town. Hell, it isn't even the best sushi on its street--that distinction goes to the delectable Sushi Hana. But Kyodai offers instant gratification. Diners choose from luscious pieces of maki, seaweed salad, and other Japanese delicacies as they glide by on a conveyor belt around the sushi bar. It's an excellent place to go when you're in one of those I'll-know-what-I-want-to-eat-when-I-see-it moods. And the parade of food means you'll never be bored if you stop in for a solo bite to eat. Plates are color-coded by price ranging from $2.25 to $5.50, which can be a good deal, or a nightmare if you have zero willpower when it comes to raw fish.
Matsuri stands out as much for its broad array of Japanese cooked dishes as its sushi. Witness the robata appetizers, flavorful skewers strung with beef, seafood, or vegetables and then grilled. Vegetarians will find Matsuri friendly, indeed; half the robata are vegetarian, and other dishes like agedashi tofu make for a satisfying meat-free meal. Of course, the sushi is very fine too, especially if you pick something from Matsuri's impressive selection of sakes to go with it. True sushi fanatics might want to try one of Matsuri's periodic sushi-making seminars, hands-on yummy fun.
