One of the best place to get a food I'm a chef myself and amazed about this restaurant food
Sooo good. Not saying anything bad about the previous owners, but every since they switch to the new management, the sushi has been great. It was good before, don't get me wrong, but whatever the new folks have done with the rice, the fish and other ingredients is working!
Come here for the lunch special - simple salad, steamed rice with cabbage, dumplings and delicious sushi. And it is CHEAP.
Came here around 6 pm and the owners were very nice and still allowed us to purchase food with the lunch special price ($5.99). California rolls tasted very fresh - they even doubled our order, let us substitute portions of it and gave us free miso soup as we were eating. The owners/people working there were very nice. I'd even say that the woman reminded me of a nice grandmother that always wants to feed you.
Close to my office.
They have yummy udon bowls;
the sushi looks good too.
I am awed by the reviewer who stated that Jack's Fresh has better food.
I come here semi-regularly and grab either a Tofu-don or a bowl of miso soup and seaweed salad. Both are very tasty. I've gotten their sushi now and then, too (including today, which was a special), and it's consistently good. Not the best sushi around, but for a quick fix/healthy meal, it's great.
Their Udon soup is also very good. Both the Udon and their whatever-"don" bowls as well as their bento boxes are a LOT of food.
Come hungry. There may be a wait, as they tend to have lines at lunch, but for something healthy, it's worth it.
Why not 5 stars? Because there was imitation crab and bok choi in it but that's somewhat typical, at least the bok choi part, for a korean place.
Okay, I added a 5th star...
Their udon is BANGIN!!! I had the seafood udon and the flavor is excellent. It took a little while but it was worth the wait. Plenty of people watching at lunch time.
It was prett much in and out, food and go, and it was hot as all get out when I got back to the office. Must have been dead hot when they poured it.
It was a little pricey--$8.95, but it was well worth the value. PLENTY of shrimp in it, plenty of imitation crab, there was a mussel in it, few small bay scallops, and some tempura shavings but it was chock full of flava--no filler carrots and stuff like they do at some restaurants.
These folks know what they are doing.
Amazing food and service! Wendy speaks Korean, owns the place and always makes people comfortable with a friendly smile. The service is fast and affordable. Their Korean dishes are off the hook. I've made it a habit to come at least once a week. Their sushi is delicious as well. I bought the Wendy Roll and I apologize for not taking a picture but it screamed, "EAT ME NOW WOMAN!" It was an offer I couldn't refuse! I devoured it and cried because I could taste the love that was put into making it.
Next, If you want some GREAT kimichi then stop by here. Her mother makes it and it's not to spicy but it has GREAT taste. As most Koreans and some people know, good Kimichi is hard to find. I have really wanted to start buying jars of kimichi from her...
Anyway, they seem to get really busy around lunch time. Their lunch special or lunch deal starts from 11 am - 3pm so if you don't want to be there when it gets crowded then I suggest going around 2 pm - 3pm. Either way, the service is fast. They have free green tea for you to drink while you wait for their food. Plenty of seating room for the small place.
If you don't work close to this location then I suggest asking for a plastic bag to carry everything in. If you try to carry all the containers then you will most likely end up having things break and losing out on some delicious food. (Comes from experience.)
Otherwise, I'm sure I will update my review again. I CAN'T"T STOP EATING HERE!
I've been on an udon kick lately, and Suki Asia fits the bill for a quick grab and go place before my evening alumni board mtg! I haven't tried their sushi or bimbimbap, so this is an udon only review.
Look how yummy the udon is! yelp.com/biz_photos/jzLK
Their seafood udon took a while to come out (20 minutes+ I believe) but it was worth it. What is lacks in authenticity, it made up for in flavor! The broth was super flavorful and only needed a little Japanese 7 chili spice (shimichi togarashi)! It also had shrimp, imitation crab, a beautiful green shelled mussel, bok choy, and tofu. All complete with udon in broth... I was a happy camper on a chilly Monday night.
Plus, the people behind the counter are really nice and you get free iced green tea while you wait. You can tell that they remember their regulars are - maybe if I come here more often my service will get expedited!
Location: The entrance is actually on M st, not on Rhode Island.
Great place to get reasonably priced sushi. Nothing fancy, but for what it is, it's really good.
Great lunch spot with reasonable prices. One order of the spicy tuna roll ($4.50) comes with salad and edamame and is enough to fill me up. The employees are super nice and usually throw in something extra with my order. The sushi is of average quality but definitely does the trick when I have a craving.
4/5 cuz the seating area can barely fit 10 ppl. Besides that the food is amazing and their lunch specials are very reasonable.
Great place to go if you want craving sushi (they are not skimpy on the raw fish too :)!). Great if your around the neighbor and are in a hurry
healthy, delicious, very affordable (lunch specials are around $6), miso with every meal, free ice/hot green tea, world's nicest staff and the place seems super clean (most dishes are prepared right in front of you, and you can sort of see into the kitchen too).
I've worked around here for a few years and this is by far my favorite place for a quick-healthy-cheap lunch.
I love this place. One of the cheaper options in Dupont, but so much better than most places! I usually go for the lunch special: original bibimbap with miso soup for $5.99! Plus free iced tea and I'm good to go. The people are also super nice and the service is pretty fast.
I can't wait til their kitchen is done remodeling so I can get udon too!
Best place for lunch in DC! I always get the tofu bibimbab lunch special, which comes with free miso soup and hot or iced tea for $5.99. How can you beat that? AND they have great and fast service. A+
I love this place! I eat here almost every day that I don't bring my lunch to work. It's better than almost every Sushi place in the D.C. Metro area, and it's very affordable. They do the "standard" rolls very well and have a variety of creative rolls as well. I can't get enough of the Cherry Blossom Roll - unagi, avacado and cream cheese. Yum. The staff is friendly and personalable and knew my name not long after I started comng in here.
Suki Asia is exaclty what downtown DC mostly lacks: a restaurant with really good food, really good prices and a casual atmosphere. I just got a bibimbap and miso soup for $5.99. That is a really good deal for fresh and tasty food. My friend got sushi, and hers was delicious and very reasonably priced.
Never going to Nooshi again. Over priced and no where near as good as Suki.
I look forward to going back as much as possible.
Nice couple who run the place...the bibimbap with bulgogi was tasty and a good deal. I like that they used a good mix of very fresh vegetables and their red pepper sauce is very flavorful.
I'm not even done eating my bibimbap lunch special, but I had to log into yelp to write a quick review.
This place is so legit. The owners were super nice and greeted me the second I walked inside (such a nice change of pace from typical DC service).
Three lunch specials for $5.99.
You have the option of ordering miso soup or soda with your special; although I initially wanted to try the beef-don, I opted for the bibimbap and soup to go. There isn't too much seating in the actual place, so I wouldn't recommend eating there during the lunch rush.
My order was ready in five minutes, and I happily walked back to my office in anticipation. Generous portions! Although there wasn't that much beef, the vegetables included were all very fresh; it was a mix of lettuce, carrots, seaweed, bean sprouts, egg, and beef over rice! The spicy pepper sauce was good too! Also the miso soup was great too-- lots of tiny chunks of tofu (it's all in the details).
Dig this place, 100% recommended. Food is great, lunch special prices are great, sushi is good (americanized rice, but I guess that's to be expected). Only thing is, I wish they salted the edamame. The place is A LOT better with the new owners. They definitely fixed up the old recipes that weren't all that great. The kitchen is down now, well for a while now, but it's still got tasty udon.
I eat here all the time because it is close to where I work and quick. Their prices are extremely reasonable and the staff could not be nicer. The food is great and comes in decent sized portions. The $5.99 lunch specials include either soup or a drink as well! Definitely recommend
This place is one of my go to spots for a quick, cheap, and tasty lunch. Their rolls come with edamame and salad and are very delicious. I particuarly like the cruncy spicy tuna and salmon rolls. My favorite thing on the menu is the bibimbap. All the ingredients are tasty and it comes with an soup or soda and it's only $5.99! I seriously think it is the best deal in town. It's a huge serving and well worth it.
The five star is for the price and food combined. As everyone says the 5.99 Bibimbap lunch special that includes a Miso soup or soda is a fantastic deal for Dupont Circle. They were very friendly and fast.
For those that don't know what Bibimbap is, it's a simple Korean dish consisting of rice, vegetables, egg, beef and some hot sauce (Gochujang). It's filling and delicious and isn't a million calories like many americanized chinese food dishes. The hot sauce is served on the side so you can add to taste.
There was a reasonable amount of seating. If you get there earlier you can probably find a place to sit, otherwise bet on take-out.
I got the $6 bibimbap lunch, which came with a good amount of ingredients.
as stated by others, the plate wasn't sizzling (something you yearn for after you try it), but since it's lunch and so cheap, i'm cool with that.
the lunch also comes with miso soup, and they served free iced green tea.
amazing value. i would give it 5 stars for value (and speed, which is a crucial metric for dupont lunchers), but i typically reserve my 5 stars on yelp for good-tasting food that blows my mind.
This place is a great find, and has quickly become my new favorite lunch spot. The have a special for $5.99 every day, with either beef/chicken/tofu, rice, veggies, edamame, salad, and miso soup. I always get the spicy chicken don, even if it's not on special, and I still walk out for less than $10.
The chicken is really good and flavorful, the edamame and veggies aren't anything super special, but I like that they get added in so I feel like I'm being semi-healthy. Nothing here is over the top, "write home about" amazing, but everything is delicious and pretty fresh. For the value, portion, and overall quality/flavor, it's easily the best in this area.
Had the beef don today. Lots of tasty beef with onions, and comes with a side of edamame+lettuces and soda! For $5.99 you can have a filing and healthy lunch! (Free hot/ice tea too) I usually tip them $1 even if I take away, it's such a honest business.
I love to eat here when I'm staying at The Beacon hotel. It's an great place to grab a quick bite to eat without paying a ton of money and ruining your diet. They offer inexpensive sushi with a free small salad, edamame, and green tea.
Why have I not found this place sooner?! Since my arrival in DC I've been on a desperate hunt to find some decent Asian food and low-and-behold it was literally right next to me! D'OH.
The location of Suki Asia is completely unassuming and I hardly expected this place to churn out the quality of food + affordable prices that it did but I am happy to admit I was wrong. I came at a random time, around 5ish so the place was completely deserted. At first I thought this was a bad sign till I opened up my order of bulgogi bibimbap when I got back to my apartment. Inside was a beautifully composed dish -- fresh veggies, tender meat, perfectly cooked rice, & other yummy toppings that are normally found in bibimbap. And for a dish that's usually served in a hot pot, this was beyond what I expected! Yelpers, if you are reading this and you are a fan of bibimbap like me, please try Suki Asia. You will thank me later! :)
*Next on the menu: sushi! *Fingers crossed* that it is as good as my first meal here!
Delicious, affordable, quick, and friendly. What more could I ask. Try the spicy chicken Bimibap, when they say spicy they mean it. Love it, all of the vegetables in the dish were incredibly fresh. Looking forward to going back and trying more. Rolls looked great too.
Definitely one of my top take-out office lunch picks in the area. All this place wants to do is serve you a tasty, asian lunch quickly, and at an affordable price. Suki Asia is not striving to be trendy or charming or even innovative, it is just trying to be excellent at what it does, and it succeeds.
The bibimbap special at 5.95 everyday is hearty, with plenty of vegetables (though much of this is admittedly lettuce), and comes with your choice of a cup of miso soup or a can of soda. The bulgogi on top is flavorful, as are the spinach and bean sprouts. The miso soup is uneventful but comforting. The service is efficient and friendly, and you can enjoy a cup of hot or iced green tea for free while you wait for your food. The bento boxes and sushi combos also look appealing (sushi rolled fresh on the premises), but I haven't tried them yet, because it's so hard to turn down the amazing and healthy bibimbap deal. Do yourself a favor and check this place out the next time you're vainly trying to think of a sandwich alternative for lunch-- this place is like the Adam Express of the downtown area!
Last summer when I was in DC I could not find good, affordable Asian food around for the life of me. I came upon this place and while kinda hard to find, it was a pleasant surprise. The sushi is pretty decent (not spectacular), the miso soup is good, and the bibimbap & japanese side dishes that they give you as well as the kimchi are delicious. And there is the free green iced tea also. Now that I am living here semi-permanently, I will definitely be back soon!
My wife and I were in VA (Mount Vernon area) to visit relatives. Since Washington DC was very close by, my wife would also care of some non-pressing personal business at an embassy there. We found parking at the wonderful (not) two-hour-limit parking meters and then waited patiently at the embassy . After turning in her (pre-completed) forms, she was told to come back some three hours later to pick up her requested items. That was fine and dandy, but we were hungry, so after feeding the meter yet again (and hoping we wouldn't run out of change by the end of the day) we took out our phones and shouted for YELP. Whenever we are in a strange place and are looking for somewhere to eat (or just want to try something new or specific), YELP is a Godsend. We don't just look at the Star rating as a guide, but also the latest reviews to see what's recommended or not (and why or why not). Anyway, once we saw that the place was within easy walking distance and offered some items we enjoyed, we proceeded to mosey over to Suki Asia (I can't help but call it "mosey" whenever walking with my wife, she is over a foot shorter than me, and usually where's shoes that are not made for fast walking... so I've got to move s l o w l y :) Of course I love her nonetheless. Okay, this is a restaurant review and I apologize for the one-sided banter. So we arrive and realize it is smack in the middle of lunch hour and the line is out the door (about 15 people waiting and mostly all will be single orders as most seem to be on lunch from work and they are with with friends/co-workers). It was hot outside in the sun, so it was a relief to make it in the door and air conditioning after ten minutes. The place seats about twenty & the tables were full, but it was an eat-then-go lunch crowd that was seated, so my wife was able to find a table quickly while I ordered. We had decided on the "regular" Bibimbap as we are familiar with that dish and seemed a good choice for this establishment. We had the choice of soup or drink with the meal, we decided on miso soup as they had self-serve green tea from a clean cool looking large glass dispenser (you can also help yourself to the tea while waiting in line... a nice touch). So we waited patiently at the table for our order. About 75% of the people in line were ordering take out, so they shuffled around the crowded waiting counter. The whole place was packed and once we were seated, we would not be getting up again to shuffle through the crowd to get tea refills. So I spent two separate years of my military career on unaccompanied tours in Korea, and ventured off base for about half of my meals. So I am familiar with bibimbap, my wife also makes it at home (although she is not Korean, we gather the proper ingredients from recipes found on line). So when I saw a large amount of ? lettuce ? included as one of the vegetables, I was very skeptical. That along with the thin, almost-orange colored Gochujang (basically hot pepper paste) that accompanied it. I am used to a much thicker and darker variety. **But, much to my surprise, the taste was great. The thin gochujang had good flavor and was easier to mix together with all with the rice, vegetables, beef, and egg that was included in the dish. It was large portion served in a large bowl (which also made mixing easy). I have a healthy appetite and was full by the end of this meal. My wife actually finished hers, which was surprising, so she enjoyed the meal as well. The place was busy but it was clean and bright. Apparently, the prices have gone up very recently (as we overheard one of the customers in line claiming). However, the closest places to us (in Massachusetts) that serve bibimbap charge anywhere from $5 to $10 more for this dish (although more traditional.. no lettuce, authentic gochujang). This is an everyday common healthy meal or snack item in Korea served in smaller portions and you usually won't see it mid-level restaurants or above, more in food markets and alleyway mom and pop (one table) eateries. It is probably comfort food and a treat for many Koreans in the U.S., and also for me as it brings back memories of nice old Korean ladies getting a kick out of an American eating and enjoying their native food (this dish and many more more exciting items.... can you say Octopus still alive and moving (served on a stick). Thanks for a very good meal Suki Asia at a very good price. I can't say that we'll be back but if we are ever in the area again we surely will be. Note to the female customer with the Australian accent (maybe fake accent) who asked if we didn't mind if you sat next to us with your girlfriend: If you are sitting at the same table with people who were nice enough to let you sit there, please don't be loud and talk about such personal things as if you were in a private conversation. It's rude and inconsiderate. Nobody wants to hear what an "Aaaswhoole" Jeff is and the reasons why. Thanks.
One of the issues of being a half-vegetarian/half-omnivore-who-loves-sushi household is finding a sushi joint that also has interesting (or even any) vegetarian maki. Suki Asia does, which means this place goes on the list. It's close to my office, so sometimes it's a meet-each-other-after-work kind of place, where we can both gorge ourselves on anything we might want. It's a nice little unassuming spot, not trying to be anything other than kinda homey, low-key, and tasty. Also, cheap.
food good, very casual, great for take out. well-priced, nice ambiance.
I get lunch at Suki Asia at least once a week- it's one of my favorite spots! There is not much seating, so it's best to plan on ordering to go or getting there early to nab a seat. There is free green-tea while you wait and the staff is especially friendly! The sushi chef is amazing and takes great care in his creations (order the dragon roll!).
HOW COME I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS PLACE!? It is right below the building I work in. I came here on my last day of my internship because one of my co-interns would not stop raving about this place! I got the bibimbap and miso soup! The miso soup was delicious and had little pieces of tofu in it!
Now for the bibimbap, it had your typical meat, kimchi, various vegetables, and fried egg on top. All the vegetables tasted very fresh and the meat was cooked well! I feel like you can't go wrong with bibimbap - Although, this is a small location and at times I felt cramped because I didn't know where to stand.
I did a take-out instead and ate at work, but it seemed like a very cozy and homey place. Be aware, lunch time is crazy Monday through Friday because of all the nearby work people coming in! Overall, I liked the ambiance, fast service, and reasonable price! If you are in the area, check out this place! I will be back - I loved it!
My 5-stars is based on the one dish I get every time - Salmon Combo. My friends who are less monotonous than I have always enjoyed their meals. The fish is always incredibly sweet and refreshing. Always satisfying.
The atmosphere is nothing to speak of by I enjoy the 80s music - sushi and Flock of Seagulls, mmmm. The wait can be long but they move as fast as they can. Hand made food takes time.
With DC so lacking in Asian food options, I was pretty happy to find this place again. The lunch bibimbap special is a perfect amount of food, with enough beef and veggies to balance out the rice. Whisk in some gochujang and you have one solid lunch. And it comes with either a soda or a miso soup.
The sushi represents the weaker side of Suki Asia (side question: why does DC blend Asian cuisines all the time?). The California roll I got was passable, but it was lumpy and I definitely make better ones at home. It does come with a few wisps of salad and some edamame though.
Not much seating inside, so during the lunch crunch, be prepared to eat in the cold outside.
affordable prices and great sushi. sushi tastes really clean and fresh. only complaint is the wait time but is understandable since it is a small establishment. my friend and i enjoy coming here for lunch quite frequently.
Limited, fast-sushi menu but the sushi is well made and the staff is very friendly. Take out or eat in, this is a relaxed and tasty lunch spot. The free iced green tea is a great touch.
A solid lunch place with a good bimbimap and sushi. There can be long lines so go on odd hours for face service. Sushi takes a while to made during the lunch rush.
After a really bad sushi experience near home, my roommate recommended I meet her for lunch in DC for good sushi. Although I balked at having to take the metro into DC on a hot summer day, I did not regret her invitation.
Food: As we stood in line to order, we saw a cooler with free iced green tea which hit the spot on such a hot, sunny DC day. I ordered the Alaska roll and my roommate ordered Toshi roll. Both came with delicious miso soup which tasted denser than others I've had elsewhere. We were both very happy with our rolls. The fish was fresh and the flavors sublime. The menu also featured don buri and bento boxes, as well as bibimbap.
One bit of constructive feedback: provide more menus for patrons. There is one laminated menu at the cashier which does not provide sufficient time to peruse the options and make an informed decision.
Ambiance: Very busy at lunch time with less than two dozen two-person seating. A few of those can be joined to make a couple of four-person seating arrangement. Very basic dcor with some Japanese paintings of fish are hung on one wall that has a long stain running along it.
Service: The cashier did not want to allow us to order our lunch to eat in when she saw that there was no available seating. This is most unusual for an American eatery but we went with the flow and hunted down a table then indicated it to her and she permitted us to order our meal to eat in the restaurant.
Downside is that they are not open weekends.
Transportation: Orange/blue to Farragut West or red line to Farragut North.
Moves quickly even during the lunch rush, and tons of delicious, fresh sushi for cheap! the salmon combo was more than enough for just $13.
it's definitely somewhere to take your lunch out from rather than eat in because it's tiny and gets busy quickly
will be returning :)
This place was definitely a gem and I feel so lucky to have found it. I moved to DC as part of a study abroad(within the US, not really abroad...) and internship program with the University of California and we actually had our facilities just a block around the corner from Suki Asia and I must say I went there quite a bit, probably at least twice a week. I always ordered the Bimbimbap or the Sushi Sashimi combo, sometimes both...
I totally forgot to write a review for this place when I was there, so this is long overdue. Being from California and spoiled by all the Asian cuisine around me and my dad's amazing Chinese cooking, it was pretty hard getting used to not having that readily available. Suki satisfied my cravings as I love sushi and sashimi. The quality of their ingredients and fish are great and the prices are very affordable. The owners are very friendly and you can see the chef prepare the food right in front of you. After going their so much, I started addressing them as aunt and uncle haha. They fed me so well and no matter what I ordered they always gave me something extra. I am very grateful to Suki because without them I probably would have starved haha. It's been almost a year since I've been there and I cant wait to go back and visit again!! All the other low ball reviews dont really do this place justice.
We stumbled upon this place after leaving the National Geographic Museum while looking for somewhere to grab a quick bite before heading back to the airport. After seeing mostly just sandwich shops around this area (not from the area so could be mistaken) this place looked perfect for what we wanted. We both had combos that came with a variety of sushi, sashimi, miso soup, Japanese sides, and mine came with some kind of Korean rice dish with veggies and beef. (I had no idea what it was when I ordered it but that is how you try out new things!) Both of our plates came out with a beautiful presentation. When you first walk in help yourself to free iced green tea while you wait for your food. The lady taking our orders was friendly enough. The place is pretty small so I can see lunch time being pretty crazy if you are trying to eat in. We shared our 4 seater table (only one open) with another lady when she came in after us so be prepared to get cozy with your neighbor. All in all though, the food was really great and the price was totally reasonable.
I've been going here for years and have never been disappointed. The best part is the variety; you can go by size or dish. Suki Asia serves some huge portions, but you can go for a single roll if you don't want much.
Their eel bowl used to be my favorite. Now that I'm a vegetarian, I still go for the oshinki rolls and the tofu bowl.
Suki Asia is one of the best sushi places in DC!
I go here once a week for lunch at least. The lunch special is more than enough food.
The sushi is great but a little pricey.
I really like their miso soup as well.
I also usually get their either before 12 or after 1 because the wait can be awhile for your order during the lunch rush.
Suki Asia has a cheap rice bowl lunch special for $5.99 which comes with miso. The wait can be kind of long (up to 15-20 mins) especially during the lunch rush but just make sure you factor that time in. It's hard to get a table for more than 2 people and even then you have to hover around and stare at people until they finish their food and leave. I love coming here for their tasty and cheap rice bowls.
Important though: DO NOT ORDER THE SUSHI. I've tried it twice - it's on par with grocery store sushi quality but it's much more expensive. The fish is not fresh at all, the rice is hard and no amount of soy sauce and wasabi can mask how terrible it is. Pay just a few dollars more and go up the street to get the chirashi lunch special at Sushi Taro. It's worth it.
So glad my coworkers put me on to this place! Although I'm not a fish fan, they have other options for us meat lovers. I got the special of the day which was bibimbap and it came with the miso soup. I usually don't love miso but this is the first miso I've liked! Perfect since I had a cold, warmed my through right up! I was a little disappointed in portion size of the bibimbap, there was plenty of rice and lettuce, carrots, etc but not enough meat itself. Especially since it tasted so good I wanted more :) My coworkers eel sushi took FOREVER to make, definitely call ahead to expect a wait.
We ordered/shared a combination deluxe plate that had a variety of sushi. They were all tasty, we both enjoyed each roll, and ordered the vegetable if on soup. It was all more than enough.
Such a cute little place with amazing customer service and fresh fish. They are quick, too. I ordered to go and had my food ready in less than 10 minutes. Free iced green tea doesn't disappoint!
I've been coming here for a while- I was introduced by a coworker and have since introduced and recommended Suki Asia to a bunch of other coworkers. My go-to is the Bibimbap lunch special- it's a great price (especially compared to others in the area) and comes with soup or a soda. It's a good amount of food for lunch, but recently I've noticed the portions of meat served with the Bibimbap are much smaller and less flavorful than they used to be- disappointing. Still holding out hope that they go back to the portions and quality that they used to have. I really like like this place and don't want to give it up!
This place has great lunch specials that they've actually expanded over the last year. The bulgolgi is solid for the price the bento boxes are massive amounts of food and worth the splurge. There are better places if you want fancy Asian food, but this is one of my favorite solid lunch places. Fast too.
A real hidden gem. As an ex-Californian, I think most sushi in DC is terrible. This place is solid.
Solid lunch spot. Pretty good Asian food, great for DC standards. I always liked the service here. Can get pretty busy/crowded around lunch time which makes it hard to find seating. Overall, good experience.
Suki Asia successfully satisfied my bibimbap craving. I'm spoiled since I've been to Korea, so while Suki's doesn't measure up to the real thing, it was good enough to fulfill my desire.
I was a bit bummed that everything including the meat was pre-prepared, but since I got there right at noon it probably hadn't been sitting around long. That also meant I only had to wait about 30 seconds for my food to be ready. The beef was pretty flavorful, though some pieces were a little chewy.
It was a little more than I wanted to spend ($11 including tax - I guess the menu I found online was old), but the portion was fairly large, and they were more generous with the bulgogi than I was expecting (see photo). It also came with free miso soup (which didn't have any solids in it - it was just the broth) and they have free tea (both hot and iced) at the front of the counter, so all told it was probably a reasonable price.
This is my favorite lunch spot in DC. They have great rice bowls with plenty of food (protein, rice, vegetables, edamame, and miso soup) and great daily deals. I really enjoy their tofu and spicy chicken specials. The owners are always very friendly and offer speedy service. Would highly recommend for quick and tasty asian food.
This place has it all!! From sushi combos that won't break your budget, rice combos, to hot soups!!! They provide free cold or hot tea with all meals!
This place always seems packed during the lunch rush, but they are organized and great at getting through things in a swift manner. Always so polite, Wendy says hello and goodbye, thank you and youre welcome over and over again to stress their kindness and gratefulness.
Truly a landmark/staple in my weeks lunch routine!
I do the Korean bow box lunch special or the spicy salmon roll combo!
Perfect for weekday lunch pickup. Two rolls for $10? Can't beat it. Their spicy tuna and avocado rolls are my fave.
Total gem. I'm writing this review as a sort of thank-you to this place for being so wonderful. Ingenious sushi rolls with superior ingredients and preparation. Fresh, tasty, and inventive. The delicate attention to detail distinguishes this place from the rest. Oh and most importantly, Suki Asia has the best Udon soup that I've EVER had. (I've been ordering Udon soups since I learned how to use chopsticks.) And now I've been going here twice a week, because a girl needs her Udon. ;-)
Best place for lunch!!!
Bibimbob is my #1 choice and noodles are also good for light lunch.
I try to not eat out much at work, but after catching a cold, I wanted a nice bowl of Pho. Cue the most convenient Asian spot just a couple blocks from my office! I loved the pho - a very generous portion and you can add hoisin and hot sauce. They also make sushi that looks amazing that I want to come back for. It was not busy at all and a welcome respite from the heat. It would be a great place for a quiet lunch or a work lunch with some friends. Awesome find.
I spent two years living in South Korea and loving the food. This charming place has outstanding bulgogi! The space is intimate and a fun spot to gather with friends or a sweetie. The customer service is good and the staff quite accommodating since we changed our mind a few times...just so much good stuff to pick from. My personal favorite dish is the bibimpap and bulgogi with miso soup. It has great flavor and you get so much good for the price.
This place is DIVINE. I go almost every day. First of all, the owners are SUPER friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Secondly, the taste...have you ever had sushi that just literally melts in your mouth? Here, you can get those. They have sushi rolls, sushi bowls, even bibimbap, Japanese curry, udon, unagi, and so much more. They even told me that they are adding healthy fruit smoothies on the menu for the summer, yay! The menu selection is so huge, I am not sure if I can try it all out in weeks or even months! Anyway, this place is worth the trip even if you are kind of far from the neighborhood. I didn't know DC made sushi like this, but they thankfully do. I daresay it is the best Sushi I had in DC for a long while, and I would know because I am obsessed with Sushi, and food in general. All I can say is, TRY IT, you will not be sorry!
They have good vegan/vegetarian options. I love their miso soup. I definitely recommend.
I have been looking for a sushi place for months by my work didn't know this place existed. Ordered Box A (Bento), I was impressed on how much sides they gave. The sushi is freshly made and tastes good, I will defo visit again.
A solid choice for lunch especially with the lunc. Special. Nothing beats the value. It is a huge portion with watercress, radish, carrots, eggs, tofu or beef or chicken depending on the day, bean sprouts and lettuce. You can never go wrong.
On Thursdays, there are special curry items available. I love their curry, either with rice or with udon noodles.
Sushi and Beto box and other items such as pho might be pricier and you may find it did not live up to the price you pay. My strategy is always sticking with the lunch special or things you have tested.
Very nice and welcoming owner. I have been coming to his place since 2010. Almost never disappoints.
This place is so delicious and so affordable! I always get the tofu don lunch special. My only complaint is that it's not open on weekends, or I would grab it for lunch more often.
Not the best sushi I've ever had, but they were quick and friendly. There is limited seating but the place is adorably decorated. Great for just a quick bite for lunch.
Blazing fast, lunch special is a steal generous servings all at a great price
This cute little place is perfect for grab-and-go healthy lunches.
Great value. Busy spot for locals. Fast friendly service.
A no frills, lunch only Japanese and Korean restaurant. The sushi is fresh and delicious, and the Korean specials offer a great value for a budget lunch. The space is small, so sometimes during the lunch rush you need to get your food to go.
