Iron Chef House
Name of the restaurant implies a much higher degree of quality. Sushi was food court quality as best! Menus were printed on blotchy and folded paper on what seemed like a malfunctioning home printer. Salad dressing was more runny than typical. Spring roll contents seemed mushy like puréed baby food. White fish sashimi was not the typical white fish. It was certainly white but a different consistency and texture, almost gelatinous. Overall, the sushi didn’t taste that fresh and pieces of the Eel roll were falling apart because they weren’t wrapped tightly enough
Loud atmosphere - no sound deadening in the ceiling and everyone is crammed in.
Had Gyoza which was very good, however the Edamame was dirty and not very warm and not salted at all.
Had the sushi plate for 2 which had 16 pieces of chefs choice sushi however it all was sashimi. The next item on the menu, the love boat, calls out chefs choice sashimi and sushi so we assumed the plate for 2 would just be sushi. We wanted to say something however we were starving and our waited was nowhere to be found.
The fish itself was a bit too warm for my liking and a little pungent.
interesting and unique sushi roll flavors! combinations you may not expect but tastes very yummy! thanks for the special fried bananas as a birthday treat!
Great sushi and great service!
The sushi was okay but not the best cuts or freshness. Service felt rushed
The hostess was less than inviting and the food was just ok.
Did my birthday here. Although small, it was a cute place with really good sushi and desserts. Everyone was super nice.
Everything was delicious and the prices were great
Great food. Great service
Delicious and innovative sushi at a very reasonable price. Artistically presented food that could easily be found in downtown DC, but a wonderful find for us suburbanites.
Sashimi and sushi were fresh and delicious. The tempura was very good as well. One of the better places in the area for sashimi and sushi.
-very good manager who was very helpful in helping us chose what we wanted.
-clean; good service.
-food was fresh and well prepared.
The seafood soup was the star of the show. The seaweed salad was also very good. Entrees were tasty. Sushi was just average. Nice place but small. Service was good. Will go back again, but not for the sushi.
Absolutely nothing short of amazing. Food was awesome, great saki, great service, reasonable prices...for some of the best sushi I've eaten (And I lived in Japan for 5 years). I was having such a good time, I lost track of the time and they stayed open late just for us. Once i realized i felt horrible and quickly apologized and was told "not to worry, they were happy that we enjoyed our time we spent with them." True customer satisfaction and it's about to become one of my top 3 spots.
Good spot if in need of a sushi fix while shopping, but I wouldn't necessarily make it a destination. We were the last of the night, but they didn't rush us. Tempura and shumai were solid, the Halo roll was very tasty...the rest met expectations, but would have stood out more if we had added sauces. Presentation was beautiful.
We love Iron Chef House
The staff are incredible and the food is always outstanding!
It's a must go if you are at Mosiac!
We expected the food to be better in both flavor and preparation. Even though it was a little less expensive, the quality didn't come close to matching a couple other sushi restaurants in the area. The salmon skin roll was particularly disappointing. Half of the sashimi seemed great but the other half seemed to limp along. The sashimi and ginger prep needs to be better. The miso soup was good.
This is our new favorite sushi bar. The sushi chefs are such artists and always willing to explain the finer points of their work. The sushi is very fresh and so many variations to choose from. I also enjoy the hot tea that is served. Vivian is very friendly and always accommodating to her customers. We will return often!
This was our first visit and my wife and I both enjoyed our dinner. We found the wait staff attentive and appreciative. The menu was full of choices. We chose their shrimp teriyaki and salmon teriyaki and really liked them. We like a quiet place to eat and we were happy the other folks in the restaurant apparently felt the same. Great first time experience. Definitely in our rotation of places we will frequent.
As sushi goes, it is unequaled in my experience. I went back 2 days later with a friend who was a sushi chef for 2 years and he agreed it is almost uniquely good in this area. Even the soup and salad were far better than we expect and there is a lot more on the menu than just the sushi.
For spicy rolls, they grind the fish and mix it with spices giving a softer texture. Some people may not take to that but in terms of taste, quality, and treatment, it is outstanding.
This is some of the best sushi I've had in this area. It was also some of the most amazing presentations. I was pleasantly surprised since I tried a few other places at Mosaic that didn't knock your socks off. This one did. The servers are attentive but at times I found myself trying to track them down to refill water or to order something but it wasn't terribly frustrating- they arrived quickly . The food, however does not. So if you're catching a movie or have somewhere to be, give yourself plenty of time. There is obviously a chef in the kitchen who likes to take their time and get it right. Can't complain about that.
