Maneki Neko Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Falls Church is home to this old-timer that attracts devout sushi eaters, so expect mealtimes to be crowded. The reason is obvious: the restaurant turns out very diverse sushi and sashimi and other offerings, including such oddities as dried stingray, salmon jaw teriyaki and baby octopus. Choose from noodles with and without broth, such as tom yum seafood ramen, and other main courses like assorted tempura and teriyaki plates and a lunch and dinnertime bento box full of unusual tidbits. Ask about the Japanese beverages available, too.
