Nice trendy little restaurant. The monkfish liver was ecellent, but everything else was just so so, and very expensive. We had the Kama, and it was tasteless and dry - definitely not worth $19. Two warmed over oysters for $7.50 . For these prices you...More

Kushi had great Japanese food! I really enjoyed my two rolls of California and shrimp tempura. Others in my party had other rolls and soup dishes.

Kushi looked close to where I was staying in DC and we wanted seafood/sushi so we settled on Kushi. Frankly, it is not the typical sushi restaurant I am used to and we have in the Southwest. This is more of a restaurant than a...More
