Visiting a friend in the Sterling area and we decided to come here for sushi. I love sushi and have to say, compared to numerous other places in the area, this was "just okay." I ordered the Salmon sushi/sashimi platter and friend had the Yellowtail...More

Well, this is not my first review of Aoba, the first time I ate here was back in March of 2016 while travelling in the area. I was sold after the first roll and knew that Aoba would become a favorite place while visiting Sterling....More
