The Authentic Japanese Dining Experience at Sushi Taro

Sushi Taro is pleased to introduce "Kaiseki," a traditional dining experience that we proudly serve here in Washington D.C. just as it is served in Japan.

Kaiseki conbines the elegance of Japan's ancient courtly cuisine with the simplicity of Buddhist temple fare. The goal of Kaiseki is to highlight the natural taste of ingredients at the peak of freshness and flavor.

During a Kaiseki meal, instead of ordering off a menu, diners let the chef entertain them with a series of surprises. This allows the chef to use his imagination and to feature the ingredients that are most delicious and in season on any given day.

At Sushi Taro we encourage you to try this style of dining. We offer three types of Kaiseki meal. In the "Kaiseki Tasting, "the chef puts the emphasis on cooked dishes. In the "Sushi Kaiseki Tasting, "the chef serves morsels of seafood and seasoned rice along with other dishes. And in the "Suppon Kaiseki Tasting," the chef serves this unique ingredient of soft shell snapping turtle with ancient Japanese cooking technique to bring-out the genuine Japanese flavor that you have never tasted before. We are also offering other seasonal ingredient Kaiseki Tasting in its seasons.

Enjoy the simple form of genuine Japanese style dishes.

I knew I was in for an excellent sushi lunch when I learned that Sushi Taro is where Japanese diplomats based in DC go for a taste of home. The sushi lunch combo with miso soup was excellent and the most authentic sushi I've had in DC. The restaurant has a serene, modern atmosphere. Even though the restaurant was crowded, it remained quiet enough for conversation over a working lunch. The waitress was attentive without being pushy or overbearing. While the food is pricy (what good sushi isn't?), if you want to treat yourself to fresh, authentic sushi, this is the place to go. And, if you're lucky, maybe you'll rub shoulders with some Japanese diplomats and officials.
