Worth trying! - Edit

Great vegan/ vegetarian sushi options! They offer vegan cream cheese as well as vegan miso soup that tastes delicious. The bucket of tots comes with a spicy sauce that can be made vegan. They also have a few different sushi burritos that are pretty good. My only gripe is that it can get pretty expensive, and I wish that they offered an "all you can eat" option at least once a week.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Relaxing atmosphere

Cons: Can get expensive

decent sushi - Edit

This place was decent. Good service, good sushi, fresh veggies and a sushi bar full of girls making sushi which is hard to come by. My only issue was the lack of Japanese people or any people of color working, it is a sushi bar after all. It was definitely two $$, but they have buckets of tots!

This place is noisy and smells like Urine! - Edit

My son and husband were going to take me here for Mothers Day last year, my son said the place smelled of Urine and was so noisy!

amazing veggie sushi - Edit

Took the family here and everyone left very full and happy. Got the Hot Hippie- very hot! Garden Balls were the best and the south roll was yummy! The carnivore was also happy. The staff is friendly and helpful and happy to offer vegan options.

Pros: food is great, staff is friendly

Cons: kinda dark

Great sushi place- good vegan and veggie options - Edit

Great atmosphere, local character, good vibe. Food is always really, really good. Not the cleanest restaurant in town though..

Must Try Local Spot - Edit

One of my must visits when in Richmond. Menu is clearly marked on vegan or vegan option items. Try more than one roll! My favorites are the hot hippie and silence of the yams. Also, the vegan sticky rice dessert is delish.
Local tip: if it's raining, pbr is only $1

LOTS of vegan sushi - Edit

Their veggie sushi is out of this world - they have creative specials (a lot of times the specials are veg!) as well as permanent menu items. You will want to come back a lot to try all of their veg options, because they have more than sushi. A lot more.

NOTE: The main Sticky Rice Restaurant (on the right side of the street - it's a one-way street) can get SO busy. They also have a To-Go place right across the street on the left side.

***Important*** Tuesday nights are 1/2 off veggie sushi. Oh Yeh.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Casual Atmosphere

Cons: Can be really busy, Can be really noisy (especially if busy), Somewhat expensive

Totally Amazing - You Have to Try this Place! - Edit

I've never had tempura dishes like the ones I've had here, and on a completely unrelated note the tater tots are amazing. I love coming here on rainy days to take advantage of the $1 PBRs. You need to come here and try everything - you won't regret it!!

Pros: variety and flavor, specials, deliciousness

Cons: i'm a wuss, so a bit loud/windy for me

Gotta try it if in Richmond - Edit

This place is awesome for a "twist" on traditional sushi. It's a pan-Asian eatery with plenty of awesome choices. If you love the idea of sushi, go here to satiate that veg need for sushi! There are more than half-a-dozen vegan options, and they are ALL good. The soy sauce isn't low-sodium though, and their wasabi is kind of weak.... but the options are awesome. I love the Hot Hippy and there's a sweet potato tempura roll! Also, spicy avocado, cucumber rolls, Garden Balls (tempura-fried rice-stuffed inari pockets - HUGE portions!)... not to mention shiitake sushi! Everything is delish, and I love it!

The best part is ordering a bucket of tots with vegan mayo-dipping sauce. Spicy and yummy! Good appetizer!

Also, there are lots of yummy bowls of noodles - you pick the noodles or rice, and then there's the toppings. The Dirty Vegan is good and so is the Veggie Medley. Wakame Salad rocks, and so does the VEGAN miso soup!! Tofu bites too... lettuce wraps... mock chicken... Lots of options, filling, cheap and goooooood! Go go go!

The lines are a wait on the weekends and some evening, but it's so good, it's worth it. They have a to-go location right across the street for no fuss access!!
