Best Dishes Spicy toro and avocado roll; soft-shell tempura roll; Continental roll.

There are deals aplenty at both the Arlington and Bethesda locales. Monday nights, sushi goes for $1 to $1.50 apiece and the “buffet” in Bethesda—a conveyor belt offering a range of items—runs between $12.50 and $17.95. Beyond these bargains are well-cut sushi and sashimi and à la carte rolls such as spicy toro with avocado, soft-shell-crab tempura, and the Continental, a marriage of tuna, avocado, and crab.
