    The food was barely edible in the restaurant. I took the sushi home to try again the next day and it was so bad I threw it up. Would not recommend buying anything but tots here. I won’t be back except maybe for drinks.

    I used to frequent this establishment and would always enjoy my meal. I just ordered takeout. I got the snap crackle pop roll and it was basically just cucumber with a minuscule amount of meat. I have had better sushi at Kroger or Publix and way cheaper.

    My family and I patronized this place and it was utterly delicious. As a family, we ordered chili calamari, Gyoza, sticky wings, and sticky balls as an appetizer. The sticky wings were amazing. I ordered the Mongolian beef bowl and that was delicious as well. My husband wanted the Korean hotdog, but they were out. Other than that. We enjoyed our meal.

    Just had sushi delivered. They basically delivered me cucumber wrapped in seaweed. I get better sushi at a grocery store. They need to do better, I want them to succeed, but they need to do a lot better.

    Mongolian beef bowl… no flavor at all. It came in a large take-out container that included the rice inside, so it was a rather small portion for the price.
    Spicy ribs… no spice, very little flavor.
    Chicken gyoza… actually, not bad.
    Atmosphere is like an old dive bar. Not my thing.

    hot & sour soup was trash and tiny AF portion, way overpriced. felt like they took miso and dropped a few things in there. idk what folks are ordering here and but if the soup isn’t even right I’m not willing to waste money trying anything else out. Lucky Whale isn’t fantastic, but soup is decent at least, ended up going there after.

    Great meal and service was excellent! Everything was great except the wobbly tables- just a minor issue. Got a bucket of tots, ribs, lettuce wraps and tofu bites for aps, drinks, tuna bites for dinner, and the fabulous rolls. Tons of vegan options! Hostess was beautiful and friendly- even when I broke an empty on the floor by accident!

    Meh. College bar feel. Don’t know about the rice, but the front door was very sticky. I came for sushi after looking at reviews, but the vibes and my cleanliness senses were saying don’t get the sushi. The dumpling sauce wasn’t very good. The server recommended fried gyoza, but they were dry. My rice bowl was kind of like a PF Changs bag from the frozen food aisle, only more expensive. Meh. Disappointing.

    Yum yum roll is out of this world. I can’t say enough good things about Sticky Rice. It’s not only a Richmond staple, it just plain lives up to the hype. I’ve probably eaten here over 100 times and I’ve never had a bad experience – except maybe that one karaoke night when my friend danced on the bar and we politely were forced to leave.

    Service: friendly servers with quality recommendations. Very polite and prompt.

    Food: gyoza was 3/5. Taphouse brewery had better dumplings. The sticky balls were very very good. Snap, crackle, pop roll was decent. Definitely recommend their tempura/fries rolls over the traditional ones.

    Honestly this place was great …. if I were white lol. My friend and I came to karaoke Tuesday night. We waited patiently for our drink. It was so packed so I understood the bartenders were overwhelmed. I started noticing people who were just walking up were getting drinks so I started waving my hand. Finally 15 mins later a guy with a beard behind the bar say HEY YOU COULDA BEEN GOT A DRINK 10 mins ago…. He was so rude to us . My friend actually cried . It ruined out girls night smh . Wont be going there ever again. The restaurant across the street was very welcoming. Check then out instead !

    I’m just gonna be honest, people don’t really come to Sticky Rice for the “amazing food” lmao. It’s got more of a dive bar feel, the drinks are pretty affordable, the service has always been great. The sushi is pretty subpar and the cooked food is pretty bland. The seating can be a little cramped, but nothing too bad. It’s more of a spot the college kids and younger local crowds hang out at.

    If I could give a 0 I a would. Hailey the bartender was showering her racism hard this Juneteenth. She was very dismissive. I was talking to someone and she interrupted our conversation talking about what? We got into and the manager did nothing. Felt like I was in 1920.

    I usually do not leave bad reviews unless it’s warranted.
    The servers were very friendly and the atmosphere was fitting.
    My only complaint was the food. The sushi here is horrible. The only thing I enjoyed was the tater tots; not even the grilled cheese.
    We tried the tuna appetizer. The presentation was on point but once we took a bite, it was the end of that. Incredibly salty. Maybe the chef got the ingredients mixed up and put extra salt? No idea.
    The sushi roll size did not justify the price we paid.
    The grilled cheese was just a piece of bread folded over with some cheese stuff in the center.
    The tater tots were good though 😊

    Maybe we’ll try this place again for their bowls but I would rule out the sushi here and try somewhere else.

    There were 6 employees sitting at a table hanging out and one poor lady stressing out making sure that all the orders were put in. She seemed to be the only one that noticed that I had been waiting 40 minutes for my pick up order (there was one other customer in the restaurant). They kept blowing her off until they realized the kitchen messed up. Based on how they were treating her and the fact that I couldn’t wait an hour for pick up, I asked just to get my money back instead of having the kitchen start to cook my order. They refused and told me they would just make the meal. The food was disappointing. I hope that lady finds an employer that appreciates her more than where she is working.

When I contacted them to address the issue they proceeded to nonchalantly say, “We can’t give you a refund & we can’t remake your order at the time. BUT we can pass it on to the general manager and he’ll say the same thing.”…… take this for what it is.

    Realized when we got home that they gave us the wrong rolls (printed receipt vs online receipt shows they subbed negihami with an eel roll) so would be extremely cautious ordering if you have allergies. Rolls were ok otherwise.

    Food was not good, got 2 dishes first then had to wait 20 minutes to get the 3rd dish then another 10 to get the 4th dish. Someone came and took the soy sauce off of our table without asking if we needed it and I asked for soy sauce after and it took a while to get the soy sauce after nicely asking twice for it. I do not recommend

    Sometimes hard to get a table, but when you do it’s WORTH it. My boyfriend and I normally love a quieter setting but we’ll give for Sticky Rice! We love the energy here and love the food even more. They’re pretty serious about IDs, which is great, but even though I’m 21 I’ve gotten some odd looks here and there. That’s the only negative! Go-to place for rolls and a bev and that’s coming from a New Yorker and a basic basic suburban girl. Thank you for the good vibes, always!

    I’ve tried five different bowls and they are all very good. The Spicy Thai with Udon Noodles and Chicken or Fried Tofu is 10/10. The Tater Tots with dipping sauce is also exceptional. I also enjoy the consistency of the ‘Quickness’ delivery service they offer.

    Bouncer that was on duty December 14th was very rude and talked back to ladies very disrespectfully. The online page should indicate that they stop serving food at a certain time, it was very disappointing to find out the kitchen was closed at 10 pm after the website states that their open until 2 am.

    My friends and I frequent Sticky rice for karaoke on Tuesdays nights we usually enjoy rounds of shots and drinking all night. I came in on Dec 22 with Friends the bouncer was very aggressive. He is usually unfriendly but tonight he was extremely confrontational. Throughout the night he would be screaming, cursing,and shoving people around. If you questioned why he was pushing he would threaten you by putting his hands in your face and telling you to leave the bar. I personally called the police after an exchange with him because after him shoving me he threatened to call the police on me because I yelled back at him. While talking to the police 3 other people came up because the same bouncer had punched a man in the face busting his lip and grabbed a woman by the hair. Sticky rice is a very small bar that’s usually packed on karaoke night. It is usually a place I would recommend to people after tonight I will be spending my money elsewhere until the bouncer is let go. The bouncers job is to protect the people at the bar not threaten them and use his authority to harass paying customers super disappointed.

    This is a local hot spot. They are pretty expensive however. Creative twists on sushi rolls, but I enjoy classic sushi, so if you are looking for standard rolls, I’d recommend looking elsewhere. Amazing atmosphere, dim-lights, loud music, refreshing and artsy décor. They are open very late too, but kitchen closes at 10pm I believe.
    This place is most popular for their karaoke nights on Tuesdays and Fridays, which are the most fun, but it is 21+, and they check IDs at the door. Pretty tight security. This is one of my favorite spots in Richmond.

  92. KC 2022/09

    I love Sticky Rice! Let’s just start there! I ordered the veganzilla roll, which never disappoints. I love that there are delicious vegan options here. I also had some warm sake which was the perfect accompaniment with the sushi. The sushi and drinks came out in good timing. I always enjoy the ambience here. The wait staff is attentive and courteous. 5 stars all around, and I’ll be back soon!

    Sushi and Tots and Beer. Hard not to love this spot. It’s a Richmond classic, and is a little bit of a tight fit, but it’s great. Bathrooms are down stairs and out of the way which is nice.

  104. bruce hoang 2022/07

    Very typical fan bar/restaurant with funky vibes. Sticky floors and tables, crowded and small space, seems best for hanging with friends. Street parking only. We came early on a Wednesday evening around 6PM, and waited less than five minutes for a table. Most all of the tables fit a party of 4, if you have a party of 5 or more definitely call for reservations. Not recommended if you’re looking for a quiet comfy spot for date night. We came specifically to try the vegan sushi (vegan specials on Wednesday). I appreciate their effort to make unique vegan sushi, but I feel like they missed the mark on the ones we tried. I’d rather have simple sushi rolls with quality ingredients and expert preparation over what we had here. The overall theme I noticed was a lot of deep fried sushi ingredients and heavy on the sushi rice. The combination of fried ingredients and lots of rice made the dinner feel very heavy.

    I’m glad we finally tried this place but probably won’t be a regular…

Atmosphere was friendly, but very loud. Couldn’t hear others in our party talk due to the music. If you’re looking for a bar type place, with loud music, good drinks and okay food, then it’s the place for you.

    I will start by sating that the food was alright, not great but not bad either. Unfortunately that’s where the positive stops.

    Mid meal, about 45 minutes in, we are asked if we would like more sushis, my girldfriend answers that she would. After telling the waitress what she would want, we are informed by the same waitress that a big group is coming and that we would need to change seats.

    I’ve eaten in thousands of restaurants and I’ve never been asked to vacate a table before. I could understand if we had been sitting there for hours and just chilling but we were literally still eating. Let’s just say that we cancelled our last order and asked for the check.

    Turns out we spent 74.67$ with sushi and sake, sounds right. I give my credit card to the waitress to ring it through. She comes back with a bill of 108.78$ instead of the 74.67$. Its a good thing I always look at what i sign before signing it.

    As per the waitress, a colleague rang some food through our table by mistake. Not sure how she didn’t catch the 34$ difference.

    Let’s just say that we will never go there again…

    I was visiting Virginia and came here by myself and sat at the bar. I ordered the tempura fried veggies , South roll and the veganzilla. I must say I’ve never had pineapple tempura fries before so that was cool. The South roll was by far my favorite. Veganzilla was cool , but wasn’t really my thing. I loved that they had a whole vegetarian section. The bartender was friendly , im not sure of his name. He had a beard & piercing blue eyes; very confident. I’m sure he’s been there awhile. If I ever come to Richmond again , I will definitely be back!

    So tasty! Nice and crispy tempura and perfectly steamed (not mushy at all) broccoli in my general tso’s.

  132. insufficient sleep 2022/03

    Mongolian beef was bland and oily and the broccoli and veggies were overdone to the point of being mushy. Poke bowl is so small it isn’t worth the money. Sushi is underfilled and the rice is overdone and way too soft and mushy. Hot and sour soup was a small container with 2 small chunks of pork and broth, no tofu and no mushrooms at all. Absolutely disappointing. Regret not ordering from the Chinese takeout down the block. I make better food myself blackout drunk.

  142. Kate Nash 2022/02

    Absolutely delicious sushi! Inventive combinations of flavors and textures, clever names. Overly expensive for someone on a budget. But most seriously, the takeout containers can be neither recycled nor composted. #6 plastic, seriously!? Neither Richmond nor its surrounding counties recycles that. Especially in 2022, especially for such a wealthy company in the Fan District, this is completely inexcusable. I used to frequent Sticky Rice, but I won’t go back until their ethical standards rise at least to the level of the food they serve.

    I wanted to really like my takeout from Sticky Rice. But it was just ok and not above average. My Bhan Mi sandwich was odd with some version of pulled pork. It had few herbs and no Maggi sauce which I need. My order was supposed to have rice on the side but came with tater tots instead. This was bad since we got a large order of taters to share. I plan to try again to see if this was only a bad day for the restaurant.

    This was the first time I’ve eaten here. The atmosphere and service were great. However, the food was not as I expected. When our lettuce wrap was delivered, I found a bug on the inside. I informed the waitress, and I was not charged for that item. I don’t remember the name of my order, but it was a bit greasy. On the bright side, I was able to get to get the 1 dollar PBR. Overall, I had an OK experience, but I will not come back nor recommend.

    Tried this place out with my wife. After dining here, we feel like this place is probably best for young college students who don’t know any better.

    Both our drinks didn’t taste too good. I ordered the fig and pear Moscow mule (worst Moscow mule I’ve ever had). They did have a good amount of alcohol in them though.
    For appetizers we had the tots and wings. The tots tasted like McDonald’s hash browns, beware the bucket of tots is probably best shared by a group of 4 people. The wings were decent enough.

    Entrees: Wife ordered the Mongolian beef for dinner and it had ZERO seasoning. I just had the 1000 league sushi roll and it was very bland. I think I’ve had fresher sushi from grocery stores.

    I go here once a year for my son’s birthday. I can’t wait until he outgrows this phase. They’re cramming too many people in there. The server has to be a contortionist to deliver the food. That being said, we had a delightful server this visit – super sweet and checked on us often.

    Man, everything here was fantastic! From the drinks, appetizers, to the meals. We started off with the ribs which were great, and then ordered some sake to drink a long with it all. For my meal I went with one of their bowls and I cannot remember which one but they have a wide variety of ones to try, but you can’t go wrong! Highly recommend making a stop here.

    To make me feel somewhat better, I’m writing this review because I’ve never had such horrible experience in my life. I’ve worked customer service at a restaurant before so I completely understand why food takes long, but My boyfriend and I felt so uncomfortable and ignored being here. My boyfriend and I were celebrating by going out to lunch on the 27th of June. The hostess sat us by the windows as she took our order which was the Rocket Shrimp, Tokyo Burger, and my boyfriend got one of the sushi’s off the menu. Once we had ordered, it took about 25 minutes to get the appetizer out and then I started noticing guest who came after us started getting their whole entire order made.. The hostess had mentioned that the burger was taking a little while than expected.. unfortunately after waiting for another 35 minutes we decided to leave without eating anything, except for the appetizer that my boyfriend had to pay. We were getting so tired of watching everyone in this entire restaurant do nothing to help us and talk about my experience in front of us without acknowledging how we were feeling. Sadly, my boyfriend would like to take me here again and I’m really praying that the next experience will be a lot better. 🙁

    I’ve always enjoyed coming here. Staff is always friendly and all that jazz. Only complaints are the space- super cramped. Lord help you on Karaoke nights- well, when we had those. Also some questions about cleanliness, but nothing I can outright prove. Either way, I like the vibe- it’s increasingly younger in crowd, but overall accepting. Still one of only two bars I thought I would fight someone. I can’t explain it- I guess I like to live a little. Lol

    This is not good sushi, and for double the price of most mom n pop authentic sushi restaurants. Sushi was dry, mostly made up of hard rice with minimal filling, and none of the ingredients tasted fresh. Do yourself a favor and get your sushi from Akida just a few minutes away.

If you’re looking to have some fun then the events they host like karaoke night is a good way to let loose and have a good time.

    I came here for lunch on a Friday and ordered three things off the menu. One being the Yum Yum tempura roll which was very delicious and super filling. I wish I had gotten two because the rice dishes we ordered were not good at all. We ordered the Mock Chicken Szechuan and the General Tso’s Chicken bowls. The General Tso’s chicken tasted mainly like batter and not chicken. It came with broccoli that tasted like flavored water and the rice was not as great as you’d expect. Since the restaurant is called sticky rice they need to work on the quality of rice they’re serving. The two bowls didn’t have anything special to them that made you excited for the next bite. I enjoyed the art and decoration inside the restaurant. Also, the server was nice but not very attentive. I’d come back for the sushi but to-go.

    My husband and I went here to try it out and are big fans of sushi. The waiter was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. We were hesitant about the sushi when we sat down based on the fact of the menu being so broad from sandwiches to sushi and the place could have been more clean, lots of dust and old pieces of food in the bench corners. We ordered sushi anyways in hopes it would be great but unfortunately it missed the mark. It isn’t really authentic and several of the rolls we ordered had more rice than filling. The prices are higher than they should be for the quality of sushi. If you just like sushi occasionally you’d probably love it but if you know sushi well you’d probably be disappointed.

    The food.
    Awesome. Very fresh. Presentation great.

    Sidenote, having lived in Deutschland the last two years where I had no access to Generals Tso’s, it’s hard not to order it here every time.

    When Generals Tso’s is done well it is very good. It is done very well here.

    Kids meals.
    Burger and corn dogs are two of the offerings. Expensive by kids meals standards (about $9).

    Staff.
    We have been there three times and had a great experience the first two times.

    The first time it was my wife and I and are three kids aged 12, 10, and 8 during the busy dinner rush. My kids are well behaved so we were a pretty quiet table. I can’t recall the name of the server but she was attentive and professional.

    The second time we were there with another couple and ate super early like 1630. We had Gabby as our server and she was gregarious, fast, and attentive. By far one of the best staff members there and you’d be lucky to have her.

    The third time we dined here it was just myself and my three children and another couple and their two children. So three adults and five kids. When I went in to inquire about a table the staff member I spoke with responded with a facial expression that made it clear I was a pain in their butt. We had interacted with this staff member previously and though they have never been warm, they had never been off-putting previously.

    The bathrooms.
    Not great. But also not much Sticky Rice can do with the space this building provides. They are downstairs, cramped, and the two units share a communal sink outside which is located next door to one of the three kitchens at this restaurant. The bathrooms have a grungy feel to them so maybe HGTV them from an interior decorating perspective so they can be the best they can be with the limited space.

    I’ve always enjoyed sticky rice but who goes into a restaurant to order food and doesn’t get any food. As a former server I understand mistakes can be made but this “mistake” was whack and handled terribly. I came in last night and I first ordered miso soup and a drink with a server that had brunette hair with bright pink chunks. I got those. I then ordered another drink and a Philadelphia roll. Waited almost 40 mins. I asked my server where the roll was. She asked me if I still wanted it… like??? Nah suddenly the oxygen around me got me full. I told her yes. I wanted it. She came back and told me the roll wasn’t going to come out because the “ticket got lost”. I knew that was a lie because my drink didn’t come out either and that would be a separate ticket that happened to also get lost? When I asked if my drink was gonna come out her answer was “It can. I can put in the order for you” I was like… I don’t want a new order I’m wondering where the original order was. She fully forgot to put my orders in and didn’t offer anything to fix the situation until I told her I was still hungry and then offered me tater tots. Noo. I came for sushi :/ then I just decided to leave and asked for a check where she overcharged me for way too many drinks and I didn’t even get comped for the drink she completely forgot about. I came for a good time with friends, everyone else got what they ordered and I sat there with miso soup and a drink in my tummy and left with that. Really sucks.

    Tried Sticky Rice for the first time for dinner. Started out with the tofu lettuce wraps, which had no flavor at all. As for the sushi, ordered the spicy salmon, spicy tuna, negihama, pretty roll and the snap, crackle, pop monster roll. Overall I was unimpressed. Definitely skip the pretty roll as it was mostly avocado (and $10/6pcs). The Maki was cut into 6 pieces but should absolutely been cut into 8 as the pieces were too large.
    The rice was almost too soft and had a mushy consistency. The service was very good and the food came out pretty quickly but I don’t intend to return anytime soon.

    Terrible place for sushi. After seeing some reviews, I hesitantly ordered the spicy salmon. It was more (warm) rice than anything, and the fillings nonexistent. Definitely couldn’t taste any of it, and pricy for what you got. The one star is purely for the friendly staff member who called to let me know my order was ready and even offered to drop it off curbside.

  234. Evonne 2021/03

    The food was delicious but my group had an issue with the waitress that seated us. Its a small establishment so the seating is small and close. It was four of us in a group and we planned trying many of their dishes. When the waitress told us where to sit the table was very small and we already knew by looking at that when we ordered the table would be crowded. So we asked the waitress could we sit at the the booth with the larger table. She said it was only for groups of 4 or 5. We are a group of 4 but she said if a bigger group came in she would need it for them. So we sat at the small table. As we were eating a couple came in to eat and the waitress allowed them to sit at the booth for 4 or more people. So of course we were perplexed. She give us the excuse that there wasn’t anymore seating available which there was. Also in my dish someone dropped a dumpling in my Udon bowl. At first the waitress joked that its a little surprise and I laughed but when I bit into it, it was cold. So I’m only giving this place 3 stars because of Megan our waitress and the half cooked dumpling surprise in my udon bowl.

    Went there tonight and kinda regretted it. The dance floor is tiny and nobody was dancing anyway. Maybe it was the DJ, as in maybe the DJ went home to eat and left his dad to spin; don’t really want to speculate. But it was loud, and that’s good, even if the playlist was eclectic.
    They have food, too. I had a Mongolian beef bowl with udon (and a beer) while waiting for booties to start shaking. It tasted ok; beef was a little al dente to my taste, broccoli pieces were too big for my human mouth, but I didn’t mind because it was only $12. It was a lot of food, and to tell the truth, I didn’t feel much like dancing when I finished. But if I ever get back to Richmond, I will show up later to Stickie Ricky’s, skip the chow altogether and just focus on my moves. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go, but if you do go and you don’t want to dance, maybe bring your earplugs.

    After hearing good things about this restaurant I gave it a try, but unfortunately had a bad experience. The only reason my review is 2 stars is because their food was tasty, but not good enough to make up for the slow/lazy service.
    The service was extremely slow and they were not that busy at the time we went. The food took about 45mins to get to us, we were not asked for refills on our drinks, and we had to get up to ask for the check… maybe takeout would be better.

    Poppin. Lots of people dancing

    If you attend VCU or live near the area and haven’t gotten drinks (maybe too many) at Sticky Rice, are you even living?

    It’s a great example of a local fun, RVA bar and sushi place. Good menu cocktails, house sake, and beer selection. The specialty rolls are BIG. One roll normally does the trick. I can attest that the bowls are also great tasting, healthy, and well portioned. We spent $90 here on a bowl, 2 rolls, and 7 drinks (had to buy 5 shots for the birthday party behind us, that danced with my wife and made the night!) Plus 20% tip. Totally worth it.

    The Godzilla roll lives up to its name and is tasty!

    One of my favorite go-to’s… this time I ordered the Godzilla monster roll… enormously good.

    The food was really good, gave 3 stars after witnessing the hygiene of an employee after we had already received our food…..

  254. Lorenza Coley 2020/12

    This the worst restaurant and should be closed. I went in for lunch and only 3 couples were seated. We ordered a appetizer and 2 bowls the appetizer came out in a good time. The bowls came out 25 minutes later and it was burnt. I don’t know if the cook cannot smell or see but the food was burnt. The waitress brought it to the table as though she could not smell or see either. To wait as long as we did and to get burnt food was totally wrong.

  255. Erin Hill 2020/12

    Excellent, friendly service! We enjoyed everything we ordered. Managed to snag an evening special: $1 PBRs because it was raining! I had never tried hot sake before and the house one was tasty! I’ve been here before on a weekend, pre-covid when it was packed, poppin’, line down the street to get in, to enjoy the beverages and old school tunes– singing, dancing! What a good time/memory! I have also been here for dinner on weeknight when it wasn’t busy. Different vibes depending on the crowd! 😄 But the food and drinks are always good, no matter the crowd! Sticky Rice is an establishment all Richmonders and visitors must try at some point. 🙂🍙🍣

    Clean, open space between tables, waitress was quite nice an attentive, food was great and out in 15. If you’ve never done sushi try the bowls they have, they’re quite good.

  261. Jason Strong 2020/11

    Great food and employees

  262. Phillip Andrada 2020/11

    Taste good although it feels like they’re just putting ingredients together and calling it fusion. They said only dine-in customers can use the restroom but we came all the way out of town to try this place and only had time to order takeout and they wouldn’t let us use the bathroom.

  263. Damien 2020/11

    My tuna tempura was on point 👌!!! …

  264. A 2020/10

    Avoid karaoke nights if you intend on enjoying dinner. Super good sushi

  265. Savion B 2020/10

    Over priced you get less chicken (diner portion aka only choice) than a lunch special anywhere else, the general ok definitely not worth 11 dollars, the “sticky rice” is just a fancier word for white rice at 3 dollars, but they’re the only chinese place open in the area, so if you want chiniseish food your only choice, they force upon you currently to give a tip (pick up as in not referring to delivery) which i understand given the current time but if you’re charging 15 for average food and a fee for a small amount a food then Houston we have a problem 😂.

  266. Sean Blathers 2020/10

    During this time of post COVID-19, you need to make a reservation to dine in.

  267. Daniel Sop 2020/10

    Local stop, relax vibe and delicious bucket of tots ( This is the reason i come here ). The place turns into a hangout spot in the evening with music.

    Sushi dive. Always an adventure.

  269. B E 2020/09

    Ribs were chewy, sushi was cut like a 3 year old, I am so disappointed in this place, spent $70 and wish there was a return policy like target.

    One of the few places I have to eat at when in town even though I haven’t lived in Richmond for 10 years

  271. William Harriman 2020/09

    Great place for food, usually not a huge fan of it due to size of the place and how packed it gets, but that just means they’re doing something right staying so busy

  272. Lydia Shull 2020/09

    This place is gross. I know multiple people who have gotten food poisoning from here but I thought I’d try it. The rice dry and the food tastes like it’s from Aldi. Highly don’t recommend.

  273. Michelle Wong 2020/09

    I came here for takeout, and was served quickly. However, while looking at the menu I noticed they have a “Godzirra” Roll.

    It’s disappointing and corny that a sushi restaurant would make fun of the culture they’re profiting off of.

    I’d be down to try the place again if they changed the name.

  274. J W 2020/09

    The sad thing 10 years ago the food was good & the place was fun. The grungy feel of the place was part of the charm…now in the middle of a pandemic a good wipe down of the tables would be nice. Legit though the lack of sanitary tables would be an issue if the food was still good but if you have looked at a majority of the reviews over the past few months the food is no longer good. Some reviews compared it to gas station sushi & mentioned the blandness / sloppiness of the rolls. All are fair & accurate. At this point your better off with some grocery store sushi & frozen tots, because the best you can hope for now is bland rolls that fall apart if you look at them wrong. Get there early…they stop seating at 9pm sometimes sooner.

  275. Krystal Case 2020/09

    I love everything about sticky rice. The food, the drinks, the events and mostly the staff.

  276. The KalelFan 2020/09

    Just as horrid and salty as it was a decade ago. There was a bug on the food of the guest at the next table. There are better sushi places in RVA.

  277. Jose Maria Moyano 2020/09

    Very cool sushi bar, and very very tasti sushi pieces. Further, they have 1$ PBR if it is raining, and good happy hour.

  283. Kourtney Smithson 2020/08

    Sticky rice, you guys gotta step it up. I wanted to shop local and curve my Asian craving. But that was seriously some of the worst take out I’ve had in a while. And it was SO Expensive— which i would have been fine with if the food hadn’t been so bad….

  284. Psychology Bear 2020/08

    Pros: Great tasting food, large Portions, comfortable seating, perfect occupancy (low and fast during a lunch break and packed and fun during weekend nights), strong drinks, competitive prices

    Cons: Dirty windows and walls make me a little concerned about food safety, terrible parking during peak hours

  285. Shreya Gandhy 2020/08

    Delicious sushi and sake with excellent vegan and veg options for those who ask! They even have a vegan mayo to replace their special mayo with tots. I would definitely check out their sushi if you’re coming through. The service is fast and helpful too.

  286. Josh Naine 2020/08

    It was a really fun place. It was a bit of a throwback when they started playing 70’s songs. Very convenient and the food was wonderful. I had gotten the calamari and the chicken sesame bowl, both of which were wonderful.

    It seemed like a cool place. Wasn’t there long. It was a Thursday night. They still had a decent crowd. I would definitely check it out again.

  295. Rachel Brown 2020/07

    We ordered sushi that had rice that was hard and plainly inedible. My husband said his meal tasted like a Costco freezer meal. The tots were nothing but a reheated tater tot bag. There were two small bugs on my plate. Will not be here again.

  296. Krista Wylan 2020/07

    Man, I don’t know if I just got a weird batch or what. I haven’t had sticky in forever and LOVED their rolls and I was having a day so my husband drove across the river and picked up some veggie sushi and my god we ordered a lot. And it was bad. It didn’t taste fresh, the avocado was old, the tempura was very spongy like Inari pockets more than tempura which is kind of odd and then this one part is my fault: south rolls used to be with honey drizzled on top and now it’s like infused with maple syrup which is just not my jam. Maybe I just remembered the atmosphere more than the food but it was a bummer.

  300. Elena Hamza (shebreathes) 2020/07

    Was excited to try their food because of all the positive reviews.Absolutely not worth the price. So mediocre.
    General tsos had soggy breading, seems like it was frozen food, not fresh. I’ve had better at any run of the meal chinese restaurant. Flavorless and just all around meh for the rest of our meal. I heard people loved this place so I don’t know if it’s just the pandemic or a new cook but something is off.

  301. Ryan Bachand 2020/07

    Store bought sushi! That’s what it tasted like…seriously! Cold, hard rice wrapped around fishy tasting fish. SO disappointed. Wanted to like this place. Has almost a thousand reviews. 4 1/2 out of five stars. It’s real simple people. Not that complicated. Good sushi is 90% about the rice and 10% about the fish. That’s sushi 101! And yet everywhere we go in Richmond, we seem to strike out at this simple, yet pivotal concept. Oh and a little tip, if you’re serving two people, don’t let one of the person’s rolls sit on the counter for 11minutes before serving it with the other person’s.

  302. Devin Pardun 2020/07

    Mediocre at best.
    If you are young and don’t know what quality sushi should taste like than this is the place for you. Service was great. The music selection was on point. But honestly… unfortunately for for the money I spent on the bill the only thing that was ok was the bucket o tots. The sushi was not cold. The rolls were dry. And they couldn’t even cook the kids meals with out burning my sons burger. Very disappointing. Will not be back.

  303. Daniel Patterson 2020/06

    Not impressed with the food. Small space inside, the staff seemed iritated with having to deal with customers.

  304. A. Sumter (AnnDrea) 2020/06

    I was told my food would be ready in 10-15 min. I called 30 min later to check the status and was advised it was going to be another 10-15 min. I waited an hour and change for my meal. Don’t pay until you pick it up. I would have left but they had my money.

  305. Stef F 2020/06

    We had the veganzilla roll, the Goochland roll, and the Philly roll. The veganzilla roll was truly -zilla sized! It was filling, and the flavor was light, creamy, and mildly spicy. The goochland and philly rolls both have smoked salmon; the philly roll was expected perfection. The goochland roll was an unexpected flavor combo with smoked salmon and goat cheese; it was yummy. I would absolutely eat there again.

  306. Aimee Smith 2020/06

    Drove 2 hours and came straight here to place a to-go order, was told (as a paying customer), bathrooms were only for dine in customers. Understand the restrictions during covid but have not yet been to a place with this type of restriction. Food okay but with this experience not planning on returning.

  336. Amber G 2020/02

    The atmosphere in this restaurant is electricrifying! The music, decor, wallpaint, and bar all were entertainment for the senses. We went during the day where we saw many families, groups, couples and singles obviously on a lunch break so the crowd was very diverse. They boast karaoke nights, $1.00 PBRs when it’s raining, and a slew of other specials throughout the week so I can imagine the night crowd could be more rowdy. Our food was on point, wings perfect, miso soup was nice. My only suggestion would be hiring more wait staff – it would be 100% worth it as our waitress had over 8 hungry tables and was literally running around. The wait was around 45 minutes from order to plate on the table which if I only had an hour for lunch, would have been impossible. Make sure you have the time to visit! To go and try if you are in the Richmond area is a definite must.

  339. Danielle Daniels 2020/02

    The rolls I ordered were poorly made. They were falling apart, and were not cut all the way. The taste was very bland and lack luster. It seemed like something was missing. The customer service was terrible. When I entered the restaurant to pickup my order I was not greeted at all. There was plenty of employees and not very customers so it was very disappointing. I was told over the phone where my food would be seating, but I was a little confused about where to go because I again I was not Acknowledged. I will never go back here. I’d advice everyone to save you money it’s not worth it.

    Fun spot for sushi. Lots of options for vegan, etc. Kids shared a bucket of tots which they ate with their chopsticks. Much fun, good quality sushi. The Goochland roll with goat cheese was interesting. Our fav roll was the Snap, Crackle, Pop.

  348. Jonathan Williams 2019/12

    They stop seating at 9pm despite closing at 10pm “because of Coronavirus” which is odd on my last visit the bathroom didn’t even have soap & when I advised staff of this fact was treated as a nuisance. So the sudden interest in coronavirus is somewhat good news…if they’re serious about it.

    All in all this place is a shadow of its former self & probably should be avoided. Unless you’re into being disappointed then this is your place!

    Spent $60 on sub par sushi tonight. Against my better judgment, I bought local instead of Red Salt in the west end. It was ALL RICE and a small sliver of fish in the middle. I was utterly disappointed. Shame on you Sticky Rice.

  352. John Zehmer 2019/12

    Been coming here for 20 years, keeps getting better and better. PBR for $2, tots piled so high and sushi from some place left of our universe. Keep it up folks, you’re awesome.

  367. Amber 2019/11

    There are some crazy flavor combinations going on here. The poke bowls are pretty much perfect – proportion, flavor, creative. Officially everyone faces over the tots and yes they are good. But get this with a larger party. Less than 4 and it’s too much. Explore the menu, I can’t imagine someone not being pleased.

    One star off for the somewhat dingy interior, too loud music, and lack of parking.

  368. Deborah Tracy 2019/11

    This place never disappoints. We ordered 4-5 appetizers, sushi and several of the bowls. All were outstanding. Our waitress was a rockstar and took care of our table like a pro. This is the best of the Sticky Rice locations so def check them out!

    Sticky Rice was fantastic. It was a short wait on a very cold night and a neat small spot.

    We started out with the Vodka Limeade that was very refreshing and probably amazing before the vodka. We then ordered the trademark tater tots, veggie wraps, the Garden Balls (I think, I cant quite remember!) and Veganzilla Rolls.

    I would rate both rolls extremely highly and was pleasantly surprised at how great they tasted. I will definitely try this spot again but probably leave out the tater tots simply because it’s an incredibly large portion much too big for any two normal people to finish off.

    Creative sushi and they have the impossible burger!

    My boyfriend brought me here since he knew I loved sushi. I ordered the Godzirra roll and it was amazing! Plus the greatest thing was is my boyfriend was NOT eating no sushi so they had a sandwich and tater tots which definitely made him happy! So needless to say its going to be way easier to get him to bring me here. Thank you so much!!

    The food was different and delicious. Our server was great!

  383. Frankie Hudson (Punkybetch666) 2019/09

    DELICIOUS FOOD, ESPECIALLY THE STICKY BALLS. Only problem is that our waitress was very slow with bringing our drinks.

  384. Justin Archer 2019/09

    Such a cute establishment, with excellent deals. It’s a quirky Richmond staple that every local enjoys– during the day it’s a fun restaurant, at night it’s a party!

  385. Chris Thomas 2019/09

    The atmosphere for the nightlife was incredible. The crowd was lively in a good way and the bartenders were quick even while multitasking to keep the music going.

  386. Darian White 2019/09

    Sticky rice is good, don’t get me wrong but I feel like it gets a little lost in the midst of the restaurant scene in Richmond now. I used to go a lot a few years back and they had this incredible teriyaki burger with pineapple slices on it, but they took it off the menu (if I’m not mistaken the Tokyo burger replaced it). Their sushi is better than Carytown sushi because the menu is a more creative, but recently it’s just been an ok option amongst everything else along this strip of W Main.

  387. Elke 2019/09

    Delicious food! I love the sushi as well as all the noodle bowls. Although I’m not vegan, the ‘Dirty Vegan’ is my favorite. They know how to cook and flavor tofu. The atmosphere is upbeat and busy without being loud or overwhelming. This is becoming one of my favorite places to eat in Richmond.

  388. N-Bushie Chambers 2019/08

  394. Tierney Ruffin 2019/08

    Service was great. The bartender, Johnny, was very nice and friendly. I will definitely be returning to try the food also.

  395. Crystal RVA 2019/08

    The food is always good, the service is always hit or miss. But I’ve never had a bad meal, from salads, to sushi (vegan options too!), to various desserts, they dont disappoint!

    My favorite sushi place in Richmond. My girlfriend and I went to sushi heaven which is half off certain items from 5-6 on Friday. The sushi was amazing and the service was great. My girlfriend and I got salmon, cucumber, and avocado sushi rolls and they were all terrific. I’d recommend asking for eel sauce too

  398. Christopher Winkler 2019/08

    Vibrant atmosphere with tons of young people socializing, fast and friendly service, and pretty good Asian fusion cuisine. The restaurant is well decorated with interesting lighting and decorations, and it’s full of young people eating and drinking. There is a good atmosphere here. The service is excellent–fast, friendly, and attentive. The food is pretty good. A couple things were just okay, while others are pretty good. The menu is pretty varied, with a particularly large selection of vegan options. Come for the atmosphere and check out the interesting menu; you’re bound to find something.

  399. Derek Carter 2019/08

  402. Nikki Longo 2019/08

    Go to their vegan heaven sushi special nights. I’m a huge fan of the Shitake Happens and Veganzilla rolls. They also did a special roll for V72 which was amazing!

  403. Griffin Colorado 2019/08

    My friends and I were coming for dinner and a drink. We were told to order food or leave. Katie specifically explained how since we’re weren’t going to order dinner at the moment, we needed to leave to make room for others. We had literally just arrived. I honestly thought she was just kidding but she straight up was trying to kick us out because of our large group. At the end of the day, we didn’t get to order food because Katie removed us. Unbelievable service from a “manager”

    Vegan and Veggie sushi are just as good as regular sushi and always the bucket o tots!

  411. Celena Shaw 2019/07

    I loved this place, I plan to go back at some point but I will say it is a big small like a hole in the wall type id place. Unless you’re looking for it, you’ll happen to pass right by it especially if it’s at night

    So many incredible choices… Hard to beat the tofu bites though. We enjoyed the energy and upbeat atmosphere and super service too!

  419. Kenneth Sullivan 2019/07

  420. Krista Betteridge 2019/07

    Their sushi rolls are delicious! We always get the bucket of tots as well! Great atmosphere, great employees!

  421. Kristen Havlik 2019/07

    Went here on a Saturday night and it was jam packed, very loud from noise and house music. Put our names on the list and walked back to our car because there was nowhere to stand inside and it was 30° outside that night. Got a text about 15 mins later saying our table was ready. We ordered pretty quickly after we we’re seated and waited 45 mins to get our food. I got the teriyaki grilled chicken sandwich with tots and the tots with their special sauce was great. Sandwich was pretty meh. Couldn’t taste any teriyaki and the bun was very soggy so it became hard to pick up. My partner got the Mongolian beef bowl with noodles and there were barely any noodles, it was mostly broccoli, a few snap peas, a tiny bit of beef and a few noodles. It wasn’t what he was expecting. The menu had it under noodles, so you would think there would’ve been more noodles in the bowl… Not worth the value at all. Very disappointed in this place even though a close friend recommended it. Won’t be coming back again next time I’m in RVA.

  422. Momo 2019/07

    Alright sushi place. Stopped here after a tattoo session with a friend.

    The sushi was alright, my friend sushi was overly salted to the point even I couldn’t eat it. I rarely dislike food, even when it’s of low quality. This was a first for me.

    Service was decent, no complaints on that. The staff was kind and attentive.

  423. Sarah Kingsley 2019/07

  433. Jahmeh Cole' 2019/06

    Johnny Mac is one of the best bartenders in Richmond.

  438. Jesse L 2019/06

    It’s not the most traditional sushi in Richmond, but it’s not trying to be. They have decent rolls. They also have amazing sticky balls! If you don’t mind shoulder-to-shoulder people on a Saturday night and/or mobs of 21 year olds , then this place is for you!!

  439. Kylee Vaughn 2019/06

    Kyle was amazing she was very energetic and helpful about my first trip and picked up on the idea of me looking for a tofu based meal without having me clarify or needing to ask me. Very perceptive and knowledgeable with the menu and over all was the cherry on top of a wonderful lunch. Will return for more service and food like today! -kyle²

  440. Toni Gregory 2019/06

    Yum. Many great options, and happily surprised by catching some of their happy hour specials! Our server was friendly and did great job. We have eaten here a number of times and always have had a pleasant experience.

    Well I like Sticky Rice and ran in for a gift card. The person who helped was super nice and friendly, thanks! But the lemon handler at the bar cutting lemon wedges and picking them up with bare hands…. that made me uncomfortable.

  468. B Sessoms 2019/04

    Great customer service. I got vegetable dumplings and calamari. Both were great not greasy. Girlfriend likes to get a sweet tasting drink at the bar and ordered a “TWP” — it was good, she loved it.

  469. Monica Burlock 2019/04

    We got there at 6:40 on a Monday night, so it was still Happy Hour so we got discounted drinks and 1/2 price for the bucket o’tots. The Fantabulously Amazing roll was fantabulously amazing! We sat at the bar, and the bartender was very cool. It’s not my first time there, and I will definitely go again

    The potstickers were absolutely delicious and this restaurant definitely knows how to cook tater tots to perfection! My curry fried rice was tasty and filling. My husband’s burger was overcooked a bit.

    The food is good only thing keeping me from returning is the Richmond meal tax, otherwise this is a very nice restaurant.

    I love Sticky Rice. The food is so good. The environment is great. The wait staff are good. If you go, a bucket of tots is required. I don’t know why, but Sticky Rice has tater tots on the menu and they are the best tater tots on Earth. All the food is seriously good. I’m drooling just thinking about it.

    Not what I expected, but very good none the less. I’m familier with Stocky Rice in California, and thought it might be the same, no, it was different. My server Sam was great, she helped me pick a dish that was wonderful. Thank you Sam…

  494. Hannah Little Nakamura 2019/02

    Rudest customer service I’ve ever received. Instead of trying to fix a problem the manager got incredibly confrontational and snatched our menus, chairs, and cups away telling us they are more than happy for us to leave multiple times. Do smiles count when they threaten to kick you out for sitting at a seat and ordering food?

  495. Lauren Methena 2019/02

    I absolutely adore sticky rice. Creative cuisine. Really great sushi. Fantastic vegan options including vegan sushi. So it is great for a mixed crowd. My only complaint and the only reason I’m not giving it five stars is that the service is always hit-or-miss. More than once, I have been served a meal that is completely cold. And then they have had to warm it up in the back. Happened with the corn dogs my child ordered just the other night. However, that might be more the kitchen. The serving staff is always friendly. And other times the service is just fine. The food is worth it though. It’s a fun place to go!

    Walking in I was greeted by a friendly staff and a beautifully designed room! I also loved the classic rock and folk music which provided great ambience. I ordered the nigiri (salmon, tuna, and broiled eel) along with miso and fried calamari. I was very impressed with all of it! Very fresh flavors. The portions were larger than most sushi places I’ve been too so I was very happy with that! I highly recommend this place. Be aware that this place becomes a bar at night so if that’s not your thing show up a little earlier.

    Sushi looked great & tasted great. Ribs tasted good till the bite closer to the bone—the ribs were refrigerated-cold on the inside. Insides of the ribs were soft so I hope I only bit into a precooked cold meat, & not raw meat. Calamaris were small & not that crispy; the sauce it came with was super yummy!
    Also, I saw a pencil (probably used by the staff, everyday, all day) fall into a piece of our sushi & the server just took the pencil out & served the plate to us.

    Service was just okay today. I asked for lemon and lime for my water unfortunately the waitress had it attached to my tea cup which was odd but did not ruin my tea, a separate dish would have been best. The Calamari seems to get smaller and smaller which is dissapointing. Reason I rated a 3 star. I love this place and will return.

    I was very impressed with this place. Our waitress was nice and willing to answer out questions. I ordered the lunch special and it was good. Miso soup, seaweed salad and sushi. 😍 Amazing! …

  536. Ed Harper 2018/11

    Sushi was pretty good, but not great, and the entrees were very oversauced, over half the bowl was filled with a very strong soy sauce. Service was great, and incredibly friendly and very prompt with service. Would definitely try again.

  537. Luke LeProux 2018/11

    One of my favorite Richmond bars, and have something going on nightly like Blingo and Karaoke to keep it fun. The sushi used to ne decent years ago, but since then they have really stepped it up and its some of the best in town. Sticky balls or yum yum apps are a must try, 1$ PBRs if its raining or 100 plus degrees out, check it out. Great staff too, Al the bartender is the man.

    First off I love certain types of sushi, like California roll,shrimp tempura and newyork rolls. I wanted fresh made to order froma actual sushi spot instead of going to Kroger’s. This is my first time here and I have to be honest. The waitresses we’re nice and friendly ( had mines to go) I’ve had better sushi from Kroger’s . I feel this is over priced and not enough 16.00 dollars for a mini snack felt like. Not sure the night life but I went around 4pm on a Tuesday just had a taste for sushi today after running some errands. Mostly all sushi spots as closed until 5pm so this is how I ended up at this location. I did not like the taste or flavor of my California and shrimp tempura rolls. Won’t be going back, rather eat Kroger’s sushi at least it’s good and price is reasonable.
    Pics below this is all I got for $16.00 (minus the 3 that I ate)

    While the tater tots are still awesome, the sushi seems to have fallen off from all of my previous visits. Hopefully, this was just a bad day.

  544. Patrick Gore 2018/10

    Sticky rice has great food and drinks,and prices. I would recommend going during happy hour on Fridays. They have most of the menu at a reduced price.

  545. Rachael Henry 2018/10

    This place was recommended to me by a friend, but I honestly don’t know what she was thinking. I got a california roll, and a seaweed salad. The roll was warm and the imitation crab tasted off. The seaweed salad tasted like it was a week old and had been sitting out. It tasted off a it was dry!

  546. Joseph Gottlich 2018/10

    3 words!… Bucket of tots. If you love tater tots, this is the appetizer for you. You get this cute little bucket full of tots along with some good dipping sauce that’s delicious. I also tried the teriyaki Sticky wings. They were mouth watering. And for the entree, I had the Curry Fried Rice with chicken. Very filling, full of flavors.
    The atmosphere is cool too, if you don’t mind crowds and noise, which doesn’t bother me. I like the liveliness of the place, it’s energizing. And the night I went, there was 80s music playing in the background, super cool.

    I’d love to be able to give 5 stars bc our server was great and food was delicious, but the hostess honestly put a damper on our entire visit from the moment we walked in. She was rude and resistant to accomadating our group when it came to seating. There were hardly any customers get for some reason we couldn’t have the 5 top table we preferred bc I was told my son doesn’t count as a person and that we were not sure when the other 4 people of our group would be arriving. She just really set the mood off wrong for us on our one night off we get to enjoy ourselves during the week.

    Food is pretty good. The Garden Balls are delicious. Just don’t expect to accomplish any real socializing during peak hours or special events. It’s crazy noisy in there. Can’t hear yourself think, much less hold a good conversation.

  562. Allison Kalloo 2018/08

    I was disappointed. Service was slow and unattentive, ambience was uninspiring, music didn’t fit, and sushi rice was not prepared to standards and was rather dry. Rolls were bland overall. I was expecting to be blown away and I was underwhelmed. The place was a bit dirty, too.

  567. Antonio 2018/08

    This place was great. Good food, good music, decent service. I showed up with some coworkers for lunch. We started with a bucket of tater tots. Damn, I didn’t think tots could be this tasty, this was definitely a great starter for the group and the bucket was empty in a few minutes. Our entrees then followed, I ordered the Snap, Crackle, Pop and Sticky Balls. The roll was made up of salmon, jalapenos, and cucumber. If you’re used to spice, you won’t feel the heat on this one. At least, I didn’t. The Stick Balls was great too and an idea texture change up from the soft sushi roll. The service was good, the waitress, friendly. The decor was interesting and the music being played was fit for a young adult crowd. Overall, this is a great place to hit up for sushi and well worth the visit. Oh, PS – Just a heads up, they automatically add tip on the receipt. I’m not a fan of this, but it’s not a deal breaker either.

    Couldn’t say what this place is like during the day, but be careful coming here on a busy night! Very rough crowd and very dark and close quarters. Security is scarce and hard to find. Last time I was here I was attacked by a drunk person and had to leave and once I was outside I told security and they couldn’t do anything. Very young and aggressive crowd, borderline dangerously close quarters. Skip this place if you’re looking for a good time.

  599. Wesley Jones 2018/05

    Sushi was mostly rice, not even good rice. Was overly sticky and seems as if it was an old batch. We ordered the spicy Thai chicken with rice noodle. Probably was the most bland dish we have ever had in Richmond, possibly in the world. The restaurant and staff are not bad, just the food needs work.

    The food and service were both above average. The only reason I didn’t give it a perfect score was the cramped seating. We’ll definitely be going back.

    Love the bucket of tots they r so good and the bar tender at the time made me and my friends day he gave us a bucket of tots and the sauces and waters for free he saw us standing around forever but omg he was so sweet so shout out to the nice bartender THANKS AGAIN! But yeah I got the Sarasago sea roll I’m pretty sure that’s how it’s spelled but that was probably 1 of my top 10 favorite rolls

    they overcooked the impossible burger (but most places do) but made it work so well. it’s so refreshing to have a unique fusion kind of burger rather than the basic way most places make it. the vegan sauce and cheese was incredible in the burger.

    Would give 4 stars because the sushi was decent and the waitress was good but the fact the kids menu noodles is just a 29 cents bag of beef flavored Ramen noodles and your paying $5 for it is pretty steep if you think about it.

  617. Nathália M. 2018/04

    Great place to come for late night dinner or snacks. The sushi is not the best but honest. Appetizers are great option to share. They could improve their beer selection, though. In addiction, I think their dinner entrees are delicious. Beware of the spiciness level. Also, the service is quick. However, if you don’t like crowded and loud this my not be a good option.

    Try their sticky balls. If you go on a day when it’s raining or snowing ask for their $1 pbr’s. If you’re really in the mood you can try sake bomb. However if you try to get Red Bull and vodka be aware they do have an imitation energy drink so you will not be given a Red Bull and vodka. If you’re looking for a great place to get drunk. Try karaoke night I can’t remember which night it is but pick one it might work.

    The environment has two different shades. Hours between 10am-5pm is a relaxed scene.. then from those hours on the tables become dance stages! The food is good quality, though I personally prefer more spices/herbs for taste, but it wasn’t cardboard! If you are one that is introverted, this slab may not be one for you. Heavily crowded in the night owl times. Bartender is friendly, and knowledgeable. The servers could be more present and welcoming though. Aside from this bar/restaurant not being my cup of tea, I rate three stars for food, service, and environment.

    This restaurant is a little cramped and it may not be the best if you’re going just for simple sushi. But if you explore some of the more experimental sushi rolls, or try some of the other dishes, you’re probably going to find something you like. And everybody likes the buckets of tater tots! It’s a Richmond institution but not really my scene, and I felt like it’s a little spendy for what you get, so I’m not a frequent visitor.

    I came here to pick up food on my lunch break. Ordered and paid online and someone chased me out of the door yelling that I did not pay. Odd to me because I feel like that can be verified at pick up. Don’t think I’ll be coming here anymore. That was embarrassing and unnecessary.

  643. Tarah Elizabeth 2018/01

    Sticky Rice is okay. They really are not a Japanese or sushi restaurant that I would recommend if you are looking for high quality sushi, sashimi, or authentic Japanese. You can get a variety of foods, including tater tots, interesting fusion like their Sticky Balls, and many overly complex rolls. Their rolls fall apart because they have been overly packed with ingredients, and they really exploit using sauces. It is not at all my first choice for sushi in Richmond.

  649. Erika Falasco 2017/12

    This place is bumping, busy, has great sushi, vegan/vegetarian options and some good happy hour drink specials. I always find them to be crowded in the evening hours and since the interior is a little small this could bother some people depending on whether you care about eating somewhere quiet. I’m not usually looking to have a quiet night when I go here so this doesn’t bother me much. They also have good delivery/takeout service and a friend of mine tells me dollar pbrs are not just exclusive to happy hour. They also do them if it’s rainy, snowy, or over a hundred degrees! So when the weather’s extreme but doesn’t discourage you from heading out, head to sticky rice!

  678. Tim W 2017/08

    Used to live near them; sushi’s a bit pricey (you can get it cheaper pretty much anywhere), but the quality was never lacking. The staff aren’t usually too happy to be there, so neither was I. Go with a group during half price nights and grab their ‘Sticky Balls’ (this is a legit item they sell full of crab meat, and it’s AWESOME).

  679. George Mickles, CNP 2017/08

    So I’m at Sticky Rice right now. Very cool dive bar vibe, good ambient lighting. 4 tvs with different programs on. I got one of the combo meals. Comes with Miso Soup, 2 rolls and a cake pop. Sushi is quite good! Soup was alright. Sushi rolls are served w/ wasabi and ginger. The Wasabi served with the sushi is hot, but with a sweet undertone, quite pleasant!! I will definitely come back when I want some sushi!

    The original! The classic! Inventive fusion fare, hip decor, good service. Try their “Poki” sashimi roll.

  681. Andrew Subowo 2017/08

    Fantastic restaurant with a great waitstaff. Tots in a bucket are prime. Highly recommend anything in their menu! I had the mock szechuan chicken, and it was great!

  682. Holly Siedlecki 2017/07

    Great food, good value

  683. George G 2017/07

    The Appetizer was cold, the services was delayed or unconcerned. The sushi staff started arguing with each other in front my child about work business. Do better.

  684. John Varca 2017/07

    Awesome place. Small. Quaint and just downright badass. Janey (spelling ?) was awesome on bar and the place is cool. Stays open late. Great sushi variety also good non sushi bar food for the non sushi types. Beer list is good and they have amusing videos on the projectors. All in all it’s a great small, quaint not “fufu” place to have good sushi, maki and beer. Don’t pass it up. We stayed an extra night just to have another beer here. No regrets. 🙂

    The service was friendly and the food was good. The salad that came with the meal was great. The sticky balls were delicious. The rolls were good but not great. It was pretty pricey. While the food was good, I left a little hungry.

  686. Vanessa Wiser 2017/07

    Richmond classic, fusion sushi, great atmosphere, always crowded.

  687. Elias Chelala 2017/07

    Awesome food, cheap prices, great bar on Friday and Saturday playing amazing music!

  688. Deborah Wright 2017/07

    First time dining here, but won’t be our last! We ordered California rolls and fried shrimp rolls – delicious! Great service!!

    Grest food

  690. Peter Samuel 2017/06

    Karaoke is the move Tuesday nights!

  691. John Mattox 2017/06

    Come for the bucket of tots, stay for the dancing on tables. Always an eventful night.

  692. Marie Sudduth 2017/06

    Love the vegan options!

  693. Dale Jackowski 2017/06

    Fun crowd. Go for the bucket of tots and $4 rails

  694. Aneliese Apala Flaherty 2017/06

    They have vegetarian options for entrees and sushi. Tends to be busy always and they have fun nights like karoake and trivia. Decent food and you can get a bucket of tots.

  695. Mary Jordan Siebert (rvamary) 2017/06

    I love their creative take on rolls. They also have a lot of activities here. Visit their Facebook page for updates. If you’re looking for a great meal, at a decent price…and you’re bored…this is the place for you.
    They have great vegetarian options…and let’s not forget the tator tots. The tot sauce makes the experience!!

  696. Brianna Rauch 2017/06

    I received recommendations to go to this place and I also received negative stories about this place. I wanted to see for myself so I went with my mother and infant son. I was NOT disappointed! I enjoyed my meal a lot. We got the lettuce wraps (you build it), miso soup, sticky balls (highly recommend), and a couple sushi rolls. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious! It’s a smaller place and pretty cozy inside. There’s definitely a chill vibe here. The entrance is not wheelchair accessible.
    I broug t my stroller for my son and it was not a good idea. They do have high chairs and are accommodating towards children! Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu and my son. It was very much appreciated. I recommend this place! It also looked like they had take out as well while I was there.

    I’ve heard about this place for a long time and never quite got around to eating here. Being someone that cooks traditional Japanese food at home for 2-3 times a week for over 15 years I can tell you this is mediocre at best. The tables and seats were sticky (no pun intended) and service was slow. The sushi was average and the noodle dishes were completely flavorless. You’re better off hitting a quality place like Blue Fish Grill if you want small scale and high quality Japanese food.

    Good Food, Good Service

  699. Gayle R 2017/05

    The sticky balls here are the best thing on the menu!

  700. Fredy B 2017/05

    Good for dinner , but the real highlight was after 11pm the place let’s girls dance on the stage and on tables pretty good music too.

  701. Hunter Frostick 2017/04

    Always delicious!

  702. Arjun Saxena 2017/04

    Nice restaurant with neo-tokyo sushi and Japanese snacks. Could be a little less noisy

  703. Kristen Cornett 2017/04

    Great atmosphere – delicious food at good prices. Fun place to grab a drink, or lunch, or dinner, or late night fare. Fresh ingredients. Go when it’s raining!

  704. Kiah Williams 2017/04

    Seeing as how this is one of my favorite places, I was really disappointed in the service. Upon being seated, we were informed about how busy they were due to an event. Being a server, I completely understood and didn’t mind waiting. Well 10 minutes later, we hadn’t been acknowledged, greeted, or served at all. Once again, understandable seeing how busy they were. However, a server greeted each table around us, with one gentleman looking at our table/us, seeing our predicament, and just continued to ignore us. A simple “hey, be right with you” would have sufficed. This experience was disappointing, especially after raving about the good food and dragging my friend for his first time here.

  705. Lisa Fogleman 2017/04

    Delicious junk-food sushi, tater tots, and PBR’s. They also have great deals (Sushi Heaven on Monday is my favorite) and fun events (Blingo!)

  706. Thomas Foley 2017/03

    Food was decent. I’m not a sushi eater, but my dinner companions said the sushi was average. I had Mongolian Beef. Nothing special.

  707. Sarah C. Richardson 2017/03

    Good neighborhood vibe, fun food

  708. Shelton Díaz 2017/03

    I really loved this place before, but now it’s changed. The new service is awful. Our table was dirty. I asked for a refill right in the beginning, and I never got my drink back. Even when I asked about it I didn’t get it. We finished eating and we asked for the check, and got it 20 mins later.

  709. David Chang 2017/02

    The staff was really kind and always checked up on us. I didn’t try any of the sashimi but the rolls were good. If you’re looking to get the best sushi in town this place probably isn’t the place, but everything I ordered was really good and I definitely recommend this place.

    Very crowded, but a hip and happening place.

  711. Gabsi Majdi 2017/02

    service today was very bad ,she had a lot of attitude and she’s careless about customer satisfaction .its very disappointing because the place is nice ,food is good but such service can throw customers away .i left with bad mood because of her attitude .

  712. Sarah Elkins 2017/02

    Sticky Rice is always a wonderful place to get sushi. The tots are amazing. Great specials.

  713. Corey Morris 2017/01

    It’s so lit!

  714. Casey Patterson 2017/01

    Tuna bites were great.

  715. Jason Ryan 2017/01

    All of the food was amazing, and we got a lot of it. The saketinis were also worth a visit on their own.

  716. dan 774 2017/01

    This has been the worst sushi I’ve eaten in years plus we had to pay 20% forced tip for a table of 5. It’s also more pricey than most sushi places that I know in DC.
    You better have your sushi somewhere else

  717. TheKeishaf 2017/01

    Good food at all price points. Good variety. I love the sushi. It does lack in atmosphere and the bathoom could use some sanitary upkeep.

  718. Joe Acanfora 2017/01

    Food is good, place turns up at night.

  719. Justin F 2017/01

    Eclectic menu with an even more eclectic crowd. Great people watching with huge helpings. Don’t let the decor fool you, the food quality is very very good.

  720. WatchwarriorForChrist777 2017/01

    Sushi was amazing!! Only went twice and I would go back again and again. The customer service was perfect; no complaints on the looks or class of the place. Gives me good vibes. I would suggest it for my vegan, vegetarians, and omnivore friends. Even would suggest it for my family. Hope this place stays open for a LONG time. Best place ever for sushi in my place in all of Virginia.
    Just simply amazing!!

  721. Mahogany X 2016/12

    Nice place to share fun

  722. Tyler Benckert 2016/12

    Go to spot in RVA. Sushi is great, tots are awesome, PBR galore

  723. Carl Anderson 2016/12

    Sticky Rice is my favorite restaurant in Richmond. Everyone’s always nice and thoughtful. Do yourself a favor and get the bucket of tots and ask for extra sauce. 😀

  724. Dominic Espiritu 2016/12

    It’s decent sushi if you have never tried high quality sushi before. They are consistent and never have bad fish to the point where you feel sick, but if you are used to high quality sushi do not go here. I would call it super americanized sushi.

  725. Joseph Mensh 2016/11

    Go for the drinks, stay for the tots, leave when the sushi comes out.

  726. Steve Tartakovsky 2016/11

    Good creative rolls, quirky hipstery place that never disappoints.

  727. Patrick Gorrell 2016/11

    Always love Sticky Rice and always will. It is the standard I compare other sushi places to. If you want sushi in Richmond, it’s a must!

  728. Danielle Orlandi 2016/11

    I love sticky rice so much! The tots are a fun way to start off the meal but the fun does not stop there. Every sushi roll is creative, unique and fun to dive in to. If you are a sushi fanatic like myself and you like to try different combinations, this is the place for you.

  729. Wouter Deconinck 2016/10

    Great sushi, also for vegetarians. On a Saturday night definitely too noisy and crowded though.

  730. Cody Huber 2016/10

    Delicious food with many vegetarian and vegan options. I love the atmosphere and portion size

  731. Frank 2016/10

    Tasty food with a cool vibe. I am by no means a sushi expert, but the food tasted good. I would go again.

  732. James Yount 2016/09

    Really liked going here for Sushi when I was in the area. Big selection, not too shabby of a selection.

  733. Ha An Nguyen 2016/08

    The tots buckets is great (and massive).
    Their sushi rolls are really big too, and are quite overwhelming. They’re also over loaded with stuff so it’s not like traditional ones at all. I’m not a fan of their sushi but the crab cake sandwich was really good!
    The atmosphere is quite cool, and they seem to have many events like trivia and karaoke.
    They are also a Pokemon go gym 🙂

    Great sushi! Prices are good if you go around happy hour. A bit pricey afterwards. They have a takeout subsidiary across the street.

  735. Liz Spaetzel 2016/07

    Best sushi in town with a casual atmosphere.

  736. Joel Ingram 2016/06

    Classic Richmond. Decent Sushi and great atmosphere if you are into the vcu scene.

    Great sushi and a awesome atmosphere.

  738. shaquwan Simmons 2016/04

    Food is good but fruit fly’s are discussting

  739. Stephen Hurst 2016/04

    OK, as sushi and food go, its average. Now that they have taken the Sticky Balls off Happy Hour AND doubled the PBR price as well, do you really think I will frequent again? LOL! If I am to spend my sushi roll on this and get a lower quality than the 5-6 other competitors in the general area, they gotta give me some value in return. Sad, sad, sad. Greed kills another great night out once again.

  740. Thanh Trinh 2016/04

    Great food, Great interior design, very fitting to the culture.

  741. Shannon Roulet 2016/04

    Tots are great, really fresh sushi but service can be spotty and it tends to get crowded very fast around dinner or on karaoke night(tuesdays).

  742. Ryan Gressett 2016/04

    The temperature in the restaurant was much like the humid hot day outside. While my server was polite…she never once checked in after bringing my food. Speaking of which, the sushi and lack of low sodium soy sauce was downright disappointing. I found it difficult to choke down the room temperature cuts of fish on which I spent 40 bucks. I don’t think I’ll be back. Be warned, this has food poisoning written all over it.

  743. James Tenney 2016/02

    A place in Richmond that MUST be checked out.

  744. Jose Aquino 2016/02

    Love it was my firt time have great time

  745. Corrina Jost 2016/02

    Good food, but limited menu, limited beer selection

  750. Jim Pope 2016/01

    Top notch food. The sticky balls and the tuna bites were my favorite out of everything we ordered.

  751. Darielle Wilhelm 2016/01

    Awesome food during the day! Also lots of fun at night, great drinks and great music!!

  752. Aaron Waxman 2016/01

    It’s like Tokyo meets Brooklyn. My friend sums it up well: tats and tots. The food isn’t bad, but there’s better sushi in rva.

  754. lauren leggett 2015/12

    I do consider this to be a fairly overrated spot in Richmond. The food is decent, but it’s extremely expensive for what it is. Better food can be had elsewhere for similar prices. It’s also extremely loud in here pretty much all the time. That’s fine for a bar/club but for a restaurant to have that volume is annoying. I’m sure that makes me sound old but it’s been so loud on so many occasions (even during lunches) that I couldn’t hear anything a person sitting BESIDE me was saying directly into my ear. That’s just too much.

  755. Tatyana Fadeeva 2015/11

    The vegan options are amazing and very delicious!

  756. Stefanie Farris 2015/10

    To me the sushi was mushy. Fish quality was not amazing. Highlight was the bucket of Tators. Service was good and strong drinks though.

  757. Chris Nguyen 2015/06

    Based on my one lunch at this place, I would say Sushi Rice is a quality sushi restaurant at a fair price. I had their Godzilla roll and a spicy tuna roll. The Godzilla roll lived up to its name, being huge and slightly intimidating. The roll tasted great and was feeling. The spicy tuna roll also was very good. I would say rice is very important for sushi, and the right here was good although not great. The sushi chef was a Caucasian woman, which did not bother me at all. I will say though, that she wasn’t as friendly as other sushi chef at similar restaurant. She was just friendly enough. She’s in chat with customers like some other sushi chefs are prone to do when customers sit at the sushi bar.

  758. Julie V. 2015/04

    Very poor service, I had a horrible experience. I got there with 5 more friends, we asked for a table because some of us (like 4 people) wanted to have dinner and we wanted to sit down and have fun, so… the waitress didn’t want to give us a place to sit down because she said if one people wasn’t having a dinner we wouldn’t be able to have a table, she told us to find some place at a bar (seriously?). After that she asked for our ID’s even if we didn’t ask for drinks, just for food. She was so rude, so we left and we went to Sullivans, where we had an amazing service and food.

  759. athena coates 2015/02

    crappy service, food was meh. won’t be back. seems crappy service is a theme with this place.

  760. C L 2015/02

    RVA watering hole + reliable sushi. Legendary, unsophisticated and solar powered ! The “Tot’s” are fun to eat late-nite

  761. Darin Johnson 2015/01

    Awesome sushi!!

  762. Sean Johnson 2014/12

    My wife & I enjoyed our experience. We had great sushi at a great price. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to satisfy their sushi craving.

  763. Nikki Bulluck 2013/12

    Love this place. Get their early on a weekend because this place fills up fast! Great atmosphere and amazing food. I was a vegetarian and all of the choices are great. Sticky Rice is a Richmond staple!

  764. Whitney Osofsky 2013/08

    Filthy restaurant. If you are eating there, don’t look up. There was thick dust covering almost everything near the ceiling.

  765. debralee ropman 2013/06

    This place have the best sushi in Richmond by far. Tasty & fresh. Next time I visit Richmond I def returning for the sushi. Prices are affordable. Thanks.

  766. Melissa Ivey 2013/03

    Had a grreat time meeting new people!

  767. Charles Boltas 2013/02

    Food was great. Sake was great. Quick service. SUPER small restrooms.

  768. Shockoe Dentistry 2012/06

    Great little sushi spot! They pack a lot of good things in a little package. I love the Godzilla roll, Goochland roll, and the tater tots! I recently had the chance to watch “The Karate Kid” in its entirety while dining.

  769. Nicholas Lee 2012/04

    Food was ok but lacked quality for the price. The dishes did not seem to be cleaned properly and the tables were sticky. the service was lackluster but not horrible.

  770. Danny Jones 2012/03

    I went for karaoke it was GREAT. The staff was great very nice

  771. Sequoia Owen 2011/06

    Good food, bad service. Portion sizes are good though.

  772. Cat Smak 2011/05

    My boyfriend and I went here because we heard the sushi was really good. NOT TRUE. I’d rather go buy some cheap sushi from Bloom than eat here again. The fish isn’t fresh, and the wasabi wasn’t even hot. The atmosphere was nice, and their American food would probably be okay. But as far as their sushi, don’t waste your money. It’s not only bad but it’s also over priced.

  773. Loral McNamara 2011/03

    disappointing….. the sushi was average and SMALL portions. the worst part is that it is overpriced too!! there are other sushi places in the fan i would rather go to.

  774. Leanne Santiago 2011/02

    This place is da bomb

  775. Dennis Little 2008/02

    I have to agree with some of the other reviews of Sticky Rice. It is a really fun place to hang out on the weekend, but it is quite dirty and the food is nothing to write home about. Be prepared for a good wait on a table. This is one of our last choices for Japanese in Richmond.
