As South Silver Spring residents we desperately wanted this business to succeed hoping that it would bring more restaurants and retail towards our end of the city. Over the years we have fostered a relationship with Stacy and her husband Leo, as Scott developed their website and continues to work on it when needed.
Not many start up restaurants could survive in Ikko's location, especially four years ago, but their success is a testament to the owners commitment to hiring top notch sushi chefs, serving the freshest fish possible, and going far out of their way to make sure all customers leave their restaurant happy (just ask for Stacy if you have any concerns).
While many restaurants are nickeling and diming you for condiments and substitutions, Ikko has remained very generous as to what customers get "on the house." Everyone starts out with a complimentary miso soup and house salad that is often followed by a surprise appetizer. We almost always start out with an order...or two... of Ikko's fire mussels.
Scott's "go to" is the purist's tuna and salmon rolls while mine are the more creative Red Skin, 007, and Tiger rolls.

If you like eel than I highly recommend trying the Spider Roll.
