Usually not a fan of tapas, so I'm glad we came here for Restaurant Week, which was a great value. Our waiter was great, the food was deceptively simple and surprisingly flavorful, with each skewer offering a unique experience. The desserts were incredibly delicious (although maybe a tad too sweet); definitely get the house-made marshmallow. The beef skewer is also a must-have. Ordering the chef's choice is a wise decision. It may not seem like there are a lot of options, but you're in good hands. There's also an adorable bar downstairs that plays anime.

Go check this out. It's different so worth a visit. The owners and the staff were incredibly friendly. The bar downstairs is lots of fun. Ok yeah its in a part of DC with no foot traffic but that's what made the experience more interesting. It wasn't packed like a 14th street mob scene.

This property has a bad habit of installing restaurants that drain your pocketbook and still leave you hungry. The food can be exquisite, no doubt, but at the end of the day, it's still mostly chicken parts on skewers and this spot is well penetrated into NE DC; something more affordable and filling would be appreciated.

We enjoyed this restaurant. It offers some unusual dishes. But, it is pricey for the amount of food you get. Would go back.

Good eatery situated a bit in the outskirts of the town, good selection of quality yakitori and Japanese drinks. A grilled marshmallow for the desert is a must.

Finally we got a decent Yakitori place, which satisfies tongues of Japanese people, in DC. You should make reservation to secure your seats. Variety of pieces are available and grilled on charcoal; it was the first time to find cartilage, our favorite, in town. They use Tamari soy sauce (gluten free!) locally made in Virginia by San-J, which adds to the depth of flavor. Handmade marshmallow was awesome. Highly recommended.

Had a great time trying the only Yakitori in DC. All food was delicious and there was enough variety to keep us happy. I've had Yakitori at amazing restaurants in Japan and New York and Momo Yakitori is among them.

I have long been interested in Japanese culture and consider myself a bit of a foodie, so when I heard about a Japanese yakitori place opening in the Langdon Park neighborhood, I knew I had to check it out! The space has a modern, eclectic feel, even down to the bars of carbon in the water pitchers and cat bowls. We tried several different skewers and all were delicious. My favorite was chicken thigh with leak, soo good!

There's a second bar downstairs with an anime theme selling ramen (instant, but a mind-boggling variety) with choice of mix-ins. We'll be coming back for anime, ramen, and drinks in the near future.

This is the real deal. My wife is Japanese so we know what is, and isn't, real Japanese food. The veggie and meat plates are tasty and are made authentically - both in terms of ingredients and method. The grilled chicken and other meats are charcoal grilled with the same coals used in Japan which gives the meats a nice, roasted flavor. I also like the drink menu which is full of reasonably priced sake, sochu, and Japanese beers. This is must try for anyone who enjoys Japanese food, which is most people!

Momo Yakitori was great - really well done skewers with some fun interpretations. Great options for the veggies, but a lot of chicken dishes if you order one of the larger chef choice options. I would probably go with a smaller one of those and make sure you order off of the appetizers and veggie menus because those are outstanding - particularly the green beans and meatballs.

Second time visit and it was even better than the first. We ordered Chef Selections and everything was outstanding. Last time, some of the skewers came a little cold but everting was hot off the Hibachi this time. Service was also great as usual Cant wait to go back! Sorry, no photos again as we scarfed our food down.

This is the real deal for yakitori (grilled meats/veggies on a skewer). The staff and owner are Japanese so they do this right. It is focused on meats so I don't recommend for those that don't eat meat. Ideally, this is a place to go on a date or with a friends and chow down on some nicely flavored grilled meats while sipping sake, shochu, or a cocktail.

Best yakatori in DC. The other places that have yakatori in DC, overcooks the heck out of the meat. I'm personally not a fan of dry overcooked chicken. These guys cooked the chicken perfectly. Just keep in mind that they dump the spicy seasoning on everything so if that is an issue for you, let them know.

To start its little of the beaten path coming from Arlington, but nothing crazy. They have a charcoal water to go with the Yakitori theme, which is pleasant enough but didn't amount much. I ordered the 10 piece chef's choice set, which after receiving it seems to the "whole chicken" set, which I think should be renamed as the "entire chicken" set. The problem for me was that my server seemed to be guessing at what was what, and was able to say what any of the actual yakitori skewers were, not that it mattered too much since it was all chicken. There was just something about the environment that didn't do it for me, between the bland art deco and the not very helpful server. The yakitori was delicious but something was lacking from the total experience.

The most authentic Yakitori experience you can get in DMV and beyond. Highlights: exclusive sake offerings(ex.dassai 39 and much more), almost every part of chicken is available to order(flights offering inside out), charcoal imported from japan(even filter water), everything house made with both knowledgeable & super friendly staffs. Amazing experience worth an hour drive.

Momo Yakitori is a must-visit if you're on Rhode Island Ave. NE. The food is amazing, the sake is fantastic, and the servers and chefs are incredibly friendly and welcoming. This is our favorite restaurant within walking distance of our neighborhood (Brookland) and I can't speak highly enough of it!

The place was cute enough but the food was very bland and not worth the money we spent. Unfortunately, we ended up leaving and going to a Nother affordable restaurant to finish out dinner as we felt we would never get our dollars worth.

Momo Yakitori is nice inside, the decor is modern and clean. There was plenty of street parking in the side streets off Rhode Island Ave around 7:30pm on a Friday night in March, it was a cold night so maybe some people were not trying to go out. The bar area is small, there isn't much room for hanging out at the bar. There aren't a lot of tables, so reservations are recommended. It has a really high tech toilet in the unisex bathroom which is pretty cool. The food was good, the menu limited. Overall I recommend this place.

Waiter was trying hard but not well trained and was unsure of the menu or what was served. One of the dishes was nearly inedible — bone and sinew — and May have been partially raw. Disconcerting. We wanted to like this place but given what you get I feel I could do this at home for far less money... The wagyu was good but for $10 a skewer not worth it. We may give it another shot as we are in the neighborhood...

I've gone to Momo Yakitori twice now and really enjoyed the food both times. The restaurant is a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip. It's a smaller place but the ambiance is very nice and the food is delicious. As far as skewers, I'd recommend the mushrooms, shishito peppers, and Japanese meatballs. The cucumber salad was probably my favorite dish. Everything seems very authentic and I'm excited to go back again.

Well, I was hoping for so much but it certainly did not live up the expectations. The concept is great and is what is needed in the neighborhood. The service was fair and the noise level from the music was grate, you could hold a conversation with your table mate.
The food was disappointing overall with a few exceptions. The duck hear skewers were wonderful. My spouse and I order the Chefs Choice of 5 and then ordered several others like the chicken skin and the chicken meatballs, and the Waygu beef. The chicken skin was under cooked and chewy and warmed fat, the pieces on the end however where what you would expect crispy. The meatballs were seasoned well but every bite had bits of cartilage and that was off putting. The Waygu was expensive and when it arrived two small pieces of beef that were more fat and gristle. A big disappointment. It will take some doing to get us to go again.
The highlight was the Sake and the dessert.

Really want to like Momo Yakitori, as the city would really benefit from some proper Japanese bar food establishments. We even drove 20 miles into the teeth of Friday rush hour traffic to try it. But the food quality was fairly “meh” and the service well-meaning but ultimately a bit lacking.

It is still early days for Momo and hopefully it will improve. We’ll be rooting for it. But presently it has quite a way to go.

Finally! Some authentic Japanese food in DC that isn’t just ramen (which I love, but variety is good)! Momo is exquisite. I am not vegetarian, but generally don’t order meat when I go out as a preference. Because I was at a yakitori place however, I had to order some chicken... and it did not disappoint. Chicken skewers can be pretty boring and dry, but the chicken breast skewers with plum sauce were phenomenally tender and well-seasoned. I also loaded up on veggies—I loved the vegetables in dashi (I LOVE dashi...) and would order a tub of the cucumber salad if I could. Really. Well done, Momo Yakitori! Can’t wait to go back!

Wish the menu was a little more diverse. Shrimp or other seafood. The chicken skewers were excellent. We had the whiskey highball, the drink was just okay. You’d have to order a lot to feel full. We ordered $40 worth of skewers and still went for steak & cheese sandwiches at carry out immediately afterwards.

So happy to have Yakitori restaurant opening in DC. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Everything was so flavorful and perfectly grilled - our favorites were chicken skins, livers, hearts and negima. I gave 4 stars only because some skewers came a little cold. They might need to find a way to keep them warm if they are going to serve them all at once... or may want to serve them as they were ready because they taste is so much better when they are fresh off the grill (it is not an open kitchen style like typical yakitori place). Overall, we really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be going back and can’t wait til they are fully open and expand their menu!
