The food was really tasty and there are plenty of sushi options. They also have GF soy sauce. Only a few of the menu items are GF, but they were delicious! I had Vietnamese noodles and it was so flavorful and filling. My only issue was the confusion on my servers part knowing what is or isn’t GF on the sushi menu. He had to return 3 times (the third time was with a chef) because he started with “all our sushi options are GF” so I just ordered what I thought looked good. Obviously not all their options are GF, so just ask for clarification if your waiter seems unsure. He checked with his kitchen staff at least before putting my order in so I did not get sick. It’s also an adorable spot on a cool street, great for a date night. They offer lunch sushi options too
I ordered something marked gluten free and communicated that I have celiac disease and asked them to be careful for cross contamination. They brought me a dish with a fried spring roll on top and I asked them if the fryer was used for other things (like tempura), which it was. I asked them to remake the dish. They brought a new dish out which I began to eat. I then realized it had very small fried onion fragments mixed in with the peanuts. I decided to cut my losses and order simple cucumber avocado rolls to take home. I just opened the package and they put soy sauce in with the rolls, which is dripping into the container. I will never return.
Nooshi is a good sushi place. However, it is among those DC sushi spots I would call 'a dime, a dozen.' Eating in, the staff is friendly and the place is always well visited. The sushi is good but nothing to write home about. I recommend you ask for a salmon and avocado maki roll and have the BBQ eel and avocado maki. I'll visit again but only because it's slightly above average and close to where I live.
