A hidden away and nondescript storefront makes the Sushi King an interesting choice. When you enter this pleasant Japanese restaurant you hear soothing music and are greeted by soft-spoken servers wearing silky kimonos. Sushi King's small dining area always seems to be bustling with both Asian and non-Asian customers and it's easy to see why this hidden-away restaurant appeals to a variety of customers. The menu offers enough traditional items to satisfy Howard County's large Asian population yet also provides plenty of choices for eaters who aren't comfortable with raw fish. The beauty of Sushi King is the way it combines traditional Japanese food and ambience with an American sensibility. This is the kind of place that gives customers chopsticks then wordlessly provides knives and forks if they are needed.
