Inexpensive sushi, to be sure, but you get what you pay for -- fairly flavorless, nigiri are average-sized at best, and just the basics on the menu (no toro, ahi, uni, etc.). Other places in the Cities offer much tastier and more satisfying sushi. Service...More

Went in here for lunch today with a friend. The place is small, clean, and comfy. One woman running the whole place for lunch. We had 10 different pieces of Nigori along with 3 large rolls. With tea and soda it was only $62. Sushi...More

The tempura is fabulous as are the bento boxes. Great sushi. The restaurant also has specials each night including $3 beer on Saturdays. There can be a long wait for the food, but its worth it.

We were the first ones in the place on a Friday night, with at least three service people visible. Despite that, it took forever to have someone come over to get drinks, and even longer to take our order. The waitress did not seem very...More

Was very pleased with our food, prepared well and artfully. For those who want to swim against the American restaurant tide of ever-larger portions, Midori's offers a nice alternative with their mini-bento boxes. Given how much of the cost of a restaurant meal is in...More

Loved the miso soup and the ginger ice cream. I would order the shrimp tempura dinner again but only if I could share it with someone -- perhaps with an assortment of sushi. We were a large party (which they handle well) and people passed...More
