Very good sushi and Japanese food in the middle of the hustle-bustle of the University of Minnesota campus (east bank). Was there for lunch with colleagues; service was terribly slow, though.

My lunch special was nothing special. Literally chopped iceberg lettuce with jarred sauce, mediocre chicken teriyaki with a few oily fried veggies and a pile of white rice. Service was slow, my table was so sticky my purse and book literally stuck to it and...More

Excellent decor and great await staff. The menu is extensive and offers a wide variety of dishes. Service was fast and shushi was excellent, as was the miso soup.

Haiku is one of the best sushi spots I've ever eaten at. I frequent haiku with friends and family because their happy hour deals are phenomenal. I usually get an appetizer and 2-3 rolls and spend $10-15 during happy hour. I know their hibachi food...More

I think this place only survives because it's on campus. It does not keep up with what contemporary consumers are expecting of Japanese cuisine. It has a lot of aesthetic appeal, but can't offer much beyond that. That being said, the happy hour deals are...More
