Solid

This is a go-to place for us before or after a movie at State or Michigan Theater. Good sushi, teriyaki, udon, and other dishes. Simple and clean, no frills, but solid food.

Totoro is a class act from the prompt greeting on arrival to the fond farewell on departure. 1 Inari, 1 Avo/Cuc roll, 1 Veggie roll, 1 Veg Bento = delight! Tea, soup and salad are also top notch. Service is friendly and the price is right. Enough to serve 2 for $30. Go, and have fun. Whether it's a quick... More

well first of all the restaurant was warm because it got cold in Ann Arbor. But now to the service. They took my order pretty quickly and i got my food in a few minutes. Before the sushi came i got a free miso soup and salad so that was a bonus but if you don't want free soup and/or... More

Took a visitor for lunch today. Food was outstanding. We ate a ton of sushi. Place is very clean and service good. Probably the best sushi in Ann Arbor. Only issue is that they do not serve alcohol.

1 Yasai croquet, 1 Gyoza (steamed) 2 Tofu skins (Inari) ~ could've done with 1, 1 Summer Roll, 1 Vege Roll Combo, and 1 Miso soup, salad and tea was all she wrote. Superb service and scrumptious lunch, as always. In the middle of art fair even.

Very respectable place to eat. I was visiting from California, so my expectations were low. I was pleasantly surprised. Decor is nice, but some of the seats are worn and need replacing. Everything is very clean with the the fresh fish displayed in the traditional way. I was greeted nicely and the service was warm and friendly. The hostess told... More

Our party of 3 enjoyed quick seating, polite service, and a delicious meal pre-theater. No small feat on a Saturday night at 6. We were treated with a gorgeous presentation of tofu skin (inari), asparagus roll, avocado roll, radish, with house salad and miso soup. All accompanied by scented jasmine tea. Sublime.

Helpful and friendly staff, prompt service good menu, GREAT tasting food! I have eaten tons of sushi in tons of cities, and this may be in the top 5--though the prices won't reflect that! Came once solo and once in a group--well-appreciated both times! Detriments: No windows and the restaurant is narrow and not on a storefront.

A friend tried the daily special and was pleased. The salmon bento box lunch was delicious, if a little dry. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch even during 12 noon rush. Hot tea is refilled attentively. Miso soup is on target, and the ginger salad dressing yummy. Go and enjoy!

The sashimi bibimbap is the most delicious salad you'll ever have! So healthy and refreshing! You can get it as an entree or if there are a 3+ of you, splitting it for your salad is nice. Very solid miso. If you liked cooked rolls, the salmon on the beach is great! Reasonable prices and great food! Absolutely some of... More
