We tried lots of different sushi and it was all fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. The tempura was great as well...not too heavy or greasy. My daughter also loved her teriyaki chicken. All the staff made us feel like family and wanted us to enjoy everything. A great Japanese culinary experience.

Drove a long way to their new location on Bob Hope Drive. Not worth the extra time. Decent sushi, but no specialty martinis as advertised on their website, and the chicken teriyaki ordered by one person in our party was dismal. Very mediocre atmosphere and service.

My husband and I are sushi afficionados and like to try sushi bars in new places. While vacationing in Palm Springs, I looked up Midori's and we decided to give it a go. Although it is kind of tucked away inconspicuously in a strip mall, it turned out to be one of the best sushi exjperiences we've ever had. Though... More

I love this place! This retaurant has wonderful food and a great staff. I enjoy coming here at least once a week. The sushi is always fresh and delicious. I highly recommend eating here for that real Japanese authentic taste.

Midori has moved over to Rancho Mirage on Gerald Ford and Bob Hope. I am telling you all this because it is my favorite sushi restaurant in the desert. If you want a relaxed atmosphere while still enjoying great fresh sushi, this is the place for you. The restaurants has all the normal selections you would expect to see in... More
