Surprising good food!

We joined some friends for a birthday dinner. The interior is pretty small, but the covered patio accommodated the 20 of us and sheltered us from the spring rain. The comprehensive and affordable menu contained the usual items, but my one criticism would be there are very few meatless options.

Maybe I expected more since I was surrounded by ocean. I mean the rolls were good, a bit on the small side, and a bit high on the price. Maybe I had set the expectation at to high of a level. If priced less I may have given the overall experience a very good.

This Japanese Restaurant offered a good quality of Sashimi and Miso Soup. The chicken teriyaki was average. Service was good. The interior was a bit strange. Plastic chairs in a beautiful environment.( garden)

Outdoor dining with parrots in the neighboring trees and the food was excellent. Prices are reasonable,but all was so good we kept ordering more. Loved it all and would certainly go back. Final delight, the fried ice cream in a sweetened tempura batter, sure beats fortune cookies.

The sushi here is spectacular! Authentic cuisine and excellent service, we stopped here for some sushi on St.Patrick's and enjoyed every minute. Having dined here during our last trip to Key West we were committed to coming back and were not disappointed! Our server Sue was genuine in her service and very knowledgable about the menu. We will definitely be... More

Happy hour advertised everywhere--called--yes--they have happy hour. Seated and server approached and I asked about happy hour. "Everyday happy hour here-LOL" Translation--no real happy hour. Specifically came for "hamachi kama" ...advertised "grilled" as it should be. "Oh we don't have it-LOL" Wasn't funny to me. Service was good. Sushi-ho hum, small pieces--nothing extraordinary and you would think it SHOULD be--right... More

I had sliced pork in a ginger sauce with rice. It was also very good. Very nice atmosphere, would eat there again. Only negative was there were not... More

I have been going to this restaurant for over ten years. It is consistently excellent. While I don't eat sushi every time I dine out, if I do this is the place. Having had sushi in Europe, recently in Italy, plus UK, also in Asia, often in Bahrain, all along the east coast in the U.S., Origami still stands as... More

I really enjoy this restaurant and rank it as my #1 Sushi & Japanese Restaurant in the Keys. The front of house service is always wonderful/accommodating and the food is consistently great. I appreciate the people who own and work at this restaurant.

Eat here if you're really craving sushi - it certainly satisfies that urge. But if you want excellent sushi, keep looking. The tempura was heavy and looked like the oil needed changing. Gyoza were good.
