An old faithful is still awesome!!!

Origami has been around for a long, long time in restaurant years and I know why. The sushi is amazing, the drinks are creative and yummy, and the service is excellent!!!

We don't come here often, maybe 2-3 times per year. The food--sushi, rolls, tempura-unfortunately was mediocre at best. Didn't seem fresh and the tempura was really weak. Very few real vegetables in the tempura--mostly onion goop. To make it worse, we waited a very long time. Service was friendly but unapologetic. Won't be back for a while.

I am not a fan of Japanese food especially sushi, so I was here with a small group of professional colleagues. They were quite enthusiastic about the sushi. One of them from the east coast said it was excellent. I had the tempura which was very generous and crispy. The ambiance is very comfortable and subdued, and the service was... More

Saw another restaurant in downtown, but it was the "chef at the table" style, not what I wanted. Saw this in a search for Japanese style in downtown, at the corner of First and First. Hamachi Kama, rice, daikon, miso, and a Kirin. Yellowtail was good portion, tender, nice flavor. Well worth trying, I'm going to try to visit again... More

I always love eating at Origami - the nigiri is wonderfully fresh! I also enjoy the large selection of sashimi and nigiri that is offered. Paired with Plum Wine and Mochi ice cream - It was an amazing dinner!

Best sushi in the Twin Cities. My daughter and I usually meet there for lunch several times a year. Looking forward to my next visit.

The times I've been to Origami we've chosen to go because of the reviews. We've gone at different times and on different days over time thinking that would make a difference. It didn't. I'm not sure why the overall Trip Advisor rating is 4.5. The sushi is fresh but the there is nothing special about it. We've ordered from both... More

Origami hosts happy hour 7 days a week from 5-6:30 every day. It includes a variety of food and drink offerings. We sampled some rolls and tempura. The sushi was solid, but we were less impressed with the tempura. The service was attentive and cheerful. Overall, we considered it a good value and nice meal. There is seating available on... More

I loved the whole atmosphere of this place. From outside it doesn't look like much, but there are actually 2 stories and 2 sushi bars. Service is impeccable. I have tried something different the few times I ate there, but couldn't get away from the NY roll. This place goes down in history as my favorite place to order sushi... More
