I've requested items not on the menu, and I'm always accommodated. This place is run by a young family. It's small and quaint, and the food is great and fresh. At times the service is slower BUT each thing is made fresh, and just the couple are typically working.

Midori's has the best sushi in town and her Tempura is also excellent. It is sometimes slow but I don't know of any Sushi places that aren't. This is my first suggestion when Sushi comes up.

Good sushi! Wonderful tea! I like the ginger latte. Great value for lunch specials. I had the chef's choice sushi lunch. It included a small salad,

Have eaten at Midori many times over the last several years. It is hard to find quiet restaurants that support a good conversation and this is definitely Midori's strong suit. All of the food is made fresh, which means that you may have to wait for your sushi when they are busy--but it is worth the wait! I always anticipate... More

We had a very nice sushi and noodle feast at Midori's. Great service, and we got our food quickly -- although we did arrive early on a week night. We have waited a bit for sushi when they are busy... but it is worth it. The fish is always fresh and tasty. Good noodle dishes too, and they give you... More

We've had many lovely meals at Midori's, and it's also been a hit with out-of-town guests. Everything we've ever ordered has always been top-notch, from sushi to tempura to egg-and-fish custard. It's not a place you can get in and out of quickly--they're making everything fresh to order--but it's quiet enough that you can enjoy conversation while you wait.

My husband and I have eaten here many times over the last 8 years and love it. It's by far my favorite sushi restaurant in the Twin Cities. The fish is always very fresh and we've never had a bad meal. The lunch prices are amazing - $10-15 for full sushi dishes or bento boxes. Their non-sushi meal options like... More

I love this place. It is especially good if you are a vegetarian. The chef makes the most wonderful platter of vegetarian sushi and their miso soup can be made with vegetarian broth.

Midori's is one of my favorite family-owned and operated restaurants in the Twin Cities. Their food is authentic and delicious and reasonably priced for a night out. A great date (or double-date!) location for sure. Make sure you try one of the bento box combinations so you can try their excellent sushi and crispy, light-as-air tempura. Aria's Rice Balls are...

We had a mixed experience at this place. It was neither empty nor packed, and it's small and there were at least three wait staff, but still it took us almost two hours to have a simple two course meal. The first course we had was sushi, and the sushi is excellent. For the second course, I ordered Soba noodles... More
