“Best sushi in Mpls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

It is tucked away in DT Mpls in the Warehouse District, but across the river from Northeast Minneapolis. It is hands down the best sushi I've had in landlocked Minnesota. The beer and cocktail selection is also superb. The waiters and waitresses have always been knowledgeable and friendly. If you are interested in sustainable seafood, they can tell you what on the menu to order. The sashimi is delectable. I've never had anything bad on this menu. The wait can be awhile, but there is an upstairs bar for waiting.

“Best Tempura I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I've had sushi in a fair few places around the world anf there's a street cafe in Sydney that was the benchmark for tempura. Origami has just raised the bar. It's light and perfectly cooked. The octopus and calamari was so tender. Clealry fresh produce and not overcooked.

The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable and the sushi and sashimi I had was after my temprua was equally good.

A not to miss restaurtant if you ever visit Minneapolis.

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Origami continues to be the best sushi in Minneapolis. They have a close competitor now that Masu is open, but back to Origami. They always serve fresh and consistantly delicious nigiri/maki. Origami isn't fancy, but it's a good spot. I look forward to the Uptown location. Mpls location has a decent happy hour so look for that. Cool to sit at the sushi bar as well, the chefs suggest good options.

“Bottom line: Best Sushi in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

IMHO - Hands down best sushi in minneapolis/St. Paul!! I reccomend letting the sushi chef pick out w/e he feels like making, and you will enjoy it!

It's also neat sitting at the sushi bar and watch them make it.

A minneapolis must if u like sushi!!!

“Great sushi!”

Very fresh tasting fish, great rolls, terrific service. This is my #1 sushi place when here on business. As good as the top tier places in New York.
