“Best Japanese restaurant in Minneapolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Origami, located in the warehouse district in Minneapolis, is a great find. The fish is fresh and delicious and the menu offers many Japanese specialities that you won't find elsewhere. They also have a happy hour where drinks and small portions of starters like their delicious gyoza and assorted sushi are a steal. Parking is free just across the street and there are a few tables outside for nice weather.

“Good food, some attitude”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Food was very good and the presence of many asian people, possibly japanese or of japanese origins was a good sign, Waiter was very attentive and food arrived quickly. Waiting staff was very cold, you do not have to be super-friendly but I got the feeling that we were not really welcomed. That is obviously not true, being a restaurant, but this is what the lack of smiling or of friendliness somehow showed

“Sushi was TOPS with Authentic Japanese Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The only thing that I didn't like was the lack of time available during this trip to have tried all their dishes. The service was impeccable and polite. The sushi menu was extensive and freshly made. The tuna sushimi was cul thicker than most restaurants and delicious. Of the 2 dishes that I tried with my sushi, the 'eggplant' dish was tops.

“Good quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Been here twice before and wanted to try a new place but still ended up here since all other competitors' reviews were not encouraging. Anyhow, went again with family. I have to say our waitress was very pleasant
and attentive. Edamame was good. Seafood quality was good as well. Better than any other sushi I have had in the Twin Cities. I would recommend the Summer roll and of course toro (tuna) which I recall comes with a cilantro citrus sauce. Hime roll is also good. Only comment is that the place needs a bit of a facelift. Otherwise, I would say this place deserves to be best sushi in Minneapolis on basis of quality. Oh, vegetable soup was good too!

“Nice place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Service was nice.
Decor was nice.
Prices seem rather high.
Portion size is small but filling.
Still a very good outing and I'll be back.
