Went here on a Monday night and it was just ok. I think the big picture here is that I am not a very picky eater and most of the food was good. However, I have spent my fair share of time in Japan and other local Japan Sushi shops to know that this was not very authentic. Atmosphere -... More

The place is decent and nice. The price is good and the sushi is pretty nice. No matter what you order, they bring some snack and soup at the beginning and then the main food. The sushi was good. We were a group of 12 people and we tried almost everything. They also have a fixed percentage of tip included... More

Greasy food. Far from authentic. It may look like a Japanese restaurant, but the taste is off. Avoid it if you could.

Totoro is a class act from the prompt greeting on arrival to the fond farewell on departure. 1 Inari, 1 Avo/Cuc roll, 1 Veggie roll, 1 Veg Bento = delight! Tea, soup and salad are also top notch. Service is friendly and the price is right. Enough to serve 2 for $30. Go, and have fun. Whether it's a quick... More

Took a visitor for lunch today. Food was outstanding. We ate a ton of sushi. Place is very clean and service good. Probably the best sushi in Ann Arbor. Only issue is that they do not serve alcohol.

1 Yasai croquet, 1 Gyoza (steamed) 2 Tofu skins (Inari) ~ could've done with 1, 1 Summer Roll, 1 Vege Roll Combo, and 1 Miso soup, salad and tea was all she wrote. Superb service and scrumptious lunch, as always. In the middle of art fair even.

This is a go-to place for us before or after a movie at State or Michigan Theater. Good sushi, teriyaki, udon, and other dishes. Simple and clean, no frills, but solid food.

Very respectable place to eat. I was visiting from California, so my expectations were low. I was pleasantly surprised. Decor is nice, but some of the seats are worn and need replacing. Everything is very clean with the the fresh fish displayed in the traditional way. I was greeted nicely and the service was warm and friendly. The hostess told... More
