Whether traveling together or separately- my whole family always looks forward to a layover at DTW to hit Sora!! Great sushi and the rest of the menu. Highly recommend it. Just remember you are at an airport restaurant, not a 5 star eatery.

I frequent this restaurant when in the DTW airport if ever I have a decent amount of time to connect. It is not at all for quality but because of dietary restrictions. There is a very pleasant Southeast Asian lady who works here - though...More

I was starving and had a craving for some type of Asian food. With P.F. Chang’s closed in this airport until October 10th I headed just steps away to Sora, and was not disappointed. Service is fast here - staff knows that customers are in...More

I've actually been coming here for years. Tonight was just about the worst service I've received at any restaurant. I travel often and have very reasonable expectations. Long waiting periods, excuses and dismissive attitudes. Very disappointed.

Say at the bar and finished my Rainbow Roll and beer in 18 min. Efficient bar service and fresh sushi. Place does some significant volume, probably always good if you can deal with the crowd.

Overall good food. Good sushi. Spicy Ramen noodle soup was awesome. Service was good. Really not bad for airport food. Expensive. Some of the sushi rolls we ordered were like $25 a roll. Yup.

While on a layover, I decided to get a spicy tuna roll from here. It took a couple of minutes for the roll to be made. There was plenty of spicy sauce. I enjoyed it. They have several different places to sit with quite a...More

Striving for mediocrity is about the best thing I can say for this restaurant. It is always high risk to get sushi at any airport but particularly in Detroit. When I had the first time over a year ago it was very tasty. Over the...More

Had a layover in Detroit and ate here for lunch. I had a house salad with ginger dressing and the Piston Volcano. I really enjoyed the Piston Volcano and would order again, it also looks really neat! If you don't like spice, then I wouldn't...More

I loved everything about this place. The food was super yummy, freshly made, and authentic. There’s plenty of selection on the menu too. Definitely recommend even if someone is a fussy eater.
