It was beyond difficult to understand the woman that answered the phone, nearly impossible. I did manage to thrift out that they are open until 9PM and are open for dine-in after several tries. The word from the other tables is there is no sushi...chef working here tonight. Ok. Should be interesting. They made the table in front of us incorrectly Ordered 2 Las Vegas roll, no king crab today, a dragon roll, spicy scallop roll, 2 ginger salad and an edamame. $46.90. They were skimpy about the sriracha, I asked for more. The woman brought the whole bottle for us to fill up ourselves. The dragon roll wasn’t my favorite, way too thick for my liking. The scallop roll is okay, different. The Las Vegas roll is the better of the 3 rolls, but every few rolls something would taste odd, almost musty or moldy to me. Could not quite place what was off though. Service was ok.More

My wife wanted to try a new sushi place and we were told about Happy Sushi. Had a good selection of the traditional nigiri sushi and some great speciality rolls. Ordered the usual California roll and tuna rolls which were good, but not great. The...Philadelphia roll and the chili tuna roll were excellent. Ordered a futomaki roll which I don't recommend at all. Not what I have come to expect in a futomaki roll...lots of missing ingredients. Place is just a very simple restaurant that serves a variety of decent sushi and other traditional Japanese food. I would definitely go back again to try other menu items.More

This was a great place to enjoy a meal. The service went downhill a while ago. It seemed like it was coming back but then regressed. Salads were forgotten about. Most of the time, the food comes out a different times. The food was pretty...good once it arrived. There are too many other choices out there to not have to put up with this service. They lost regular customers in us.More

I called ahead to have some Cali Rolls and they took my order very well. No issues - picked up and paid no problems. The server was very polite and it was less than what I expected to pay. The tastes is very good and...everyone that had them said they would go back! Best if all they close later than all the other sushi places nearby - 10pm. Thanks!More

First time here today for lunch. Stopped in with my brother who is a sushi fan. Arrived at 11:50. Seated immediately. 6 other patrons in the joint. Not a luxurious interior by any stretch. Might hold 48 people at tables and about 8 at the...sushi bar which is at the back of the restaurant. Server was very pleasant and efficient. No small talk.Took our order and went to kitchen. In the next 15 minutes our order came out, and the tables were full. Pretty much all Japanese patrons. We usually use that as a sign that the food is good. And it was. Prices are very reasonable and the variety of food that we sampled was all very good. I did not know this place was even there until I looked on Yelp for sushi joints in Novi. I will now remember that it is there as a currently dependable sushi place. "Happy Sushi" is an appropriate name for my lunch today. A go to place in my book.More

Small location in a strip mall. The food however, is very good and very reasonable. In addition to sushi, they have tempura, teriyaki, ramen, noodles, gyoza, seaweed salad. Beer,wine and of course tea. On weekends can be crowded. Open for lunch and dinner

So right from the second i walked in the door i knew it was not going to be great. When i walked in and saw my server sleeping at a table, i was immediately disappointed! And then i asked for a simple rum and diet...coke and got just a glass of diet. Then i asked my "sleeping server" for a real rum and diet and she looked at me as if I was the one who didn't speak English.. i have NEVER had a problem at Happy Sushi and this is one of my favorite sushi restaurants... BUT... i was completely dissatisfied!!!!!More

This little sushi shop inside a strip mall will not disappoint. I have been going for years, once and a while we try something else that pops up, but we always go back to The Happy Sushi. And they have a liquor license, so you...can enjoy a Japanese beer or Sake with your sushi. Try one of their specialty rolls....More

I frequent this place because it's close to me. I have to say, the food is pretty good but very typical for a Japanese restaurant. The staff has no personality what so ever. It's an ugly place in a strip mall, but like I said,...if you want sushi or hot soup in the winter, pull in, be prepared for minimal services at an average price (lunch specials are pretty special though). The lunch specials are like $7.00 with plenty of food and they bring it out in 5 minutes....More

What a pleasant surprise. Stopped in for a carry out and left with some of the best sushi I have had in the midwest. I will be back often, bypassing a half dozen decent sushi bars.

We had the spicy tuna roll, California roll and the rainbow roll, as well as a seaweed salad. The fish was certainly fresh which is great but there was no flair at all to any one of our choices. The seaweed salad had good flavor...but actually gas ice in it so I guess it was frozen before they served it to us. Overall, it was what I'd expect from sushi in Michigan.More

Ok - everyone has their hole in the wall restaurant that just delivers great food at an affordable price. You know the one that you don't really want your friends to know about but is great for both take out and a well deserve meal....Well for me Happy Sushi is it. Nothing fancy just great food. I am a big fan of the spicy tuna rolls, spice salmon crunch, the happy roll, and the ell roll. Soup is good too! Others might have better deoc (this is buried in a mall) but the staff is consistent and you are really there for the food.More
