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
