“Better sushi than I expected in Huntsville!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The fish was fresh and delicious. The service was very fast and friendly. The price was in line with most sushi places in larger cities. As with most places, the best value is to order sushi combo A B or C and avoid the a-la-carte choices. The only faults I could find was that the rice was a wee bit stickier than it should have been, the salad dressing was boring, and the tempura bits in the spicy salmon roll were cooked in oil that was too cold making them chewy rather than crispy. But hey, it's Huntsville! ... you're lucky to get sushi at all. Did I mention the fish was excellent?

“Great sushi and Japanese food”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Great value, food and service. Our lunch was delicious. Two people had the sushi and the other the tempura shrimp. Large servings and nicely presented. Great value.

“Momiji Japanese Bistro”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Huntsville is fortunate to have this new addition to the dining choices. It is right on the Main Street, easy to find. The decor is simple and the food expertly done. We went for my birthday and had never eaten sushi before. The sushi and tempura selections were excellent

“would never go back...dirty kitchen. ..yuck!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

In walking past the kitchen area, the kitchen was a complete mess. Food out everywhere. I opted out of eating anything...it was that bad. Dead flower bouqet in a vase of rancid water on the sushi counter..along with a chef hat, apron and some kind of rusty metal box. Disgusting. It also looked like lots of tempura was out on the counter..cooked? Not cooked? Gross.
Rice cooker was out on a guest table, floor was dirty and dirty dishes on lots of tables. We were the only ones in so no reason for the mess.
85 dollars for lunch for two. Crazy.

“sushi for sushi's sake”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

There's no denying the fact that it's nice to see sushi making an appearance north of Barrie. You can see the effort that Momiji staff and management are making - still heaps of room for improvement. The menu is as extensive and unique as it is pricey. The food, when you get what you ordered, is tasty. I hope against hope they are still around in the months and years to come, but I also hope, they stop feeling and acting like a 'work in progress'. People won't keep coming back simply because they are only sushi restaurant in Huntsville. Folks are used to driving long distances, which makes Wabora just down the road.
