“Good Japanese food in downtown East Lansing”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

My husband likes very much sushi, and after trying different places that offer Japanese cuisine, this seems to be the better so far. I make company wit hot dishes that are good as well.
The place is small and the chairs are not very comfortable. It gets very crowded when MSU is in session, we come here in the summer months. We don't enjoy the atmosphere/ambiance, but the food is good enough to come here when someone craves sushi.

“Omi...O.M.G!!! They have Shabu Shabu on the menu!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

They have Shabu Shabu on the menu!!!


My wife and I LOVE Shabu Shabu (hotpot) and It's very hard to find in Michigan.

This time we didn't order it (hot soup and 80+degree weather don't mix well). Ok, so I did have Udon noodles so call me a hypocrite... but the combo dinner #2 was a really good bargain for $12 which included a large bowl of Udon noodles with fried soy curd (tofu) and fish balls, and a California Roll. I let my noodles cool down while enjoying the sushi roll first.

The sushi at Omi is good, but nothing really special.



The interior design is pretty cool. The tables are arranged along a laminated bench seat that is built into the wall and then the curved upper portion of the seating wall becomes part of the ceiling. Look at the menu cover to see architectural details of this design.

The prices are reasonable at Omi. I'd return to this place... and in the colder months I will definitely visit for the Shabu Shabu.


At the larger table next to us there were six Asian people having the Shabu Shabu dinner. It really looked good (see the photo).

“Best Sushi in E.Lansing”

It's the best sushi in E. Lansing. There are options here that I didn't know existed. Can't go wrong here. The ambiance is fresh and the food is tasty.
