The sushi and overall food items were very good, as usual. I was disappointed that there wasn't and chu toro or uni, but found several other favorites. Origami is doing a very good job on distancing, mask wearing and disinfecting. There were smart new bar tables and new plexiglass at the bar. The only disappointment is that my Ichitini wasn't up to its usual very good standard. I really miss the former bartender, Junior - he made the best Ichitini. Now the cucumber is like a 10 year old chopped it, unlike the former seaweed like ribbons. Unfortunately it was undrinkable as it just tasted like pure vodka and I had to send it back to get fixed, I explained that I couldn't taste the sake at all, all I tasted was the sharpness of the vodka, and I had originally ordered my brands for the drink: Tito's vodka and kariho sake. It came back and tasted exactly the same. I've been drinking this martini for 20+ years and have never had this issue in the past. I think the bartender doesn't have the ratio right. I was really disappointed as this is a big part of the experience. :(

Service and food are always wonderful here. The rolls are delicious, and the best we have had in the twin cities. Highly recommend the lava roll.

Excellent sushi and great service. Dined inside and felt safe. They had solid screens between the tables and their menus are your phones, so their safety protocol is good.

Origami is my favorite sushi restaurant in the city. I have been going there for decades (they at one time had locations at Ridgedale Mall and Downtown). My absolute favorite roll is the lava roll. Love the wait staff too.

Happy hour is good, but main food/entrees were underwhelming at best (like how the ramen had a cold and very fatty pork belly placed in it, making the overall temp of the ramen lukewarm— ramen should be served HOT). Everything is overpriced for what you’re getting, which is why I’ll only ever go there again for their happy hour specials. Disappointing since we used to enjoy going there as a family, but the food overall is just too pricey now to justify.

My wife and I were excited to go to Origami for Valentine's Day. The hostess was nice and seated us quickly upstairs. Our waitress was pleasant but was pushy and did not give us much time to try to select our drinks. We asked her to come back after we had a few mins. The carpet upstairs is dirty and needs to be cleaned. Our waitress did not know the specialty drinks for V's day because she "did not drink", which is fine, but she should still know the menu and the drink specials. We ordered one specialty item that was good and a sushi platter. Our waitress forgot the salad and soup that came with the platter, we had to ask for it twice. When the salad and soup came it was 1 salad and 1 soup for two of us. This made no sense at all. The sushi platter was not fresh and the sushi was bland. We could not wait to get out of Origami but then could not get our waitress to come back with our check. We paid and walked to Chino for a drink and really enjoyed ourselves. Next time we will simply go to Fujiya or Chino. Bad service, bad food and extremely overpriced.

We have a favorite sushi restaurant that we frequent back home. Wanted to try from a new restaurant while in town for traveling.
The wait staff was very very helpful and friendly. Offered suggestions and explanations very politely. Was a bit dark and menus were hard to read but overall the artwork and music was very nice and the meal was very cost friendly and delicious.
Would recommend. The restaurant is located to a very cool outdoor art park. Beautiful.
We enjoyed ourselves but again, the service was gave it all the stars.

The food was very good and we were also very impressed with the service at Origami. We shared an octopus appetizer and my husband enjoyed his sushi and I had a rice bowl with beef. If you're willing to go to Uptown (traffic was horrendous) this is a great place to have dinner!

Before heading to origami, we called to confirm availability of fugu. We were told its available.
When we got there, they only have half serving (7 slices)

Not to mention, they do not have fresh wasabi, green onion toro, and 2 other sashimi we wanted to order. Sigh....

Another issue :the server handled fugu fin with his bare hand and dunked it into the hot sake.

While we eat, the server didnt check in even once...

Yakisoba was also dry and tasteless. Disappointing visit.

It was the greatest meal of all time. Origami is my favorite restaurant and was the perfect place to celebrate my 21st birthday at. We came early so it was nice and quiet, service was outstanding and the food was what they serve god in heaven. Everything was perfect, and my Martini was beyond perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant, there is no rival.
