I've been going to Origami for 10+ years (previously North Loop location), but will never go back. I used to love it but when we just went the sushi was terrible, it tasted fishy and I couldn't even eat it, so wasted $$. I love sushi and go to all of the sushi spots around Minneapolis and have never in my life been unable to eat sushi. It was so bad. I was super disappointed :(

My boyfriend and I first met here a year ago and have decided to make coming to Origami a romantic tradition. It has lovely options for sushi that aren’t found elsewhere, and the atmosphere is extremely sultry. I’d rate it 100 stars if I could.

We visited yesterday for the first time, celebrating my son's 15th birthday. He wanted to to try someplace new - he loves sushi from our Hudson Wi restaurants and he wanted to try Ramen. We chose Origami based on other great reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our dishes - the soft shell crab appetizer, the Spicy Tuna and Dragon sushi and our noodle bowls. Our server, Tomo Leopard was EXCELLENT. A refined gentleman and very professional- the kind of server you always hope for but rarely are lucky enough to have. He topped off our great meal with a complimentary birthday dessert for my son, a big hit. Thank you! We'll be back!

I love this place so much. I'm picky when it comes to sushi—low tolerance for Cali rolls and avocado stuffed in everything. You can get that here if you want, but the fish is excellent, fresh, and not dressed up if you don't.

I went because my boyfriend loves sushi and it was his birthday. I wanted to take him somewhere special and something that will taste amazing. So I looked up some of the best sushi restaurants in the city and this by far exceeded my exceptions. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. They made sure to answer any questions we had and asked about the the food. They genuinely seemed to care.

We went here for dinner before a show. The service was... weird. The staff seemed almost bummed out, and the service was generally slow. When we were seated, they warned us that "due to how busy" they were, they could only offer us one menu, but would try to get us another if we really needed. We said it was find, but it struck as as odd, since there were several empty tables; the place felt barely half full.

We ordered the edamame, some kind of deep fried fish that I cannot locate on the online menu, and the tonkatsu ramen. The edamame was a small amount, and not very hot. Not cold, just not hot. The deep fried fish was basically a fancy fish stick, and the ramen was underwhelming for the price, especially when compared to someplace like Ramen Kazama. Overall, I was unimpressed by the service, ambiance, and food. With Minneapolis being such a competitive place for food, I would likely not dine here again.

We’re Japanese, food was good, those were the same level we ate in Japan.
Unfortunately, a waiter man attitude was bad and ruined our dinner.
I don’t want to be never served by the man.

We sat up at the bar and had quick service from the bartender right off the bat. We were one of two couples at the bar. After ordering our food, we had to flag down the bartender each time we wished to order another drink, etc. He seemed to be preoccupied chatting with the other couple at the bar. It appeared they were friends. We also had to ask about our appetizer (miso soup), which he appeared to have forgotten so it came out the same time as our dinner. Unfortunately, we will not go back.

A friend recommended this place to me. I did my research of the place. I studied the menu, looked like authentic sushi and was really satisfied with what I was looking at. So I decided to check it out. It happend to be me and my Girlfriend 1 Year anniversary. I booked a table. When I got to the place i right away liked the vibe. The decor was fantastic. Every staff member was dressed elegant. They were friendly and they offer a spectacular service. When I sat down they right away served us water. They gaved us the menu. I check it out thoroughly and was really happy with what it had to offer. Most places don't offer Bluefin tuna but Origami Did! And the price for it was fair enough. After we placed our ordered, they gaved us wet towels to wash our hands. I was happy with that gesture. It really gives values to the place. We ended ordering Spicy Tuna rolls, the crunchy rolls, I ordered a spicy miso and my Girlfriend order the nabe yaki udon. And finally I ordered I single Bluefin nigiri. The spicy tuna rolls were amazing! They melted in your mouth and had so many flavor! The crunchy rolls were spectacular! The color and presentation about it was satisfying. The spicy miso and the nabe yaki udon were so delicious and flavorful. The only problem was that they both didn't come with the fish cake and they only had 1 piece of meat. I was so satisfied with the flavor of the soup that i didnt bother complaning because it was so good i didnt want to ruin my experience fpr a little mistake. Overall i reallt love the fokd amd disnt have complaints. It was a little bit busy when we were there so I understand things might slip here and there. I work in a fine dining restaurant. I'm a chef as well so I understand if it was the one time that they forgot. Either way I'm going back to try it again because i really loved it and I'm going to order the same soup. If I don't get the fish cake then I will know something is wrong and this time I will notify the staff. Overall wonderful.

45 minutes between apps and entrees. Explanation was that kitchen got ‘slammed’. Not buying it as tables arriving after us received there meals in a timely manner before ours arrived. What gives?
