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?

The food was great---one of the better places for Sushi in Minneapolis. Service could be improved. For example, we had to wait for almost half an hour for a table against a reservation that we had confirmed before heading to the restaurant. There was not expression of remorse for this either, it was presented to us more or less as a "take it or leave it" situation.

Our party of four loved the food and service and would recommend the restaurant. The one thing we noticed, which reduced my 5-star rating to a 4-star rating, was that the gigantic TV above the bar, facing many tables, was a very annoying distraction and seemed out of place in this setting. We asked to be moved out of sight of this monster distraction and luckily, as we were early, were accommodated.

We had an amazing time. The sushi was fresh, vibrant, and beautifully plated. Our server was attentive even though it was busy, and he times our meal well while covering other tables. Other items we all shared were delicious and of a good portion size. We brought family from out of town here and we are so glad we did. We will definitely return.

Fantastic visit. Tuna toro and salmon toro were buttery deliciousness. They were out of the spicy clams, so gave us a free octopus salad instead and it was very tasty. They also gave us one other spicy "mistake" app free or charge. Combined with happy hour pricing, we had a wonderful meal for an exceptional value.

The food as usual was delicious. It was 2 adults and 3 kids--2 of whom really like sushi. My son's favorite restaurant is Origami but we usually sit at the sushi bar since it's usually just 2 of us. And now we know why. Our original order took 30 minutes to come out (okay, it's sushi and it takes time). But, we put in a 2nd order for 2 rolls and 40 minutes later nothing. We ended up cancelling the order as the kids at that point were no longer hungry and tired. So, I guess be prepared to wait a long time at peak meal time (Saturday 6-8pm) or go earlier and sit at the sushi bar.

Went for a birthday celebration dinner specifically to try the Fugu, advertised on their website, but upon arrival we were told that there was none available until 4 days later. If going there for a specific type of fish, I advise calling ahead to ask because they do not update their site.

Origami is the best sushi restaurant in Mpls for the quality and value. Their happy hour is very good (and all day Sundays) and they also have amazing ramen. We go regularly and have never been disappointed in the least.
