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.

Have ben going to Origami for years and the uptown location has never lived up to the original.
The food was fine but not outstanding, the Sushi chefs competent but not great. Still a good place to go but don't expect too much.

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.

Love love love Origami. They have the freshest fish in the whole city. We sit at the sushi bar and the sushi chefs are all great. This is the one place we go where we eat almost exclusively raw fish because we don't trust the raw fish at other places. But, their cooked rolls are delicious too.
You also get a little noodle appetizer and pineapple with passionfruit sauce at the end (and 2 Pocky sticks!).

We came here to celebrate a birthday party and all of us (6) had a great time. We had made a reservation and were seated right away, although it wasn't too busy for 7 pm on a Friday. Our server comp'd the birthday guest with a free drink! The staff was very attentive and timely. The sushi and noodles were both amazing, appetizers were delicious as well. We had the wontons, short ribs, and pork gyoza all pretty good, albeit a bit expensive. The nigiri and sashimi were all served room temperature, but I didn't mind considering the wonderful texture and light flavor of each fish. For maki we had the Philly X (surprisingly good for a fried roll), Black Widow, TNT, Feisty Philly, and the California roll. TNT was definitely the best and pretty spicy. Highly recommend for it's atmosphere, the staff, and the food! This would be a great place for a business dinner as it's pretty quiet and has an upscale ambience.

Took an out o town friend out for dinner. The waitress was the exact type of server I would want. Didn't engage in an actual conversation, prompt on the refills, and a good balance of frequency for checking up on us. We stayed for 2 and a half hours and never felt pressure to leave.

Requested for patio seating. While the seats and table were okay, the atmosphere outdoors was not that inviting. It's not the restaurant's fault though since they are situated right by the entrance of a parking ramp.

Cameron, our server, was attentive, and did update us on how busy the evening was, and notified us that if we already had orders in mind to order the apps, entrées and drinks all at once. Drinks were treat and a good pour. The food (sushi, teriyaki chicken, salad, gyoza and takoyaki) was tasty but not anything one can't get at several other Japanese restaurant. I think the sushi is more pricey than what they are. I'd still return and try other menu items to see if any other dishes would be more exciting.
