Japanese
Kado no Mise serves Japanese fare that is simple and delicate - true to the tastes and form that Chef Furukawa learned when he first started cooking professionally in his hometown of Tokyo, Japan. Every meal, including our nigiri, sashimi, and maki, is carefully hand-crafted from a select choice of fresh, local and Japanese ingredients in the true Edomae style. No derivatives. No extrapolation. Kado no Mise, which translates to “Corner Restaurant,” located at 33 North First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN - Main Floor.

The sushi was incredible. The service was not good. Inattentive waitresses who had zero knowledge about the types of fish I hadn’t encountered in nigiri before (which is likely to be the same for many diners thanks to their very unique list of available sushi, and all they could tell me was what color the fish was), cold tea (came to the table at room temp, and had my cup taken before asking for a refill), and overcooked salmon for my fiancé (but overall the food was exceptional, despite this).

Upstairs, by contrast, they are remarkably knowledgeable. That’s why I was surprised that the staff in Kado no Mise were so inattentive and lacking in basic information. In the future, I will sit at the bar and order omakase, instead of getting a table. I’m confident that’ll be a more pleasing experience, especially for the cost.

A one of a kind brunch in the twin cities, the Japanese-inspired takes on weekend comfort food were fab! We enjoyed the donburi and the okonomiyaki with some melt-in-your-mouth wagyu! Great service too. A very quiet Saturday, there were only a handful of other diners in at noon.

Kado No Mise was some of the best sushi I have had in Minneapolis. We went for our anniversary and they treated us to some Cava which was delicious. The Sake that we indulged in was also very very good. However, everything we had was just to die for. The octopus sashimi was the best I have ever had and the tiger prawns were amazing. The only slightly negative part was the oysters we ordered were a bit small. That is being picky.

The only other caveat is that this place is not cheap. If you want to experience it, be prepared to spend some money. For us, it was worth it!

Food was high quality, but the table next to us was so loud that we couldn't settle into our romantic dinner. There wasn't as good of a description of the specials as there could be. But the staff were highly competent and responsive. If you are a big sushi fan, this place is for you. If you like grilled fish, not so much. Our yellowtail collar was raw near the bone.

We had a 5-person business dinner. The service was great and the waiter did excelent job describing what the menu items were and how we could manage through both sharing some dishes and getting individual dishes. They have offerings I have not found elsewhere in the twin cities, so it makes a great place for a special and unique dining evening.

I was disappointed to find the sushi here was very very simple. I understand purists in food but this is Minneapolis not NYC and I want to dunk my nigiri is soy sauce... at least have the option of wasabi. The place smelled of fish and I walked away feeling unsatisfied, nothing had much flavor, and for 100$ per person I won’t be back.

Delicious! The staff and head chef were super friendly and my server had excellent sake suggestions. Go for the omekase if you can splurge a bit, the chef’s selections are always the best. I travel and eat sushi every week all over the world and the simplicity of venue and presentation, as well as excellence of fish quality puts this restaurant easily in my top ten sushi places. Highly recommend!

Been wanting to come here for quite some time after Origami closed it's downtown location. The space looks great and the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. Overall, the food was certainly authentic and pure, but a bit under-flavored. The shiso-wrapped crispy tiger prawn was the best textured shrimp I've ever had, but I wasn't impressed by the kamo rosu (duck lettuce wraps). Same with the chasoba. I've had better soba and ramen at the old Obento-Ya. The highlight for sure was the shiso sorbet. I would eat a gallon of that. Also, would DEFINITELY recommend going upstairs to Gori Gori Peku, the Japanese whiskey bar on the second floor. The mixed drinks are insanely good and run about the same as anywhere else ($9), and their Japanese whisky collection is unmatched in the cities, probably even the Midwest. Great place to take someone to impress them if they love whisky.

We visited Kado no Mise for our anniversary, and had a great experience. The staff were extremely personable and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The sushi chef was very skilled and the food was fantastic. They even gave us free sparkling wine for our anniversary, which was an unexpected treat. We'll certainly be back.

Unparalleled fish quality in Minnesota. If you love sushi for amazing and unique fish - this is the place for you. If however you are looking for sushi rolls where the "chef" packs in every fish imaginable and dumps a bunch of sauce on it - I'd skip this spot. Their soys sauce with a mini brush is a bit pretentious.

Our 3rd visit was the best yet. The bar upstairs has a great feel with soft lighting, craft cocktails (The best whiskey sour on the planet) and a variety of high-end authentic Japanese Sak's and Whiskies.

Because they are craft cocktails, you have to be patient to get your drink, but the bartender will be happy to explain any and everything about your drink and how it's made and where it comes from and what makes it special. Very pricey, but worth it if you have the funds.

The dining room downstairs has more of a diner feel with a great sushi menu. The service is wonderful and we were graced with Natasha's full. attention all night. Seafood is very fresh and well presented. Worth a visit, but expect $150+ per person.

We had the omakase (chef's choice) and had a great selection of small plates (generally individual pieces of nigiri) presented over about ninety minutes. The service was attentive and spot-on as well. They even got the ambiance right for my taste, with music audible but not loud, allowing for easy conversation.

Kado no Mise is a standby for a special evening of beautifully curated ingredients. The space is modern and light, and we sit at the counter so we can watch the chefs do their work. The drinks menu is wonderful with a great selection of cocktails, whiskey, and sake. The menu changes frequently so it never gets boring, and is seasonally appropriate. Care is taken with every aspect of the dining experience.

I’m giving this place an overall 4 star review ( not a five star ) for one reason and one reason only. The price and value. As a local Chef and experienced “Japanese food eater”, I can easily say that this was one of the best meals I’ve had in the past year. The food, ambience, service, and particularly the quality of ingredients, were absolutely exceptional. However, and this is a big however, my wife and I both had two drinks equaling $40 and we left the restaurant with a total tab after tax and tip at $250 (20%tip). No joke, we then immediately went to Butcher and the Boar to eat something actually filling. We eat out all the time. Like, all the time. Never done this before. We were both still really hungry after spending $250 on dinner. If they doubled the portion size, it still would not be enough. Is what it is.
