Success! Thanks for posting your review of Midori's Floating World Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

Friendly staff, good sushi, and a nice clean atmosphere

I am not an avid fan of sushi, but I have been enjoying trying the many variations of sushi offered in this small, cosy restaurant. The presentations are beautiful and I personally really enjoy the mushroom broth and rich, luscious teas that are offered. I have never had a bad experience there and I enjoy watching the preparer create the intricate and delicate presentations. I have not been there at a really busy ... view more

Pay the babysitter extra...

Get ready for a long wait, and if you got a babysitter for the evening, be prepared to pay for a couple extra hours. The food is decent, but takes forever! We put in an order for a couple sushi rolls (the cafe was almost empty at this point) it took over 45 minutes for them to arrive. We ordered a mojito from their drink menu (great drink by the way) and it took 40 minutes for them to bring it.. All in all,... view more

LONG wait, for so-so food.

The food is ok, but everytime the wait after ordering food is between 45-60 minutes. If you don't mind waiting order their interesting tea, and edamame and be sure to be prepared to wait...Not a good place to go if you're hungry. Like the previous poster, I would recommend Origami or Kikugawa for sushi. Tanpopo is good for hot noodle soups.

Terrible customer service

We have eaten at Midori's a number of times in the past, and have enjoyed the food. The customer service has always been lacking, but this last time was deplorable! We arrived at 5:30 for dinner. There were 2 empty tables which we were told were reserved, and that the wait would be 45 minutes. We walked around the neighborhood, and returned about 40 minutes later to find that the tables were still unoccupied. An... view more

Great local sushi place

Living within a few blocks of Floating World, I started going to it as a relative newcomer to the delights of sushi. I have become hooked on both the food and this restaurant. True, I miss the sushi chef they used to have, but Midori does a great job preparing the fish, and it is always fresh and tasty. I like to sit at the bar and watch her work. They always have specials, but I usually go with some kind of combina... view more

I am back after 8 years in Japan to experience: The Best Tempura and excellent sushi.

I have only been home for a couple weeks after living in Japan for 8 years. I was excited to see that there was a Japanese restaurant within walking distance of my house. It is nicely decorated with easy parking. I ate lunch today, the tempura and sushi combination. Both were excellent. The tempura is the best I have had in the States. Light and not at all greasy. The side vegetables, pickles and salad we... view more

Nice little sushi place close to home

I'm happy that a friend took me here about a year ago. They serve good sushi and they are really nice.

A real disappointment

We have eaten at Midori's for the third and last time. Although we now live in the suburbs, we really like coming into the city to eat at some of the great smaller, non-chain places. That being said, our last experience at Midori's (with another couple) was so bad is was almost laughable. Our sushi was okay, but our entrees were all cold and one - the curry - was a disgusting gelatinous mess of brown goo. The pri... view more

It is with regret that I downgrade this once favorite spot

This used to be a great place. Since they no longer have a sushi chef and apparently hire unqualified staff, it has declined. In an almost empty room we waited 45 minutes for a lunch order. The tempura is good, the sushi is OK, but it isn't the wow spot it used to be. Now you feel a little ripped off instead of feeling that you had your money's worth. Sorry, midori.

Minimalist decor with delicious dishes. Professional, hospitable, and quick service. Nostalgic memories of Japan returned to me while dining here. A wonderful addition to the Minneapolis Japanese culinary scene.
