Their bento box is inexpensive compared to the other sushi places in the area. I like coming here because I order 5 minutes before my lunch break, I come to pick it up and it's already ready! Very quick always.

I got a groupon for this restaurant and 3 other restaurants. This was the third groupon of the 4 I bought, and I had zero issues with the others. I am a fan of sushi and am always up for something new. Me and a friend went here with the intention of spending $10 each, because the groupon was for $25 but we needed to spend $37.50. So we went and ordered 4 rolls of sushi, 3 shrimp tempura, a "salad with special dressing", and a side of sushi rice. The total for those items was around $40. The waitress came to us 3 times and asked what our order was. Once our food arrived, I was disappointed with how loose the rolls were made, not what I would expect from a place that specializes in making sushi. But I ate what was set in front of me. The taste of the food was fine, and the only reason I would give this place 1 star. Next came time to pay the bill, and I handed the Spanish speaking waitress my groupon for $25. 5 minutes later she comes back and says that they don't accept this coupon because they have not been getting paid from groupon. Somehow this is my problem??? Seriously? So I tell her that my friend and I only came with enough money to cover the meal with the coupon, and she stares at me blankly. Filled with rage and anger, I hand her my credit card and tell her to take care of it. 10 minutes pass and I still don't have my card back. Then the sushi chef comes up to me and asks what we ordered!! So for the 4th time I tell them my order. The waitress returns and says she took $10 off for the inconvenience. I look at the receipt and they charged us for 2 sides of sushi rice!? So we left, never to return. And on our way out, I checked and there were no signs or anything posted saying they don't take groupons. One of the single most terrible dining experiences in my life. Please, do yourself a favor and avoid this place. Not worth $1, let alone $40 plus.

Fourth time here, best experience yet. Raoul (sp) is a recent hire as a sushi chef, and wow did they make a find! We ordered one murasake roll, then ordered two "chefs choice"--letting Raoul make whatever he wanted for us. He created an amazing pair of rolls, and one included some fried soft shell crab--fantastic if you've never had it. Not sure why the previous reviewer wrote such a bad review, but the service was great, the sushi was better, overall a great experience. Raoul was only hired about six weeks ago, so maybe he should give them another try?

Murasaki is easily one of, if not the best Japanese in the Twin Cities area. Carefully prepared and delicious sushi, tasty bento boxes, and all-around excellent food. Probably the most authentic Japanese menu in the Twin Cities area. A little dark and the dining room is a little small, but it fits perfectly with the cozy, comfortable ambiance. Highly recommended!!!

My family has been going to Murasaki for the past year and it is a great spot to get authentic, delicious sushi among many other great items from the menu. The Weyer family gives them 5 stars!!

We were cautious about eating sushi at a restaurant in a strip mall, but we had heard great things from our friends. When we arrived, it took a couple of minutes before we were greeted. After we were seated, we ordered our food. I had the Murasaki roll, and my wife had a bento box. I've only been eating sushi for a few years, but the Murasaki roll really surprised me. It was one of the best sushi rolls I've had outside of the higher-end sushi restaurants in MN. Definitely worth a try if you like sushi!

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday because the other resturant we wanted to go to wasnt open for labor day. Was Pleasently suprised. Not the best looking resturant but food quality was fantastic. Everything tasted fresh and clean and wait staff was very good too.

One of the best places to get sushi in Minnesota. Their sushi is fresh ALL the time! Murasaki has the best service too, lovely owners and great staff. When you come visit, sit at the sushi bar. Ross has always been our sushi chef, always entertaining and he makes great sushi. Definitely pay a visit here, you won't regret it.
