This place has been around a long time and if anything I think they are better now. It is a much more traditional set up inside, small but high quality food. Prices are comparable, service is fine. It reminds me a lot of authentic Japan which makes it a very nice experience inside. This is our new go to spot... More

I went here with my boyfriend and we ordered a few dishes. It was such great value for the amount of food we got and everything tasted great!

I love sushi. Midori was recommended by the staff at Hotel Blackfoot and I was incredibly pleased. The service was excellent and the sushi was incredible.

Service was crazy slow and there were only 4 tables seated with nobody at the bar. My wife found her Agadashi Tofu to have a synthetic/chemical aftertaste (??). My Inari tofu was a single tofu wrapper cut in HALF and they charged me for TWO!!?!? And lastly, they use cheap disposable chopsticks for dinning-in. Weird!?! Please buy some washable chopsticks...

We order suishi and some sashimi. My boyfriend had a lot of sashimi because he was really hungry. I noticed the fish is not very fresh. He got food position after all.

Whenever I crave for sushi, tempura, or takoyaki, this is the first place that will came into my mind. I also love their homemade green tea ice cream. The employees are friendly and are always smiling. Their prices are also reasonable for their servings.

When I had more reason to be in this part of town we used to come here quite often and I remember the quality of the sushi to be higher than average. Not this time. I was disappointed with the not-so-fresh fish and soggy rice. The Rocky Mountain roll which used to be one of my favourites came with barely... More

The Tempura was great but it was all downhill from there. The Miso soup was cold, The Chicken Teriyaki for $10.95 could easily have passed for a $2.49 microwave meal. Horrible! The sushi was fairm but small portions and some items suspiciously "warm"

Try the bento boxes! I had the Bento Special, the Sushi Bento and the Midori House Special. Fish is fresh, and presentation is very good. The green tea is really good. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant is very small, and it can be crowded sometimes, but its worth it. Waitress gives you lots of time to look at the menu,... More
