Sushi in Lower Michigan

maxdog20 Apr 14, 2008 03:55 PM

I am from East Lansing where we have SanSu as a great sushi place. But coming up in May, me and my friends have a senior prom where we are looking to go anywhere from Grand Rapids, Novi, Ann Arbor, or Detroit.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to where we can find the "best" sushi possible?
Cost isn't really a concern.

      Noble Fish is great but has very little seating, has limited hours, and is not really suitable for a prom-type event. I'm still waiting for a real knockout sushi place in SE Michigan, but for your purposes I think you would enjoy Cherry Blossom, on Novi Rd. north of I-96 in Novi. They can handle large groups, they have excellent sushi, and you can try out other kinds of Japanese food like yakitori (skewer dishes).

      Has anyone been to Musashi in Southfield? I've never tried it, but some people speak highly of that place.

          In Ann Arbor you could also try Yotsuba near the Washtenaw exit off U.S. 23. Pricey, but very sharp place with good sushi--good destination place. People disagree about sushi, but most people in Washtenaw put it at the top of their lists.

          Another place that gets good reviews is Akasaka in Livonia, but I haven't been there, either.

            I can tell you first hand the sushi at mon jin lau is excellent. The dining room is very nice. It's Hour magazines restaurant of the year and there was a great article about the restaurant in this months issue.

              had dinner at mon jin lau three weeks ago. we took our kids and had a great time. sushi and rolls were very good. sizzling rice soup. chile pepper squid was great and a big hit with my 9 year old daughter. bali maki. sweet and sour chicken. a very good meal.
