Sushi Tango

12 Mar

On Valentine’s Eve, Lauren and I went to Sushi Tango in Calhoun Square for dinner, using a gift card we received for a wedding present from the Berglund-Husebys.  I apologize right now—that was almost a month ago and I don’t remember any of the things we ordered except for the gyoza appetizer and one of the sushi entrees called the Kuma.

All I can tell you is that it was another awesome sushi place in Minneapolis, yet I still can’t easily differentiate between this sushi restaurant and any of the others.  They’re all relatively pricey but really good and I’d have to start narrowing it down to the ambiance of the restaurant itself if I were to rank the local places we’ve been, which I may do soon.

For what it’s worth, Sushi Tango put us at a high-top table for dinner right next to the crowd of people waiting for seats which took away from the mood a little.  The food also took over a half hour to arrive.  But in the end, once that food arrived, it was worth the wait.  And we didn’t really think ahead that a Saturday night the day before Valentine’s Day might be busy, so really we were lucky to get a table at all!

Lauren and I split these different entrees.

I think Sushi Tango deserves high marks despite the crowd and the long wait for the food to arrive.  3.8/5 Noms.


I agree with most of what Ryan wrote – Sushi Tango has a very nice new space, but they more or less ruined the atmosphere by putting the two of us at a high-top table with four seats. Our food took a very long time to arrive, and while it was delicious, we were sitting in the bar area getting glared at by all the other couples. I am sure they were all wondering why a table of two was seated at a four-top when the staff could have split up the tables and seated another couple. But as best I could, I tried to shrug off the daggers being glared my way and enjoy a lovely little Valentine’s Day.

4 Noms for food, 2.5 for the staff/seating = 3.25/5!
