The ramen is amazing, some of the best in the nation!

Food is just adequate, not bad but not remarkable; but the sake flight is amazing, and so fun to learn about all the different kinds of sake, and what distinguishes them, and taste the different (each delicious) flavors.

I found out I really don't like sake, no matter who makes it!

We had a wonderful time. I did wish we could have been on the rooftop though. The food was great and the sake was fun. I liked that we could try such a variety with the flights.

I really think Moto-i is great. It's a shame that they aren't busier.

Love the chalk board info on the sake...wish more of that information was on the menu given that the chalkboard is had to read from many of the booths.

Thank you so much for another groupon. We love it all from the pickles up but I do hope you can get a better bun for the bulgogi slider. It didn't ruin it but it was out of place with the level of the bulgogi and the other dishes.

We waited a while for someone to seat us, but other than that the food, drink, service and environment were great.

From Our Editors

moto-i gives diners an authentic Japanese culinary experience without requiring that they leave uptown Minneapolis. Unpasteurized draft sake is brewed inside the izakaya-influenced bar and restaurant; onsite production keeps this staple libation fresh and free of jet lag. Executive chef Omar forges Asian-fusion dishes that meld flavors such as whole fish served with handmade pickles and abura ramen peppered with smoked pork shoulder. Instead of airing football games and soccer matches, the restaurant’s TVs run live and pre-recorded sumo wrestling bouts simulcast from Japan, proving to diners that sports aren’t required by international law to include a ball.
