Origami's sushi chef is an artful Japanese designer of the best sushi I have had in the Corpus Christi area. He has a wonderful selection of traditional sushi and seasonal items. You must try this chefs sushi by sitting at the sushi bar and have a conversation with a true chef.

Server was outstanding, the food was ok, ordered shrimp tempura which was average and a rice bowl with chicken and egg which was slightly above average as far as taste, nothing special on presentation.

The rough part of this experience was the smell of smoke and dingy feel of the restaurant.

Price was average but it was hard to get past the cleanliness.

Certainly not the best sushi I have had, but they displayed their dishes very well. The services were very good.

This is our favorite sushi restaurant in Corpus Christi. It is our go-to place for traditional Japanese sushi and food. Other places we have visited in Corpus Christi have sloppily prepared, no-so-fresh sushi - mainly prepared by chefs who have opened up their own restaurant after only a few years of training.

The owners Taka (sushi chef) and his wife A.T. are Japanese and Taka is a sushi chef trained in Japan. For those of you who don't know about authentic Japanese sushi chefs, training takes ten (10) years as an apprentice. Why? Because not only are they trained in cutting and preparing, but also distinguishing top of the line fresh fish from so-so fresh fish. Taka's knowledge about the various tastes of the same fish (salmon - was it from the Atlantic or pacific? Norway or Alaska?) is amazing. If you are looking for American, high-calorie laden-mayo topped sushi, don't come here. Origami serves some fusion style rolls, but the highlight of this place is the fresh, well prepared authentic sushi and sashimi. I'm part Japanese and have eaten sushi all over the U.S. and the world, including Japan. This is authentic. This is the original sushi restaurant in Corpus since 1990 with the same owners. Highly recommended for the food! Prices are VERY reasonable!

I ate the tareyaki steak and fried shrimp. Steak a bit tough but tasty, shrimp and fried veggies good. Portions a little small for the money. The have a big sushi menu, but i dont eat sushi. Salad dressing and soup very tasty.
