Tried to go early August and it appeared vacant and shut down. Will miss this place, it's been there forever. Pros: Old Favororite Cons: Seems to be closed down


Maybe the worst decor of any Japanese place I've ever been. I prefer my sushi places to be small, quiet, relaxing like the ones I go to in Tokyo. The experience is as important ...

Sushi does not taste better when it smells like Poo 11/7/2008

One word. Sewage! This place actually smells like Poo and I'm not talking about the Poo Poo platter. Also, the fish is well......fishy! Good sushi isn't fishy. Mori is cheap. This place is trashed. Seats have duct tape holding them together, pretty sure they rip people off with the Saki and pour the cheap stuff in different bottles. more

Best Japanese food in Denver, bar none 9/19/2008

I am so sad to learn that the Mori is no more. It has been my favorite Japanese restaurant for many, many years. I have brought so many friends and family to the Mori and have never been disappointed. I would more

Yep, think it's closed. 8/18/2008

Closed last I went 7/17/2008

I'm bummed my fav place was closed when I went on 7/2/08. Where shall I go now? .......... ............................. more

hooray cheap eats! 6/17/2008

For you sushi snobs out there, don't spoil the cheap-ness of Mori. That's right go somewhere else more upscale and snobby. But for those of you who don't mind dive bars, cheap eats, and fun kareoke, do come here!! I love their sake bombs! I don't even come here for good sushi, but for low key nights or pre-lodo partying. more

Sub par sushi 1/4/2008

This is one of the cheaper sushi places around, and it tasted that way. The seaweed was old and the sushi had that ""store-bought"" taste to it. We had a spicy tuna roll and an eel roll, and we canceled the rest of our order because it was that bad. We ended up with a safe choice (shrimp tempura) just to satisfy our appettite and left. Pros: Prompt seating (no one was there) Cons: Bad sushi!!! more

Below Average Experience 11/2/2007

With sushi bars being a dime a dozen in Denver, it is important to stand out in a unique way. Mori sushi does that, but in an unsuccessful manner. After reading many quality reviews, I decided to try Mori on a Thursday night with hopes that I would catch the tail end of the happy hour crowd. For the first half hour we were two of the five people in the entire establishment. It's nice to not wait for a table, but much of a restaurants atmpsphere is based around the energy that the patrons bring. Also, the housekeeping seemed to be the last thing on the owners mind as the booth where we were sitting was covered in duct tape to patch the holes. more

Good Japanese Food 6/1/2007

I have been told to go to Mori's by my colleages and finally went there today for lunch. Pros: Good food for the price you pay Cons: Ambience more

Locals Know Mori's is top notch 4/22/2007

We go to Mori's constantly at least once a week for lunch, and have for years. The prices are great for lunch, and the food is fresh. What Mori's lack's in decor, it makes up for in great food. more

Proven favorite 11/20/2006

Mori has been around forever and thankfully has stayed. Since the days they shared space with the local VFW hall, Mori has offered fair prices, friendly service and the freshest fish! Cheers Mori!! Pros: Friendly service, parking - downtown!!, great food Cons: None!! more

Fair to middling... no need to go here 3/1/2004

Don't get me wrong - this place isn't horrible. However, a good visual clue (the carpet duct-taped together) kind of clues you in as to the expected quality. The sushi is, again, not terrible. But I have to question why ANYONE would go here given the fact that it is comparable in price to every other decent place. (The only thing I'll say is that it's better than ""Kikkoman Central"", aka Sonoda's.) Although we are dealing with a metro area population that will vote Olive Garden as the ""Best Italian Restaurant"" every year. My opinion: pass on this one unless you happen to live within walking distance. Pros: Close to downtown, Food is decent, OK service Cons: , Not the greatest, Tacky interior more

Tempura, Bleach, and Tekka Maki 12/30/2003

I actually had high expectations of this place because its been around for a long time, and I had some personal acquaintances with people from here, but aside from that I couldn't get over that I really didn't enjoy the food. I can't get myself to go back. I think it DEFINITELY isn't worth the value. Plus, at one point when I was eating the waitress brought out the bussing kart which had a highly overwhelming smell of bleach!! - good one! Pros: intricate menu design Cons: bleach, bleach smell, intoxicating more

Consistently average 5/11/2003

Maybe the worst decor of any Japanese place I've ever been. I prefer my sushi places to be small, quiet, relaxing like the ones I go to in Tokyo. The experience is as important as the food when I eat sushi; I want something that is a refuge from the workaday world. Unfortuantely in Denver the best sushi is at the trendiest places. Mori's is consistently average; the quality if fine though the presentation is a bit pedestrian. It's the Mickey's Top Sirloin of sushi; a value if you're not looking for much. Pros: fresh seafood, prices Cons: preparations pedestri, atmosphere more

Awesome Sushi! 11/25/2002

Mori is not much on atmosphere, but this is the best sushi in Denver. I have eaten at every sushi joint in town and Mori is consistently the best with quality. Not much on service unless you sit at the bar, though. Pros: Quality of food, Parking available, Monday Happy Hour Cons: Atmosphere, Speed of service, Not open Sunday more

Mori is Magnifique! 11/14/2002

If you're looking for a yuppie atmosphere, this is NOT your place. If you're looking for great sushi in the downtown area, this is what you're after! The prices are reasonable, with authentic chefs. What it lacks in plushness, it more than makes up for with it's food. I highly recommend it! Pros: Fantastic food, Great Value Cons: Simple atmosphere more

Ambiance 2, Sushi 10 8/23/2002

The decor of this place is early formica, poorly lit and hard to park. What it lacks in ambiance is more than made up by the food. In a cuisine that takes pride in presentation - this place is the best - and really fresh. Every dish is a delight. I can't wait to go back, sit at the bar - and say ""Feed Me"". more

Great Sushi and Sake Bar 7/23/2002

Mori has been one of my favorite Japanese restaurants for over 10 years. the freshness and quality have always brought me back. It may not be as hip or ""cool"" as Hapa or Sushi Den, but I go for the sushi not the attitude from som server or patron dressed in Praga clothing. The Sake bar at moris is great, over 30 different hot and cold sakes to sample. Give Mori a try you'll be back for sure. Pros: fresh, selection, price Cons: Bathrooms are Old, sometimes a long wait more

Mori's is the best in Denver 7/13/2002

You can find Mori himself behind the Sushi bar on Wednesday nights. He serves fresh sushi beautifully presented. This is a great place to meet and have a great meal, or get sushi to go and take it to the ball game at Coors field. I've been to Mori's over a hundred times and have always had a great time. Thanks Mori! Pros: Friendly Staff, Great Service more

Never a problem with the food 7/5/2002

Mori's has always been one of my favorite sushi places in Denver...Osaka, Japon, and Sushi Den are great too. Occasionally, the service is a bit spotty, but the food is usually top notch. Beef teriyaki is always cooked to order and the tuna sashimi is forever velvety and fresh. more
