Description and review of Midtown Sushi, a Japanese restaurant serving up California-style sushi in Midtown Sacramento.
Midtown Sushi has been on my list of restaurants to try for a while, so when I saw that they had joined the list of restaurants participating in the 2021 Dine Downtown at the last minute I decided now was as good a time as ever.

Midtown Sushi Review
Ordering on-line was very easy – I clicked on the Dine Downtown menu and was presented with the choices for the three courses. At the same time, I chose the time I wanted to pick-up my meal.
My choices for dinner that evening:
- Sweet & Sour Mushrooms (Fried oyster mushrooms tossed in house-made sweet and sour sauce and garnished with green onions)
- M-N-M (Tempura shrimp and spicy tuna with avocado, unagi, masago & sweet and spicy sauce)
- Chicken Teriyaki (served with a side of rice)
When I arrived, a sign outside the front door instructed those picking up takeout to remain there. I thought that was very smart, as COVID-19 cases are surging after the recent holidays. I recall well how small the interior of the restaurant, previously Lou’s Sushi, is.

Note: When you are ordering the Midtown Sushi website also offers an option to have your order delivered to your car.
It did not take long before I was noticed, and staff came to the door. My order was ready, and was bagged up in short order.
Once home, I plated each of the three courses noting that there was plenty to serve two. As a result, I was looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch the next day.
The Sweet & Sour Mushrooms surprised me as they packed a bit of a kick (as in spicy hot). It was not so hot that it interfered with my enjoyment. However, I was thankful for the white rice that came with the Teriyaki Chicken as that helped tone the heat down.
The M-N-M roll was very tasty. It was, as you can see from the accompanying photo, also a visual treat. While the description of the sauce used in the dish was “sweet and spicy” I did not find it spicy hot.
And last, but not least, the Teriyaki Chicken was tender and infused with the flavorful Teriyaki sauce.
To sum up, I enjoyed each of the three courses and will definitely return to Midtown Sushi to try some of their other offerings.
