I see that many of Sadako's more enthusiastic customers rave about the sushi. As I was more interested in eating a hot meal, I tried the tempura udon. Very good, if only the broth were not so watery. Service performed well, though I do wonder if the place is understaffed. At a time of relatively low business, it seemed like... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Ann Arbor. If you are looking for great sushi rolls and sake at an affordable price, this is the place to go! I have been to other sushi places in Ann Arbor that cost way more, and I left much less satisfied! My wife and I have had almost every... More

They have so many amazing rolls. The prices are reasonable. And you can sit at the bar and watch them make your sushi. I definitely would recommend coming to this place to either eat in or take out but the food is always amazing.

I love the service AND the food at Sadako! Every time I make the trip down South U to Sadako I love it. Of course you get the ginger dressing salad and the miso soup before your meal. Then I order the Salmon Bento; it comes with a small roll, 2 dumplings, tempura veggies and rice, plus a chunk of... More

My rating is based on my memories of this place in college, my sister, who ate here today continues to rave, her favorite: the Sunny Roll. However, as a person who cannot eat gluten for medical reasons this was a horrible meal, from start to a 3 bite finish. First, unlike my local sushi restaurant that has a gluten-free ginger... More

Great sushi at a good price. Sushi is always delicious and fresh. Good variety. At times can be slow to get a table but well worth the wait.

Soup and salad came as a side with the entre The ambience was simple but the food... More
