I went for dinner at Origami with a few friends, and we had a great experience. The service was fast and friendly, and the restaurant was set up well to accommodate groups. I got beef yakisoba that was very filling for a low price.

This is the best sushi place by far. The owner, Mitsuko, is from Japan and knows her fish. She makes sure the fish is fresh and nothing goes out from the kitchen unless it's perfect. You won't go wrong if you choose to eat here.

Good Japanese good, although service was a bit slow, but it was a very busy Saturday night, so it's understandable. My soup arrived after the noodles..... Kinda awkward, but ok.... I was so hungry that the order of dishes didn't bother me too much.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
