dreamstime_xxl_21864371When you have friends or family visiting you from out of town, you want to plan exciting things to do while they’re here. Minneapolis has a lot to do and see, as well as amazing restaurants with cuisine that perhaps your guest have never tried. At Moto-i, we love meeting new people and seeing their reactions as they try authentic Japanese cuisine for the first time. Going out to eat should always be an enjoyable experience, not to mention it saves you from having to cook another meal at home!

Something for Everyone

We understand that some people might be hesitant to try a dish they’ve never had before, but we promise that we have something for everyone at our restaurant. Our servers will gladly explain the ingredients and flavors of anything on the menu, and answer any questions that you or your friends may have. One member of your party might be in the mood for a beet salad, while another has a hankering for yakisoba noodles, and we can provide both, plus much more! We’re known throughout the city for our traditional ramen dishes, and we know that everyone at your table will see a choice that tickles their taste buds.

If you’re entertaining out-of-town guests for a few days, bring them to Moto-i. We love being the first Japanese restaurant a person has been to, and we promise that we will do everything we can to make the experience a memorable one. You can order starters, entrees, and desserts from our extensive menu, as well as our sake, which is brewed on-site! We look forward to seeing you and your guests very soon.
