Ama Sushi Gives Good Momo Vibes

A new down-to-earth dining option in Edina

Craving sushi? Say 👋 to Ama Sushi in Edina, now open at 50th and France.

Minnevangelist’s Andrew Parks wrote up the restaurant in the new issue of Minnesota Monthly, finding in it a kindred spirit to Momo Sushi in Northeast Minneapolis. As far as sushi restaurants go, it’s more affordable and definitely more casual than, say, flashy downtown hot spot Billy Sushi. 

And while Momo fans will find a lot of overlap on Ama Sushi’s expansive menu (that sushi bucket 😳!), co-founding Tibetan brothers Sonam Nyorie and Rinpo Yak have more than a few tricks up their chef sleeves to make the Edina debut a destination in its own right.

Take, for example, the Lungta Roll—made with spicy salon, tuna, yellowtail, avocado, and tobiko and modeled after the colors in Tibetan prayer flags. Also the November Roll (pictured up top), which dresses up a very Minnesotan mound of whitefish with spicy crab, cilantro, and jalapeño.

Other menu highlights include half a dozen poke bowls and a beautifully composed chirashi dish — all welcome additions to Edina’s busiest stretch of small businesses. 🍣
