The Turtle Has Resurfaced

The Slurping Turtle restaurant has reopened after a long renovation at 608 East Liberty Street, in Ann Arbor, blending the culture and culinary experiences of Japan with the spirited personalities of the chefs in their kitchen. Opening in 2014, Slurping Turtle has taken traditional Japanese ramen and sushi dishes and through unique ingredients, recipes and presentation, added their own twist. The turtle symbolizes longevity and good luck in Japanese culture.

            Award-winning chef and owner Takashi Yagihashi says, “We can’t wait to get back to providing you all with high-quality hospitality, meaningful experiences and beautiful food. Thank you for your support and patience during this time. We look forward to seeing you!”

            Although Slurping Turtle currently has reduced hours, the restaurant will gradually move toward increasing its hours. Some dishes may be restored to the menu as prices go down and supply lines stabilize.
