This place is disgusting. A cockroach fell from the ceiling right in front of one of the restaurant I just ordered food from. I am confused by the good reviews. I went with about four other people. Not one person liked the food. Trust me, it sounds like a cool place, but it is gross.

It hurts me to write this review because I had been looking forward to a Saturday exploring the Mitsuwa Marketplace for months. After all the build up, it still bothers me that I left feeling so disappointed. The store is not very clean and is very run down. If this were a regular grocery chain, I would never shop there....

I'm part Japanese so my family and I have been going here for years (even back when it was called Yaohan). I love doing my shopping there. They have Japanese groceries and appliances there. You can also buy Japanese liquor there. There's a Japanese bookstore, porcelain shop, travel agency, sushi station, cafe, and bakery there as well! There's also a... More

Although the cafeteria is CASH ONLY, I highly recommend this Japanese grocery store. Ikura, nameko, ramen, oshinko, meiji chocolate are among the top buys in this store (on a personal reference level). They even have a cute bakery with japanese baked bread and cakes! Cakes range around $3 per slice, but they have very good portions. I would recommend the... More

The greater Chicago-area's growing Asian community and those others who appreciate the culinary offerings consistent with traditional Asian cusine need look no further than to the Mistsua Marketplace for a plethora of fresh, frozen, canned and otherwise packaged food-stuffs, as well as huosehold items on offer. The food-court at Mitsuwa has a variety of offerings presenting the diner with an... More

Had ramen on my way down south through Chicago - it was very quick and super delicious. Amazing variety - lots of little eateries and shops. I wish I could do my grocery shopping there as well.

If you are a fan of Korean, Japanese, and "Asian" food in general, you NEED to go here. A marketplace w/ a food court from heaven... ;)

I have been going to this location for Japanese prepared foods and groceries since the 90's. It is the best value for the food that you get! I will be back.

We have Asian stores in St. Louis, but nothing like this. We try to come up at least 1-2 times a year. Love the food court in the store. Everyone can get something they like. Excellent fresh sushi and bento boxes. It is a must try.
