The sushi options were awesome, incredible rolls and prices were very good. Service was quick and we enjoyed dining at the small outdoor patio. Definitely recommend.

The space is small and has a unique decorating to it but the sushi is excellent. Service is very helpful and attentive. Sushi is fresh and creative offering items across the spectrum. Great spot for lunch and only a block of Michigan Ave.

We were looking for japanese food and we choose this one. Great experience. Not so familiarizated with some recipes of the menu but well advised by the service. We tasted some "not tipical" maki roll for us and where delicious! I dont live there but I would go there if I had it in my city!!

My boyfriend and I were in from out of town and looking on Open Table for places near our hotel that had open tables on Saturday night. We stumbled across Friends Sushi and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised! It is a small place but has an option for outdoor seating. The staff was very friendly, and the... More

Happened upon this place after reading some yelp reviews of restaurants in the area. Everyone in our group loved their food. Service was great, and the fish was fresh. I absolutely love Uni, but it is often not fresh, I was very pleased to find out they had just received their fresh uni that morning, and it was super yummy.... More

In my opinion the majority of the good sushi in Chicago is outside of the downtown area. Some up north in Lincoln Park, some in Wicker Park / Bucktown area. I wasn't expecting much at Friends but was somewhat surprised after receiving an above average meal. I live nearby so will for sure repeat.

My friend took me here when I visited her in Chicago and wow, I loved the place! Our service was great and the sushi was even better. I had a sashimi combo with soup and rice and loved it. Try their peach bellini - very refreshing! I would absolutely be back if I lived in Chicago.

This is a little hole in the wall, one street over from Michigan avenue. The food was fresh and service was great. They had a nice little setup outside, so sitting on the side street made it an excellent location. I at the 9pc Sashimi Deluxe, which was fresh and plenty of food. My wife got a couple rolls and...

Our first stop whenever we get into the city is Friends Sushi. Kind of a whole in the wall but fabulous food and staff. Food is imaginative and high quality. Reasonably priced. A tradition we plan to continue.

We ended up at Friends sushi on a weekend, a little after the lunch rush, without reservations. However, the wait was not too long and our party of 6 was seated in about 15 mins. The sushi was fresh and innovative. We tried several options from their "Friends Signature Maki" list and were very happy with the selections. The Ticky... More
