Good value sushi

This is good everyday sushi. No thrills or frills. Keep it simple and order the 'regular' items (spicy tuna roll, spider roll, pieces of hamachi). Good food fast at a reasonable price.

Service is good, location is good but the sushi just isn't good at all and it's too expensive. Tastes like sushi that you buy at the grocery store that's pre made. Sushi para is a better choice.

While this place is not in a strip mall, that's what I would equate it to. We've been here a few times as it is in our hood and due to it being BYOB but it's just not good quality sushi. The only roll that is worth mentioning is the volcano roll. Tasty! Every other roll that we've ordered there... More

Modern deco BYOB Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar with a fun unique maki presentation served daily in the heart Chicago's Old Town Neighborhood. SkyScraper Maki. Sushi Chefs build famous buildings and landmark Chicago skyscrapers right on the platter.

We decided on a whim to try this little chinese restaurant/takeaway as it was really near our hotel, and we're very happy we did. The place looks a little cheap from the outside, but once we got inside the staff were really friendly and helpful. There was a good selection of authentic chinese dishes, it all tasted very good and... More

The banana tempora with ice cream for dessert was excellent! Best of all, it's a BYOB and that's a MUST for us!! The second time we went it... More
