Enjoyed the sushi here when visiting Millennium Park, both rolls and sashimi. They also have a good location near old Irving Park.

Perfect for a tasty and fresh mid-day culinary interlude. My lunch was exactly what the doctor ordered, as my o bento box struck the perfect balance between quality food, quality presentation and quality of overall dining experience. The interior design compliments the menu and allows you to take a quick break from the big city hustle and bustle visible on... More

The food was great and each of us had very different dishes, bento box, sushi platter, curry dish and a noodle dish. We were all very pleased with the... More

It's close to our embassy & the resto was on our way. We were seated right away, it was at the back. But our waiter wasn't that friendly at all. His name is "LAND" on our receipt.. I wish that we had gotten his full name. This is what happened, it was three separate checks, my friend then decided to... More

The cucumber maki was pretty standard, and the sweet potato maki was good. Our big surprise was the Mega Vega which had an unexpected depth of flavor and texture. We sat on the... More
