A must try if you're into sushi. We ordered the dynamite scallops twice it was so good. Definitely a keeper in my book. Service was fast and spot on. Plus she was very knowledgeable of the menu.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. We were seated promptly but after that it was all downhill. This place was extremely loud. We waited almost 15 minutes for someone to come and take our drink order. After seeing multiple servers walking past our table without even glancing at us, we got up and left.

The sushi was excellent. But you could get lost in the multiple menus. Since I tend to order the same thing it wasn't a problem. Service was very attentive. Water glasses filled, drinks re-ordered. Very good.

We had two drinks and some nigiri and tuna and avocado. Squid, scallop and Octopus. Squid had better texture than the Octopus. Nice place to sit outside for a drink. Waiter was super friendly.

We just love this place. Fantastic sushi, and this time we were able to sit outside and people-watch -- which made the whole experience even better. We also love the one in Las Vegas.

We found this restaurant by searching on the web, found a great review and we did not make a mistake! Came twice for dinner while staying in Chicago! Some of the chef's specials are just fantastic, take a seat by the counter and order directly to the chef! Miso soup is just fantastic! Whatever you order will just be amazing.... More

I really wanted to like this sushi bar on Chicago's restaurant row...but it is average at best. The sushi dishes were ok, but uninspired. The sunimono was pretty good. Prices are relatively high for what you get. They have a list of non-traditional rolls, but they can be kinda pricey. And $4.00 for a small and mediocre bowl of miso... More

In Chicago on business and after a full day we ran out from the hotel for a quick sushi meal. Either we are very spoiled by the quality of sushi that we eat regularly at home or this is truly an average sushi bar. The rolls and the sashimi were just "eh" without much flavor and did not appear fresh.... More
