Good Price. Good sushi

I have never had a bad experience at Toro. If you get a chance to sit at the bar, the owner is often back there making sushi and it is worth having him make you whatever he wants. This is also an incredibly affordable sushi place + plus BYOB = cannot go wrong. Only downside is no reservations for... read more

I am from Argentina, my boyfriend is from the US and he lived in Chicago for many years. The first time I went to Toro he told that it was the best restaurant in all Chicago. And he wasn't lying! Not only the sushi is the best I've ever tried, also Mitch and all the personal working there are awesome!!... More

Bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy lots of fish! Yummy and fast service. They were able to accommodate our party of 9 probably because we arrived as soon as they opened. It is a very popular spot and does not take reservations so arrive early or be prepared to wait.

You may walk in and wonder if you accidentally strolled into the local college place to be, but giving its proximity it was self explanatory. Coming on Friday night my group found we had to wait about thirty minutes to be seated, but after waiting we found out that it was absolutely an amazing experience. The staff are all courteous,...

This was our third year to visit Toro Sushi since we discovered it in the new year 2012. One thing, for sure, the food just gets better and the service too. Mitch's sushi and sashimi has converted my partner to a real aficionado - Mitch's sashimi literally melts in your mouth. We always let Mitch select what he thinks will... More

A friend of mine introduced me to Sushi Toro about 2 years ago, and it quite literally blew me away. The chef's name is Mitch, and I have never seen anyone take more pride in their craft than he does in the fish he selects and prepares for his clients. The place is tiny. (Think hole in the wall.) Often... More

Best sushi in Chicago! This is a hidden gem in Lincoln Park, small dive but super delicious and BYOB. All sushi is very fresh. Be prepared to wait especially on Friday and Sarurday evenings but its worth it!

I came to Toro because the reviews on here and yelp were really good. We went when the place opened since people complained about the wait and we were the only people in there for about 15 mins or so. The decor is horrible. I don't know if we had an off night but it was horrible. We got 3... More

This small sushi restaurant is always packed for a reason: their sushi flavors are one of a kind. It being BYOB gives it even bigger lines because you can eat more for less! The special maki's are what's hot here. Don't try to get creative ordering the simple rolls. Try the OMG, O roll, Big Ten, Kamikaze, Three Amigos...those are... More
