Kuni has been holding court in this location for about 20 years. Just sit at the bar and watch Kuni serve you the best traditional sushi.
On my annual trek to the Chicago area I again visited Kuni's. He has been open for almost 27 years and I have been going for 27 hears. Why? Because the quality of the fish is excellent, the presentation is better than most sushi restaurants I have been to and it is a family run restaurant. Kuni, the owner, will... More
Why isn't this place packed to the gills with people waiting, for dinner on an early Saturday night? That was the question I asked myself as my wife and I enjoyed a fantastic meal here at the sushi bar ahead of a movie last Saturday. Sure, this isn't one of the flashy, trendy, hip hop Americanized places to get sushi... More
Three of us went to Kuni's for a quick dinner. My husband and I ordered teriyaki chicken, and my son ordered chicken with vegetables. We all received a nice portion of miso soup which was quite good. We also got a tossed green salad that probably came from a bag. However, it was plentiful, and the dressing was excellent. The... More
We were hoping Kuni would be a nice neighborhood joint to go for a quick sushi fix. Unfortunately, the quality of the sushi ranges from mediocre to "it'll looks fine-just eat it" level, the preparation is uninspired and tastes are for the gentrified. On top of that, the prices make a downtown sushi hotspot seem like a bargain. My gf... More
Kuni's has been in business over 25 years, which in itself is a great sign. One of the earliest sushi restaurants in Evanston, it has also been one of the best. We moved from Evanston several years ago, but whenever I get back I go to Kuni's as the quality of the sushi is very high. I have never had... More
The fish is always fresh with excellent service. By far the best Sushi on the North Shore. We keep on going back and regret when we try some where new.
I have done a lot of business over the years in Japan, and Kuni's is by far the best Chicago-area Japanese restaurant for recreating the authentic experience. It's quiet, peaceful, furnished in light wood colors, and the sushi is sublime. No lox-and-cream-cheese or peanut-butter-and-jelly rolls here. Just a wide variety of fresh fish and other traditional ingredients. Many other traditional... More
Sushi nowadays is usually (NOT ALWAYS) prepared by non-Japanese chefs who really don't know the intricacies of preparing truly authentic sushi. Kuni-san started many years ago and is Japanese trained and knows all there is to know. (Although he is too modest to admit)He often will defer a choice of mine if he feels the current offering isn't fresh enough,... More
