The sushi was spot on perfect! I had the galena narudo roll and my bf had the spice girl roll and boy were they amazing! We had the jalapeno yellowtail as an appetizer and it tasted so fresh and the jalapeno slices were the perfect amount of kick. The ginger dressing on the salad was one of the best dressings... More

The food was good. The chef was nice but the waitress seemed cold. Maybe she was just busy or preoccupied with the kids in the back.

My wife (who doesn't like sushi) and I had lunch here. They have a great assortment of fare for those who are not sushi fans. Mine was excellent, as was the warm Saki.

We had a quick dinner after the 4th of July parade, and the waiter (owner?) was great, he went out of his way to make my family comfortable. I had a sushi/sashimi combo dinner, and it was very good. The food was fresh, and everyone enjoyed their meal. I'll be back for the service, friendly atmosphere, and sushi.

Really good food with a nice change of pace. Great service and you will definitely leave satisfied. Don't let lack of ppl in the restaurant steer you away.

We went here on a Saturday night. We ordered 2 kinds of sushi and hibachi shrimp dinners. Everything tasted great! Would have like to see some dipping sauces liked served at Shogun or JMK in Rockford. We would definitely eat here again our next trip to Galena.

We've walked past this place many times while in Galena. At the suggestion of a local, we finally decided to try it last night. The outside appearance of the restaurant is a bit deceiving. It doesn't look like much from the outside. Once inside though, we found the place to be very clean and nice. They serve fresh seafood here... More

Stopped in for a small bite and was really pleasantly surprised! The quality of the sushi was amazing and the service was good too. Amy who I believe is one of the owners as well was cheerful and and attentive. Would love to go back for a full meal sometime, I saw some rolls being made that looked extremely enticing!

My husband and I live in the city of Chicago. We were going to try this place last year, but my husband couldn't talk me into sushi in Galena. This year, I said I'd try it, and we went Memorial Day weekend. The sushi was excellent! You could easily stack this place up with any sushi place in Chicago, and... More
