Fresh and generous amount of sushi

We went for the first time. The owner was a former waitress at another Japanese Restaurant. We met people who go all the time who alternate between sushi and tempura because it simplifies making difficult decisions. We will definitely go back!

The owner was very attentive, friendly and assertive. The fish was fresher than expected and the sashimi portions were ample. A simple, small strip mall sushi bar but unless you need a fancy atmosphere, I suspect that this is the best sushi in the area. I would go back without hesitation.

Wow! Just had one of the best Japanese comfort food dinner EVER! I start with a cup of scalding hot green tea, miso soup... and agedashi tofu. I wish you could have smelled the broth! It was the best I've ever had because the broth was fish based!! The tofu was well fried crusty and chewy with a soft, silky... More

This is a great neighborhood place for inventive sushi and authentic Japanese fare. They have one of the best bento boxes on the North Shore. The place is small so midweek is a good choice. The service is very quick and accurate if a bit unfriendly.

I have not found better sushi in the North Shore. It is freshly made by chef Paul, and his wife Irene is an amazing waiter. Irene remembers every order, and Paul makes the best sushi. I strongly recommend there specials including the North Shore Roll, and The Sunrise roll. And for regular rolls, any kind of tuna, eel, and their... More

Fujiyama is by far the best sushi-serving restaurant in the Chicago area. It's cozy and welcoming, and I always stop by whenever I'm in town. My favorite appetizers are the soft shell crab, the stuffed mussels, and the fried tofu. As for the sushi, no words can do justice in describing the ecstasy that ensues when you take a bite... More

Paul and Irene always have the freshest sushi and the best service. Paul is a true artist and will accede to almost any request. I've been to a bunch of 'high end' or fancy sushi places around the country and world and Fujiyama, right in my own backyard, is always the absolute best!

I have entertained business colleagues from both coasts, from Europe and from the midwest over fifty times at this restaurant and have to say that their food is of the highest standards and the service is impeccable. Irene and Paul, the husband-wife co-owners of this little restaurant do their utmost to achieve consistency of high quality sushi and other Asian... More

We’ve been devoted customers of this restaurant for more than 10 years. What is really amazing about this place is the consistency – the food is ALWAYS exceptionally fresh and tasty. Dining or just having a quick lunch there is enjoyable experience. Eating there quite often for a long period of time I can’t recall a single visit when we... More
