Been here several times; I live in Palatine. Figured I'd write a review in that I usually write for trips I've taken but not so much at home. Anyway... smallish place in a strip mall with a dead grocery store next to it - yet packed parking lot. Here's what I see: - Friendly servers - Creative rolls with fresh... More

I loved the decor in this place, very stylish. I tried two rolls, Ocean Drive and Crunchy Muffy, both great. I liked that you can either order the rolls short or long, so I got two short rolls for lunch and it was perfect. (short was about 6 pieces) I didnt try the wine, but they had very reasonable prices... More

Visiting from Nj. Read good reviews and decides to try it. Edamame was overcooked. Rainbow roll which is my go to regular was not the regular as it was filled with spicy tuna. Fish was fresh tasting though and roll was good. I asked for a naruto roll (rolled in cucumber instead of rice) and they said it couldn't be... More

This cozy place in an assuming location at the end of a strip mall serves some of the best Sushi you'll find. Great presentation and variety and often wonderful service.

Beautiful presentations. Great atmosphere with cool electronic music. On the high end of sushi prices for this neighborhood, hence, not very busy when we went on a week day evening. You should be able to find discount coupons in numerous places. Attentive service with a lot of staff. The appetizers are original (to me) and sophisticated. Recommended for an impressive... More

This is a place our family consistently returns to for sushi. There is not a lot of atmosphere, but the sushi is excellent and presented beautifully. If you are not a fan of sushi, I've had several different teriyaki dishes and a noodle dish as well. The staff is always friendly and the service is good too.

This restaurant is very good. The menu is very contemporary, with some interesting spins on traditional Japanese cuisine. Love the Uni and yellowtail appetizer. We have had great service here. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable on the menu, and they have been very accomodating to special requests. The restaurant is not big, has nice booths and a contemporary sushi bar... More

Our receipt from this restaurant says "Rock N Roll Sushi", but the address and phone number are the same as listed. Enjoyed the meal tremendously. Nicely presented, fresh-tasting sushi and rolls. Creative options, without being cloying or pretentious. Not over done. I wish they were in our neighborhood. Nice discovery in an are with otherwise bland culinary choices. Very good... More

Their sushi is outstanding, but for those not in the mood for sushi they have a very good kitchen for cooked seafood and other dishes.
