I have been here a few times and had another very good experience last night. I had 15 pieces of nigiri suishi. The thickness of the slices of fish such as the maguro are more generous than other Japanese restaurants in the area. The unagi was also a generous and very moist slice. Sometimes unagi comes out dry in cheaper... More

My boyfriend and I went to Haru last night fore a belated anniversary dinner, and it was great! The lady who was serving us was friendly and attentive, but not doting. We split two sushi rolls and an order of fried rice and it was plenty for the two of us. The food was so delicious that even once we... More

Sushi was fresh, well prepared. Killer udon noodle soup. Nuthin super fancy, but nice and reasonable prices. Totally up to par with the best I've had in NYC, LA or San Fran.

I went to dine during the week while staying in Sycamore for work. The restaurant wasn't busy at all. The service was just okay, and the sushi was just okay too. I've definitely had better and fresher sushi.

Last night, we went there for the first time. We got there a short time before the restarurant filled up. The food was great, our server attentive. It was an enjoyable experience. I would recommend and go back. Next time, we will sit at the sushi bar, so we can experience the interaction with the chefs.

I've seen several reviews on other sites comparing this place to Fushi Yami. Stop. There is no comparison. Fushi Yami is the asian fast food of NIU using cheaper ingredients, cheap plastic dinnerware, and never fails to leave a strange taste in your mouth. Yes it is cheaper. Yes you get what you pay for. You wouldn't compare Ruth Chris... More

For a small town, we are fortunate to have Haru of Japan! The atmosphere is pleasant and the food very good! They seem to specialize in sushi, but there are other choices as well. My favorite is the salmon teriyaki.

Love this place, the sushi is fantastic and fresh. The fried rice is superb! I would like to see another soup selection, I have tried the miso soup several times and can't get my taste buds to be happy. I love everything else!

After living in Hawai'i for a couple years I developed a taste for sushi. Finding good sushi in the Midwest though is a bit of a challenge. Haru's doesn't disappoint. Their sushi is always fresh and flavorful, and service prompt and unfailingly friendly. The Dragon roll is my favorite, and a real treat. Even in the suburbs, I haven't found... More
