“Great food, tons of kids under 10!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

The food was fantastic! We read these reviews before going there. If you go around 5pm be aware that the Ritz Carlton is in this location so everyone's kids eat at that time due to the discount on dinner/appetizers. It was very loud and hosts are a little snotty. I would NOT recommend as a romantic dinner. Other than that the food was by far a 5 star encounter. ( we had Hawaiian ahi & crab cakes, plus various sushi rolls - the leche martini was exceptional)

“25% off from 5:30pm-6pm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

We are sushi lovers so we had to eat sushi on our Hawaiian Islands vacation. Chose this place because of the 25% discount between 5:30-6 and based on recommendations from relatives and other tourists as well as Tripadvisor.
The food was very good, but we only ordered the rolls and other cooked items because I cannot bear to order a $9 amaebi which is only $4 in Chicago. Prices are even higher compared to Japonais in Chicago which is really fancy with great sushi.
Service was really good though. If you plan to dine here, make a reservation or arrive early since many people take advantage of the discounted price. We were there by 5:10pm and there was already a line to get in.
Will skip this place next time though and wait till we get back to Chicago to have really good sushi at reasonable prices.

“Absolutely fabulous!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2009

This restaurant is absolutely wonderful. The menu selection is almost too much to comprehend, but the wait staff are very helpful. The servings are generous and very reasonably priced. Best of all, the taste. The mix of flavors, presentation, etc. are all wonderful. If you enjoy sushi, GO HERE!

“One of our Favorite meals!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2009

We actually were told about this place by a local, who said it is some of the best sushi, she's ever had. And she was absolutely right. We kept ordering different types of sushi, as it was so good, we couldn't get enough. They also had some great appetizers calamari was especially delicious.

Service was also excellent and very friendly.

Word to the wise, the place gets busy very, very earlier, so prepare to wait (outdoors, as the line usually wraps around the building)!

Enjoy!

“Some of the best sushi ive ever eat,but.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2009

AMAZING FOOD,VERY CROWDED. I am a sushi lover and they knocked my socks off,but everyone that worked there,EVERYONE, acted like they were doing us a favor by allowing us the privilege of eating there and spending part of our precious honeymoon budget at there restaurant. A smile, a kind tone, a non sarcastic response to simple questions like regarding where the restroom is? NOTE TO MANAGEMENT the Ritz Carlton makes a guest feel like they are welcome and appreciated.Your staff made me feel the opposite.
