Looking for a casual sushi place near Schaumburg. Not knowing of anything near where we were staying, looked to Siri for suggestions.Nikko came up and had high ratings. Once we arrived, we knew we made a good choice. The place is authentic and had good atmosphere. There were several locals eating there and there was consistent amount of diners. Even... More

While the Yelp reviews are outstanding on this location, I found the fish to be solid, but nothing to write home about. Then again, this isn't where you'd expect top-notch sushi. A satisfying meal and I'd go again next time I'm in this suburban area.

We spent two nights in the Chicago area and found this restaurant near our hotel. It was already highly rated on TripAdvisor, so we tried it. My wife typically like Chinese food, and lemon chicken in particular. No lemon chicken here. The place was busy, but they sat us down quickly at the bar where we could watch the sushi... More

Delicious soup, and decent sushi. Lots of regional asian hot dishes including some I've not tried before. It's a basic place but solid and different!

Nikko Japanese has very fresh sushi with a lot of variety. Typically very crowded for dinner on the weekends, but it worth the wait.

I've been about a dozen times. The sushi is delicious, the staff are friendly. I love bringing new people here. The only downside is they are not open on Sundays, but everyone deserves a day off. It's hidden in a little strip mall, but it's a hidden gem.

My husband found this gem a few years back and we've been regulars since. We go at least 3 times a month and we even got our own sets of chop sticks courtesy of John (Nikko's owner). Fantastic selection, fresh, delicious, artistic... YUM!!! The service is beyond compare. They remember you by name and accommodate any requests. We just love... More

Just happened to stumble across this spot as I fly in late to Chicago and needed to grab a bit. The sushi here is very fresh and the biggest sushi rolls I have ever had. The menu was very large. I was more than pleased with my meal. For those who don't eat sushi this is still a good option... More

Was way more casual than expected, it was low key, which was nice. Very good food at very reasonable prices. We couldn't decide, so we ordered a large fried rice, 3 different sushi & a dinner plate. We all shared family style.
