Nice alternative to the predictable chain restaurants on Randall Road. Crunch Crab appetizer was fresh with just the right amount of spicy heat. Of the three of us, two ordered sushi entrees and one ordered a cooked meal. The presentation of the plates of sushi was beautiful and the food was delicious. The salmon was cooked just right, not overdone.... More

Located in the outbuilding of a strip mall the restaurant can be a bit difficult to find if you don't know what you are looking for. Service was competent and helpful in dealing with unfamiliar menu items. Food was very tasty but a bit on the expensive side. The vegetarian in our party had ample choices and was quite satisfied...

Have always wanted to give this place a try, based on the rave reviews. Hub and I went here for anniversary dinner. Atmosphere is very nice and everyone seems very friendly. We wanted to try a variety of dishes so decided to split a roll, appetizer, and entree. I have never seen a menu with so many choices on it,... More

This is my favorite place to go for any occasion. The atmosphere is great and the food is excellent! There is so much to choose from. I like their daily specials and my husband LOVES the Bento Box.

Very memorable experience. Incredible attention to customer service at every position. Greeted immediately at the door, then greeted by the bartender, then the sushi chefs, and then the server. Very comfortable decor, and great for a casual dinner or a romantic dinner. Very high sushi quality and presentation. We ordered the Lava Pit (a Yellow tail tempura, spicy tuna, avocado,... More

The food is great, the service is great, the atmosphere is great. Always a great experience. I often go there alone since it's so peaceful and I get to relax as well as enjoy a great meal.

This place is good but a tad pricey for what it is. Now that Shakou is open in St Charles, they need to pick up their game. I grew up on the west coast and worked for a Japanese bank for ten years. Batavia IL is not a destination for Sushi but this place will do if you have a... More

I go here frequently and take others. Everyone raves about it, including sushi connoisseurs. I am always newly surprised by how great it is. A favorite dish because it's fun is the one that arrives on fire. I believe it's called "Dragon Fire". I love the dark, modern atmosphere. We never feel like we're sitting too close to other tables.... More

We found this restaurant by mistake and it was worth the stop. The sushi was very good. A nice place for a date with my wife. I would go back if I lived in the area.
