A little hole in the wall that was very surprising! The cocktails were amazing (highly suggest the French pear martini and the lychee martini). Tons of sushi to choose from on the menu and wasn’t over the top expensive. Just off of the Mag Mile,...More

Was in town on business and did not want the hotel food. I looked to trusty TripAdvisor and of course it paid off. Cute small place and perfect small tables for solo diners. It is a hip cool lounge feel and the food was amazing....More

It looked like a place only the locals know about, but we had a great dinner of sashimi and a noodle bowl with seafood. Will definitely keep coming back here on our returns to the city.

Excellent and creative sushi in a buzzy, futuristic setting. We tried several of their sushi rolls, all of them very tasty with some great combinations I have not seen anywhere else. The place looks cool, and service is attentive and friendly. It is a small...More

After looking at all of our restaurant options for dinner, we landed on sushi. Only a few blocks from our hotel on the Mag Mile, we were seated promptly during the dinner rush (around 7:30 PM) on a Saturday night. The dining room is pretty...More

Small cosy restaurant. Ordered a shashimi plate. It came with a cup of miso soup. Soup was pretty good. Generous 12 large pieces of sashimi. 5 types of fish, reasonably priced. Slightly weird addition was the inclusion of some rice with the sashimi plate.
