I really liked this place, and the food tastes great.. Their sushi portions are generous and the price is not bad based on quality of food.. If you're a sushi lover I very much recommend this place.. It's a chilled out environment inside.. Everything I tried was great.. Recommended!

This is a place that has solid sushi and sashimi, but lives off the location and tourists, not off he quality of food. Good, but not great.

Small, easy to find location, but seated right away. Service was great and the sushi was amazing. Affordable place to eat out in a bit city! Great martini and cold beer. Would recommend no matter the occasion!

This is not average sushi place, it has very interesting menu with strange but good taste. naturally there are all normal portions, but on top of that more exotic also. But i loved it. We were there with colleagues and had several portions we shared and all were delicious. For me that white decor including those inconvenient white chairs was... More

Hello again fellow Advisors... Had the opportunity to visit this sushi spot. Of course with 200+ reviews and 4.5 stars it makes your craving for sushi easy to satisfy. It's right downtown near all. Don't walk too fast though, you may miss it. Small spot but once inside it has a cool white decor. Service was good. I saw a... More

We went here for the first time as a group of 8. The place is small, intimate, and a great setting. Service was excellent. Food and drinks came fast! We had a LOT of sushi. Like 2 large platters of sashimi, 15 rolls, and some Nigiri. Toss in some sake, beer, wine, and other beverages. Plenty to fill us full.... More

I was surprised how good the sushi was! It's a tiny place, decorated like a space ship but the sushi was yummy!

During a stay of one week in Chicago I visited Friends Sushi three times. Sushi is always fresh and served at the right temperature. Friendly service. The Pinot Grigio is a perfect accompaniment to Sushi. Our favorites: Sashimi Combo, Big Friends (soft shell crab tempura) Devils' Tuna (Spicy Tuna) Crispy Spicy Tuna.

While visiting Chicago for a work conference I dined at Friends Sushi for an early dinner after reading other reviews. The rolls I had were delicious, fresh, and different from what I have had elsewhere. I had the friend roll and crunchy spicy tuna. The miso soup was really good as well. It is very small inside with tables close... More
