Excellent new concept of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine mixing both in a unique way. We really enjoyed the Purple Summer and the Lavender as well as the Nama Sake Ceviche. The decor is outstanding with an all white modern look. Staff was courteous and helpful. Prices are moderate and really will be coming back again.

Really excellent sushi at very reasonable prices. A number of unusual combinations that give you a chance to try something different. They had a number of vegetarian options, which is not always the norm. Place is small and pretty tightly packed. Modern decor and techno music and a pretty young crowd. Oh, and a nice selection of cocktails.

After reading some reviews and asking around the city we got varying suggestions but this one came up a few times from locals, so we tried it. It's not super fancy and is small but has a fun eclectic look to it and the prices are reasonable for the city. It's a couple blocks off Mich Ave on a quiet... More

For us, sushi is the choice when we are not sure what we want to eat. We saw Friends Sushi on Tripadvisor and the pictures sold us. The place is small but hip. The service was really good. We ordered a spicy tuna roll, the Fujiyama, and the Friends Maki. All of it was wonderful. They used real crab instead... More

I am a "newer" sushi lover. The beef and asparagus as well as the squid and cilantro rolls are so delicious!! The dining room is very small and seating tight, but the service and sushi are so wonderful you won't mind!!

Was recommended this restaurant by the concierge in our hotel & it didn't disappoint- although we did get of to a bad start when there wasn't a table free at the time we'd booked & we had to wait for one to become free. I guess the upside of this is that it's an extremely popular place which is always... More

Fresh and tasty. Good wine and cocktails selection. Service was good and not a long wait for food to be served. If planning to go, make reservations ahead, it's always packed.
