I wish there were an option to leave one star. We wandered in here late after seeing a show at 773 Theater, as many other restaurants were closed. I see from the reviews that some people think the sushi is good here, but that's not...More

Fresh sushi in a nice atmosphere. The service was attentive and welcoming. I also liked the fact that it is BYOB and the menu is vegetarian and meat eater friendly. Makes it an easy choice for a big group.

I hate pink, but the pink lady roll is delightful. of all the sushi places I've tried around Chicago, this place is excellent. Moderate prices, great location by the Belmont Red line stop, cozy interior with great corner window seats. Besides the pink lady roll,...More
