The food was fresh and very tasty. The service was excellent. It is very noisy, so go early if you don’t like crowds and noise. We went at 6:30; would do 5:30 next time.

Best sushi I've had all year, great atmosphere. Perfect flavor and texture, on par with the best places I've eaten at in NYC and LA. They nailed it.

Wow! What a great food at this restaurant. Maybe not cheap, but we think it is worth it considering overall prices in Chicago city centre. The restaurant has a very modern interior. We tried 2 different sushi rolls, dumplings and a tofu dish. We were...More
