Offerings were very fresh and prepared promptly. Sushi chefs and server were friendly and welcoming. Atmosphere is clean and classy - liked the piano jazz. Would definitely recommend.

Very traditional, the food was excellent. You have to order the lobster roll, simply stunning! Little bit expensive but totally worth it.

We really enjoyed this Asian restaurant, had several vegetarians who found items they liked, also had some varied soups, noodle dishes and sushi, all was very nice. Good fast service, nifty interior in an upscale area of Elmhurst. I would go again when traveling to...Chicago Illinois area.More

The bar is great, the ambience is perfect and the staff is superb and friendly. We have been coming for over a decade and Sushi Nest just keeps getting better. Sure, we will visit some of the other places in town, but we gravitate here...for date night AND when we have the kids with us for a good meal. Love the classic dining room in the front window, it's worth needeing a reservation. Again, the staff is just fantastic. Great sushi chefs and wait staff!More

Been coming for many years, now that I love out of state this is a regular when I visit. Love the ami ebi, unagi and blue fin when available. Always enjoy the spider roll as well. Richard treats the customers well and always remembers me...even though I don’t visit as often as when I lived locally. Best sushi on western suburbs.More

Met a friend there for dinner. Sushi was excellent. Great variety and they make it right in front and not back out of sight. Great selection. Great lunch specials. Kinda pricey but really good sushi. Rolls were good sized pieces. Loved the Hawaiian roll. Worth...the stop.More

We always enjoy going to the Sushi Nest. We enjoy sitting at the bar and watching the chefs prepare the meals. The staff and chefs are always welcoming. You will not go wrong at this restaurant.

Stopped in for a solo dinner while on business. I only got miso soup and sashimi but it was very good. Portions of sashimi are small but very fresh. They serve complimentary edamame as an appetizer and an orange for dessert. They have a wide...variety of specialty rolls although I did not order one. The service was very good and there is a nice ambiance. I would come back here.More

The Niku Soba Soup, always a hit with my wife and I, is the best we've tasted. The Sushi chef is quite skilled in presentation and taste. Exceptionally good food...a fun spot to drop in on after a movie at the York.

We have been coming to Sushi Nest since they opened because they consistently have the best sushi around. Everyone we have taken here agrees. It's simply a great spot to grab authentic and delicious sushi in the suburbs. We think it's one of the best...so check it out.More

We met some friends here for dinner and were looking for a place halfway between our houses. This place was recommended by someone I knew. What a pleasant surprise! Everything was very creative, beautiful and reasonably priced. We all had drinks, rolls, and one of...us had a bento box, and our bill was very reasonable for a Sushi place! They started out by giving us a complimentary dish of edamame. We had a "roll" called spring that was tasty, but wasn't really a roll- it was 3 pieces of endive with a chopped tartar type mix, then topped with various caviars. There was no easy way to share them, so we each just picked one. The one I had was good, but if we could have had them cut in half, we could have tasted others. The other roll we had was a roll called Una-Una or something like that with tempura crunch on the outside and super white on the inside, it was delicious! We ordered another roll called the Pink Lady which was a superstar! It was cut and laid flat and topped with 2 yummy sauces and the end pieces were presented in a martini glasses with a color-changing glowing ice cube. WOW! Our last roll was called golden dragon, and was deep fried and presented with flaming soy sauce. Another knockout presentation, but the flavors of this one weren't as dynamite as the others. Our friend that had the bento box got a ton of food and really enjoyed it all. The atmosphere her was really nice, lights a bit dim, and very romantic. I would return for sure.More

I was incredibly disappointed by this meal. We ordered the lobster rolls and while it was pretty good, it was definitely not worth the price of $23. The miso soup was middle of the pack but not too pricey. The worst part of the meal...was the Tonkatsu. It was completely flavorless, low quality, and tasted frozen. You can find similar quality in sushi for much cheaper not only in the suburbs but in Elmhurst itself. When it came to service, I felt like an afterthought rather than a valued customer. I will never go back here and I suggest you avoid it before you make the same $50 mistake I did.More

Always stop when returning to the area. Service is great with fresh fish and items I cannot get in the western US. Try the ami ebi, deep fried shrimp head and raw body. Most people avoid this because it is a shrimp head with eyes...but it is crunchy and rich in shrimp flavor. I always get recognized even if not visited in many month. Best sushi is western suburbs of Illinois.More

I love the sushi here. Always very fresh and tasty. They give you the royal treatment too. The extra touches are very nice-dishes are pretty and tasty. The service is very good and polite. This is an upscale sushi/Japanese restaurant.

Sushi Nest has it all...amazingly fresh sushi rolls and exceptional service. Each time I go, they make sure to say hello and point out new things on the menu worth trying. It's a great meal for any occasion...I've been with friends, dates and co-workers. I've...never heard anything but "Let's go back!" from anyone I've taken. They also offer black and brown rice for their rolls.More
