We've had carryout twice from Rainbow Sushi so far, and I'm looking forward to ordering again so we can try more dishes. Our first carryout order was all sushi - California rolls, some with salmon, and some with tuna. All were good. Our second carryout...order was the following: California roll, Alaska roll, Golden Dragon roll, Yaki Udon with chicken, and drunken noodles with chicken. California rolls are my favorite, so I'd definitely order them from here again. The Alaska roll was fine, but I wouldn't reorder the Golden Dragon roll. It's too expensive but it was good to try. I liked the Yaki Udon and would reorder it. My son liked the drunken noodles but it was a little spicy for me (no fault of the restaurant - just me). If you're reading this and are trying to decide whether to visit or not, read no more and just go! There's plenty to choose from and you won't be disappointed!More

Rainbow Sushi is a little jewel of a sushi restaurant. The sushi and sashimi are always fresh, consistent in quality and very well presented. Their house salad comes with an amazing apple-based dressing, which is amazing. The chef will make just about anything you want...even if it's not on the menu. The owners, Joe and Joyce, as well as the entire staff, are always friendly and accommodating. I eat there often and enjoy it every time. Highly recommended.More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch for the first time. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. The other people behind the counter were friendly as well. We ordered the bento box lunches. They were very good. We will definitely order from them...again.More

We come here at least once a month. We order the civiche, homemade Asian sea food noodle soup, and finally two sashimi boats. I order hot sake to drink they have Sapuro and wines as well. The owner is extremely friendly. She is always glad...to see us. Finally we topped it of with some green tea mochi ice cream. We have been coming here for almost 25 yesrs! Always fresh! Consistent! Pleasant service!More

It has been a while since our last visit. Met the new owner who is super friendly and attentive. Love the unique style of Caramel and authentic Chirashi. Will be back much more often!

Sushi is always fresh and made in front of you. Rainbow fried rice is good as well. Could use a little more salt, but just add the soy sauce. Friendly staff. Nice place to relax and eat well.

Had lunch with a client and the Sushi was simply delicious! Great service and very quick! Small, quiet, place we were able to have our lunch and have a good conversation.

I recently wrote a review about the sushi boats. I thought I might mention their soups too. It is getting colder. Nothing like hand made Asian noodle soup. I like the sea food they have others. I have ordered them many times one soup is...a lot for one person and can possibly be for two. Always a consistent product never fails. On the that note I think it is wrong that person can come into a restaurant get a bad a experience and post a photo so that the world can see their mistake. I have been in the restaurant business for over 25 years. There has never been a restaurant that never made a mistake I am talking fast food all the way up to 5 star restaurants. I do agree that the situation wasn't handled properly. But I think that posting a photo is immature. I have been to this restaurant for years and never a mistake they only came once and were disappointed. It is obvious that the persons who posted this photo were young and inexperienced.More

I started buying their sushi at a local Asian market and that and recommendations of friends led me to their main restaurant. Now is is my preferred takeout sushi place. The fish is always fresh, the portions are on the large side, and the prices...are reasonable.More

I'd rate sushi for 3.5 star and thai for 2.5 star. First of all, this is a neighborhood eatery, nothing fancy or romantic. The sushi is fresh and I think take-out for lunch has the best value. Compared with other sushi places nearby, such as...Yoyogi sushi at Kentland, Rainbow has similar quality, better sushi rice, and fewer varieties. Thai food is another story...the Pad Thai and Drunken noodle I tried were far from authentic or impressive. It was not bad but mediocre.More
