I remember coming here for years and it was a great restaurant. So with that in mind and because of the downtown location, came for my son's birthday. Place needs a good cleaning- there is a strong smell of old grease, floors are beat up. No ambience at all. Very strange there were some posters and signs tacked or taped... More

Mediocre sushi - seems to have a heavy greasy smell due to the hibachi activity. Service was typical but felt somewhat unfriendly and disinterested

Ordered a chicken dish and I found what looked like old cooked shrimp mixed in with my chicken. That could have been a very big issue if I were allergic to seafood!!!! The vegetables with my dish, half were cold and half were cooked. The fried rice was edible (thank goodness). Not worth the price I had to pay for... More

I enjoyed this Sushi Restaurant very much and would go back but I am a little picky and this was an A experience not an A+ because I am comparing to the best Sushi in Seattle and San Francisco.

I have been hitting this place for over 20 years. I love the sushi bar experience, sake and rolls. They have real King Crab which is a big plus for me. Many hotels within very close walking distance.

I have a local (Illinois) favorite Japanese Steak House and this place was good, but nothing to write home about.

This restaurant was awesome! It was right next to the Aloft. The food and service were excellent. The menu was very extensive, with both sushi and other entrée choices. It was affordable and we were very pleased with dinner and drinks.
