“Not your average sushi restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Bigger than its sister restaurant in Rolling Meadows, the Sushi Station is Elgin with its long kaiten-style conveyor belt offers an impressive array of sushi. We learned that the conveyer works is way through the restaurant and that it takes a little over 11 minutes to repeat. During that time you should be able to see a very desirable selection or, at the very least, you can always order something with the really attentive waitstaff. Speaking of ordering, it is probably a good idea to order menu items that would be served hot, i.e. tempura shrimp, etc., through the staff. A great place to go with the famly and kids will enjoy it!

“Sushi Station”

Excellent food, good value, kids love it, wish they opened 4:30pm. In winter it is hard to stand outside waiting to get in at 5:01pm....

I love this sushi place, prices are decent and the food is always fresh and delicious, You can grab food off of the convey-er belt or order from the menu which is very convenient.

“Fun night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We've been going here for years and have never had bad food or a bad experience! Anytime we bring sushi newbies they love it! So many different and delicious flavor combinations, it's difficult not to find something you'd enjoy. It's great to be able to try smaller portions off the belt or order slightly larger portions directly from the kitchen. One of favorite places!

“Standard sushi fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

It was OK but not west coast sushi. The seats were way to close together. The idea that you could pick your own food as it travelled on the conveyor belt was cool though you have to watch what you grab because the color of the dishes identifies the cost as posted. It can be quite costly. But for a nice quick meal that not uncomfortable eating it's a good spot. Loved the seaweed salad.
