Just walking in and NOT smelling fish impressive. The sushi bar is at the back of the grocery store. It's not fancy but it is good. If you're in a hurry they have prepackaged sushi that they make daily. They also have whole fish that is fresh and inviting in their refrigerator case.

I have been to this market at least a hundred times and the restaurant is some cheap tables inside the grocery store,so you are not there for the ambiance. This is the only fish house I have ever been to with not the slightest smell of fish. The quality of the fish here is A+++. Why eat there when you can buy beautiful sashimi in the market and do it all at home. The seafood for cooking is the best in the city of Chicago,the fat content on the salmon is outragious. If you like the rice there are plenty of pre-made rolls and sushi or you can get things to go, but I prefer browsing the sashimi section grabbing some wasabi and ginger and heading home to drink some beer or wine with that incredibe raw fish. I rate the fish 5 stars.

I love Tensuke's vegetarian sushi offerings: umeshiso maki (pickled plum paste and perilla leaf) is my favorite, but avocado rolls and inari are great here as well. Whether you're getting fish or vegetarian sushi, it is 30-50% less than in most restaurants and fresh! There noodles are wonderful as well.

Tensuke Market (formerly True World Market) has a wonderful in-house sushi bar and cut-to-order sashimi-grade fish available. In the last few years, they have added a seating area (sort of a mini-Mitsuwa) for people to eat in. Prices are better than Mitsuwa, and the sushi is certainly fresher. Great specials, and they do party platters VERY cheaply here, but with quality. Occasional language barriers, and some of the sushi-men are not Japanese, but once you get past that, it is certainly worth the visit.

Tensuke Market is actually a small Japanese/Asian grocery store. Nice produce selections and extensive seafood offerings. No website at this time.
