“Sushi, the way it is in Japan”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

So, here is the deal, or at least, here is the deal from my limited knowledge base...
In Japan, sushi is not what it is in the US. Sushi is not served at ultra-trendy, dark, super pricey, couture restaurants. Instead, sushi is a working man’s food, meant to eat quickly as a small meal or a snack between meals. This is exactly what sushi is like at Sushi Station; quick, cheap and fast. The quality of the fish is good, not the best I have ever had, but it is good, and much better than sushi I have had at higher-priced establishments. Service is efficient. Variety of rolls is excellent, especially if you are there during prime time lunch or dinner hours.
My only complaint is not really a complaint at all. I just prefer the Randall Road location over the Rolling Meadows location. If you have the time to drive to Huntley, do it. The Sushi Station there is MUCH better.

“A "parade" of sushi!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

This place was really good and I loved the "parade" of sushi on the conveyer belt! It was really hard to control myself because I wanted to try them all.

“Over-Rated”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you like standing a long time in a cattle call line waiting to be seated, and if you like when it feels that your server is waiting for you to hurry up and leave so they can take care of the next customer, you 'll like this place. The sushi is good and reasonably priced.

Ok, you know you're at a good sushi place when there's a line to get in Sunday morning before they open. Casual but great sushi!!

“Fun way to eat sushi”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

The main draw to this place is the belt for the sushi. It is fun to watch the various rolls and sashimi go by your table. You have pretty good control of how much you spend due to the collection of plates which vary in color based on price. We always enjoy eating here.
