We go there regularly. The whole family likes it a lot. Nice food and nice service. As we normally stay with the standard sushi we haven't tried many of the specials, though.

Owner and wait staff are rude. The food is less then average. Save your money and go elsewhere. We waited over 25 minutes for a large soup and then finally had enough and left.

We used to go to this restaurant at least once a month for their katsudon and specialty maki rolls especially their Angry Shrimp. But today we were treated poorly by the owner of the restaurant. when we told our server, Ming, that the Katsudon was particulary bad as it was soggy and tasteless...we know how it should taste like because this is what we order every time we go there...and the owner lost her temper when Ming asked her to have the chef re-make the improved version...we thought she would appreciate comments on poor quality menu item ...but instead she just threw a temper tandrum...we used to like the quality of the food in this location but no more...we are very disappointed in how she handled the situation...

This used to be our weekly sushi destination but the service keeps hitting new lows, and it is now dismal. Today, we were server Ming's victims. Our sushi sat on the sushi counter for 10 minutes while Ming disappeared. The sushi chef gazed at it occasionally but didn't feel compelled to do something about it.

When the waiter returned to the dining room, he meandered about oblivious to all. I finally got up, walked up to the sushi counter and asked that we be served the dishes that had been sitting there. The chef looked at me like I asked for a hand stand. No one seemed least interested in providing anything resembling service.

Oh, and we had to ask for napkins and chopsticks because there were none at our table. Then we had to ask for the saucers for the soy sauce. My tea was never refilled. Server Ming dropped off the dishes at our table and did not say a word. Of course he had no interest in checking back.

When Lawrence was the head waiter here and trained everyone, they had a great staff. Now you either get someone who has zero interest in providing any service, or someone annoyingly trying to get you to order more food and drinks than you could possibly finish. Whether you have a good experience is inconsequential.

I see fewer customers each time I'm there, and it's no wonder why.

As for the sushi, it's adequate at best. The simple truth is, Katsu is the only place in Chicago where you get real sushi. The rest are serving make-believe sushi.

I grew up on sushi in Japan, so am pretty picky. Sushi Kushi is our place to go for sushi for any event or even spontaneous dinner out.

We're a bit spoiled by the Sushi Kushi in Lake Forest, but the food here at Sans3 is just as good. The atmosphere in Lake Forest is a bit more relaxing, so we like the experience a bit better there.

Prices are pretty typical for good sushi, on the expensive side, but not unexpected. We love the Dragonfire roll and the salmon/halibut carpaccio. I also love the Lake Forest roll. SO good.
