Amazing service and amazing sushi. The fried rice was probably the best I've had. Would recommend and would return.
Sat at the sushi bar and got to talk to the chef as he made everything for me. All was great, super fresh and glad I listened to his recommendations.
We ate here on Friday, December 9. We waited a while to to get a table and were seated in the private back booth, which was fantastic! The menu is smaller than what were used to for a sushi restaurant. My son ordered two rolls and I ordered two rolls. Unfortunately, with the small number of pieces per roll and lack of variety of fillings, such as cream cheese, or being able to add things in, it was not very filling. We all ended up going out for breakfast after we went to a local arcade. Our bill came close to $200, and while the sushi was absolutely delicious, I strongly feel it was very overpriced for the amount of filling that was in the sushi versus other sushi restaurants. Also, I feel the same as other reviewers, that the number of pieces per roll fell very short for the price paid. Also, the cost for soft drinks was exorbitant. I’m not sure if they offer free refills or not but we all paid $10-$15 each for the two refills we each had.
Incredible menu. Togarashi Hamachi- the sauce?? 🤤 wow. We ordered extra. Summer roll, California roll, shrimp tempura, salmon special roll, salmon shashimi👌🏻 Yeti sake- generous and smooth serving. So good. HIGHLY recommend!!!
This place is EXQUISITE!!! The sushi is so fresh and tender, it literally has your tastes buds going crazy with all the delicious flavors. HIGHLY RECOMMEND...
Neighborhood gem! Super intimate with great seafood and sushi. The tuna tartare, unagi, spicy octopus roll, and uni are all favorites
I don't know if the sushi chef was the main guy or if they pulled in a dishwasher to cut their fish last night, but it was clear that whoever cut the fish last night had no idea how to do it. I ordered the $89 sashimi plate, which is supposed to have 12 pieces. Sashimi is typically and most properly cut thicker than fish for nigiri. The fish served last night was so thin, and clearly not as it was supposed to be, because I got several extra pieces and half pieces - not because the chef was being generous, but rather because the slices were almost certainly for nigiri. Perhaps this would be ok if it was a $29 plate, but it was an $89 plate. If you are going to charge top dollar, you had better have a top preparation. The Blue fin tuna was the weirdest texture I have ever had. It was spongy, and not in a good way. Further, I ordered a piece of Uni, and it was horrible. Tiny pieces that tasted like old uni - not creamy, not sweet, not briny. When I mentioned the piece was terrible, the response was "It's from Hokkaido." I can't even count how much Hokkaido Uni I have had in my life, but again, this drek was worse than what you would expect at a supermarket take away. To their credit, they removed the Uni from the bill. Finally, I had one of their specialty rolls - the Summer Roll - a substantial dish. While it was generally good, it had a very weird texture, likely from the avocado, that kind of made the mouth feel like it was old slimy fish. I got past that and ate the roll, because its positives outweighed the weird mouthfeel, but they should really reconsider using components that together make one question if they are eating bad fish. If the meal of sashimi, a roll and tea had cost under $50, I probably would have given the place three stars. It cost $150. Unacceptable. They need to step it up, or stop trying to pass themselves off as a top line sushi joint.
We had dinner there last night Absolutely delicious Great service as well Going back soon I hope . 5stars for the hidden gym
Small intimate place! Always get Kani Nigiri Shrimp togarashi Steak togarashi
Secretly the best sushi in Chicago. Makes me miss Japonai. This location is basically only got take out.
Ordered the miso soup, spicy mono, Kano nigiri and wasabi tobiko. All were amazing. Great service. I will definitely be back.
Small but very nice restaurant. Incredibly good food. My only complaint is their maki rolls could be bigger. The eel avocado roll was my favorite, was very fresh and tasted amazing. Would definitely recommend.
I arrived here at 5pm and explained to the hostess/server that I'm dining alone this evening and immediately she led me to their sushi bar not even asking me where I would prefer to sit down. There was one small group hidden away in a corner enjoying private conversation and the restaurant was completely empty. She seemed concerned when I requested one tiny table meant for one. She said she needed to double check for Reservations and reserved tables. I get it! I hadn't made any reservations. I felt awkward as she made a point of telling me that during weekdays they aren't busy and seating isn't an issue. She said weekends they tend to get busy so I assured her I wouldn't take long to order and leave within the hour. She seemed concerned and said she didn't want me to be rushed but I only wanted maki and wasn't there for alcoholic beverages because I'm not a drinker. She let me pick the comfortable corner table and asked if I wanted bottled water or tap. I asked for tap because I knew bottled water would obviously be pricey. She seemed disappointed with my answer and I said I'm ready to order. I chose coca cola with Grenadine syrup, a side of white rice 🍚 one order of asparagus maki and one salmon maki. She asked if I'd like any beverages besides my coke and I declined. I said I'd probably order more maki later so she left the menu on my table. It didn't take long before my maki came out. Everything tasted extremely delicious and fresh but the portions were miniscule and underwhelming. The asparagus maki was $8 and the salmon similarly priced high but the portion sizes were extremely small. Rice and miso soup are sold separately and not as a maki set here. I was still hungry so against my better judgment I caved in and ordered a spicy octopus 🐙 maki. I believe this time the owner/manager came to my table with the order and announced that my spicy tuna was ready. I was worried she gave me someone else's order so I told her I had ordered octopus but she stated she meant to say octopus. My bill was exorbitant...close to $50 not including the tip and the coke doesn't include a refill. My server did ask if I'd like another cola but since it's an additional $5 and consists of a small glass full of ice it didn't seem reasonable. After I finished paying my bill I overheard another customer ask for green tea. I had no idea it was an option here or I would have loved a cup. I asked the manager for a future date if green tea 🍵 is complimentary and she gave me an angry look and asked me why would it be free?! I wasn't trying to be impolite i was simply inquiring about their policies. In Schaumburg all the authentic style Japanese restaurants served little cups of green tea free of charge to all their customers so naturally I grew accustomed to the tea being offered. She was so mean-spirited to me that I told her she was acting rude just from my inquiry. She called me rude and so I'm simply sharing my dining experience this evening that went sour. Small portions, extremely expensive food, everything is sold separately from rice to green tea to miso soup. If you come here by yourself on a weekend they will suggest you sit at their sushi bar. I just wanted a nice self treat this evening 😪 this wasn't a good experience and no need to say more. I love dining alone but I hate when restaurants treat women dining solo like unwelcomed guests. Not everyone likes to order cocktails with their meals. I'm a foodie; I love the entire dining experience from ambiance, to quality of taste, presentation, good value and the friendliness of the staff. Tonight was extremely unpleasant.

Miso soup was lukewarm with cold tofu. Was served frozen sashimi I had to peel apart, then was argued with until I just said forget it I don't want the sashimi. Waitress walked past our table 4-5 times in 15-20 minutes before we ordered anything other than soup, my partner had to flag her down to order more food and had to tell her not to walk away before taking my order. Overall the food was overpriced and not very good, the service was also sub par. And when I finally did make a complaint after 2 temperature issues on two different dishes, I was argued with. Just a very unsatisfying experience that left me still hungry and frustrated. The pasta bowl came in clutch with dinner attempt #2 try them out instead.
