Foursquare Tips

  • The cheesecakes here are great. Matcha green tea latte cheesecake is AMAZING!
  • They are getting ready for patio season, but dining room's high ceilings give interior airy feeling. Gorgeous and delicious sushi.
  • Best tofu I have had
  • Authentic Japanese with a good mix of of noodles, ramen and rice dishes. The edamame is prepped with garlic and spice - nice! Good selection of specialty maki. Small selection of Japanese beers.
  • I know there are several pictures of this mural but I can't help it, it's gorgeous.
  • Sushi is good, but many other hot dishes including the appetizers are awesome. Bacon-wrapped tomatoes, lollipop chicken and spicy ramen.
  • Go for the ramen at lunch! $10 with salad and a couple of gyozas. The Chicago making roll is great too.
  • Try any of the ramen! You won't go wrong
  • Get the Sloopin specialty maki. Super good!
  • Get the Sloopin Maki. Trust me!
  • New place open in jan.??? Great ramen and donburi
  • Good sashimi
  • Sushi fish was very fresh.
  • Takeout was great
  • miso ramen was to die for :)
  • Nice restaurant, okay service and tasty food. I enjoyed it myself! It's pretty close to Hilton Chicago (and therefore from Magnificent mile it's not too far)
  • Nice food. Okay service. Good location! Specially recommended: the miso soup :-)
  • In the summer, get the chilled udon noodles; in winter, get ramen. Yum!
  • Close to home and great takeout sushi. Prices aren't too bad either.
  • The Ramen is excellent. The sushi is just fine, but the hamachi kama was overdone by a lot.
