Foursquare Tips

  • Let's just say, I'm Asian and I know my good sushi. The Midwest blows in the majority of their sushi restaurants but this place is rules!! Don't tell anybody about this place.
  • Best Sushi experience I have ever had, Jiro would be proud
  • The Orange Rush is conceivably the best single food item I've ever eaten. Also consider the Escolar Pearls and Green Monster.
  • Try the house-made tofu with okra, dashi and a tumbleweed of shaved bonito, then add few drops of soy sauce to enliven the delicate flavors:
  • I always let the Chef's create for me ("Omakase") but don't leave without trying the Orange Rush and homemade cheesecake!
  • Amazing!! Angry crab!!! Rules
  • Best sushi in Chicago. Do the Omakase!
  • Make a reservation and show up on time.
  • The escolar was the best sashimi I've ever had. The Orange Rush was one of the greatest bites of food I've ever had.
  • Best sushi in Chicago. Amazing bites of fresh fish in inventive preparations. I love this place. Basically order every roll on the menu, both pearl apps, and try the specials!
  • escolar pearls are a must.
  • The food is great, but the water is always room temperature. I need my water to be cold!
  • Everything is delicious here...the best!!!
  • Easily the best sushi place in Chicago. Flavor combination is unique yet pleasant. I love sitting by the kitchen bar so I get to watch food getting prepared. Reservation system is not the best though.
  • Good Japanese dishes. Liked the seating area
  • Its flown in fresh to this Humboldt Park hot spot. Not only that; its served up with scallop, quail egg and ponzu sauce. Were salivating at the thought.

  • It's pricey but I love all of dishes on the menu! Highly recommend the uni shooter and green monster
  • One of the best place in Chicago. Total hole in the wall. If you are visiting for the first time, get Omakase aka chef's choice. Mind-blowing experience.
