Foursquare Tips

  • Volcano roll, Japanese fried noodle, and miso soup all good. Very quiet for a Weekend night might mean a repeat visit in order soon.
  • a sushi spot that serves fresh, no nonsense sushi. Sit at the sushi bar. The chef is friendly and helps you pick the best pieces of the day
  • Comfortable no-nonsense spot has a rabid following for honest fresh maki and sashimi in creative presentations. We liked the Ahi poke, spicy white tuna crunch maki and pan-fried scallops.
  • Really good rolls! Particularly enjoyed the volcano, crazy maki, and the spicy creamy taco maki.
  • Sit at the Sushi Bar and get to know Jim-san. What a wonderfully attentive staff. We come here frequently. We are big nagiri and sashimi eaters. The sushi is always fresh and top notch.
  • Spicy crunch tuna roll.
  • I lived in chicago over 10 years ago and loved their tuna masago roll. I still think about it!
  • A few faves...Spicy Creamy Tako Maki, Uni, Ikura, Spicy Creamy Scallop nigiri, Kani Uni. Delish! Oldie but still good :)
