Foursquare Tips

  • Try the chefs selection steak from our 100 Best list: Go for the chefs selection, theyre beautifully marbled, expertly grilled over Japanese binchotan charcoal, and the best value in the house.
  • Penny Pollack says, "Wagyu gunkan @RokaAkorChi with green onion and caviar is a tasty way for tartare lovers to indulge."
  • Try the largest Sake list in the Midwest.
  • Pork belly is succulent, and the teriyaki salmon is great also. Some really good sake as well (quite a large and diverse list to choose from).
  • Be sure to request to be seated in the main dining room if you want to enjoy the full experience of the restaurant rather than the bar scene.
  • Food is amazing! Service is amazing! Definitely recommend the asparagus and the skirt steak! The sushi is amazing as well! I was VERY pleased with everything this establishment had to offer.
  • The yellowtail sashimi appetizer, mango four ways sushi roll, and black cod entree are the best things on the menu. This place is absolutely delicious and has the coolest female DJ on Friday nights :)
  • It's hard to just pick one thing. The New York strip steak is amazing with the truffles! Must have dessert, it's melt in your mouth goodness.
  • Get the himachi Serrano sushi, wagu beef dumplings, beef tataki with truffle sauce and black cod!!
  • Order the pork belly, you won't regret it. I normally get two orders just for myself!
  • The black cod is amazing!
  • Try the daily sashimi and nigiri deluxe platters
  • Try the Blood Orange margarita with hand cut ice. It is to die for!
  • Chicago Magazine says the pork belly bites served with marinated beets are "tender as hell." How can you say no to that?
  • Sushi & steak - now that is a great combo. Good wine list, nice atmosphere and great food. Get the Wagyu Beef and Kimchi Dumplings, Beef tataki w/ black truffle and Butterfish tataki for appetizers.
  • Everything off the grill is a winner: The pork belly appetizer ($12.50) and pork rib entree ($19.50) are slow-cooked in mustard sauce and seared on the grill; a light hoisin glaze finishes the ribs.
  • Went to their lunch testing. Awesome service and food. Will definitely go back!
  • Bone I'n Rib Eye with shaved black truffles.
  • My favorite place, love fish here and shrimps
  • Prime rib good. But only given 8 slices. Had to go eat at Halal Guys afterward.
