Amazing food and their lychee martini is STELLAR! The location is a little pricy (I paid $100 for 1 alcoholic beverage, 4 sushi rolls and tip), but worth the expense. Would recommend for a date night and would certainly come back (especially for that martini)....More

This is a great restaurant. It is small and attractive, nice but casual enough, a go to place for birthday or special occasion in my family. The sushi rolls are unusual and many are spectacular. The desserts are also great.

A wonderful Japanese restaurant that serves sushi and tempura to savor! We have always been leery of sushi but know this restaurant if of top quality. The sushi is the freshest around and is rolled at an open prep counter.

While I only ordered take out, it was so good I wanted to comment. Very fresh and priced right for what you get. I ordered a variety of sushi and all were great. I will definitely go back.

We had spider roll, spicy tuna, beef with asparagus, and calamari. Some of the dishes came with cream cheese. An odd ingredient for Japanese food. The staff was very accommodating, however, and mad it without. Very good.

Went for dinner last night prior to visiting someone at Evanston Hospital. Didn't feel like entrees so had a number of appetizers. Mrs Willie felt like Calamari - I was hoping that this would be lightly breaded but it was not. Not a good choice....More

Food here is delicious. We have been here several times and it just gets better and better. I ordered an appetizer and it was a nice size portion.

Really enjoyed our second visit to this sushi restaurant. The waiter was amusing, friendly and very attentive. The food was delicious. Excellent miso soup, seaweed salad, my favorite sushi was the the creamy lobster tempura and my wife's favourite was the salmon and tuna roll....More
