    Loved the Tuna on Top roll! Seriously one of the best sushi places I have ever been to. Definitely going back on my next trip to Chicago! Our waiter was also very knowledgeable and accommodating.

    I really like Dragon rolls here and spicy shrimp,which are amazing. Service is very nice and helpful. Also, they have a lot of tables, so you are less likely to wait.

    The firecracker roll is one of the best I've ever had anywhere. If it's a special, you must try.

    Cheap and chic sushi bar. Loved the dragon roll and crispy spicy tuna. Order the raspberry and white chocolate mochi-dont bother with the chocolate chip

    Get the super white ginger! Not on the menu but they'll make it for ya. And try Uzura- it's a raw quail egg so it might seem off putting but it's so delicious!

    When I checked in I read the reviews about the white dragon. It looked like the best bet so I ordered and it hands down was the best. And I've been to japan! Coming back just for this roll.

    Interesting policy - if they deliver the wrong roll and remake it you are charged for both rolls if you've had more than one piece because that means 'it was acceptable.' I don't think I'll be back

    The place is "intimate" but I think it's overcrowded and felt like I was on a date with the couple next to us. Sushi is very good though.

    Ugh. loved this place since it opened. had raging bday parties here. dreamt about the white dragon. But the past 2 years the service has been so disappointingly slow. #TooMuchGoodSushiTooWaitThisLong

    Must try the Toro (fatty tuna) sashimi or nigiri. I think it's so good sashimi style is sufficient. No rice needed!!!

    Zagat has the menu but expect to pay $1~2 more for each item when you finally arrive. Plus, the nigiri is actually PER item, not two-fer. I walked away spending nearly twice what I expected.
