    If you're into raw fish, get the king crab nigiri- definitely worth it!

    Fantastic sushi! The Sweet and Spicy roll was very tasty and all of the Nigiri was delicious! Incredibly comfy chairs as well!

    Can You Handle It? roll is a must. It is delicious with a nice kick of heat. Many of the rolls come with 10 or so pieces which is a lot so keep this mind when ordering. We were stuffed!

    Small, intimate setting. Definitely make a reservation on Fri or Sat. Great specialty rolls, the chefs are great

    The iced green tea (matcha) is really good. Also they have green tea ice cream if that is more your jam.

    Best modern sushi ever! The service is amazing, the food is delicious and the place is wonderful too. The Tune Lover and Can you handle it rolls are a must!

    Unless you are darn lucky (we were!) you better have a reservation. Tiny and very crowded, but awesome sushi.

    Devil's Roll and Friends Roll are both really great and different from each other to satisfy the spicy fresh (devils) and sweet tempura (friends). Get them both!

    Angela Quigley · August 26, 2013
  • Kaitlin B.

    Amazing! Two best sushi rolls We've ever had-umi and friends rolls. Vegetable dumplings were also delicious.

    Kaitlin Borell · August 18, 2013

    Mediocre but decently priced sushi. Fish could be a little more fresh.

    Jin Chen · July 23, 2013
  • Adam C.

    One of my favorite Sushi restaurants - always visit when I come to Chicago. Umi roll is great but if you love crab and avocado try the Jazz roll

    Adam Chesterton · July 11, 2013

    Order sreaded salmon signature roll! Spicy for spanish standards but tasty! They close early at night and they do not hide their intensions of kicking you out!

    Maria Sánchez · May 28, 2013
  • Amilia C.

    Friends and Umi rolls are the best!!

    Don't expect comfortable seating- the chairs are super awkward but the sushi is great. I'm bringing my own stadium chair next time I come.

    Manal S · March 23, 2013

    Try at least one of the Friends Signatures. Big Friends is awesome. It seems one needs come here a few times to begin to appreciate fully.

    Small area but usually not that busy. Bring your Wikipedia app though because most menu items are in Japanese. Crunch and Cream Roll is Great!

    Try the Jimmai roll!

    Claude Harrison · January 26, 2012

    UMI roll is seriously to die for

    Alison Branstetter · December 21, 2011
  • David B.

    The "can you handle it" roll is too much to handle... Sooo much heat and I like spicy food.

    David Bohn · December 18, 2011
  • Andreas L.

    You have to try the creamy spicy tuna! Amazingly good!

    Andreas Lihv · December 6, 2011

    Be prepared to wait. RSVP system SUCKS. Had to wait and watch several parties sit before we finally got a table.

    Jonathan Mendoza · June 10, 2011
