    Lived the Mount Fuji! But was jealous of my friend's bento box--a lot more food for a great price. Sticky rice is the right amount of sticky. Try the sweet potato sushi for your appetizer!

    Bento box lunch is amazing and a great deal. Bring a friend and share a bento box and some sushi...portion sizes are HUGE for the price.

    One weird/fun thing about the place is that the music is almost exclusively obscure covers of pop songs. Pay attention and you'll hear it!

    Fantastic gyoza!! The accompanying sauce is amazingly tasty. Pad See Eiw is also really good--ask for extra sauce, though.

    Walked in here on a whim, encouraged by the TripAdvisor sign in the door. It's now a regular favorite for lunch with my friend.

    Great Sushi set lunch overlooking millennium park. Especially on a chilly afternoon.
  • Jana A. Kri
    Affordable and great sushi selection. Not too authentic in my opinion - calling some varieties "sushi" was exaggeration!

    Just got back from the Hot Wok, amazing sushi. Had a Goose Island (Chicago local), and a variety of different sushi offerings. Try their Sweet Soy Eel or spicy tuna roll.

    Food was great. Our server's attitude, not so much. Don't want to wait on people? Get a different job honey, don't be a bee-atch with me.

    If you sit at the sushi bar when it is slow, sometimes the chefs will make you surprise rolls- all of which are amazing!

    So, I'm torn about this place. This may be the best sushi option in the Loop, but the service leaves much to be desired.

    Slowest service ever & I had to ask for napkins, seriously?! The staff was more concerned about eating their lunch than serving us! If you're hungry do t bother coming here...you'll never get served!
