    The Bulls Roll is delicious, but I (a small girl) finished it very easily by myself, and it was $20

    This place is just fine - nothing memorably good or bad on the menu. Stick with the sashimi for better bang for your buck.

    Too expensive for the quality. The shrimp tempura roll smelled really fishy. I think the best route is to get nigiri or sashimi.

    The owners are so appreciative. Go long, be social with staff, and complimentary treats will arrive at your table.

    Get here before 7:30 on a Friday night for a table. Also has patio seating with a lovely view of a Jewel-Osco.

    Bug in our edamame, left after appetizer. Didn't trust them to serve raw fish after that.

    Osan is the man. This place rules. Low key, great sushi, good value. Don't listen to the haters.

    Not impressed... Sushi is very average and if you are expecting the Foursquare discount as advertised... forget it. Nobody knows anything about it!!!

    This place has gone way downhill in the past 2-3 years. The staff is unfriendly, and the food is overpriced. It used to be my fav sushi in the hood, but I'll never go back. Go to Lips instead.

    My tip? Don't waste your money. Sushi is too expensive to accept average and that's all this place is: average. Bland miso, salads and maki rolls.

    have the danny's super awesome roll. I know the man it was named after, he's just as awesome as the roll.
