    The robata grill items are better than the sushi. Try the tuna miso, pork shoulder, and short rib - they are not to be missed!

    My friend & myself shared Boy meets World (yum!), my fave Midwest roll, Motown & Dragon. We liked all. Fresh& delicious! This place is reasonably priced for such great food.

    All the rolls looked amazing and were. I liked the chicago roll and Motown effect. Byob too. The Robata grill was pretty good too. Very cheap good food

    One of the most creative sushi's I've ever seen. The prices are not expensive at all for what they serve and the food is delicious. BYOB is a great option too!

    The best reasonably priced sushi restaurant in Chicago. If you don't want to spend more than $30 per person, this is your best bet. They recently expanded, which reduced wait times by a lot.

    Gyoza and shrimp tempura rolls were alright. Pier 69, i did not like. Chicago roll was REALLY good! My husband ordered the Robata #2 and enjoyed it. Miso soup is really good here too, very flavorful.

    Been here at least ten times, and the food is consistently good. Start with the robata: 'chicken satay' (with rice pearls), 'beef short rib', and 'shishito'. Finish with 'maguro' and 'hamachi' nigiri.

    Food- great, service- great, however if you call and ask about reservations and they say "we don't take them anymore" they mean for the night so don't go and expect to put your name on a list

    offers a cozy locale for those looking to fill up on deliciously simple fare that’s best enjoyed with cold brews. The restaurant is also temporarily BYOB. Read more

    It lives up to the hype, the sushi is the best in Chicago. Get The Big Chill and the tuna poke appetizer. You won't be disappointed.

    BYOB! This little gem is always packed for dinner. The rolls are both works of delectable art and reasonably priced! A new favorite.

    BYOB and their specialty rolls come with some wildly saucy artwork. Edamame bowl is huge. Monster Dragon is delish.
  • Elly V.
    Don't miss out on the robata! Order one of each. Jumbo sushi rolls are so big you'll have to unhinge your jaw.

    This is a nice neighborhood-level sushi place, with the st marks place hipster upgrade package (hip-hop, etc)

    All show and no fish. The rolls are 80% rice and some cooked fish on the side. I didn't see a roll with actual raw fish in the whole restaurant.

    You can't go wrong with any of the specialty rolls. Everything from the food to the service is excellent.

    Expect good service and a fun time, in a loud place with only passable sushi. Second best place in the area

    It's not often you find a fun BYO with great sushi and get to listen to T.R.O.Y. at the same time. The food from the grill was good too. Definitely will be back.

    Everyone–including the fedora-clad chefs–seems gleeful at this chummy BYO. Maybe the thumping hip-hop anthems have something to do with this.
