new to sushiWe are new to eating sushi - so our server was excellent in giving us tips on what to order. However, if you don't like sushi, you have lots of other options. We especially liked the wide rice noodle dishes. We also tried the tempura vegetables - the dish was very light and great tasting. We will certainly be back here again soon.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a great value for theJust a great value for the buck and superb food. We licked our plates.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Night!!!Celebration was in full force for two friends having birthdays... waiter was great with recommendations and details to menu items. I have never, ever had a bad meal here! Wines were affordable and we closed down the place. And the nicest thing is they didn't turn on the lights or start sweeping the floors to get rid of us. Great place to celebrate any occasion; the menu accommodates kids, sushi lovers as well as non-sushi lovers!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPL8 Always Great!PL8 has to be our favorite Barrington restaurant!

This was our first dining experience here and while our table was ready, they offered to hold it while we had a drink at the bar! After drinks we headed to our table where we trusted the server for ll of his recommendations off the menu. The blood orange martini was divine.
The cold peanut noodle and 7 seasoning chicken were incredible! Our sushi was equally delicious!
Decor was hip, vibrant Asian fusion... Cool downtown feel in the suburbs!
