Best Sushi in Chicago FOR SURE!
Mirai Sushi is hands down one of the best places in the city. My husband and I dine here a LOT. It's worth every penny. The food is far fresher than most sushi places in the city. We love the special cocktails too and they have a nice wine list. We highly recommend going! In the summer they have a few tables outside which is great. The service is great. They are all VERY friendly. And there is a bar upstairs and down to enjoy a cocktail at, or eat at.
They have the best spicy tuna roll in the city. And the best pieces! We love getting a few raw pieces. I would also recommend the Tuna Carpaccio Salad. Fantastic... so fresh and light! Also Kani Nigiri is to die for. Amazing and served warm. And be sure to try tne Spicy Mono and Special Sa

Best sushi in town
Hard to express properly how great my experience at Mirai was, so I will keep it short. The food was fantastic! The wait staff was well versed in all the foods and made great suggestions. The place is well decorated and even sitting at the bar, the noise level was light enough to easily have a conversation without speaking above your regular volume. We even had a chance to speak with the owner of the restaurant and she couldn't have been nicer or happier that people come and enjoy themselves at her restaurant. It's a little expensive for sushi, but it's still a good value. The only downside, and this is not an inditement of the restaurant as much as the neighborhood, is that you'll have to do valet.

The Best Sushi
- Great sushi, fresh and well prepared to order
- Drinks menu is A+++ (try the lichee or cucumber cocktail)
- Service is engaged and friendly; and willing to adjust for the more fussy palate

Sushi was outstanding. Sake
Sushi was outstanding. Sake selection seems not as good as it used to be.

Excellent service, outstanding food
If you are a sushi fan or even just casual admirer, do yourself a favor and visit Miraj Sushi. The food was outstanding; some of the best sushi I've ever had and I used to live in New York and frequent San Francisco. Service was exceptional. Our server was always on hand to refill my beer (very handy) and the entire staff was highly knowledgable about all of the plates they were serving. A+++++.

Outstanding quality. Perfect presentation. The chefs and staff were very attentive. Sit at the counter to enjoy the great offerings that were very fresh. If you enjoy great sushi, you will not be disappointed.

Great Japanese Dinner
The ingredients are first class. The presentation of the food as well as the flavor was excellent and this is one of the best Japanese Restaurant in the US.

Wonderful dining experience
This is an exceptional restaurant. The food is outstanding and the service is fatnastic. The upstairs has the best atmosphere in terms of ambience - it's quiet and dimly lit, so perfect for a romantic dinner. We will definitely return to this place.

Consistently Excellent Sushi
There may be equivalently good sushi in Chicago, but it's hard to believe that anywhere else is better. The sashimi explodes in your mouth with flavor and freshness. And the service is excellent as well. Give it a try and keep this gem in business.

I love the restaurant - 3 different options for seating (outdoor, main floor and upstairs). The sushi itself is seriously incredible. The menu is simple and almost gets straight the point. Fish was fresh and worth every penny.

Best fish in the city. Slow!!! service for a Sunday that's hard to overlook being in the industry myself. Guests need to be greeted in 3-5 minutes or less, not 10+. It would be one thing if there were more than 10 diners in the restaurant, but there wasnt. So instead I stared out the window or at the funny (their conversation) sushi guys chatting it up in Japanese. That left a horrid taste in my mouth, as it the first impression to my dining experience as a whole, and it was hard not to take it out on my server or her tip, but I certainly managed to be on my best behavior. However, it's the food that is irreplaceable and what keeps me coming back. A hiccup in the grand scheme of things, but an annoying existence regardless.

Best sushi outside of Japan!
Sit by the sushi bar and enjoy the work of the masters. Be sure to order from the chef's specials menu...your taste buds will thank you. The yellowtail (sashimi) and salmon (a chef's special, nigiri) that we ordered on our first visit was melting in our mouths as we mumbled "more, please...sir" to our sushi chefs. Our only regret is that we don't live in Chicago!

I've been to Mirai a few times
I've been to Mirai a few times now and it never disappoints! This may be one of the best sushi restaurants in the city and is certainly my favorite. We had a late dinner on a Friday evening so it was pretty quiet in the restaurant which turned out to be nice because we were able to have a quiet, low key dinner with amazing food and great service. I strongly suggest the Shrimp Togarashi and Special Salmon roll. I can't wait for my next visit to Mirai Sushi!

Monday Night Sushi Review
I went here for my 23rd birthday with some family and friends. There was a group of 5 of us. Service was great, the waitress we had was training someone but nothing went wrong. The food was fantastic. The table favorite was the Special Salmon so I definitely recommend that!

What impressed me most was the fact that the restaurant closed at 10 (unknown to me) and they stayed open while our table and another table of 4 near us were there enjoying ourselves. I felt bad for the staff because i had no idea we kept them so late but they acted like it was no big deal and they were only interested in our happiness.
