This is one of my least favorite types of restaurants, a dive pretending to not be a dive. The dacor is run down and old, they should ditch it and make it a nice hole in the wall. The food itself was okay and the service was attentive.

One of our favorite go-to sushi spots in the city. Everything we ordered was awesome. Edamame and three rolls - Sweet & Spicy, Fire Dragon, and Can You Handle It. They were all so good in their own way. Drinks and service were excellent as well!

They had the best Gyoza I've ever had. The Ramen and Maki rolls were both amazing. The seating is a bit cramped but was never an issue once we were seated, and the service was outstanding.

We love Friends Sushi definitely a hidden gem with an awesome menu. The “Can you handle it” roll is an amazing sushi roll with a kick. We seen this restaurant out every time we are in the area. Best in Chicago we’ve had!

Friends Sushi has the best sushi in Chicago -- highly recommend. I lived in Japan and am picky about sushi and sashimi -- Friends is always fresh whether via takeout or eating in-restaurant. Love the staff, too!

I have been to Friends Sushi on two separate occasions, which were a little more than a year apart. Both times the food was excellent. We ordered appetizers and sushi rolls which were all delicious.

Seating arrangements are tight , we had a reservation for 5 people , they brought us a stool for the 5th person and when re requested a chair they said they will put us on a 6 person table but for 5 people they provide a stool

Food was good , service was fair

Very nice evening and dinner. Service was top notch and we were very well attended to. My only complaint and this is minor is that the tables are very close together which makes moving around somewhat difficult. The food is very good.

Don’t fine before 6 pm. Lights are very bright and the music is nightclub boom music that is horrendous for enjoying a nice meal. Food was good but nothing fantastic. Prices are a little high. The lights were dimmed at 6 pm which was very much appreciated but the music remained loud and disruptive.

Friends Sushi is a small neighborhood sushi restaurant with a significant though not extensive menu. I had the Friends Maki roll and my guest had chicken terriaki bento box. We both enjoyed our selections. The white on white interior ambiance and tightly spaced seating makes you feel like you are almost eating in a communal space. We went in early afternoon and there were few customers. So we were not crowded.

Lo recomiendo por la calidad de la comids. Quizá demasiado ruido y poca luz pero creo que fue ese día debido a las personas de las mesas cercanas.
