This is a long time favorite in Old Town. It is consistently high-quality food, with good service, and comfortable for conversation. Reasonably priced.

Too loud, sashimi over chilled (but presentation very nice), and server (while delightful) got the order wrong.

If you want to be a GREAT sushi place as I once recall you were, raw fish temperature is very important to enjoying sushi/sashimi.

And....no reaction to the fact we were celebrating a birthday.

The ambience is very inviting and relaxed, but can be a bit noisy depending on who else is sitting near you. We had a mother and young daughter near us and the mother didn't know how to use her "inside voice." The staff is very nice and attentive, and the food is exceptional!

My brother and I came here to celebrate his 30th birthday. Aurora did a great job serving us and making us feel welcome. She was kind, attentive and a great representative of the restaurant. We ordered dumplings (pork and shrimp), as well as a few sushi rolls. Everything was fantastic! Aurora also brought over mochi balls for my brothers birthday to cap off the celebration. Next time we’re wanting sushi, we will definitely be back!

We were upstairs with big groups.
It was very noisy.
There was a waiter, we wonder if it was his first day. He definitely didn’t have any experience.

What a great find. I’ve been going to this area for years and didn’t know this restaurant existed. Great food and a restaurant that feels more like Japan than Chicago. Highly recommend!

My partner and I visited for my birthday. We got fried tofu to start, the udon bowls for our main and we split the Dragon sushi roll. Absolutely amazing and well worth the price, which was far cheaper than you’d expect for Chicago.

Good/average quality sushi. The chocolate lava cake was my favorite. Service was very slow on a busy Saturday night - not uncommon in Chicago post-(during-)COVID.

Food was just not that great. Asparagus/beef rolls were so overdone, couldn’t eat more than one. Shrimp was too fishy. The rolls weren’t great. Not a lot of flavor

We had been there before, and liked it, but our experience last night was great. My girlfriend loved the Sake the server recommended (Black Dragon under Aromatic), and the Gyoza stood out among the edibles.
