This is my go to place in Champaign, the owner is always on site orchestrating a well run dining experience. I don't do uncooked sushi so I can't comment on it, I've enjoyed everything I have tried and I enjoy the draft beer selection.

We were a foursome. Our guests had never dined at KoFusion before. They were very impressed, as were we.

The quality of the food, service, and ambience was SUPERB in every way. Already looking forward to dining at KoFusion again -- soon!

We had a pleasant dining experience. Our server was excellent. The resteraunt was clean and had a good atmosphere.

The one unfortunate aspect was the cost. Two people shouldn't spend $100 and leave hungry. One entree was $32 and consisted of 16 pieces of fish the size of quarters.

Was enjoyable for the occasion but don't see it as a repeatable place to eat.

Our server Dustin was amazing. He came to our table several times to make sure everything was okay. He had a great sense of humor. He made my son’s birthday memorable.

The sushi was very tasty. We especially loved the tamago and unagi. My only regret is that they didn’t have teriyaki chicken for my daughter. We will definitely visit the restaurant again when we visit my son at UIUC.

It was Dollar Sushi Night at Kofusion and the restaurant was nearly fulll. Service was both excellent and prompt. The sushi is verygood and sitting outside works best. (its too noisy inside.)

I've been going to KoFusion for many years & the patio cannot be beat! Menus have changed several times -- my favorite red wines by the glass are gone -- but fortunately a new sushi roll Fuji Snow has been added with white tuna & asparagus, microgreens etc. This is a perfect choice if you prefer simple & not gloppy or fried with sauces etc. Quality of the fish in both nigiri and sushi is very high. Salad was overdressed, but attentive waiter insisted on bringing a fresh batch of edamame that our party appreciated. Still a top choice for sushi in Champaign!

Awesome meal. Cody was a great server. We had outdoor seating but it started to rain so we moved inside. The food and drinks as well as the deserts were great. We’ll definitely go back next time we are down in Champaign. We had the sushi, you can’t go wrong here.

We had reservations on Mother's Day (2019). Our reservations were around 6:30 pm. Restaurant was full but not overcrowded. Several families with school age and pre-teen children. Service was fast. Food as always was excellent. Bought a nice bottle of Zinfandel at a reasonable price, however it was a little sweet for even a Zin. Only issue is pricing. All entrees are at least $18 and drinks are often $5-6$/beer. Wine by the glass is $9 minimum. Hor d'eurves are minimum $8 and often $10 to $14. Bill with tip for a dinner for two people is consistently at or over $100.00. This always seems a little out of whack for the amount of food received and charges for beer and wine compared to other venues for similar dining (dinner meal) in downtown Champaign.

The sushi, the vegetable stir fry and the Panang curry were absolutely delicious! Our server was excellent. We were seated as a party of 9 in the side room and it was so nice because we could talk with everyone at the table because it was quiet. We had a great evening!
