Nice food overall, but service really needs work. Upon initial seating, we waited over 10 minutes while waitstaff ignored us. Had to ask multiple times for water, refills, etc. They seemed disorganized. Food was great, though, so I think the service issues were an aberration.

Went here for Valentines Day. My husband ordered a sushi combo platter. The waiter told us three times they were running behind with it. I got my meal and finished it. He never got his food. We asked for the check after an hour and left to get him something to eat at another restaurant. Not a happy occasion. Will not be returning.

The food was amazing and the experience was nice, but our server just never seemed to pay attention to our table. Our food came out at different times, almost a half hour apart from the first dish to the last. It was unfortunate that some people had to watch others eat while patiently waiting for food. After eating, our server didn't drop our checks for nearly an hour; Only after one of our party went to find her.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and it has never disappointed. The sushi is always high quality. Just as good if not better than restaurants in any big city.
This evening was dads weekend at the University of Illinois and even though they were extremely busy it did not make a difference to the quality of the food or our service.
I would highly recommend this restaurant!!

We got sat and then forced to move, didn’t even acknowledge it was a birthday when I put it on the reso, and our waiter kept running away from the table. Plus half our table had messed up orders. Food was good but overall it wasn’t the best experience.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. However, we were there for lunch and partook of the buffet. They only had one kind of sushi available and it was not one of their better offerings. When they first started having the buffet at lunch, the food was good. Now, not so much. Their Dollar Sushi Nights on Sunday and Monday are still the best.

The timing of delivery of our orders was not good. 2 people received their orders, 5 minutes later 2 more people received their orders and the Miso soup was among the last of the items to come out. Lousy timing by the kitchen in my opinion.

We recently traveled cross-country and found ourselves in Champaign, IL . We were tired after 3 long days of driving. We remembered a restaurant that we had tried probably 3-4 years ago but couldn't remember the name but we knew more or less where it was located. It was KoFusion and our recent meal was absolutely fabulous as was our waitress who went out of her way to accommodate us. Delicious food - and drinks. Highly recommended!

Rolls were very good. The "hot rolls" did not have as much heat as we hoped, but we're very good. We had a nice bottle of rose and the service was excellent. Highly recommend for a "downstate" sushi restaurant.

Celebrated Mother’s Day and had our 4 year old with us. Our server was amazing and also attentive to our toddler’s needs which made our visit great that night (the food is *always* awesome, that’s why we come so often!). Your restaurant is our top recommendation to friends and family from out of state and our favorite place to celebrate social occasions!

We were a family of 20 for graduation party, they gave us a private room which was nice and quiet but the tables’ setup was just simple , overall the private dining room was more like a meeting room than a dining room, no ambiance . No flower or wine glasses . They could have done better to decorate the tables. The private dining room is just a large room with some large tables. The service was excellent, we had 2 dedicated waitresses who attended our whole stay. The food was delicious but a bit overpriced. I’m not sure if the menu price for a large group is more expensive. Overa all, I recommend this place for a small or large groups.
