    Food was very good except for the happy hour options. Service was great. Music was way too loud and awful.

    Just fine sushi place but way over priced for quality, lack of ambiance (fake plants do not scream high end sushi), and overall dining experience. Servers are good and attentive but should have known the partnership with Mallort is not going to be the fine dining experience we were hoping for. In the west loop but not west loop quality. Would not good again. Skip and go to Sunda, butterfly sushi or miku in Lincoln square.

    I have lived in Chicago 64 years and I’ve eaten sushi everywhere. The sushi at.Jinsei Motto is the best I have had. The spicy scallop roll was so unique and delicious. I also highly recommend the bluefin tuna roll. The cocktails pure perfect with the food. I will recommend this to my friends and make this a regular when I go for sushi..

    Very tasty sushi although I thought that two of the specialty Makis were just too big to comfortably eat without biting — and then having them fall apart. The spicy scallops were better in this regard but the topping was also hard to eat with chopsticks. The ratio of quality to value struck me a bit off too since I thought our bill was pretty high for what we got. My guest and I also thought that each of us getting one tiny mochi each for dessert was chintzy. Overall good experience though.
