The food was outstanding. Every specialty dish we ordered was delicious and had a variety of different flavors. Since there are only a few tables in the restaurant-make a reservation! The only reason I am giving this place four

This was our second time to visit. Last time I visited with my daughter only, this time my husband joined us. Everything was fresh, extremely creative and tasty, and the service was top notch thanks to Gino! The sushi Chef's really know their stuff! Thank you!

Kizuna is my wife & I's favorite spot for sushi in the burbs. There are many decent sushi places but Kizuna stands out for it's freshness & flavor. We'll be going back regularly.

This was our second visit to Kiruna and we were not disappointed. If you like spicy the spicy miso soup is a must. The black rice is an awesome option for the rolls, the wasabi is fresh and the ginger is white. I you like sushi you'll love this place.

Excellent food. Small place so make a reservation on a Saturday. Only thing missing from the menu is a tempura appetizer. We will go back.

This place is awesome! Our favorite sushi place in Westmont closed over a year ago and we have been searching for a new one. Kizuna is the one! Everything is bursting with fresh flavor and so delicious that we would order it again. Spicy Miso Soup, Tequila roll, you name it. Do you long for black/forbidden rice? They have it! Even a simple black rice avocado roll sprinkled with sesame seeds was excellent. The restaurant is tiny so make a reservation.

My wife and I went here for a Saturday night date a few days ago, after seeing positive reviews on Open Table. The restaurant was small with two giant TV's along one wall - one of which was on the SYFY channel. Hard to eat sushi while that is flashing in the corner of your eye, so I only gave them 4 stars for ambiance. The service was extremely pleasant and friendly. Our waiter gave us his recommendations for what to eat and they were honestly spot on. The food was great! We ordered the shumai dumplings, which were awesome... warm, spicy, and with great texture and shrimp flavor. The seaweed salad was fresh and had just a perfect amount of acid. Then we ordered two of the special rolls and they were both outstanding in terms of flavor and presentation - nothing was derivative like you get at most sushi restaurants... spicy tuna rolls are the same everywhere, am I right? Then came the sashimi sampler. The fish was so fresh and clean. The portions were generous as well. Yellowtail, red snapper, tuna (escolar and maguro) - all great!! There was even octopus (which I have found at other places to be like chewing on a piece of rubber) which was tender and clean - served with a slice of lemon which was a great accompaniment. We were full but not over stuffed. We even had mocha for desert, which was a nice finish. The chef came over to "apologize" for the sashimi coming out late (which it wasn't) but it was such a kind gesture. I have never had sushi of this quality and creativity anywhere in Chicagoland. We will be going back on the regular!

I googled to find a Sushi restaurant close by that I hadn't been to. Took my son to dinner there for his birthday. I arrived early for our reservation and got to talk with Gino who greeted me when I arrived. He was extremely pleasant. Made personal recommendation for rolls that weren't on the menu. Definitely would go again. Hope the Kizuna will be open for lunch soon.

I can’t believe we waited to try this restaurant. Incredible service! Exquisite presentation on everything we ordered. Sushi and daily special rolls were some of the best I have ever had. Cheers to the owners and staff! This is our new favorite!

Haven't had such a great dining experience like this in awhile. great food, great service. The chef and staff (Gino) really care about you having a good experience. very fresh. the chef is very talented, laying flavors and creating light sauces to complement the fresh fish without overwhelming-one roll had edible flowers. The traditional rolls are very good and clean tasting also. The chef's creative rolls are excellent and tightly rolled-NOT a chunky lump you have to unhinge your jaw to eat. My family loves sushi and everything we had was more than just good-it was different and surprising. Service was excellent. Great saki and beer list. Get the tequila roll and you will understand.

Gino is probably the best server I’ve ever had! So friendly, professional and knowledgeable! The food was delicious. Poke taco was an interesting take on a favorite, shishito peppers were flavorful with just the right amount of spice. We tried the two specials, the mafia roll and the Karma roll. The specials were my favorite. The island one with lemons, I’ve never tasted anything like it! I forgot what the other one was called but I wanted to eat the sauce with a spoon when the roll was gone. I can’t wait to try out more of the menu and visit with Gino again! Even my kids said, “I really liked that waiter!” Must have been all the Tranformers talk. I’ve never had a meal that lived up to such wonderful Yelp reviews before!
