Sushi
The word Ukai; means a traditional method of catching small Japanese trout by manipulating seabirds.

Sushi Ukai offers a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese style of casual eating. From sushi, sashimi, classic sushi rolls, bento boxes, and cooked Japanese dishes, our menu is focused on pleasing our customers. Our elegant, Japanese decor and friendly staff will make your visit memorable. We take great pride in the freshness of fish. Our Executive Chef hand-selects fresh fish for our daily sushi 7 days a week. If Dong cannot get the quality he desires or the price he needs to make sushi affordable for you, he will not buy it. Only the best quality at the best price guarantees to fulfill his expectations for the customer. Miso and ‘Sweet and Sour’ Soups are made fresh daily.​

My husband and I ordered 3 basic rolls, we waited at our table for over an hour and our order never came. When we asked about the delay, the reply was “we are very busy”. We left so I cannot rate the quality of the food. This restaurant seems to focus on their take out orders over dine-in customers. Definitely won’t go back.

Our favorite sushi spot by far, everyone in our family adores Sushi and the experience that Lily and her chefs provide. We love her unique recommendations, the DELICIOUS food, how FRESH everything always is, and how gracious the service always is. Can’t say enough wonderful things about sushi Ukai!

Sat in one of the private rooms near the windows and it was an overall fantastic experience. Service was top notch, food was excellent, drinks were great, and all at a reasonable price. Will definitely be coming back as I may have found my new favorite local sushi spot.

The food was great. Only downside is we waited about 15 mins before the server came to our table and got our order. Other than that, we had a nice experience.

So we decided to go here on a whim and it was absolutely outstanding. We ordered the keto lobster maki roll as an appetizer, and it was mouth-watering. The lobster tail was baked and sliced, draped over some maki rolls. It was so delicate and buttery, it was amazing. The super white tuna sashimi might have been the freshest and tastiest I've ever had. The servers were very kind, the only issue was they were a little slow toward the end. I didn't want to knock the place too hard though, because over all it was amazing. Try them out, support them, and for the love, try the keto lobster maki.

I've eaten sushi all over NYC and always eat at 5 star restaurants and this compares!!! The service was outstanding. I ordered a Bento Box, salmon and could not believe it's freshness. I will definitely be back. It's one of the few local places that has actual Japanese Sushi chef... and believe me it makes a difference... my new favorite!!

Valentine’s Day, I saw reviews online regarding service. Disregarded in hopes they had improved. Big mistake, could not juggle full restaurant. An hour plus after our arrival we had another server service and she made food start to appear. She was the only one trying to satisfy all of us that had been waiting. Plus, they were slow 30-46 just to take order. Overall service does not warrant going back.

Best Japanese cuisine I’ve had in the Chi-burbs! Can’t wait to go back. Similar price-point restaurants in the City, and equal if not better quality.

We had arranged in advance the "chef's choice". The food was outstanding - my guests were very impressed with the quality of the seafood, the presentation of the dishes, and what was put together by the chef as we went thru the evening.

The service is terrible. We waited 40 minutes for dinner and 25 minutes for drinks. They do not always get our order right, but when they do get it right, the food is amazing.
