Try our unique omakase where our chefs will work around your restrictions to course out a mix of traditional, and non-traditional, fare. With signature dishes like our fish & chips and bluefin truffle sashimi, dressed nigiri pieces, and our off menu "special rolls", let our chefs take care of you. Otherwise, order from the menu with many small-bite options, nigiri/sashimi, maki, entrees, or order the chef special rolls à la carte. We pride ourselves on our fish quality. We also have vegetarian off menu special rolls and many vegetarian options!

We have a full bar, which features a full selection of Japanese whisky, sake, cocktails, and more.

Also, since this comes up so often, all of the (many, many) plants throughout the restaurant are real!






We have no affiliation with any other Tanoshii and Sushi Mike

    Food was awesome. Ambiance awesome. Our waiter was doing the best he could but staff was thin. I felt badly for him but nevertheless we had a great time. I think post pandemic has had an effect on staffing. A++ on the food.

    A very approachable restaurant. I was hoping it would be a bit more fancy as this was a surprise plan for a date for New Years Eve, but it’s a bit more relaxed. The food is good and fresh. The chef’s special is definitely the way to go for rolls.

    Our server was wonderful and welcoming. Kept drinks and water refilled. Paid attention to our preferences. The fish was very fresh and beautifully prepared. Very subtle flavors. The menu is fairly small. The only negative was the parking. Very limited and if you do get a spot it can be quite tricky getting out. Limited room to maneuver. Not for large SUVs.

    Lovely food, Japanese but with some non-traditional ingredients. Friendly and efficient service. We ordered there two most expensive sakes. I would.encourage them to add a few or high end sakes, and ditto for wines.

    Very disappointing! Appetizer (shrimp tempura) was the only tasty item we had. All rolls and nigiri were no better than what you get at the supermarket (for a fraction of the price). To make things worse, it took additional 25 minutes to get the last nigiri we ordered.

    A colleague recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious! I also loved all the plants we were surrounded by. I’m planning to add some of the plants I saw to my home. My son enjoyed it also. The waiter was very attentive, but that was not difficult as we were the only patrons in the restaurant at the time. 😏

    Excellent omakase experience. Each course was delicious, fresh and balanced. Service was excellent. Ambiance is quieter and more relaxed than many other spots in the west loop area, which is nice. Will be back for another special occasion in the future!

    Ate here for the first time ever, last night! Had a reunion dinner with 2 of my best friends/ex-coworkers/ ex-golfing buddies. This place was recommended by 1 of them who lives in Old Town! Great choice! Our server, Dave, did an excellent job on recommending the best drinks and entrees to us!! He was also very attentive, professional and fun to interact with the whole night! We had 4 appetizers: veggie gyoza, veggie tempura, bluefin sashimi tuna and edamame. For entrees, 2 of us had the sushi/nigiri omakase and our Old Town friend had the maki roll omakase; everything was fresh, beautifully presented and delicious! The drinks here were great too; I loved the Elderberry Martini which was flavorful and had just the right amount of horsepower to keep me buzzed throughout dinner and all the way to bed! I would definitely come back here with my friends and order even more food than we did before!

    Great vibe,friendly service. Delicious and fresh fish! Got the Omakase - which is what most people were getting. It was very good but definitely not a traditional omakase. Focuses much more on their special off-menu rolls rather than Individual pieces/tastes. They were delicious - only criticism is that some of the sauces overpowered the taste of the fish. Would definitely go back there.

    Typically we have a great time here however this last time- the rolls were sub par. I specifically asked for tuna or octopus and they sent us a shrimp roll. Paying $25 for a shrimp roll is ridiculous and we sent it back.
