Tanoshii - West Loop
Great sushi...go ahead and let them make you a specialty roll. Sparkling rose' is good as well.
Delicious, creative Sushi.. amazing wine selection.. cocktails superb.. very chill vibe...
My favorite sushi place in Chicago. Never disappoints!!
Overpriced omakase. Lack of innovative rolls
Very fun spot where the chef picks the rolls for you. Never had a bad experience and clients love doing the chefs pick
I never leave reviews. I’ve lived in Chicago for 5 years and tried countless sushi spots. Hands down best Omakase I’ve ever had. Great service, perfect amount of food. Every bite better than the next. Can’t wait to go back
The food was amazing! We did the Omakase dinner where the courses are determined by the chef, which I would highly recommend. Not only were the selections delicious, we also received some off menu options. My only criticism of the entire dinner was that we had several rolls that included truffle oil - they were all good, but 3 different rolls all with truffle oil was a bit much.
Had the full omakase and it was a bunch of food!!! Would have preferred smaller rolls and more variety. Aesthetically, tasty and interesting rolls. I'm always suspicious of ground up fish "paste", and I hate Pollock masking itself as "krab" (for $200 for 2 people, it should be CRAB) but everything tasted good. Loved that they didn't serve soy sauce and saved Americans from drowning delicate fish!!!!!!
Went there with a couple friends. We got the dragon roll and 3 chef special roll which they chef decides what to make. They were all very delicious and we were pleasantly surprised by all the chef specials.
We will be back again! Great prices and great fish. I loved the squid and the salmon. The negi hamachi roll was fantastic. And we received a complimentary sliced mango for dessert, which was the most perfectly ripe mango we’ve ever had.
Hidden Gem for sushi in West Loop
The best sushi ever!
Sushi was fantastic! Ask the wait staff of options not on the menu.
This is the best sushi in the city. The specialty chef’s choice rolls are amazing. You can 100% trust they will make every bite delicious.
I highly recommend trying the Sushi Mike specialty rolls, they were so good.
The hamachi Kama was awesome and saved the meal. Very tender and flavorful. The chef sushi was underwhelming and I was not a fan of not being able to specify what I loved or didn’t. And not sure what goes into the pricing. Was surprised our tuna etc sushi was on the higher end of the pricing.
Sushi I was floored by the quality
I highly recommend just going the Omakase route.
Decided to try this place, glad we did. Not an extensive menu, which for a modern sushi place, is unusual. Usually they are throwing the kitchen sink at you.
Affordable and some creative fun from the chef. We ordered 2 rolls, 1 custom roll, 4 types of sashimi, and 3 drinks and the bill was just over $100. Yay!!!
Would go back, however, the ambiance is not my fav ... did enjoy that it was quiet though.
Very good sushi, especially the signature rolls served omakase were excellent.
Hidden gem in west loop. Say no mushrooms bc you don’t want mushroom roll. Only get the mikes chefs rolls and a couple basic rolls. Gyoza was great too!
We tried the Omakase (chef’s choice) meal. It’s always fun to have the chef choose the menu, and the selections were very good. Nice mix of fish varieties and sauces / treatments. Maybe not the best value for money, but solid. Attentive waiter, though sometimes had to wait for him to be within sight / reachable. Very quiet, sat near the front. Seemed a bit more lively in back.
Service was weak. Server would disappear for long intervals.
The restaurant has a good vibe. Loved the exquisite food and tableware. The sashimis are absolutely amazing! We’ve also tried a chef’s special roll and it was one of the best I’ve had in Chicago.
I had been previously and was blown away. This time was good, but not great.
This sushi is ridiculously amazing. It’s not just fish and rice. The chefs artistically construct rolls like you’ve never dreamed of! And very accommodating to food restrictions. We had a truly awesome evening. Can’t recommend enough.
Great sushi. Great service. Great neighborhood spot. Can’t go wrong with this place. Hoping to come back often!
Great food and great service, will be going back again.
The sushi was delicious! Loved the Randolph Street!
This was a perfect place to catch up with old friends over some quality sushi and sake. The service was very helpful and the atmosphere was conducive to conversation. Both friends said they'd definitely be back. Thanks!
İ didn’t feel anything special about that place. Tried Omakase experience. Chef’s choice was pretty ordinary, nothing special: either taste or presentation. Table area is not cozy. Yes,pretty big distance among tables that gives you privacy, but no cozy feeling at all...
We had a wonderful time enjoying the Omakase offerings. The overall ambiance was perfect for a birthday date night.
Outstanding Omakase option, great service
Food was incredible but service was slow and inattentive - had to wave server down for even the most basic requests, he never checked on us after food was served, apps came out after mains, one persons food didn’t come until everyone else was served, bus boy was more helpful than server. But again - specialty roll was absolutely incredible, scallop appetizer was delicious, and fish was fresh
Great experience! Ordered the omakase and it was some of the most flavorful dishes we’ve ever eaten. Service was equally as great. Ambience/restaurant set up is a little lacking... as is the wine list - but overall great experience and we’ll be back.
Never disappointed in the quality of the fish or the incredible Chefs Choice. Amazing staff!
It was nice to have a low key place to eat sushi in the neighborhood. The food was fresh and the staff was very friendly even dealing with an allergy. Will definitely frequent this establishment when wanting a great dinner that’s not a production.
We were 15min late to our reservation and they still accommodated us. The butternut squash soup with lobster, scallops and mushroom and hamachi Kama was the best appetizers we ever had. The waiter recommended us to try the Sushi Mikes Special... amazing balanced umami flavors!
Will be returning again in the future
Great food and presentation, highly recommend!
