This used to be my favorite sushi restaurant in the world. I'd tell my friends I've had sushi in Manhattan, San Fransciso and Chicago and this little place in LITH beats them all. Not anymore. Don't know if they changed management or…

seriously exceptional

Yep, you will notice the dingy looking strip mall but as others have said you have nothing to fear! The first time I dined here I was suspicious of the low/romantic lighting. Why don't they want me to see my food? Being from Chicago I…

Tips
  • For privacy and romance, request one of the wood-framed, dimly lit booths in the rear.
  • Swanky cocktails include an Asian pear martini (sake and fresh pear juice), while kids can check out Ramune Japanese soda with a fun bubble in the bottle.
  • It's easy to miss this place, buried near the congested intersection of Algonquin and Randall roads. Look for the Lake in the Hills water tower.
