A wonderful Japanese restaurant that serves sushi and tempura to savor! We have always been leery of sushi but know this restaurant if of top quality. The sushi is the freshest around and is rolled at an open prep counter.

While I only ordered take out, it was so good I wanted to comment. Very fresh and priced right for what you get. I ordered a variety of sushi and all were great. I will definitely go back.

We had spider roll, spicy tuna, beef with asparagus, and calamari. Some of the dishes came with cream cheese. An odd ingredient for Japanese food. The staff was very accommodating, however, and mad it without. Very good.

Food here is delicious. We have been here several times and it just gets better and better. I ordered an appetizer and it was a nice size portion.

This was one of the nicest Asian restaurants I've been to in the Evanston area. I would recommend it as a spot for a date night. There are a few vegan dishes and I would give this a vegan friendly rating of a 2.5 out...More

Been there multiple times, never disappointed. Always fresh fish, quick and decent service, even though a bit pricy, but it worth every dime. Strongly recommend sashimi boat, perfect for a couple to share. And the house sake is decent.

We must like it, since we have been a few times. It is a nicer upscale eatery that is still accessible for those who prefer casual as I do. Service was beyond excellent and the food was fresh and well presented. It is a bit...More
