It is a tapas style sushi place, nice names of each sushi, the portion is so small, or hardly to see the real thing they used to make it. Won't come back,

Just great sushi. My go to place. I would recommend the kiss of fire and the green tea mochi for dessert is excellent. Definitely 5 stars.

We dine here once or twice a month. The staff knows us very well and they remember what my kids eat even before we order.
Do not let the outside look deceive you. The food is excellent, the service fast and courteous, and the price fair.
Do give it a try.

Simple Japanese in strip mall... Dinner night before family trip out of O Hare. Food was solid... Kids had udon and tempura... I had good spicy shrimp and California rolls and my husband had various sashimi. Wasn't crowded, service was friendly. Good spot.

Nice eclectic sushi restaurant tucked away. Nice ambience inside and a wide selection of entrees on their menu. Staff was also very friendly. Sushi was great and prices were very reasonable. I had the Urban Heat signature roll. My husband had the Godzilla roll which were fried. Both tasted really good. We also got a free little appetizer and ice cream with our meal. Our meal came with a salad and miso soup. It was filling and satisfying.
