We're sushi people. This place is in a great location (next to the ice/roller skating rink) and the people working there are really nice! The food is okay, but to qualify that statement we were there in the off season (as in TOTALLY off season)...More

Maybe I was just starving from a day of hiking, but this is hands down one of the best sushi places I've ever been to. Very fresh, great take on classic sushi and friendly service. Wish they had this in Chicago!
