I didn't have high expectations for this tiny "express" sushi restaurant, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The salmon sushi was fresh and had a perfect texture. The miso was tasty and well-balanced. The gomaae had a nice sesame sauce, was perfectly steamed and very tasty. Very friendly young woman at the register. I'd definitely go back.

Great place to get delicious sushi. Food is ready fast, yet the speed has no impact on the quality of food! The fish is always fresh and the service is fantastic.

I just happened to be in the area and instead of heading to my usual sandwich shop, I turned the corner and saw Sushi Express. It's a very small, but quaint space that has a couple tables and a short sushi bar seating area. Small menu but everything is prepared right in front of you. Very reasonably priced for the... More

We stop by here when we want sushi takeout without spending a fortune. It's good and very fresh. Their hot food is very good too. The staff is friendly and efficient. The place is small with only 5-6 tables so it's not designed with a fancy atmosphere. - Our family gets takeout here about every other month.

We were on our way to the Catlow and decided to grab a bite to eat before the movie. My fiancee mentioned she's seen this place a bunch of times but never had a chance to try it, so we stopped in. It's small but it wasn't very busy on this Monday so we were able to grab one of... More

This place is great. Food is very good, and so is the Japanese soda, called Ramune. Gyoza are cooked to perfection and the rainbow roll, (do NOT forget to add wasabi mayo on the top), was delicious. If you are looking for cheap, and a place to have a quick dinner, you have found it.

I'm not easily won over when it comes to sushi, but keeping price and convenience in perspective this is an excellent little "express" restaurant. Food is very good for the price, the service is outstanding, and it's very casual.

Naomi's is a great little secret in Barrington. It is very small and they are usually pretty busy. But worth the wait! Its not a sit down but they do have a few tables if you want to order at the counter and eat there. Call ahead for your orders. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE GODZILLA ROLL!!! Nothing compares to this...
