It was getting a bit late, so we decided on Gorilla Sushi as we both think that sushi seems to be a lighter meal. We were seated immediately. Our server, Natt, was there with the menus and to take our drink order. For appetizers, we...ordered a seaweed salad and an order of gyoza. For our sushi selections, we decided on a French roll, a sweet potato roll, a tuna & avocado roll, and a Miami roll. Everything tasted fresh and good, and the amount of food was perfect for what we were looking for. The total price was quite reasonable.More

We ate as many selections as possible since my companions had been using the Gorilla take out. This time we stayed in house. I am prone to be annoyed when things do not appear to be clean, like the soy sauce container with dribbles, and...those awful plastic tumblers. The chop sticks were reusable and stuck in a cup on the table.... The sushi display and the masters creating the food were in a very clean environment - please understand the food is excellent and fresh. Is it possible that the previous eatery left all the worn out equipment behind ? Take time to read the menu because so many selections have similar composition with a special tweak. My personal measurement of comparison for sushi is a rainbow roll from place to place. It was easy to taste the distinction between fish types and the fish was firm and cold.More

Great place to come for super affordable sushi! Also BYOB which is awesome! Select seating so you may have to wait but worth it!

We were in the neighborhood, so we decided on the Gorilla Sushi Bar. The only real issue that we have found is the parking, but if you get there just before 6:00 p.m., there is parking on the street. Once inside, we picked our table...and were given our menus by our server, Fai. She took our drink order. We decided on a couple of things. To start, we had an order of gyoza. For sushi, we selected four different ones. We ordered a heart attack roll and a Cubs roll. We also ordered a tuna & avocado roll and a negi hamachi roll. Certainly, with the two special rolls, the total price was a bit high, but they tasted good. Now, if I can only get used to the extremely low lighting at Gorilla Sushi.More

We chose the Gorilla Sushi Bar on Milwaukee Ave., as we had a serious taste for sushi. The restaurant was pretty full when we arrived, but we did find a parking spot in front. We were seated, but I must admit that when Gorilla Sushi...Bar is crowded - it seems very crowded. We started off by ordering a small sake and some appetizers. We forgot that they don't serve alcohol, but we were quite surprised when our server brought us a smoked salmon sushi. Small sake - smoked salmon, a bit of a language issue. Anyway, we ordered the avocado salad, an order of fried shumai, an order of gyoza and a small 4 piece tempura appetizer. Our server did take the smoked salmon back. Once we were done with the appetizers, we decided on two orders of sushi. The first was the alligator sushi roll and the second was the spider roll. Both were good. Our only issue was how long the alligator roll took to get to the table. I think they sent to Florida for the alligator! Seriously, though, it did look like an alligator and it tasted quite good. The servers were efficient and attentive. The price was reasonable.More

Delicious sushi and at such a reasonable price. Everything was $2.99 and was so good. Great service and restaurant offers a BYOB. Couldn’t be better!

I love this place! I ate over there, i order a lot from there and i miss eating Gorilla Sushi so much. I recommend it to all my friends! Rolls are fresh, they have great ingredients and their prices are amazing! There is no alcohol...at the place but is BYOB. My favorites: Spicy tuna roll, salmon avocado roll, dynamite roll (so good!) and umo umo roll. Fun fact: my friends are addicts to Gorilla sushi now, and only order sushi from them :)More

Yep, it is a small restaurant, but the sushi is excellent with great choices for sushi and appetizers. We found a parking spot on the street in front and we were seated immediately. Our server, Jason, was right there and brought us water and the...menus. We started off with an avocado salad and a seaweed salad. We ordered an order of gyoza and an order of fried shumai. For sushi, we ordered a mini Godzilla roll, a Miami roll and a French roll. Everything tasted good and it seemed like the perfect amount of food. The price was right. Jason was efficient and attentive.More

I actually visited their location on North Clark. Their sushi rolls are fantastic!! And for the price, it makes them out of this world! I don't see myself going anywhere else! Location is tiny, but don't let it fool you, their rolls Pack-a-Punch! It is...also BYOB, and they do NOT charge a corkage fee which is nice. Been there once a week for the past two weeks and I will be going there again this weekend. #LoveThisPlace!More

Place is quick for food, they give you a hot towel and there is fresh ginger. Sushi is made to order and delicious. The $2.95 gives the chance to try out different kinds of rolls. The mini Godzilla is my favorite. Pics to come soon

We came to Gorilla Sushi Bar and found that the establishment had not changed much in appearance, either inside or outside, but what we did find was that the sushi was still excellent. The staff, including Jason, our server, was helpful and efficient. We ordered...a seaweed salad and an order of fried shumai for appetizers. We then ordered a tuna & avocado roll and a dynamite roll. I expected the dynamite roll to be really hot, but Jason advised that it wasn't, and he was right. But it was good, with the right amount of heat. We also decided on a French roll and a Miami roll. Everything tasted good and it was all fresh. Gorilla Sushi Bar receives a constant flow of people coming in for take-out. We both felt that for the amount of food, it was remarkably reasonably priced. Remember, it is not "cheap", it's just inexpensive.More

I went here on a double date because it was recommended to us by the other couple. I was amazed by how cheap the sushi was and how amazing it tasted. This location is quite small but able to fit a few groups of people...and I also know they do carry out. The service was fast and the waiter was very nice. For $2.95 a roll its a steal of a deal. Our table tried a lot of different rolls my favorite was the Spicy Tuna Roll which had just enough kick but not too much. I would recommend this place to any sushi loving people out there! Its DELICIOUS!More

Gorilla Sushi Bar is located on Milwaukee Ave. at Gale St., just north of the Jefferson Park CTA Terminal. Parking can be a bit tough, especially during the evening rush hour, but there is a lot behind the restaurant. We were greeted & seated immediately...in this small sushi bar. What it lacks in size or space, it makes up with the sushi. We ordered a couple of appetizers, including fried shumai, gyoza or pork dumplings and the seaweed salad. I was really impressed with how good the seaweed salad tasted. That was fresh and crisp. We also ordered some different sushi rolls, including a tuna avocado roll and a mini Godzilla roll. We also ordered a Miami roll which was the hottest (temperature-wise) crunchy sushi roll that we have ever had. Everything was fresh and delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient. The prices were more than reasonable. Believe me, Gorilla Sushi Bar is a sleeper and worth a try.More

Had a wonderful lunch with two lovely ladies at Gorilla Sushi. I had the California roll and they had other choices. Because we all took the lunch special offer we could share and try each other's selections. Everything was delicious. Service was excellent and we...all had a good time.
