I can't put my finger on it but this place definatley seems "family owned". Owners are totally sketch, do not do business with them ESPECIALLY if you are a promoter looking for a spot to host a DJ night. Have fun turning down the volume every 5 minutes, oh and bringing all your own equipment. It's seriously not worth it, your better off inviting your friends to your place and jamming out in your living room.

Just left Koko and had a great time. My date left a high score! Very impressed. Will we come back? Without a doubt. Already making plans for a weekend with friends. If you go there, try the Miami rolls and the white fin tuna. The sangria pitcher was refreshing and moved us to the patio. My lunch date ended up with me calling in to work and enjoying the afternoon with great company.

WELL I WENT TO A PARTY THERE..AND I HAD COME FROM ANOTHER CLUB AND THE MANAGER/OWNER...WHOEVER THAT OLD BALDING GUY WAS, TOLD US WE HAD TO TAKE OFF OUR WRISTBANDS. HE MADE A BIG DEAL SO I ENDED UP HAVING TO RIP IT OFF. THE FOOD WAS OKAY BUT THE DRINKS WERE HORRIBLE. I DONT EVEN THINK THE LADY AT THE BAR WAS A BARTENDER, SHE DIDNT KNOW HOW TO MIX DRINKS. SOME LITTLE KIDS WALKED INTO THE PARTY AND GOT DRINKS W/O A PROBLEM. THEY LOOK LIKE THEY WERE 17 BUT, I GUESS THE OWNER DIDNT CARE MUCH AS LONG AS HE WAS GETTING HIS MONEY. SO THE PLACE LOOKED LIKE BOO IN THEIR "VIP" ROOM. THERE WERE SHEET COVERS OVER SOME DIRTY OLD COUCHES, AND LIKE 3 ALMOST BROKEN BAMBOO CHAIRS. PLACE LOOKED HORRIBLE. NO TP IN THE BATHROOMS, NO LOCKS ON THE BATHROOM DOORS...ALL IN ALL A CRAPPY PLACE TO GO TO! LAZY SERVICE! DIRTY PLACE.

I highly recommend you stop by and give this place a try, you won't be disappointed!

I'm from the coast where sushi is excellent at all times, I've been looking for a place in Chicago to deliver the same consistently and have just found it! I knew it was love after the 5th time I went in 2 weeks. The Fashion and the Dragon rolls have been my favs hands down so far, but dont discount the Fire Cracker, I love it! Great atmosphere, great date place too!!

You can never compare any other sushi bar until you eaten here! The place is not only great but the food was fabulous! I love the edamame and the Koko Red Dragon. Fresh and delicious just how I like it. And not only that, I had great service. For first timers, I really recommend to eat here. I will bring my friends and family to dine here.

Stopped by for lunch. Wait person obviously didn't understand types of wine. Finally asked for ice tea; got a Coke. Then was told they only had peach or green tea.
Asked for a certain roll, hold the green pepper. Ignored my request and served it with the green pepper.
Wait person was very apologetic and replaced it. Yellow tail was very fresh and good. Nice selection of rolls. Definitely would go back and give it another try.

First of all, months ago I had reviewed this place as superb but after an AWFUL experience, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALL. For months the owner has desperately tried to push this place as a club/lounge Friday and Saturday nights but has not been successful. The first time he tried, he told us to invite our friends and we'd make it a fun night there. All of the drinks were so watered down, they tasted terrible. In order to save money Chris hires inexperienced waiters/waitresses who don't understand you too well, and besides that, they had no experience in keeping up with a higher volume of customers. I read the reviews to this restaurant and I agree, the service can be great when no one else is around because the majority of the time, there's 1 or 2 other customers there besides yourself! Some of my friends werent even attended to, some didnt even receive their platters before they stormed out. The experience was so embarassing, and a day later a friend of mine got sick from her sushi. After this, I never invited any friends here again.

I Love japanese food and i love maki... ive eaten a lot of sushi in chicago and before, i considered matsuya in wrigleyville to be the best taste-wise.... but one sat evening me and my girl stumbled upon this unassuming place in lincoln ave.. the moment we entered we loved the ambiance ( its also a bar) with its japanese decors, rich red leather booths, seats... dimly lit so it was pretty romantic... the best part, however was the food we ordered... granted its not authentic japanese (its not even japanese owned i reckon, especially with the occasional salsa music) but the taste was EXCELLENT!! like a party in your mouth... id chew it slowly so id really savor the taste for as long as possible... i highly recommend tbe special makis like the red dragon and the Godzilla... monstrous taste indeed.... it actually tastes a little far from your authentic japanese rolls... the spider roll and the chicken terriyaki box meal were also very good... and the price is fantastic... cheaper than most other sushi places,.. average $15/person... another thing that makes this better than matsuya, aside from being cheaper, is the fact that its not crowded...and parking is not a problem, like it is in wrigleyville on a sat night for example.... my only reservation is the bathroom... its clean, nicely decorated, but Poorly lit... aside from that i highly recommend this place...

This place is great and the fish is fresh. They bend backwards trying to satisfy you. I don't understand why the previous two people gave this place such a bad review. Come on... so what if the Russian girl has an accent...at least she is trying. And if the restaurant is a straight line from where you are on Lincoln AVe. then walk your A** there... everyone can use more exercise in their lives.

I love the sushi, got to know the cooks they will do whatever you like, especially in that neighborhood with all the uptight, yuppies that are monolingual, so don't have the ear to understand an accent, and I've been there to see them cater to people who are just outrageously spoiled, so my hats off to them:) I've seen them creat rolls the do not contain seaweed, because some customer wanted a roll, "with-out seaweed", and that sushi chef, "invented a way to do it", LOOOVE IT.

Cons: some waiting staff is inexperienced

It is sad but even more it is a pity that some people will try to do anything to discredit a bussines. I have worked in many restaurants and have witnessed how many individuals try to do anything to get free food and take advantage of the freedom of the speech as with the internet to calumniate a descent and respectful bussines. I am a regular client and honestly have to say that the food is excellent. It is understandable that a delivery may or not arrive on time that's happened to me once or twice but let's not blame others for your own mistakes. Be your own judge and respect others by not talking trash.

I ordered for delivery to 3900 N Lincoln. Driver got lost and had to call for directions. How can you get lost going to 3900 N Lincoln when the restaurant is at 3140 N Lincoln???????? Food arrived one and a half hour after I had placed the order. I couldn't believe it! My miso soup was cold and I had requested to substitute the salmon with shrimp and still got salmon. I had heard great things about the place wich is why I decided to order from them. I'm extremely disappointed and will not attempt to order from this place ever again!!!!!

It is not possible to communicate with the waitress here (and yes there is only one waitress). I don't mean to be rude but I don't enjoy going to restaurants where I can't even order a drink because the wait staff doesn't understand me. On my last visit, she didn't know what a Mai Tai was and didn't understand any of our order. We left. I had eaten there one time before, same waitress, same problem. The sushi we had that time was edible but blah. I won't go back.
Save yourself some aggravation and walk North to Kite Sushi & Mandarin.
