Pros: Food is pretty good

BAD service. C'mon, if the food is just below average, at least be nice! Not recommended. Go to Akira at 1137 Greenleaf Ave instead - uncomparable food and service.\r

Great sushi and other Japanese meals. Have lived in Japan and think food is delicious. Kid friendly. Special drink in bottle with marble called Ramune - Would definitely recommend.

Sushi here is OK, nothing great. The Chicken Terriaki dishes are just average. I have had much better tasting at other Japanese restaurants. If you really like Japanese food better place is Sunshine Cafe on Clark in Chicago.

Pros: Good food and sake, GREAT sushi, Good value

Cons: menu rarely changes, parking (despite being lot parking)

Authentic it's not, but if you're looking for good Japanese-ish food at a good price, this is a good place.

Small Japanese grocery store located just a few steps East of of the Lake St. exit at the Eden's Expressway (94). Great place for unique, hard-to-find Asian cooking ingredients and specialty gifts. I love to cook and seek out small Asian grocery stores, and found the quality and selection at this one among the best. Frozen foods from Japan, small selection of baked items, some fresh produce and meat and dairy items, noodles, condiments, spices, dried and canned foods, candies and snacks. Not as extensive as Mitsuwa market in Arlington Heights, but located more conviently for Chicago or North Shore suburban dwellers. Nice selection of giftwares too. Very reasonable prices considering most items are imported specialities.

PROS: Great selection of hard-to-find Asian foods
CONS: A bit hard to find in small strip mall

Consistently bad service. The staff could not care less about you. They are constantly running away from customers as soon as order is placed. It is too bad that this restaurant does not seem to care about service at all. Customers should
