Great night out but not a cheap one. Worth nearly every penny as the portion sizes weren’t too amazing. So we ordered more, delicious food and the sake we ordered was brilliant. Will be back for celebrations and events.
Food was great! Some small plates a tad bit on the pricier side for what they are but nothing crazy. Meal portions were more than enough. Everything was unique and delicious.
My friends and I did family style and we ended up spending around $70 each but that includes four appetizers, sake, dessert and sashimi. This place is pricey but you taste the quality and complexity of the food. The servers were really helpful with recommending a sake to pair with the food we were eating and they frequently checked in on our table.
My recommendations are the steak skewers, the tuna sashimi, and the Miso Blondie for dessert. This restaurant is one of my favorites in Chicago, highly recommend going.
This sushi restaurant is absolutely amazing! They offer excellent sushi and tasty tapas style plates. We enjoyed our sushi’s there from the first bite to the last. The sushi’s are tasty, fresh and delicious. The drinks are good as well. We sat at the sushi bar and Chris, the sushi chef was very friendly and professional. He made us excellent recommendations, shared his personal favourites with us and made sure we enjoyed the delicious sushi’s and plates this restaurant has to offer. The decor and the vibe are both awesome. The service was also impeccable! Overall, I recommend this restaurant to every sushi lover in town and I will gladly come back to try out more delicious items on their menu!
***edit*** we also tried the izakaya Downstairs and the food and ambiance were amazing!

Celebrated our friend’s birthday at this location.
It was nice place and warm vibe.
The foods tasted good and I loved the sushi but the portion of it was small.
We ordered Monk’s Journey and it was delicious.
The Mishima skirt steak was really good too.
We had fun and enjoyed our time.
The service was great! The food and drinks were even better than I expected. My favorites were the shiso soba and the white lotus cocktail. I could probably eat the shiso soba every day. We were seated upstairs, which felt like a quieter atmosphere. Overall, this is a place I will definitely return to and hopefully soon.
We reserved a table at the Izakaya downstairs for dinner through OpenTable. Great atmosphere and we loved how our waitress asked us if we had any allergies right away. We ordered some spirit-free cocktails, the Satsumaimo fries, miso soup, and the Jewel Bako which was beautiful and fresh.
Wow what an amazing night! Perfect service, great atmosphere, and just an absolutely delicious meal from start to end. Everything we had was so good one of the best dining experiences in Chicago. Make sure you end with the chocolate dessert!
