I remember when my aunt took me here for the first time for my first sushi experience. This was back in the fall of 96 and close to 11 years later I still go here for those occational cravings for sushi and salmon teriyaki. One of the things I liked most about the place is that it was close to where I went to high school, Loyola Academy. Sure, I was nervous trying sushi for the first time (like anyone else) but honestly there wasn't anything to be scared of. I remember having the salmon teriyaki box that included 3 pieces of sushi (shrimp, tuna, salmon). It was good then, and it's still good now. There's a reason to why Zagat rated this restaurant so high on their list. However, despite them making changes here and there, I think it's in need of some changes to their menu. Yes, the place isn't 100% authentic Japanese (more Korean acting Japanese, but what place really is true Japanese) but it's WAY better food than some other places I've tried. Plus, the value of their sushi gives you more for your money. I just wish they made changes to their menu more often, like changing the sushi selections as well as their bowl selection. But bottom line, I like this place and will continue to frequent this place. The food is good and the staff (well, most of them) are friendly too. But it would be nice to see some change go down after all these years.
Pros: Good food and sake, GREAT sushi, Good value
Cons: menu rarely changes, parking (despite being lot parking)
