handrolls, bincho-tan roasted meats and ice-cold beer; this is not your typical sushi joint. Come in and see for yourself.
Great food, music and service.
The best sushi I have eaten. Get the spicy tuna and tempura prawn rolls if you want an Early trip to heaven
Everything was just ok
Absolutely delicious! Had the express lunch which came with miso soup and a side salad along with a bento version of lunch. I chose the spicy octopus tako taco (3 mini tacos made of battered and fried seaweed wrap and filled with octopus salad--not spicy but so good). I also selected the Vietnamese pork rice bowl. All items were outstanding and served with a smile. The waiter explained the menu and the options since we were unfamiliar with some items (TUNA TRIO: AKAMI, CHUTORO, OTORO which are types of tuna cuts) very patiently. A wonderful experience and Ramen-San folks hit it out of the park again!
Awesome food, great service and reasonably priced
Sushi-San is an incredibly lively and hip sushi/robata restaurant with excellent cuts of fish and a good Japanese beer and sake selection.
The quality of the sushi was outstanding, but the price was according. Waiter was very agressively 'upselling' us, pushing the highest priced food and beverage items. Also, the hiphop/rap music was not exactly soothing...
The best Japanese restaurant with reasonable prices in US! I’m not exaggerating!
Great spot. Very fun and willing to accommodate
The food and cocktails were amazing and the ambiance was so fun. It’s a unique sushi experience for sure and a birthday dinner I will remember.
My friends said the sushi was wonderful. I did eat a few maki rolls and they were good. The OpenTable reservation app was so easy and we were taken directly to our table - no waiting. Great experience but I thought the music was a bit loud and made conversation at our table difficult.
This was my second visit and I was really disappointed. We ordered the nights specual ‘Fire’ roll, a spicy tuna and an eel roll. The Fire roll did not have much flavor and was meh. The eel and the tuna rolls were good but nothing special. This price is too high for 5 pieces. Also it was strange that my dining partner only described his rolls as way to salty (did not use soy). I am hesitant to recommend or to come back for a third visit.
Enjoyed our dining experience; great variety of sushi and hot food.
Inconsistent on the food quality and taste. Last visit two weeks ago was phenomenal. Today was below par!
I wish they made it more clear what the vegan options are
Music was a little too loud but outstanding experience at the bar for our anniversary!
Rave Reviews continue from everyone who joins me here for dinner. Incentive cuisine, great service and all else you need for a special dining experience.
Fun trendy ambience, modern decor, and tasty food! Service was great, the Manager came by a few times to ensure that we were having a good experience.
Visiting our daughter in Chicago. Ate here at the recommendation of a good friend - the food editor for Restaurant Business. (She KNOWS good sushi.) We were not disappointed...ended up eating here twice in four-day period. (Plus one time at its almost twin - RamenSan.) Will go again. And again. And Again.
great taste & great options for sushi & grill dishes.
service was spot on.
loved the old-school hip hop playing
Sushi San is one of the best restaurants for a night out. They have fun hip hop music playing, their waiters are extremely helpful/friendly/knowledgeable, and the food is delicious. I did a sake bomb Saturday for the first time in 7 years and it was surprisingly fun (and the drink was still high quality). Would highly recommend for date night, friends night out, etc.
The service was very good and the staff was very friendly but the sushi wasn't that great. It was a bit fishy and not that great. I would't go back again as the sushi isn't that great.
Great food, good energy and awesome service. Cool little spot.
This is the second time I have been to Sushi-San and I loved it. They have such fresh sushi. The beef n' bop rice bowl and the Japanese eggplant tempura were to die for. Very relaxed environment too.
Great place we did a little searching for sushi and found Sushi San great place glad we went.
Literally fabulous. Everything from the food to the service.
Great food, great service, always a favorite of ours!
Amazing sushi and rice bowls at a (semi) affordable price. Awesome music and attentive wait staff
A perfect sushi experience for me. Sat at the bar and got two watch the two sushi chefs prep and converse over my order, the D-Lux Nigiri (12 pc). The bartender prepared one of the best old fashioned's I've ever had which paired perfectly throughout my meal. The impeccable service matched the precision and care that was evident when the nigiri was presented to me.
Very load. Felt as if I had to scream to talk to person across the table
The lunch specials are wonderful. Easy to pick items of the highest quality!
Great spot. Excellent food. Fun vibe!
Amarit, Darryl, Ryan, Jared and their team are awesome. Fun ambiance, great food and always fantastic hospitality!
Awesome service by: Griffin, Kara, Ellie and Chris!
Favorite Dishes: Tako Taco (Nigiri bomb), salmon and akami sashimi, roasted king crab sizzling rice, spicy tuna aburi, shrimp tempura roll, nama chocolate (delicious!), Asahi beer (in a cold mug!), eggplant tempura, Zuke salmon, spicy tuna maki
Good for: Date Night, Cocktails, Happy Hour, Guys Night, Work Meal, Fun, Hot Spot
We had a late dinner last night.
Octopus tacos (very tiny but delicious), spicy tuna rolland vietnamese pork. Everything was really good, and the waiters super nice. Will go back
One of my favorite sushi restaurants in Chicago. Aside from sushi they have a lot of Japanese dishes that are quite delicious. Service is consistently good and welcoming.
Absolute fav! Everything about this place is a vibe. Highly recommend
Great all around! The manager greeted us and what a personality on him. So much fun and wonderful knowledgeable about the drinks and menu.
We ordered apps and moved onto dinner. SO fresh and tasty! Our server was just as wonderful and charming.
Our experience was so delightful, we will return again.
Thank you for such a great evening!
Good food. Good music and good drinks. I think slightly over priced
My first experience to sushi san was great! We went to celebrate my brother’s birthday and could not have had a better time. I highly reccomend getting the kabayaki eel roll and the sesame rocky road ice cream. This place is a bit pricy but overall the food is worth it. Be aware that it does get busy so try to get a reservation if you can, also this place is quite lively so dont expect a quiet dinner
Food was good....especially enjoyed the Tiger Shrimp and Ginger Salmon roll. Looking forward to more variety in the future:-)
