This place isn’t just a good sushi/Korean restaurant for a strip mall, its a world class restaurant period. I’ve been here at least 30 times now. I would come with a group of friend many late nights and drink Soju, Sake, and eat tons of sushi. Now I’ve been much more adventurous and I have been woke to just how... More

Great sushi selections and some unique Korean entrees. Chirashi was well done and plenty of food. Bibimbap was excellent

We've been here so many times, but I had forgotten to write a review on it! We love that it's close to home and you get salad, soup and red bean ice cream for dessert- all with your meal- no matter what. Now. It seems as though the servers have changed there from when we started going. The service was... More

Once we arrived, we knew we made a good choice. The place is authentic and had good atmosphere. There were several locals eating there and there was consistent amount of diners. Even... More

While the Yelp reviews are outstanding on this location, I found the fish to be solid, but nothing to write home about. Then again, this isn't where you'd expect top-notch sushi. A satisfying meal and I'd go again next time I'm in this suburban area.

We spent two nights in the Chicago area and found this restaurant near our hotel. It was already highly rated on TripAdvisor, so we tried it. My wife typically like Chinese food, and lemon chicken in particular. No lemon chicken here. The place was busy, but they sat us down quickly at the bar where we could watch the sushi... More

Delicious soup, and decent sushi. Lots of regional asian hot dishes including some I've not tried before. It's a basic place but solid and different!

Nikko Japanese has very fresh sushi with a lot of variety. Typically very crowded for dinner on the weekends, but it worth the wait.

I've been about a dozen times. The sushi is delicious, the staff are friendly. I love bringing new people here. The only downside is they are not open on Sundays, but everyone deserves a day off. It's hidden in a little strip mall, but it's a hidden gem.
