This is a little hole in the wall, one street over from Michigan avenue. The food was fresh and service was great. They had a nice little setup outside, so sitting on the side street made it an excellent location. I at the 9pc Sashimi Deluxe, which was fresh and plenty of food. My wife got a couple rolls and with drinks, we were still out for under $100.

Our first stop whenever we get into the city is Friends Sushi. Kind of a whole in the wall but fabulous food and staff. Food is imaginative and high quality. Reasonably priced. A tradition we plan to continue.

We ended up at Friends sushi on a weekend, a little after the lunch rush, without reservations. However, the wait was not too long and our party of 6 was seated in about 15 mins. The sushi was fresh and innovative. We tried several options from their "Friends Signature Maki" list and were very happy with the selections. The Ticky Tacky and Can You Handle It (spice alert!) rolls were phenomenal! Definitely a good place to stop for a quick meal if you are shopping in the area.

We admit it, we're sushi snobs. The establishment reminded us of one of our local sushi restaurants: narrow with tightly packed tables and trendy decor.

For being an inland restaurant, the fish was reasonably fresh. The portions were adequately generous and prepared quickly. There is no children's menu so you'll have to choose an adult portion to share so budget your appetite accordingly. The teriyaki chicken was a big rubbery let down.

Was visiting the city for the weekend and was looking for sushi. Got locations from Siri on my I phone. Decided to check out this place because of the ratings I found. Very nice atmosphere, as well as food and service. I would definitely go back when I am in town again.
