Went here to celebrate my girlfriends birthday a week ago. Great service and sushi rolls. They even gave us a dessert on the house for it being my girlfriends birthday!

We came to celebrate a friend’s birthday with a party of 8. We honestly couldn’t have picked a better place. The staff was so incredible and welcoming. Food was beyond delicious. We had great drinks, beers, and sake bombs. They helped us top the night off with sake and a birthday dessert. Can’t thank this amazing staff enough for giving us such a great experience! We all can’t wait to come back.

I was not happy with the service. My wine was wrong and the server confused my order but still charged us for it,plus an up charge.

Stumbled upon this place while walking downtown. I was very happy to find a sushi place relatively close to my home. Their selection is creative and fresh, along with traditional favorites. The decor is modern and the place looks like you could find it in Tokyo. The service was very friendly and attentive. Food comes out as fast as you want it. The prices are crazy inexpensive for Downtown anywhere.

I like this location better than the one on Rush street. It is very cozy and has cute white tables. Good for chatting.

Had a great dinner here tonight. The location looked really nice on the inside and the food was great. Don’t eat seafood so was impressed with the variety of vegetarian rolls available. The server was very attentive. The music was also very nice. Overall we had a great dinner here would definitely go back.

Used to love this place but this visit was a disappointment. Fish did not taste fresh and the place really looked dirty. The white furniture is no longer white which makes it seem like they just don’t care. Plenty of places for sushi in Chicago. Friends may no longer be on our list.

I’d been to rush street location. This was just as great. Personally felt like this location liked more updated inside. Still great sushi!

The sushi wasn't fresh, way too pricey. They drinks didn't taste good. We ordered several types because we couldn't find anything that tasted like what was described on the menu.

We ended up going to Shale Shack afterwards to actually get something tasty. Last time I go to Friend's. It's NOT authentic anymore, nor even a good value. There better AUTHENTIC sushi in Chicago.

I had the BEST sushi I have ever had in the Midwest. I’ve eaten at many sushi restaurants in Chicago, and the quality and taste of the fish here blew everywhere else out of the water. Friends instantly became my new favorite sushi restaurant.

Great food. Excellent service!! Many menu items are quite creative, including mashed potatoes, vermicelli noodles, lots of mayonnaise. But everything we tried was very delicious, just not what I would call traditional Sushi , definitely recommend!
