delicious sushi- so fresh and always creative! Our fave.
Arguably, the best sushi in Chicago and the staff is "top-notch"!!!!
We put ourselves in Chef Mike's hands and once again were delighted with the results! He sent our table, multiple special rolls, beautiful tuna very lightly seared, very nice cooked scallops, and finished us with a lovely tuna "rose", that became two pieces of tuna for each of our party. All for a very reasonable amount for what we received! My wife has become a big fan, and looks forward to our next evening with Chef Mike and his lovely staff!
It was the most magical sushi related evening that I will never forget in my entire life. The sushi has redefined my standards of sushi. Every single dish that Sushi Mike blessed our table blow blew my mind and taste buds into another dimension.
This restaurant is one of our favorites in Chicago. This visit we were there almost 3 hours. The waiter (seemed new) was terrible. We overheard him cursing with another table. That table was load and speaking inappropriate and the waiting knew it. There was a family next to them, and they eventually left due to that table and the waiter. The waiter seemed upset when he noticed his tip from that table. I suggest this place get the servers they had previously.
Always excellent. Always delicious.
Mike is the absolute best! We will be back!
Excellent- incredible dinning experience, as it always is. Mike’s specials are amazing, fish and chips are an incredible innovation. We enjoy savory sushi dishes and Mike and crew always deliver!!
Our go to for amazing sushi. Always consistent, always delish, and Sushi Mike is fun, hilarious, creative, and generous.
Amazing experience and even better food. Would recommend to everyone
Incredible. I can’t wait to go back already.
Everything was excellent. The food is always top-notch and super fresh. The service was superb! The chef even gave our niece a dessert on the house! Excellent experience and we will be back (as we have been many times before). Thanks Tanoshii for an amazing Friday night!
During Covid, this place was jam packed. The chef wasn't wearing a mask. Terrible. I should have never walked in, but unfortunately I did. We ordered 3 sushi rolls which took over an hour. I finally freaked out and got my food to go. Totally regret going in and don't understand how they can squeeze that many people in a small place during these times. Not worth the risk!
We were there for 1.5 hours and ordered all our food in the beginning and it took them forever to get anything out. The appetizers took a normal amount of time but then we waited another hour and then still didn't get food & ended up leaving. We only had appetizers and they were serving everyone else their sushi besides us. I am not sure if it was an age thing, but we were the youngest there and everyone was being served before us, even when they arrived after us. They did comp our food that we did get, which was nice but it was ridiculous how long we waited and wasn't served our main dish and we were about to send well over $100. I could even see that they were packing out to go orders before they even made our food. This was the first time I have been there but I have heard great things, so I want to go back and actually try the sushi sometime soon.
Amazing. Always amazing
Great time, great food and just get whatever Sushi Mike is making. He is amazing
Loved it!! Sushi was great and service was wonderful
Loved this place. They offered to put us alone in the back room since they didn't have outside dining, but they kept people very far apart, so we felt comfortable in the corner. Our waitress was so friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back
Literally the best place to get Sushi on the North Side of Chicago!
Perfect.. Mike is the best
See private note re masks and infection control
I can’t remember our servers name but he was so wonderful! Funny and kind and very thankful for our business. Awesome food as always!
Do the Omakase - very inventive rolls. The rolls are pricey, but very generous portions and the creativeness of the rolls is worth it. Do the “fish & chips” appetizer - not what you’d expect, but a signature dish. For the rolls, ask for the fresh wasabi - a highlight.
Our server Andrew made the day! And ourcdining experience. Chef Mike is amazing
Service was very slow this particular night
I’ve been going to this sushi spot for about 10 years now. I love this place
Rather amazing experience to have some of the best sushi one’s ever tasted, if not the best, in Chicago (a midwestern city)! As most people have stated, start with their famous “fish and chips” and then go with the Chef’s choice. Meaning while I am sure everything is great on the menu, leave the roll creations up to to “Sushi Mike”. He prepares each of theses rolls front and center at the sushi counter and they are completely different—both in fish and flavor, and are perfectly blended with acute attention towards balance and texture. No single ingredient overwhelms, especially the rice—they are simply put, perfection. Also as people have mentioned, it’s BYOB (conveniently there is a grocery store across the street), they’ll seamlessly provide beer, wine or sake glasses. Fun environment with attentive and kind servers and the best sushi you’ll probably ever taste.
Love this place. Have never ordered off the menu. Just let them make rolls which are always amazing.
Superb meal. Don’t order off the menu. Just ask for the chef’s creation
The food was great, but other diners are literally at your table. There is no privacy to have a conversation.
Fresh, delicious food.. pleasant service, not rushed overall a delightful experience
It was great but a very long wait between dishes. Not always so.
New Years Eve dinner
Go with the Chef’s creation. We had the most unique & tasty rolls I’ve ever had!
Wonderful as always
Best sushi in the city
We love coming to Tanoshii! It's a neighborhood and city gem.
Best sushi in the US.
