From the team behind RAMEN-SAN, SUSHI-SAN serves up fresh fish with fresher beats. With crispy
handrolls, bincho-tan roasted meats and ice-cold beer; this is not your typical sushi joint. Come in and see for yourself.

The food was good, but the service was horrible. The service was inattentive to our order. It took 25 minutes to serve our edamame and drink order. I was given a hot glass for my beer. We ordered a second round of rolls and it took 30 minutes to receive our order. At that point, we lost our appetite.

Relatively small number of options but all very well done.
Both sushi/sashimi and hot items such as the beef or pork are super.
Also very attentive attention to issues such as letting us know about MSG, dashi, or kombu which can give customers migraines

The food we ordered seemed unclean. Too much sauce and I found a fish scale swimming in my mayonnaise coated fish. Ugh.

Sushi-San is great! The fish is SUPER fresh and incredibly prepared. I especially love the express lunch options - a fantastic deal and quickly served for those of us on a tight schedule during the workweek. Highly recommend!

We had the best time st sushi-San! We were celebrating my husbands birthday in Chicago and sushi was out to pick for an evening out! The service and food were amazing! We were treated by the manager and he shared his menu favorites! After our server greeted us with a drink and just as wonderful service as the manager. We will definitely recommend Sushi-San to friends and will be back next time we visit Chicago!

PHENOMENAL.
The best sushi i have ever had. Ever. Every bite of the meal was to die for.

We started with miso soup. Hands down, the best miso i have ever had. We then had nigiri. The fatty tuna (i forget the "official name" was the best bite of food i have ever had. It melted in my mouth. We then did the kimchi pickles, which were delightfully spicy and crunchy. A seaweed salad, clearly fresh and perfectly seasoned was next. On to the tempura shrimp roll, fantastic. We then had the scallops and wagyu beef. Small portions but. Divine. We ended the night with the matcha butter pancakes, which were more of a souffle of pancake batter. SO. GOOD.

Service was impeccable. Will return.

It was great sushi for the rolls they had! Just not many options and most of it was “spicy” rolls. Which I loved but others wanted more variety. Saki was BOMB. Would recommend!

We had a good dinner, a good time and good food. The first server we had was so nice and so sweet and she walked us though the menu in details and she made sure our order was right and we didn’t have any allergies. She then told us she won’t be the one taking care of us, but another person will. The second server we had was not as nice as the first one but she handled our small issue very well..The only surprising thing with our food was a bone in the hamachi roll. The manager was very nice and he approached us after I told the server the issue, he offered us dessert and that made our night! I was there before and I had good service and I won’t let this incident stop me from going there. We liked how the manager handled the situation.

Server took great care of us, and even suggested a couple other places that we ended up going to! Great food. Roasted Edemame was the best ever. The spicy tuna aburi I would order everytime I go back! So good. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes fresh sushi and lively neighborhood atmosphere. Loud but not obnoxious. Great night with friends ot for a date
