We should have turned around as soon as we walked in as the décor is an ill-fated combination of bright glossy white and neon purple and its worse than is sounds. Even though the place was virtually empty the service was so slow. Our server...More

I’ve had higher quality tuna out of a can. And small rolls. Some strange man kept coming in and out lurking. Could have been the owner/employee or just some creep making lunch awkward for paying customers. No thanks. Garbage sushi and an uncomfortable and strange...More

Cute little restaurant with a nice interior build out for a shopping center. Beyond that this place is far too much price for far too little. Tiny pieces of sushi......very tiny wafer thin piece of fish. Oddly they cooked the quail egg....wtf? Dinner for three...More

Quaint, modern vibe with super fresh sushi. Definitely on the pricier side (i.e. think Wicker Park at OHare Airport) but rolls had creative taste and I would definitely go back. Could get very crowded if outdoor seating is unavailable.

This is a small but beautiful restaurant located in Junction City in Peoria Heights, IL. The sushi was awesome and the service was just as good. It's one of my favorite sushi places and I love the atmosphere.

Disclaimer: we've only ordered to-go from this restaurant. We've never dined in. That said, the SPECIALTY sushi rolls are my favorite in town (fire roll, mt Fuji, etc). They are little on the pricy side so we don't get them from here as often as...More

This place is small, modern, hip, and they know what they're doing. I had the california roll and the crab meat roll plus the tuna tartare for an appetizer. All were excellent. If you like Sushi, there's no place locally that's better.

The decor was very stylish for Peoria. It looks like an upscale restaurant in the burbs of Chicago. Very quaint, clean and relaxing. My waitress was very friendly and attentive...I was the only customer at that time. I love sushi and when I go to...More

This is a great small restaurant/bar with a great atmosphere. The sushi and drinks are great but a little on the pricey side. This would be a nice place to celebrate a special occasion. It is small so you should make reservations unless you want...More
