Sushi Lounge | Chinatown | Asian, Japanese | Restaurant
Japanese food in Chinatown; the friendly room is very bright considering it's basement level.

Our Review

If you like wandering among the Walgreens-style pagodas of Chinatown Place but don't always feel equal to a big pile of stir-fry at stroll's end, it's nice to know there's a little Japanese joint on the Cermak strip offering a full slate of sushi, shabu-shabu, and udon and soba soups. The teriyaki combos are cheap and decent, and though I prefer Matsuya's thin slices over the chunky pieces offered in the beef combo here, the rice was good and the meat flavorful. The two koroke (lightly fried potato croquettes) included in the deal were surprisingly yummy, while the soup and salad were perfunctory. The sushi is good stuff for the price, fresh and very pretty; the seaweed salad was delicious, and the spinach in the oshi tashi was perfectly blanched to a chipper green (if a bit overladen with gooey sesame sauce). The service is swell, and the bright basement room feels cozy rather than cramped.
