This is a friendly restaurant with tasty sushi. No fancy decor. A great place if you just want to have a good meal. Reasonably priced for sushi. Really nice, uncomplicated. They do a wonderful job.

What more can you ask for? Kunis provides excellent service, friendly waitresses, affordable food and a nice location close to the CTA Purple Line. Highly recommended!

We came to Kuni's for a sushi dinner after reading the reviews. We chose the Omakase (chef's choice) sushi and sashimi dinner along with the special dry sake. The service was first rate. The staff was so very friendly and attentive. Our meal started out...More

Whenever we get a chance, we drive up to Evanston from Chicago to sit at Kuni's sushi bar and order omakase, or chef's choice. Kuni always has the freshest, tastiest fish, including scallops and aji flown in from Japan. We also recommend the nori-wrapped soba...More
