All 3 locations are great but closed on Mondays. Nice for something different at lunch time. Very accommodating will make any roll to order.

A good range of sushi. The Bento Box Salmon is still my favorite though. I usually also ask for the black rice instead of white rice. It has more flavor and better nurtrition.

Decided to try this place on the recommendation of a local. I hoped the sushi would be up to my picky culinary critic's standards. It met and exceeded my expectations. Managed to get us seated in about 10 minutes even though we didn't have reservations and seven people. Four like sushi, three do not but we all found something we... More

I met a colleague here for dinner as it was halfway between our respective hotel accommodations and despite an unflattering location (a nondescript strip mall), the food was rather good. They had a huge selection of specialty rolls and quite a few with some spicy flavors. We chose 3 rolls between the 2 of us and it was just the... More

Our family has been to Sushi Kushi Toyo over 20 times in the last 2 years. While the appearance is drab- storefront in strip mall, the interior is nice and the food is terrific. The sushi/sashimi is very fresh, with specials every night (snapper and toro last night). The rolls are varied and imaginative (definitely try submarine roll if you... More

Every time I'm in Lake Forest Illinois, I simply must go to Sushi Kushi Toyo. After living in San Francisco for 13 years, I got pretty spoiled on great Japanese sushi bars and restaurants and have been on a hunt since everywhere I go. I have been to Sushi Kushi Toyo countless times as my sister lives in Lake Forest... More

If you want the best sushi anywhere, Sushi Kushi is the place. I've been to a number of sushi restaurants, even new ones and no one is fresher! Kanpai!

We ordered several sushi rolls for take out. We were disappointed in the quality and preparation of the food. It just didn't taste fresh.
