We just had a wonderful lunch in a gorgeous setting. We had udon soup along with shrimp and vegetable tempura. The presentation of the food was exquisite. The prices were also very reasonable. I highly recommend it.

Went there a month ago. Had very well prepared food and Saporo beer -- nicely chilled the way it should be. Restaurant is very clean and hosts friendly. Nice experience.

If you're looking for fresh (and generous cuts) of sushi, make sure you visit Kamakura in Wilmette, IL. Salmon, tuna, yellow tail, all down the line: delicious.
