We have dined here since Joseph and Cathy took over. They have consistently fresh fish and wonderful offerings on the hot side of the menu. I always feel like a family member when I walk in. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. Great place to eat and enjoy the evening.

That place used to be so much better when they opened up. They have a carousel with sushi bowls ( 2-3) pieces .Buffet is $27 per adult. Sushi is almost all rice with a touch of fish. Unless you request something specific, they put the cheapest stuff on the carousel. An Ice cream that comes with thr buffet is probably... More

My family of four ate dinner at the sushi bar. They provided a wonderful assortment of sushi from nigiri to rolls to seaweed salad. Standouts were the spider roll and avocado paired with tuna and salmon. The all-you-can eat price included a salad or miso soup and ice cream. The service is very friendly and they will take requests.

I'm not a fan of anything that's all you can eat as usually it's all quantity, not quality. I wondered in to Taste of Tokyo purely by chance planning to order off the menu, but when I saw the selection going by on the Sushi Boats, I was hooked. The variety is a little heavy on a huge selection of... More

My wife comes to this restaurant regularly, so she is known by name. It had been about a year since I was there. I'm a vegetarian, and I found that the sushi chefs would make me oshinko, avocado, and vegetable rolls without any sense of irritation, which I appreciated. Sweet potato rolls did come out regularly and seem to be... More

Sushi boats with sushi, rolls, edamame, and gyoza...what more could you want? It was fresh and good quality, and they take special requests. They serve beer but were out of Kirin on my visit. The miso soup was tasteless, but the gyoza was good. Overall, friendly staff, and I would go back. Was a great value for the money.

Read great reviews here and decided to try it on my work trip. Was not disappointed. Good sushi, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices. They also kept my water glass full!

Just awesome. Used to live in Chicago area and was home to see some friends. Was recommended this location and it really is awesome. Fresh made items circulate on floating boats and you grab what you want. Eat. Wait for more. Special requests are of course offered as well. Always visit when I am back in town!
