I visited on Tuesday 11/8/16 for dinner. Ordered sushi from a huge sushi menu. First thing i noticed was the sushi was not wrapped very tightly and fell apart when i attempted to eat. The texture was very mushy and not fresh, the fish smelled old with an odd color and texture. Ordered something else with same result. I have... More

After we read all good reviews about this place we decided to go for lunch with my colleague from work. The place itself is OK,not too fancy but clean. But that's about all I can say that was OK. The place has only one waiter/cashier - I guess its the wife of the owner. She is not nice at all... More

My family and I were in the area and needed a place for dinner. Reviews for this restaurant were good, so we gave it a try. There was only 1 woman serving the entire dining room but she did it with efficiency of not a smile. While we were there we noticed many "regulars" with kids and were felt relieved.... More

I've been coming here for 21 years! Hard to believe. I love sushi and search it out wherever I travel. There are sushi restaurants with some more exotic offerings, but nobody offers fish this fresh and such plentiful portions. Most places have more rice than fish. Here it is the opposite. Paul carefully scrutinizes each delivery to make sure it... More

One of the best Japanese restaurant in the area, it is small and not particularly fancy but the food is stellar. I came with a Japanese colleague and he was positively surprised, too. There are very few tables and it is very crowded so I recommend to arrive early. Again, great Japanese food, I really recommend.

We have been going to Fujiyama for over 15 years...The sushi is the best by far. You have to be patient as Paul makes all the Sushi, But I promise that the wait is always worth it!

I decided to try out this place since it was reasonably close to my hotel and options around the Northbrook area are a bit limited. The place is located in a shopping mall, which means that you can't expect anything fancy or upscale from the decor. This leaves it almost all up to the quality of the food and the... More

We went for the first time. The owner was a former waitress at another Japanese Restaurant. We met people who go all the time who alternate between sushi and tempura because it simplifies making difficult decisions. We will definitely go back!

The owner was very attentive, friendly and assertive. The fish was fresher than expected and the sashimi portions were ample. A simple, small strip mall sushi bar but unless you need a fancy atmosphere, I suspect that this is the best sushi in the area. I would go back without hesitation.

Wow! Just had one of the best Japanese comfort food dinner EVER! I start with a cup of scalding hot green tea, miso soup... and agedashi tofu. I wish you could have smelled the broth! It was the best I've ever had because the broth was fish based!! The tofu was well fried crusty and chewy with a soft, silky... More
