UKAI SUSHI REVIEW

The most consistently good Japanese Sushi restaurant in Chicago. Couldn’t recommend it high enough!

Ukai is always a treat to visit. Greeted by a sweet server who always remember my order, I feel comfortable every time I walk in.

The atmosphere is relaxed with a good music selection, and they are BYOB, though they have a good drink menu, too. Ukai is located near the Belmont Red and Brown line stop and available for ordering online.

Here’s a quick word about their selections, but there isn’t much to say because it is all so good!

Recommendations:

APPETIZERS

Tuna Salsa Dip OR simple Miso soup.

It’s hard to go wrong with nice tuna, but this is paired with mango, grapefruit and avocado, making it an eclectic treat!

Tuna Salsa Dip

As for the miso, it is done simply and tastefully. Hearty without too much salt, a good ratio of tofu to seaweed.

SUSHI

Pink Lady. One of my favorite combinations of flavors in sushi, period.

Pink Lady

Usually one isn’t enough and I have to order two of these because it just tastes so good! As a Ikura (salmon roe) fan, I appreciate the way it tops this salmon roll and it leaves a light flavor with a delicate mayo sauce, that, depending on the day you come in, can be varying levels of spicy.

They also have Chicago sports themed makis (Bulls, Bears, etc..) if you’re a fan of novelty!

If you’re not a sushi fan, try out their Dons (bowls) or their Yakitori (chicken skewers)!

DESSERT AND DRINKS

They also serve drinks, Remune (japanese soda) as a stand out.

For dessert, the green tea or mochi ice cream is worth a taste.

Friendly staff, great environment, delicately delicious food – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
