Been there three times in a month. Love spicy shrimp tempura udon most! Highly recommended!


Such a nice place to visit! Staffs are very friendly and always has an energy. The foods were excellent as well. I had bunch of rolls and I love salmon and the quality of the fish were so good. Very fresh :) I would definitely come here again

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! I wasn't expecting such a great sushi place in the town. The sake don is delicious with pretty fresh salmon. It's a generous amount of fish as well! The shu mai was okay and probably wouldn't order again. Definitely go for the sushi and raw fish platters! Service was great and really attentive. Ambiance was also wonderful and pretty aesthetic (including the bathrooms!).

Best sushi in Champaign IL. Great staff and wide variety. Just book online to get a table and they use an app to order and pay from so be ready to use it.

I was insanely impressed by this place. Sometimes sushi places can be hit or miss (especially on campus). This was a hit and actually some of the best sushi I have had in awhile. Their menu is pretty large, but my favorites are the OMG, Philly, and Shrimp Tempura rolls. All of them outstanding. Their portions are also pretty large, even if the prices are a little high. The only downsides of this place are the wait, price, and ordering. Its a small place so you might need to wait. As for prices, sushi can sometimes be all over the place. This is charging higher end prices, but since the sushi is good, it makes up. Probably the biggest concern I have is the "self service" aspect. No longer are you ordering with a server and getting their recommendations. If I were new to sushi, I would be very scared by ordering something just based on what is on my phone. I also think it cheapens the experience. In all, this place is a hit and a new find for me. If you want to get some quality sushi on U of I campus, this is the place to be!

Place tastes authentic (Ive been living in Shanghai, had quality food there while also visiting Japan several times). Very generous with the amount of food thats being given. Wasnt the greatest fan of the rainbow with all the tuna salmon and other fishes on the roll. Wouldve been better if they just had a whole uncut fish on the roll but it was mid. Didnt get any diarrhea afterwards, so u can probably trust their quality. Miso soup was kinda salty

The Willis Tower is excellent and the sushi is the best in the area. The servers are all very attentive to your needs.


The service is not good The price is not reasonable The chicken noodle has so much oil and salt. Not healthy The light is not bright

Wow. The food here is excellent! The service is a little weird if you are with a group where you or another person in your group needs to take the order for everyone on their phone and then it comes out. The place is very small so come early or expect to wait. The wait later in the evening was almost two hours!

Ordered 'I love sushi' dish, the cut is very thick and fish taste a little bit smelly. Won't recommend. Better order the rolls.

Korean-Japanese style sushi place. Friendly server. Very long waitlist, but the food is good.

I enjoyed the food at Sakanaya. The Willis tower was fairly large and tasted really good, so did the Alaskan roll. I didn't like how you order on your own and pay on your own as it defeats the purpose of going to a restaurant. You are glued to your phone and have little interaction with the server. The food came out very quickly though.

Very happy with our food, had the curry katsu bowl which had shrimp tempura, a croquette, curry, rice. Some various rolls. Really good shrimp tempura. Kind of small, theres a place to wait next door. Anything over 6 people you may have to sit at different tables.
