Tried salmon, yellowtail and red snapper nigiri all outstanding, shiitake mushroom roll was tasty too. I’d say the miso soup and salad are average, but fish was on point.

so far best sushi restaurant I've been to. good selection of sushi and various rolls (along with appetizers and desserts), great staff (who have the best recommendations if you ask), and quick service time after you put in your order(s).the sushi chefs aren't afraid of testing out new menu items ?? some of which are not even on the menu (cough cough, seared salmon special).

At first it was really good but last time it was underwhelming, especially for takeout . The sushi rolls were small and not presented well. The fish wasn't fresh like the first time.

Ok eel nigiri is melt in your mouth. $8 for two pieces is steep but it was delicious. If I'm desperate I might buy again...maybe. Rainbow, salmon n cream cheese, shrimp tempura roll..forgot the names for the last two but they were the special rolls. Presentation was great! Sushi was really good, wish they had a bigger sign I couldn't find them next to Qbbq. Prices could be a tad lower. Service was quick and they were very kind.

Some of the freshest sushi I've had in Naperville! I really recommend their rainbow roll, that has all sorts of fish on there to try and it tasted amazing! They had really good service as well, but I would recommend going at a non busy time because the area is a bit small. I typically don't like midwest sushi but this one is pretty up there! I never felt like it was too much or too heavy - just how sushi should be.

Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious!! Fish was super fresh and all the staff were so nice. Great place for a romantic date night.

Delicious sushi, beautiful presentation, nice atmosphere, and the staff was extremely friendly! Will definitely be going back. Would highly recommend the This or That rolls :)

Fantastic. Best sushi I have ever had! Portions were generous. Some of the rolls were too big to fit in my mouth--that's how generous the portions are. Can't wait to return. Only complaint is they don't serve tap water, you have to buy bottled. Idk why as the server mumbled the reason and I didn't care enough to make her recite her excuse again. I wish they would have the option for sparkling water if they make you pay for water.

The food here is pretty tasty, but overall not a fan of the restaurant. They don't serve water, because they say they don't have a tap, I wonder how they cook anything, or make miso soup. Just feels cheap to me. Who knows, maybe the water tastes bad, but at least they could give bottle water for free, thats cheap. We ordered our food, but it took a pretty long time to all come out, like 20 mins for 3 of our rolls, and another 10 for the last one. We had to ask twice about the missing one to make sure it wasn't forgotten. Ocean prime, purunga roll are tasty. The meal costed like $80 for not even that much food for 2 people. Definitely can get better value elsewhere, like Jin 28. Overall Ikkai is not my kind of place, but if you do want to try their food, order takeout.

I've lived here my whole life and have been a regular at another sushi spot in town for upwards of 10 years, so when my sister suggested this spot for our sushi night, I was skeptical. I SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SKEPTICAL. This place is a vibe, from the music to the decor to the presentation. And the sushi was incredible. It tasted so fresh and delicious I was speechless. Seriously, go here.

If you're in the downtown Naperville area, come here for great dine in service and as authentic as you can get sushi. The quality of fish is the best I've had in the area. Presentation is always on point. I'm not sure if this is still happening but earlier this year, the chef would give complimentary appetizers and dessert which was always appreciated. A note: THEY GET BUSY. Phone/take out orders usually take a while, especially during peak lunch and dinner hours. It's recommended to do it ahead of time if you don't want to be waiting. The actual restaurant is small as well and dine in could also have a wait time. We usually go right when they open or at an off time to be able to fully enjoy IKKAI. I have yet to try their rolls but so far, I really like their dons. Mainly the tekka and chirashi dons. Big cuts of fresh fish are my favorite. They don't skimp on anything. A bit pricey for each bowl, but if you're willing to treat yourself once in a while to sushi - it's worth it! Highly recommend supporting this family owned business.
