Great sushi at an affordable price – I have been a regular for about 3 years now. I eat here about 3 or 4 times a week, I never get sick of it. I have to admit the first time my sushi easting friend took me here I did not like it because I was only used to the sushi across the street from them. Little did I know that every sushi place is different. Now I go there all the time and have left the place across the street in the dust! I didn't think the service was great in the beginning but now that I'm a regular they know what I order and bring it to me right away. I always order teriyaki sauce on the side and a few of the waitresses remember that and bring it right away, I love that! It has recently gone under new management and they have spruced the place up a bit. It looks a lot better than it did and I believe it is more attractive to passer bys. I sure like it! I think the owner has another restaurant on clark and belmont under a different name and they put my favorite sushi chef, Don Luis, at the new place which I'm not happy about but I continue to go to this place SEVERAL times a week. My favorite roll is the dynamite roll with avocado and I always ask for them to roll it with less rice and its never a problem. Their bathroom is always clean too. You can tell a lot about the restaurant by how clean the bathroom is. This is a place with metered parking and it can be rough to find parking but I live 4 blocks away and drive to Nohana often. I can't remember the last time I couldn't find a parking...you have to think positive! I love their happy hour but the prices have gone up, however, they are still great prices for sushi. Remember though 12-1 and 5-6. The restaurant doesn't open until 12 and closes at 2:30 then reopens for dinner at 5. If you like good sushi and don't want to spend an entire paycheck then Nohana is the place to try and it won't disappoint.
Always good sushi! – I thinked I lived off their sushi for an entire summer. The food was excellent--nothing overly artsy, but consistently good sushi. And it's fairly easy on the wallet.
Great low-key place for sushi – Its not the fanciest place around, but Nohana has great sushi at a very affordable price. Plus their service is very fast and friendly.
Fresh sushi and friendly atmosphere have gained this Lakewiew storefront a loyal following. – In Short
On weekend nights, the line spills out the door at this neighborhood favorite; two brightly lit rooms have a traditional, modest look of blond-wood tables and mostly unadorned walls. The menu offers Japanese fare like edamame and goma ae (boiled spinach with peanut sauce) and various noodle dishes, but the focus is on fresh nigiri--vivid pink tuna, buttery salmon, sweet crab and more resting on sticky rice, a dab of pungent wasabi in between.
great sushi, good price – Nohana has been my favorite sushi restaurant in Chicago for 3 years now. The service is efficient, albeit not very flexible. The fish is almost always fresh, (in 3 years of being a regular I have run into a few times where the fish was less than average). However, the majority of the time is simply melts in your mouth. I've tried MANY other sushi restaurants in Chicago and have yet to find a place that can beat the value of Nohana. It is excellent sushi at a reasonable price. Not fancy, but high quality and affordable.
Flipper and Bear's Pick – A great sushi spot. Especially sushi happy hours from 12-1 or 5-6, where all sushi pieces are $1. The sushi is fresh and tasty. It is close to public transportion. And inspired my poetic side:
Down on Broadway past all the quaint shops,
a little eating-place where Flipper and Bear stop.
Sushi happy hour from five to six.
Tuna, Sake, a fresh fish mix.
Flipper eats miso soup with lots of rice.
Bear orders yellow tail not once, but twice.
Wasabi straight up, without any soy.
Another piece please for Bear to enjoy!
One fish, two fish – Great food at an amazing price. Definitely my fave sushi place in the city. The service is prompt and courteous, and if you sit at the bar, you can watch your dinner being made. The Party Tray is an unbelieveable deal, but make sure you are hungry!Check the hours before you head out though, as they are only open for the lunch rush and dinner. Well worth the trip.
