This is what other people are saying about Toro Sushi.

I had read a bit about Sushi Toro before trying for the first time - I knew fellow yelpers raved about the place and I also learned that Chicago Magazine ranked it as the best sushi in 2007.  But, oh my, is this place phenomenal.  Wow!  Wow!!  Wow!!!

The fish is fresh and served in healthy quantities.  The service is great, very genuine.  Ask for suggestions, there're rolls not on the menu.  

The only drawback, the place is tiny and a bit cramped.  Expect a bit of a wait, and don't go with a group.  But, do go!

"Dear Mitch,  

Thank you for being in Chicago.  My sushi meals are now in your hands and your hands only.   Love always, Amy"

Seriously, though, we had wonderful sushi and Mitch was such a gracious host.  I had the ikura, the amaebi, the super white tuna and the hamachi nigiri.  I also ordered the kami kazi which was so good I got a little dizzy.  Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared.  Mitch was so sweet, he gave me a free salmon sashimi 'dessert'.

I usually have nigiri but after seeing Mitch's wonderful maki creations, I will probably try more maki.

This place is BYOB!!!!

Please note that the wait will be horredous and take out will be 1 to 1.5 hours but it will be well worth it!
