Sai Cafe Restaurant Review

: Ask an aficionado where to go for sushi in Chicago, and this crowded, reliable spot just might head the list. Nigiri, maki and hand rolls all are beautifully plated and crafted from generous cuts of ultra-fresh fish. Besides the usual, you'll find novelties like the spicy, creamy tako maki (chopped octopus mixed with fish eggs and spicy sesame mayo) and the Halloween, a creation of wasabi and black fish egg-topped salmon encasing rice and green been tempura. Cold appetizers, such as a raw oyster shooter with scallion and "secret sauce," fare well. Meanwhile, entrées like sukiyaki are standard.
