Amazing baked goods, the best I've had in urbana.
The first Omakase restaurant in Champaign. Exquisite Japanese cuisine and friendly couple. The fish and the nigiri are extraordinary. Make sure you arrived at least 15 min before each omakase hour for your seat. You get very bite of freshness out of the fish in this amazing restaurant. I’m grateful we have this in town.
Amazing place! You dont see $20 omakase everywhere and certainly not with this sort of freshness! The aji in this piece has such rich flavor, would definetly recommend.
Amazing food! Hands down the best authentic Japanese restaurant in town. Sushi literally melts in your mouth. The baked goods are also so good and reasonably priced. Ken and Kaori are both so talented and friendly. We are regulars here. (Seating is limited at this time due to Covid.) You must try this place and you won’t regret it.
I found Ishi after searching for sushi places in Champaign and was surprised to see a new spot with no reviews just a couple blocks from my house. After tasting the food, I cannot believe that they didn’t have a line wrapping around the block. Chef Ken has created a space that is authentic, personal, and I can tell he is passionate about the food he is sending out. The quality of the food and the overall atmosphere is completely unmatched by any other sushi restaurant in town. How many other places here have a sushi bar that you *actually* sit at, watch your nigiri be prepared, and get to talk to the chef about the food?
I paid $30 for the dine-in only omakase plus a piece of uni a la carte. Even though it was “only” 10 pieces of sushi, I left completely full and still feeling like it was a steal based on the quality of the fish alone. Since the menu rotates weekly, I am not sure if this dish will be on again anytime soon but the Hokkaido scallop topped with toro was a highlight.
They also offer a selection of baked goods and other entrees, so if you don’t have the time to sit down or you’re not dining in right now you can still experience some of their awesome food.
All of that to say, come here for lunch. You absolutely will not be disappointed.
