This little hole in the wall is a privately owned gem that has been handed down from father to son for many years. My mom ate here in Sept. 1968, the night before I was born. When she went into labor, people said it was the chinese food giving her indigestion. lol That could explain why this has been my favorite place to eat all my life. My family knows I really care about someone when I share MY restaurant with them. The food is high quality- not buffet quality, with excellent flavor. The servings are large enough for two people, or even better, leftovers! Deluxe meals are served in courses four courses- soup of choice, appetizer plate (egg roll, spare rib, & puffed shrimp), main course, and dessert of almond cookie & fortune cookie. Ice cream is also available for self-service. I've searched the country & never found eggrolls as good as these...made with bean sprouts as opposed to cabbage. My husband was not sure about that at first, but now wont eat eggrolls from anywhere else. The spare ribs are a sweet barbeque that pull easily off the bone. The duck is wonderful without a gamey taste. The beef is always tender. Some people dont like it, because their minds are set to the all-you- can-eat buffet type chinese food, but if you like an actually dining experience sans sneeze guard, try this place! Warning:If it says spicy, don't be like my son-in-law & request extra spicy unless you want it habanero hot as opposed to just chili pepper hot.
I've eaten here both in groups and alone and never been disappointed. One minor gripe with most sushi restaurants is the turn-around time between ordering and food delivery...Sushi Zushi has it figured out. I have never waited more than 15 minutes for my sushi order, and it generally arrives in under 10. They have a variety of specialty house rolls, but I generally stick to the traditional favorites here. Their Unagi is exceptional (I get it every time and eat it last, it's like dessert [although not sweet, don't be mislead]). The Spider roll is top-notch, and the roe they put in their roe offerings is very well-chosen with great flavor. If you're something of a sushi conneisseur but dining on a budget, you can get 3-4 orders for about $30. When I dine alone, I generally get 3 orders (rolls/sashimi) and walk away only $22-23 poorer (I order water). It's a shame more people don't know about this restaurant because the storefront isn't visible from Oak Lawn Ave., but they recently wised up and put a sign at street level directing patrons to their location behind Benihana. They also deliver sushi, although I have never ordered delivery.
I'm very picky when it comes to restaurants, so there's not many that I like, but this one is pretty good. The food was fresh and higher quality than I'm used to at a buffett, and everybody who worked there was perfect, the whole place is also very clean. It took a while to find because the GPS showed it was South of the highway, when it was actually on the North side next to IHOP. The food selection was the same as what you will get at any chinese buffett. I'm very happy with my experience everytime I go there, another big reason for that is because the young women who works at the entrance is very pretty and friendly. I actually try to go there on Friday's because I found that she has more time to talk with me, because the rest of the weekend that she's there is very busy. I'm glad I tried this place, and like I told my friends it definitly is worth a try.
