Great Sushi Bar

Lunch specials are a great value. 25% off the sushi at lunch will keep me coming back. Teppan tables are a lot of fun if you have a group.

Definitely worth a visit

I was out in Rockford for a business trip and wanted to try some teppan yaki. JMK was recommended to me by a local and so I decided to check it out. The restaurant looks great. Nice decor, good lighting. The food was very good. The scallops were amazing! Overall, I had a great experience. I plan on going again since I'm back in Rockford.

Good sushi, good food, good fun

I loved this resturant!! I have been entertaining large groups and small here for years!! The food and entertainment is the best around. Sushi, nippon grills and kareoke under 1 roof, not to mention the best mai tai around!!

Rockford's best Japanese restaurant

Spectacular food, well prepared by pretty good chefs who avoided cutting themselves up or burning the clients. Well-defined procedures allow the service to be excellent. Watch out for waiters ""forgetting"" to let you know that the fried rice is $2 extra (the steamed rice is part of the meal, but if you want different...) I plan to use this restaurant more often so we can enjoy exploring the menu's fine offerings.

When I want to go to best restaurant in town I go here. This is a five star restaurant. I've been going here 30 years and it has always been excellent.....

By far the best restaurant I have been to. I have been to this fine establishment many times and will continue to do so for a long time to come.

Bad Experience? They do not care!

Don't expect them to do much if you have a bad experience. I just called to complain about a bad experience I had last night, I told them everything and she says they will give me a credit for 10%, wth?!?! Wow so they are going to pay my tax... big deal! I will not be returning. The "manager says" I'll have to look into this but It's hard to rectify it after the fact". Clearly this is a money hungry place that could care less of you are happy or not. They are booked every weekend so clearly they are not hurting for money. I have been going here for 20+yrs even before they had their nice expensive building they have now. I will definitely not be returning and will not recommend this place to anyone anymore. Hopefully you have a better experience than me because they don't care whether or not you do!

Consistently good

We have eaten here on numerous occasions. Food and service is always good. The only problem is lengthy wait times on weekends even with a reservation. Nothing the bar can't make bearable!

Best value for good sushi within 50 miles for lunch. Great atmosphere...Try the crunch roll - Heaven on a platter.
