The food was average, noting special but the service was the worst. I have never been to a restaurant with that kind of bad service. They offer the lunch sushi buffet, but the owner, which is the server was not too happy if you order more sushi. They keep warning you, if you cannot finish it, you have to pay extra. We end up ording more and she gave us a dirty look and was very rude. Buffet is all-you-can-eat, if she doesn't like people that can eat, then she shouldn't have the sushi buffet. I will never go back there again.

ive been to many sushi restaurants before.. but this was far the worst place ive been too. the atmosphere looked nice so i tried going in.. and the sushi i guess wasnt too bad.. but the service was really bad. i think the server was the owner of the restaurant.. but he did not know what he was doing. when our food came out.. he didnt pay attention to it and seemed rather more focused on talking to his employees. our food came out really late and he didnt show that he cared.

My husband and I eat at this restaurant at least once a month. We started out because it is close to our house however we now go back because we enjoy the food and the service is unbeatable! We recommend this to anyone in our neighborhood!

I love Kohan! The sushi is awesome! Contrary to some of the other reviews, Kohan's sushi is well-priced and the food is awesome. I recommend the UIC roll, if you like somewhat spicy rolls. It also has avocado and it's fried - I love crunchy sushi. I also recommend anything from their teppan grill, especially the steak and the shrimp. It has a lot of variety with maki/sushi as well as great steak, chicken, and seafood from the grill! It's also in a great location. Their ice cream is good, too! =)

We went to Kohan on our lunch hour. We were basically the first to arrive. It gradually filled about halfway. Given that it took way to long (close to 40 minutes) to get our food. The sushi tasted fresh. The White tuna was fabulous. All of the nigiri sushi was sliced too thin - really lowering the value for me. The rice was a bit vinegary for my tastes. And there was no little surprise wasabe schmmear under the sushi! I would try it again just to see if we hit on an off day. Al-in-all I got the feeling that they skimped on the serving sizes with the thinly sliced fish to keep prices down low enough to attract some of the college crowd.

Contrary to other reviewers, I LOVE the sushi at Kohan. I would eat it every day, 2 meals per if I could. They have delicious hand rolls, exotic nigiri (my husband loves the black caviar) and some crazy-delicious signature maki rolls I've become very fond with. As mentioned, the careful and evocative plating and presentation of Kohan really impresses me--it's totally on par with many top-end restaurants (I got a flame roll that was actually plated above a blue flame thingy--amazing!). Ok, all this being said, the PROBLEM with Kohan is that I can't eat there everyday because the food is sooo expensive. My husband and I spent $45 last time and still wished we could have had more. I really really wish Kohan had some sushi deals (since they do have box lunches that are quite nice deals), or a sushi happy hour or something, anything, so that I could go there and stuff myself full of sushi more often. P.S. I love you Kohan but I also have to say that the karaoke thing on Friday and Saturday nights. The place would be better if it tried to maintain a romantic, more upscale to match its prices.

Kohan is a great new sushi place that hasn't yet been discovered. Kohan offers a great selection of rolls, most of which are between $10 and $15. It's great for large groups, because they offer great non-sushi, with a full teppan grill. A new chef just joined Kohan and they now offer a custom designed dinner, based on your fish likes and dislikes, and how much you want to spend - a great way to try new rolls. It's been easy to get a table since it opened, but that's going to change as more people make their way to Maxwell Street.
