Ive never been one for "raw food" but I must say as a first time
sushi go-er I was pleasently surprised! The food was amazing and
visually pleasing. But I think what really made Edo stand apart
was the intimate atmosphere and the very friendly service. The
sushi chef greets you from behind the sushi bar as you walk in
and has a gracious repore with previous customers who have
obviously come back for more. My fiance and I are repeat
I've been going to Edo's for over 12 years and I love it!
It's one of my favorite restaurants because I'm always made to
feel welcome, like family.
The atmosphere is cozy (not too fancy, not overdone, but homey
and subtle) and the food is always great....Such a solid place.
I have to admit my expectations were pretty low. While the
ambience is not terrific, the staff is exceedingly friendly, and
the rolls are superb! I did not have a lot of time and was by
myself, so I was limited in what I could sample, but the Navy
Pier roll, White Tuna Special roll, and Spider roll were
terrific! I can't wait to go back and sample more! It definitely
gives Fuji in Orland Park a run for it's money!
I eat here several times per month. I've eaten sushi all over
the Chicago metro, including those places you see on billboards
like Kamehachi. And, as far as the sushi goes, Edo's leaves them
all in the dust. Yes, it is a hole in the wall; and, the decor
is simple. However, I'm not eating the wallpaper. I'm there for
the sushi. What does Edo's give you that I have received NO
WHERE else in Ilinois sushi joints? A genuine, warm welcome the
second you pop through the door. The owners are nearly always on
site; and, they prepare and serve the sushi as if you were the
Emperor of Japan himself. How often do you go anywhere these
days and get service with a genuine smile? Yeah, I rest my case.
I'm actually going there again tonight. I am a huge fan of the
Miami roll and the Navy Pier roll. While I live in Joliet, there
is no need to make the trek to Chicago to get good sushi. I have
FABULOUS sushi, right here, in my own back yard.
Awesome little place... I arrived 10 minutes before they opened,
and immediately had a good vibe since, there were already over 7
people waiting at the door before they even opened. I'm a Junkie
of Spicy Mayo.. at certain locations. Needless to say I didn't
even NEED to ask for spicy mayo the rolls were awesome went to
EDO with a non sushi lover and we had 4 rolls..the Miami,
Hawaian , Spicy tuna as well as Spicy Samon. Great place..
service is awesome! and the food was as fresh as could be.. Will
visit back often.

OUTSTANDING! My hubby and I went there the day after Valentine
Day (got some rescue pups on v-day see cbbr) and had their unagi
sushi, caterpillar roll, MIAMI ROLL - BEST, and a Red Dragon
roll. I have been to all the best sushi places in Chicago ($200
dinning) and was delighted to have the gift of awesome Japanese
food in Crest Hill/Joliet area. My husband was nearly in tears,
he loved it so much. He woke up talking about it in the
morning... strange,but true. I told him we had to wait a while
to go back since going two nights in a row would be weird. Ha!

This restaurant is in Crest Hill not Joliet, just to alleviate
any confusion. I just wanted to take the time and write a review
of this outstanding sushi restaurant. I moved to joliet from San
Diego and did not expect to find a sushi restaurant this good in
this area but i did. coming from california...the sushi capital
of the usa, i can tell you that EDO in crest hill is as good as
any sushi restaurant i have been to. If you like sushi spend
your money here instead of traveling to chicago.......big fancy
city does not equal good food.

Wow, what a find. If you are able to make a stop in Crest Hill,
make your dinner at Edo. I've been going for quite some
time(since Cho) and I still rate their sushi above all others. I
am forced to go to other places via friends, business dinners,
etc, and they never match up with Edo. The closest I've had to
their flavor is Todai in Shaumburg, IL. While Todai had a much
large selection, is still wasn't as tasty and fresh as Edo. I
even rate Benihana below Edo, as the atmosphere and taste are
still under par. For the price(which really is great compared to
high end sushi bars), you get the same great taste. And the
tempura and rice selections are very good. I think I'll make it
there for lunch tomorrow!

Edo's is simply a great restaurant. I go there ca. once a week.
I always enjoy their great Sushi but also other foods offered.
The people are friendly, the atmosphere is nice. Overall a nice
destination spot to bring your family or to simply try some
GREAT Sushi!! I also brought many work associates there and
everybody says the same. I don't know who would not like the
place. It's not fency. If you like simple, good, clean & healthy
food, then you'll love Edo's! I'm lovin' it!
Went to Edo's on the advice of my friend Steve who is obsessed
with Japanese food and culture. Before today, I had never had
Japanese food and I was pleasantly surprised at the way the food
at Edo's was simultaneously different and accessible. I had a
three sushi variety sampler which came with California rolls
with lobster, fried tempura including carrot, potato and shrimp
and a really fresh salad. The complimentary soup was delicious
and the sake (pronounced sock-aye remember) went down warm and
The service was more than accomodating and friendly with
sometimes two servers at once checking on us together.
Oh and they have Ramune, a great Japanese soda that comes in
different fruit flavors. The marble inside the bottle is a
My experience here was great and the lunch went down very well.
Who would have known this easy-to-miss little joint would be so
great. They will get many more visits from me. Another great gem
(along with Disc Replay) located in the shopping plaza at the
corner of Larkin and 30. After eating artery-clogging pizza and
burgers for so much lately, it was refreshing to taste the fresh
and lite cuisine at Edo's. Thumbs up!
