Sushi Para, Palatine Informative - Not As Bad As Everyone Makes It Sound
I won't lie. Sushi para makes it difficult not to feel gluttonous. There's a large selection available that includes both maki and nigiri sushi as well as tempura, salads and soups, and I can say at least from my own experience that the maki WASN'T overly 'ricey.' Although not the most amazing sushi I've ever had in my life, I can confidently say it was more than worth the cost for the
availability and quality.
The staff was accommodating to us even though we were unsure of our eventual party size and the dining room was packed. This alone should be an indication that Sushi Para is doing its job well. The service was slow, but we received drinks and appetizers quickly (very good quality edamame served and nicely prepared). The Sake Nigiri was delicious when it arrived. I would say the service could use a little inspiration, but they were not rude, and even served extra masago on the side for my picky coworker.
It gets a solid B in my book. The price is more than worth it as long as you don't try to take advantage. At the very least, finishing a big plate with friends could be a fun challenge. The service is slow, but accommodating and kind. The variety and quality are good. Please don't let a couple of irate customers with expectations that would run any business into to the ground ruin the opportunity of a fun and relatively inexpensive night of all you can eat sushi for you. They even use real crab. :)
