Solid meal - convenient location

We were looking for an early dinner near the NFL Draft venue. The food was tasty - not the best - but each of us enjoyed each dish. The appetizers were delicious. If you're looking for a reasonably priced meal in the area, this is certainly as restaurant to consider.

Clean place, tastefully decorated. Servers friendly and very attentive. Good prices, good portions, SO good!!! Between the 3 of us we ordered a chicken bento box, signatute sushi roll, shrimp fried rice, crab rangoons, and petite eggrolls. Again, OMG. The eggrolls were sooo cute and teeny but the flavor was perfect. No fillers here, stuffed with chicken and shrimp, perfectly... More

We visited for the first time and were very happy with the service and overall experience. We ordered Sushi and two Chicken Entrees and they were simply delicious. Great place to go.

This restaurant serves exceptional food. The pad kee Mao is a must - tastes great with just the right amount of spice. Service is very good too.

Their's is the 2nd Asian restaurant in which the food is not greasy. I love their Crab Ragoon, their Pad Thai, martini's, anything other than sushi--not my cup of tea. Although I have visited their location on Michigan avenue, my favorite spot is the Adams location near Union Station. The restaurant is BEAUTIFUL as well as their bathroom. Bathroom is... More

It's always wonderful to have favourite dishes and add some new things for the kids to try. The panang noodle is great, but the pad kee mao is my absolute favourite dish on the menu. A perfect combination of savoury and spice, with just the right amount of heat. We added a few sushi rolls to change it up for... More

The sushi was absolutely delicious and the service was top notch (caring, attentive and knowledgeable). The food was reasonable in pricing, but the drinks were over-priced. We were comfortable and warm on a cold Saturday evening and never felt rushed.

I've been to Hot Woks Cool Sushi in the past a few times. We decided to grab a quick lunch here after walking around Millennium Park. I was not disappointed this time. The lunch prices are incredibly inexpensive. We had the teriyaki chicken bento, tuna tataki, and Blackhawks roll. The sushi was really fresh and flavorful. The teriyaki sauce tasted... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
