great food

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

Very, very enjoyable. ..food was good, wait.. food was great!... The wait staff was helpful, and patience, as we just wanted to socialize and reconnect. There was a hostess that came around during dinner and seemed a bit pushy, perhaps we had been there so long and the table wasn't being turned over...but, overall our experience was good

Dined in on a Thursday night, table for 2 by the window, was not at all cold and had a lovely view of the busy street and park outside. The food prices were very reasonable. Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Unfiltered cold saki was most pleasing. Cannot say enough good things. They don't offer any ice cream type of... More

Ate here last night for dinner. Waiter was very attentive and friendly. I ordered Yum Tom soup and Panang Chicken with noodles. I've had this soup elsewhere many times previously and this version was medicore. Not very spicy and filled with vegetables I didn't expect to find, such as big chunks of tomatoes and green peppers. The Panang sauce was... More

A decent Asian place on Michigan across from Millennium Park. Standard fare with a Thai and sushi focus. I had the Udon with Shrimp tempura to help me warm up from the cold wind. It was perfectly fine but not outstanding. Same with the tuna avocado roll. Service was efficient and prices reasonable. The decor is bright and there is... More

Found this little place while walking to the train and decided to stop in. I almost wish I hadn't because it's ruined sushi anywhere else for me....nothing can beat the Fukadome roll and nothing has even come close. All their sushi is really good, but man, does that roll take the cake!
