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!

We found this little gem after our Loop Tour that ended across the street at Millennium Park. We were seated immediately at a table up front with a great view to people watch. Our waiter quickly took our drink order while we decided on a light dinner. We had a tuna avocado sashimi roll and a cold spring roll wrap... More

I'm finally writing a review of this restaurant...I often eat here when I come to Chicago for business. This location on Michigan Avenue is close to the Palmer House Hilton, where I often stay when in the city. They have a wide variety of noodle dishes and sushi. I have even gotten their sushi to go, to take with me... More

Had the Penang Noodles. Too much sauce. I had to push sauce aside. Otherwise I found the flavours were ok and the noodles were not overcooked. It was average Asian food in a very convenient location on Michigan Ave (near Millennium Park & The Art Institute).

Wanting sushi for dinner we popped into this little restaurant. I was slightly worried it would be generic food, but was pleasantly surprised by the freshness of the fare. The Spicy Wings are fantastic - get them. The sushi is well presented and good quality. The stir fry vegetables are fresh and the sauces are homemade.

We went for lunch after a long walk. A group of people were leaving the place and a young lady said to us "good food, rude service". We look at each other and decided to stay. We seat outside and I went inside to get the waitress attention. I don't know if we were lucky but she was very nice.... More

We stopped at Hot Woks Cool Sushi after visiting the Art Institute. We came at a great time and were seated right away. We could look out the windows and watch folks playing in the fountain at Millennium Park. My daughter had a variety of sushi rolls, and I tried the beef and broccoli. Everything was tasty, and prices were... More
