Seven of us met here for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was amazing! My favorite was Panang chicken but all dishes were yummy. The atmosphere is calm and hip and the wait staff was super friendly and efficient.

I have lived in Rogers Park for almost six years and have seen Indie go from an unknown BYOB to getting their liquor license. Even with all of the changes the one thing that has remained consistent is the quality of their food. They have amazing sushi, seriously I kid you not it is by far the freshest in the... More

It was the best when you compare Price with the food though. Spiciness is on point, flavor profiles are there, and location has a... More

This restraint is a really nice mix of southeastern and Japanese food with a great atmosphere and good value. When we got there there we got a seat on the quietier side of the place abd took a little while deciding what to order. We ended up with 6 plates of really great sushi and a starter of noodles to...

I happened to go to this restaurant while visiting family in the Edgewater neighborhood. It is a cute little place with very artistic decor. The sushi was excellent and they had a nice variety of choices as they serve sushi and thai dishes. When our dishes took a little longer than expected to prepare, the waiter kindly provided us with... More

My husband and I went there on advice from friends. It was busy, so I'd recommend reservation. We had sushi and thai, both were tasty.
