“Best BYOB Sushi in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Tried Butterfly in the West Loop last week and I was super impressed with the quality of the sushi. We loved each roll and fully enjoyed the BYOB option. The servers do try to rush you in and out, but don't let that scare you away.

“Not bad for the US”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

The most irritating thing about ordering Thai food in the US is they never believe me when I say HOT! Fresh spring rolls are very good but weird, maple syrup like substance on top. Thai Eggplant was very good but not even close to hot. Pad Thai, not so good.

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This out of the way restaurant on West Grand has some of the best sushi in the city and the prices are more than reasonable.

The sushi is the reason to come here. Large, fresh pieces of nigiri sushi and a large selection of maki rolls make it worth while to head out here.

Be sure to make reservations as it gets very crowded on weekends. It's also BYOB so plan ahead but there's no corkage fee and they bring an ice bucket to the table to keep your wine chilled.

We'll definitely be back soon.

“Amazing food, great price, wonderful service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

I am new to Chicago and was in the neighborhood. I took a chance on picking a random restaurant and was pleasantly surprised! Service was fabulous and food was delicious and plentiful for a great price. When I found out that it was BYOB, that was a bonus. I'll definitely be back.

This restaurant gives one of my favorite restaurants a run for its money. Looking forward to exploring more of its offerings.
