Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere. The staff was very friendly. We stayed for three nights and the first night couldn’t decide what we wanted so we went back all three nights and was never disappointed! The food was amazing and we were very pleased with...the service. Portion size is great as well, you will not leave hungry! Great place and we will definitely go back!More

This fusion restaurant is a much-needed addition to the neighborhood, with a lively, colorful vibe and a great menu. I liked the gyoza, the udon, and the pad thai, although their sushi is also really good. They have an eclectic variety of drinks as well....Prices are slightly on the higher end, but this is a change from the usual pubs and bars, and the food's well worth it.More

My overall critique is that of the dishes I tried there was too much sauce and its killed the flavors. I ordered the duck tacos, gyozas, drunken noodles and stir fry veggies. The noodles and veggies were pretty good, through the drunken noodle sauce didn't...quite taste right. The duck tacos were okay but - too much sauce, a good sauce but it overpowered everything. The gyozas I just couldn't eat. I threw them away after one bite. The sauce they were practically drowned in made the whole thing unappetizing.More

Chant is a fascinating Asian fusion plus Creole restaurant. Quality is very good in both cuisines. I had Jambalaya which had a generous portion of Shrimp in a tangy but not too hot sauce, and a lovely Shrimp appetizer with Cilantro and Jalapeño peppers. Others...in my party enjoyed their dishes too. Friendly and efficient service. Good wine selection too.More

Dined here with the family. Ordered the catfish, u-don noodles, turkey and basil wraps, quesadillas and salmon burger. Good comfort food and there’s something on the menu for everyone.

I went to this restaurant with very high expectations and left disappointed. The bus boy was more attentive than our waitress. Where do we start - alot of the items on the menu were not available - for appetizers we ordered the garlic fries (overcooked...and limp with jarred garlic) calamari (so so) and the Chant Shrimp Plate tempura style (ok, but way to greasy).My daughter wanted the Sambal Fried Catfish but I asked the waitress was it spicy because my daughter has a sensitive palate for spicy foods, apparently the waitress was knowledgeable regarding menu items. My daughter went with the orange chicken which also turned out to be spicy {insert pissed off emoji}. So I ordered the Pad See Ew for my daughter and I - which was disgusting (doughy noodles and a ton of soy sauce). My cousin order the short tib dinner which actually was pot roast. Two bites in my daughter's food she discovered broken egg shells in her food. I asked for the manager immediately, the manager removed the charge of the dish. With the bad experience we had I couldn't justify spending $75 for a meal that was left on the table. Needless to say we will find other restaurants to dine at for our annual girls day out.More

Everything was great in the beginning. Ordered Shrimp and Grits, Roast beef and Orange chicken. Food was excellent. Then ordered Carrot Cake for my 85 year old Mom. When it came, we cut it 3 ways. The cake was stale. We put the portions back...on the plate and sent it back. I then asked for brownie. They were out. I finally asked for the chocolate lava cake. It, too, tasted old. We ate a portion and was ready to check out. The waitress included the $8.00 stale cake on our tab. When I complained the manager showed up with the returned portions and said since we ate part of it, he refused to take it off the bill! I could not believe what I was hearing from this upscale restaurant! Our bill was $87 plus for three people. I was prepared to pay the kind waitress at least a $15.00 tip. Since the manager was "stuck on stupid", I paid the exact amount and saved my $15.00. I hated to stiff the waitress but I refused to be stiffed with the stale desert.More

Great restaurant in Hyde Park neighborhood near the University of Chicago...I was in town for business and saw the reviews. Boy am I glad I stopped in! Delicious drinks...poured generously by the bar tender. I ordered wings with some sort of thai sauce, I wish...I had taken a picture but they looked so good I just dived in! Apparently, they are a popular spot for their wings. I had the lollipop lamb chops for my entree. It came with green beans and mashed potatoes. My only complaint was that my food came out lukewarm however my server graciously took it back to have it warmed up. If you are ever on the Southside venture over to this cute little spot! You won't regret it !More

This is an incredible restaurant that looks Asian but serves the food as a standard Western dishes. We had the gyoza's which were spicy and delicious. They were a starter and we shared these as there must have been 20 gyoza's in the bowl. Main...course we had a cruchie Cashew chicken, served with jasmine rice and the lamb lollipop chops. This was served with mash potato. The portions again we're huge and so tasty you had to try to finish them. Cocktails are served and you should try them. There was live music but we missed this on the way out. High recommended, go hungry.More

Came here on my own, killing time (and hungry after a long walk along the shore) while my worser half was in a meeting. The waiter was welcoming and helpful. I cannot abide a waiter who has no opinions about what they serve - “everything’s...good;” “it depends what you like” makes me homicidal - and this guy had opinions. And they were good opinions! Why yes, I DID enjoy the cucumber martini, and the shrimp/avocado quesadilla turned out to be exactly what I was hungry for. I took avocado rolls to go for DH, and he reckoned they were the best he’d ever had. So yeah, I look forward to going back.More

I love Chant! Their pad see ew is astoundingly good, and for a higher range, nicer place, it's still very reasonable in pricing. I've had their cocktails as well and they're excellent.

Colleagues selected this restaurant and I decided to go solely because I saw duck tacos on the menu. They did not disappoint! Very flavorful and delicious, as was the cherry martini I had. Although food was good I'm not sure I'd go back and sit...there and eat as the place was loud and it was hard to have a conversation. Cute decor though. Since the ambiance wasnt my style I wouldnt dine in again but I would definitely do takeout.More

THe BEST food I’ve ever had. Actually dined lunch and dinner just to try other things on the menu. Customer service was second to none. Ate salmon, shrimp and grits, rolls the first time and it was to die for. Recommend this place!!!!!!!!! What a...great experience. Walking distance to both hotels in Hyde Park.More
