We felt like having some Sushi so we went to Hot Woks Cool Sushi. The environment was good but noisy. We ordered 2 Spicy Tuna Maki (in case you're wondering maki means Sushi) Alaskan Maki, Panang Curry, and some Jasmine Rice. The Alaskan Maki was good, the Spicy Tuna Maki was also good but could have been spicier, The Panang... More

I ordered miso soup, crab rangoons, and a California roll. The miso soup was good, but let's be honest that really can't be messed up. The crab rangoons were different and not to my taste. They were more like a crab salad mix instead of creamy texture but that's just my preference. The California roll was average. It was cut... More

We went here hoping to get some good food and soup on a cold day. It seems like the mashed a lot of different types of Asian food into one menu and you end up with ok food. The service was not very good at all, had to wait a long time for water and tea. We ordered gyoza dumplings,... More

I love Thai and this place is pretty close to the top for taste, presentation and atmosphere. The panang curry was excellent - this rich and plenty of sauce to soak the rice in with generous portions of chicken and vegetables.

Ate dinner here on a Sunday night. About a 10-minute walk from the Palmer House Hilton, which, surprisingly, didn’t even recommend it as one of the better local sushi restaurants. Compared to Ryo Sushi where we ate the next day for lunch, it was head and shoulders superior. My daughter had a couple of their signature rolls while I enjoyed... More

I go to this restaurant because it is one of the only ones in the area that has table services, takes reservations, and has reasonable prices. There are several restos nearby that have table service and take resv, but they are more expensive than I typically want to pay for lunch with friends. Many other affordable options nearby that do...

Great service. I ordered Pad Thai for dinner. The noodles tasted so-so. But the reason for a one-star review is that the noodles were loaded with MSG. After dinner, I spent the whole night drinking a lot of water.

It was really easy to get a table on a Saturday night, which was surprising. There was a variety of different kinds of Asian cuisine on the menu. We ordered a sushi roll (spicy crunchy salmon), which was very tasty. While it was ordered as an appetizer, it came out with our entrees. I ordered a cashew chicken (Thai) and... More

We had great service, and both my husband and I really enjoyed our meal. We ordered a sushi roll, and two Thai dishes - but there are other kinds of Asian cuisine on their menu as well. I like that there was a wide variety of menu offerings. We were also able to get a table without a wait and... More

Bento box offered some value for the meal. About $13-15 for each box. Efficient service and good atmosphere.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
