Quick service once we were seated. We ordered several dishes that were tasty - I had ordered a Lo Mein dish, I think they forgot about it and just served us a random dish towards the end of our meal. Overall, a good experience and...More

I imagine that this is like eating in Hong Kong. We dined with a group that have eaten at Chi Cafe regularly. I left the ordering to them so I can't really say specifically what we had, but it was all so very good.

Good place to have some authentic Chinese food. The hot and sour soup was very nice and the beef with vegetables and rice was good too. Would come back!

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
