Go for the food. I think they have been using the same actual menus since they opened. Someone needs to go to the printer! The entire place itself is in need of a refurb and you really do sit on top of other tables, it is crammed. You are not going here to have a deep and meaningful conversation. You are getting superb food though. Totally worth checking out.

Good wine selection with several bottle choices at reasonable fees. Feels off the beaten path but conveniently in River North area. Worth the visit.

We went here with friends to enjoy the food.

The Pad thai was delicious and the sushi was fresh. The kama sutra sushi was delicious and fresh. They were even nice enough to add on an extra piece for our friend without charging. The Ginger mojito was sweet. The staff was pleasant and accommodating to our requests.

Went to this Asian fusion restaurant after seeing a play at the Tribune Freedom Theater on Chicago ave., just a couple blocks away. We sat outside at cafe tables, but interior was also very pretty/chic. Everything we ate, from sushi appetizers to main courses to dessert was excellent and beautifully-presented, with fresh flavors. There was a good variety, including foods that appealed to gluten-free and vegetarian tastes, as well as seafood or meat options. We were there on a wed., when wine was $5--an added bonus. Individual appetizers were about $5 or $6, and entrees very reasonable, typically about $11. Service was so-so, but I guess you can't have it all.
