    Love the brunch menu! Chicken waffle is a must. All the crispy rice patty dishes are good. Sweet potato caterpillars sushi is good. Mimosas are good but small! You can pay with opentable.

    Amazing sushi! Start w/ the saketini, oxtail pot stickers, rock shrimp tempura. Get crispy rice spicy tuna jalapeño and escolar "the great white". Both to die for. Then have more "living jewel" sake.

    They had a couple of vegan options and all were yummy. We started with the shisito peppers & shiitake edamame dumplings. For entree we shared the sweet potato caterpillar roll. The pad Thai was ehh.

    Ask for the vegan menus, from salads and dumplings to pad Thai and vegan sushi, you’ll be definitely happy with the offerings. Even a really nice vegan chocolate cake for desert.

    They have an entire vegan menu! And a gluten free one. I loved the sweet potato roll. Also, the cocktails were delicious, but not very strong. The pear sake was my favorite drink!

    Sunda is doing an East-only a la carte menu with 1) tempura French toast with fresh berries, brown sugar-glazed bananas, and whipped cream, 2) a salmon wrap, and 3) petite NY steak and eggs. Read more

    Since the River North spot has so much fresh fish in rotation, you’ll get to choose from more exotic fare such as escolar and octopus. Read more

    Best sushi in Chicago! They have awesome Toro and sashimi. Highly recommend Great White, Tiger Shrimp Tempura, and Peared Sake! Their Rainbow Roll is classic and not too Westernized.

    Best sushi I have ever had in the States! After living in South America along the coast for a few years, it was finally nice to find another sushi joint that had truly fresh & tender sashimi!

    Absolutely delicious food, the decoration is really classy and suitable, and the service is just amazing, they know their menu (ask for Ryan) . Only issue is that the place is to noisy!

    Amazing sushi and inventive Asian. Kalbi wraps are a must, any sushi with truffle is also a go to. Skip dessert.

    Some of the best sushi places in the Chi! The lobster and wagyu roll and the tuna truffle nigiri are fantastic.

    An amazing restaurant, I try to get to it every time I am in town. Try the tempura rock shrimp or the Brussel Sprout Salad. The Lobster Wagu roll...cue the drooling...now.

    Make reservations. If possible request the area on the other of the bar by the windows. Is quaint little quieter and thought is was romantic - different ambience the main dinning area

    Love the food here. The staff is very helpful. During the week is very enjoyable because it's not too crowded and you can enjoy the atmosphere a bit more.

    One of my favorite dining spots! If you spot Billy Dec, be sure to say hello. Scott is the BEST manager around. He takes the time to speak to patrons. (Order the rock shrimp tempura. It's heavenly!)

    Fancy fusion restaurant that does a little bit of everything Asian complete with Buddha statues. Great ambience but fairly pricey. #wifi

    Not sure that it's possible to go wrong here. Definitely try anything with pork belly (steamed buns, pig on a stick, & braised pork belly) & the rock shrimp. Cocktails are to die for!

    Appetizer: Rock Shrimp Tempura. Entrees: Pan Roasted Duck Breast, Miso-Bronzed Black Curry, two rolls: Sweet Potato Caterpillar and Spicy Tuna. Dessert was a refreshing coconut pudding. Great meal.

    Go with a group and sit at the Chef's table. The Brussel sprout salad and kale and seaweed salads and edamame shitake dumplings make great starters.

    Some great Sake flights and one of the best epic Bloody Mary's in the city! Oh and the sushi's pretty good too :)

    Shaking beef is delicious but the pieces of meat are a little too big to eat with chopsticks. California roll is awesome as well as the pad Thai chicken that my boyfriend got. Definite repeat!

    Innovative Asian fusion dishes with a decent vegan menu. Try the crispy Brussels sprouts salad and the mushroom adobo.

    On our must-order list: lemongrass beef lollipops with spicy chili glaze and kobe beef sashimi with truffled vinaigrette. (And keep an eye out for celebs like Jeremy Piven, a fan.)

    I love me a shaved Brussels sprouts salad. Scorpion roll was pretty good too. Make a reservation this place can get busy.

    A little pricey, but you at least get a lot of bang for your buck. The pancit and sweet potato roll are highly recommended.

    Best Old Fashion cocktail that I have ever had. Food is excellent. Brussel Sprout salad is a standout. Skip desert. It's the one place they fall short.
