A word from Anna's Asian Bistro
When you visit ANNA'S, you'll experience the authentic home cooking that Chef Noy and owner Anna Makmok (mother and daughter!) have enjoyed all their lives. Their inventive, expansive and affordable menu features the cuisines of Thailand, Japan, Korea, India, Laos and beyond. Start with something crispy - like Japanese stuffed avocodo or tempura, Thai chicken wings or Indian samosa. Perhaps a Japanese pork kabob or Peking duck bun is more to your liking. Saigon and Bangkok rolls, miso, Tom Yum or Mama Ginger soup plus a salad will round out your first course. For a main dish, try Mongolian steak or chicken, ginger scallops, or Laotian curry noodles. ANNA'S original sushi items are much in demand and include Chef's Signature dishes and nearly 30 varieties of makimono! Or you can choose by the piece and design your own dinner from the sushi bar. ANNA'S boasts three beautiful dining areas - the Mirror Room, the Circle Room and the more intimate Fireside Room. See you at ANNA'S!Continued

  • "Anna does a terrific job with her Asian fusion food. I say "fusion" because it's a number of various Asian foods; not one type. I love the Volcano soup and everything on the menu is great. It's BYO so the price stays low. They open the wine and even give you an ice bucket for the white wine. Very attentive service."

  • "This place may not seem like much on the outside but inside the ambiance is very nice. My friends and I ordered a few dishes to share. I'm a vegetarian so I opted out on the meat dishes. They loved the stuffed avocado. I had the sweet potato tempura, spicy basil rice with tofu and drunken noodles with tofu which were all great. Usually vegetarian sushis are plain but the sweet potato tempura was packed with flavor! The ice cream they served was delicious as well. The service was a little slow but otherwise it was a great experience."

  • "Place was nice and clean. However we went on Valentines evening. What was unannounced to us was a fixed menu at a set price. The service was incredibly slow due to not having enough wait staff to service tables in a timely manner. We waited over and hour just to get the first course of a 3 course meal from a fixed menu. This was not my idea of a good time at a restaurant I have never been. We just wanted to leave after the first hour and a half. Nice place but I am sure I missed the best of what this place could have been. Unfortunately with all the places to enjoy in Chicago I will be hard pressed to return to this restaurant."

  • "My boyfriend and I come here at least once a week. They have some of the freshest, most reasonably-priced nigiri in Chicago. Great ambiance for a date and its no-fee BYOB!"

  • "Anna's is our favorite spot for a cozy date night or a fun dinner with a big group of friends. The food is incredible, and you can't beat a BYOB for value. Typically, fusion can mean doing many things but none of them well, but Anna's is the exception to the rule. They have killer sushi, wonderful curries, and even delightful Indian samosas. Anna the owner is always there with a smile and always takes great care of us. A must try just a block off Randolph street."

  • "We had heard of Anna's but only just tried it on Saturday. (We have traveled extensively through Asia and had yet to find the same Asian flavors in Chicago) First impression was a bit bright and " take-away " in feeling, but we found a table in the back and enjoyed some very special dishes. The stuffed avocado appetizer and seared tuna were amazing. Cashew chicken and duck a must. It's great flavors, fresh cuisine and BYO."

  • "I was very pleased with the service. I showed up with 2 more people, and they were very accommodating knowing the fact that the placed was full. The stuffed avocado is a MUST have! It was so good! I will definitely go back to Anna's Asia Bistro soon."

  • "This remains my absolute favorite restaurant in Chicago. I've brought a few people to Anna's now and they've loved it too. The ambiance is perfect, just the right mix between casual and fancy. It really works for any occasion. And everything I've had there has been absolutely delicious. I personally love the stuffed avocado and roasted sweet chili chicken, but my Dad ordered something else last time we went that might have been even better. Never had a bad dish there!"

  • "A little bit off the beaten path, it doesn't look spectacular from the outside, but once you get inside it is very pleasant and has a good atmosphere. There was a man playing guitar on the night we were there which was nice. The good was very good, a little bit less expensive than comparable restaurants. I would definitely come back here again for sushi!"

  • "Terrible service. The waiter looked around at the two large parties at the restaurant every time he came by out table. While the food was good, the terrible service was embarrassing as it was plan as a dinner to meet old friends."

  • "the server was great but a misunderstanding left one entree to be delivered after we had started with the others."

  • "We were visiting Chicago and found this place well-priced and well-reviewed on Open Table. They are just on the outskirts of the neighborhood so we were a little unsure about the location, but it worked out. Close to the metro, but just not a whole lot going on right around there. Love the BYOB aspect. We were not prepared, but had extra time before our reservations. The hostess suggested we walk down to Dominick's a few blocks away to buy wine. The food was amazing. We had the apple salad as an appetizer. Simple but oh-so-delicious. Our entrees were the Malaysian Curry Chicken and the Yah Yah Noodles. Both were fantastic. The service was courteous and sufficient, but not chatty. I would be happy to dine here again!"
