Diner Reviews
  • "Best sushi place around. Great service. Byob. Good prices. I highly recommend"

  • "You would expect this place to be on the North side or some trendy neighborhood. Love that it is BYOB. I was never a fan of Crab Ragoon, but after reading reviews on this place and everyone raved about it, I had to try it. OMG amazing! Only place I would ever order it. Great Pad Thai and rolls. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!"

  • "The food was excellent, and the service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Everything was fresh, beautifully presented and delicious! Love the fact that this is BYOB. There are very few restaurants in this neighborhood that match Hands On in terms of food quality and presentation."

  • "A colleague had sushi and said it was quite good. Various Thai dishes were all good, including soups. It was difficult to find a cab - even to call one took over 15 minutes - and the restaurant was of little help. They should have a cab company they know to be reliable who knows where they are."

  • "There is one very friendly and dedicated server in the whole restaurant, she is working very hard but it is just too much for one person."

  • "We wanted to support our local neighborhood restaurant in Portage Park, but was disappointed on the service especially for Valentine's Day. For the entire restaurant there was only one server. It felt like we were bothering them when it came to service! Food is good, but will not be returning because the service was awful."

  • "Didn't realize I had a Sushi/Thai place so close to my house. Great atmosphere, looks like it belongs on the north side. We only had sushi and the Crab Ragoon. Would like to go back to try the Thai."

  • "We eat Japanese food quite often, and have fairly high expectations given that we live close to an excellent sushi restaurant. We had to travel a bit out of the way to come here, and we're very glad we did. Had some really stellar items, and of course, each restaurant has its own take on this cuisine. We tried many different things from the Japanese side of the menu. Sashimi, appetizers, miso soup and several rolls. These ranged from very good to outstanding. The gyoza and miso were really excellent -- the gyoza was the best I've had. Brought a friend who is very discerning and he was quite impressed as well. Would definitely return -- better than downtown."

  • "Nice, small place. Great crab Rangoon. They are tiny bite sized pieces. Order them with a side of chili sauce. delicious. Good spicy miso and good curries. I had the green curry with brown rice. Nice selection of sushi as well."
