Diner Reviews
  • "i have eaten many times at this restaurant and i hope this was just a bad night. However, it was so bad, i can't imagine ever going back. There were four of us and two ordered entrees that were served in a reasonable amount of time. they waited a while before starting, since the other two were still waiting for their food. 25 minutes after they finished their entrees, the other entree (a boiled dinner, prepared at the table, and thus almost nothing for the kitchen to do) finally started arriving. it was not worth the wait. bland, poorly presented. what a disappointment on what was supposed to be a very special birthday night."

  • "This is a rare gem. It's a James Beard restaurant in a charming little town. This white linen, elegant and incredibly delicious Chinese/sushi restaurant is the best Chinese food I've eaten in a long time. It's truly a treat."

  • "Go to the Akari Room Upstairs at Margaret Kuo's in Wayne. On a miserable weather night this past Saturday we were warmly greeted and promptly seated for our 8:00 pm reservation. The Sushi 2-2-2 deal is an absolute steal at $15 and we ordered that and the Soft Shell crab roll as appetizers. On good advice from a previous review, we ordered the black sesame Ahi-Tuna dinner -- which was too pretty to eat! But we devoured it - and it was delish! They also have a very thoughtful wine list with a few hidden gems at EXTRA FAIR prices - we found one and enjoyed that as well. All in all a wonderful experience."

  • "We had sushi dinner and filet teriyaki... sushi was good, but we were underwhelmed with the presentation... having been to a western suburbs favorite Veekoo where the presentation is awesome, Margaret Kuos was a little plain... anyway it was Valetines date with my sweety celebrating our first date 6 years go so we had to go..."

  • "I realize the Akari room is upstairs and the kitchen is downstairs, but they should make a better effort to serve the food hot."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed the Akari Room! Service was excellent and attentive. Wine list was amazing. Excellent selection of Japanese sake. Very nice ginger dressing on salad and lobster tempura roll was outstanding. We both had udon noodle bowls and thoroughly enjoyed them. Definitely on our repeat list!"

  • "We know Margaret Kuo's for high-quality, innovative Chinese food, but we had not realized that upstairs is a high-quality Japanese restaurant! Beautifully decorated, one feels as though one is in Japan. Menu is extensive, in addition to a large sushi menu and sushibar. Seating is at tables or in booths. Service was excellent and attentive. Wine list was broad. We'll return!"

  • "The service was a little slow but it's great Chinese food. The second floor of the restaurant is japenese so you can order sushi if you would like as well. We had both Chinese and sushi and we were impressed with both! I really like sang me and I like Margaret kuos too. Cin cin and Yang Ming are also very good."
