Very accommodating and
understanding in spite of our late arrival. Our server had great suggestions and recommendations from both the drink and the food menus, yet was never obtrusive. The food was delicious. We would definitely go back again."

Very busy this night. Ate in the
bar & waitress was a bit overwhelmed. Had to flag her down a few times to get wine & place our food order. The food always makes up for it & the fact that we were in no hurry. Excellent food. Two dinners so far in a week & a lunch!"

Have now been there 2 nights in a
row for dinner. I usually go for lunch sometimes during the week too. I am here at least 2 times a week, if not 3. I LOVE this place. The sushi & everything on the menu is so fresh. It's a bit noisy, but I don't care. Sergio, one of the managers, is very hospitable. Love Farah, too."

Nabuki is everything you want in a
sushi restaurant. 1) extremely fresh ingredients 2) incredibly talented chefs (esp JP!) 3) very friendly, knowledgeable, and welcoming wait-staff (esp Brian!). Their menu contains all of the classic sushi rolls and combinations that you know and love but where they really shine is with their inventive/modern take on sushi. I traveled and tasted sushi across the US/Globe and I can say that, without a doubt, this is the best sushi experience I have ever had. I implore you, instead of heading to downtown Chicago for something overpriced and mediocre, head to Hinsdale and be blown away by Nabuki; you owe it to yourself and your palate!"

The Sushi was fresh and delicious.
Service was excellent. Beautiful decor with vibrant atmosphere."

The sushi was ok and the tuna
appetizer special was amazing, however our calamari appetizer was cooked too hard, my Chilean sea bass was over cooked, and it took a while for them to bring me another dish of scallops that were under seasoned. I probably should not have ordered anything additional. The atmosphere was good albeit a little dark in the corner booths."

I am seriously addicted to Nabuki.
I am in there for lunch at least once a week and dinner once a week. Or else I have 2 lunches there. I even do takeout. Everything I have ever had tastes fresh and amazing. I never go any where else for sushi. It is so unique. I bring all my friends there & they are addicted too. Fabulous wines. Definitely $$$. Had dinner for 2 Friday night & it was $250. Maybe theree could be a look at the wine list prices & options."

Great food, great service, fun
neighborhood place for the family and special occasions."

This was our third time to Nabuki
and the experience is always spectacular because of Farrah who has been our waiter each time. Of course, we specifically ask for her when we make our reservation. The food has never been disappointing and it's a great environment. Farrah is extremely pleasant, funny, talkative and knows the food and drink menus. She always makes terrific suggestions for both. Highly recommend Nabuki and specifically Farrah."

Great suburban sushi option.
Lives up to its Michelin bib gourmand status. Had a decent amount of vegetarian options for me and plenty of seafood for my friend."
Dined on 6/20/2014
Nabuki is one of the best
restaurants developing very imaginative and delicious maki rolls. They're also good at making up new cocktails, so its a fun place to go experience new stuff. It can be noisy and crowded as the restaurant isn't very big. "

Great sushi and drinks! Will
definitely be back. Our Server was wonderful and very informative. I received a nice education regarding Sake, which was very helpful. "

This is my all time favorite place
to eat! Food is top quality, service is excellent & the ambiance is perfect! "

Incredibly loud. Impossible to
have a normal conversation. The appetizers were very good."
Dined on 5/3/2014
The sushi was shockingly mediocre.
I've been eating sushi for over 10 years and this was no better than any random sushi bar in many neighborhoods. This place doesn't deserve the Michelin rating. The decor was nice but it was very loud. Can not recommend it and will not be back. Sorry."
Dined on 5/3/2014
Everytime we go here they have
great sushi roll specials of the night."

I've not seen Nabuki this quiet in
a while. It was a rainy Tuesday lunch, but the staff were on their game. The presentation is always beautiful and fresh fish from Fortune Fish. "
Dined on 4/29/2014
Brian is the guy you have to ask
for. He picked our food and gave us dessert. The best waiter we had."
Dined on 4/16/2014
We love Nabuki!! The sushi here is
divine. We always end up ordering too much because everything is so yummy (and then my son has a midnight snack for later!)"
Dined on 3/22/2014
I went to Nabuki for my first time
the other night (being form the city, normally I go to my favorite spot there, but was willing to give the burbs a try) after my roommate recommend it. We were greeted by Brian, our waiter, a self proclaimed "Encyclopedia of Sushi" and was he ever- I would definitely recommend him to everyone!! All we had to do was tell him the sort of rolls we liked and he made DELICIOUS recommendations that were off the menu. He did not steer us wrong at all. - at one point we had 3 tuna rolls so he said that he would see if he could substitute tuna for salmon - OMG. I don't even remember was it was but it was SOOOO good. He will remember, its one if his favorites.. I will definitely be going back."
Dined on 3/19/2014
I haven't ever ordered a meal
there, but the sashimi and rolls as well as Hamachi Taradito appetizer have always been fantastic. Very fresh and delicious. I have 2 sushi places in my town but I choose to drive into Hinsdale for Nabuki."

The Stanley Cup and Mushimo rolls
(both temporary items) were absolutely remarkable! Great service and finely kept restaurant."
Dined on 2/25/2014
Waitress was fun and outgoing. She
gave very good food and drink recommendations. Definitely will be a repeat costumer."
Dined on 2/14/2014
Awesome place with great food,
wonderful service. We usually go in med to lg groups and they are accommodate well. Give it a try. You'll become hooked like we are."
Dined on 2/1/2014
We gave the chef free rein, and
they didn't disappoint. A special dinner well worth the price tag, which wasn't small. Farrah rocks, both as a bar tender, server and general rabble rouser! Younger crowd, some with kids, even on early Saturday night."
Dined on 1/25/2014
My husband and I have been wanting
to try Nabuki for some time. With both kids out with friends, we decided to try Nabuki. What took us so long! Our server Brian asked us what kind of sushi do we like. We told him and then he said "I'll take care of you". And, he sure did! Every plate he brought us was delicious. This is by far the best and freshest sushi we've ever had. We cannot wait to go back again and see what Brian will bring us next!"
Dined on 1/24/2014
Food is good, staff are very
polite but service was very slow. My entree arrived 30 minutes before everyone one else's. The noise level is unbelievable, impossible to hold a conversation. Too many families in there so would not reccomend for a romantic dinner. If your kids love sushi it's perfect, go. For an evening with adult friends don't bother. The tables are so close together you can hear what everyone is saying. This place is loud and food is not great enough for us to tolerate it. Have also had lunch here, good food but our server interrupted us far too much. It was very annoying."
Dined on 1/17/2014
Been to Nabuki multiple times.
Made a reservation through opentable had a great experience with my family. The food is amazing had the skirt steak tempature was just the way I wanted it. Will be back!"

This is the best sushi I've had in

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant.
Very Fresh fish and creative items on menu. Will be going back soon."

Nabuki is one of our favorite
restaurants in downtown Hinsdale. The ambiance is great and the food is spectacular everytime. We eat there probably once every two weeks and our waiter/waitresses always recommend amazing new rolls. I definitely recommend this place everyone and wouldn't change a thing about it."
Dined on 12/14/2013
Sushi was yummy. Wish there was a
better selection of choices. Very limited if you're a salmon lover. We were there on Friday evening; figured it would be busy, however it was so loud my boyfriend and I didn't have much conversation. Neither of us wanted to shout over the other people shouting over one another."

Good sushi with a Latin flare. A
little pricey but for fresh sushi it works. U have some options for wine or drinks"
Dined on 12/6/2013
Great food, great service.
Beautiful presentation of very tasty sushi. Energetic, pleasant staff. Everyone friendly, smiling and helpful."
Dined on 11/30/2013
It's a nice space and if you are
with a small group the noise level allows you to talk but not h have to yell. Also the viewof the village street is quaint in the large window. It's a very clean restaurant, important aspect when eating sushi. Everything tasted good but the same. We tried 6-8 rolls and honestly coulded tell one fish from another. They need to work on that. The service was good."
Dined on 10/30/2013
Been here several times and the
sushi is outstanding. Love the ambiance. Great spot for family or romantic night!"
Dined on 10/8/2013
I decided to have dinner here
based on prior open table reviews. I sat at the bar and had almost os a year if this is difficult for one person. The Nigiri sushi was very fresh and the portions were fairly generous. The chef even made a special plate 4 me which was not on the menu. I wish I took a picture. It was excellent. Rolls are the specialty of the house. Spicy rolls seem quite popular. Not quite as creative as Arami for omakase but probably better if I was with a larger group. Will return with a larger group so I can sample some of the sashimi. Fairly pricey but you get what you pay for with Sushi. Would highly recommend for west suburban sushi. Just as good as downtown and in some cases better."
Dined on 10/6/2013
We went earlyish on a Sun.
evening. We were impressed by the elegance of the setting and the warm welcome we got from the host and our waitress, Farrah. She knew everything about the dishes on the menu. She suggested a special roll of the evening and it was spot on, not too spicy but extremely tasty. We had miso soup which was not too salty as some versions are. Had some elegantly presented shumai that melted in the mouth. We also had Hamachi Loves Me and That's How We Roll. Both were scrumptious. My husband drank delicious warm sake. I had a lovely white wine. We enjoyed the catchy names of the offerings. As more diners arrived, it became a bit noisier, but not overpowering. We'll definitely return."

Grew up in Hinsdale and very
pleased they have a 5-star sushi restaurant that can hold court with the best sushi of the city! Ginger salad is beautifully presented, and sashimi is so fresh and portions are generous! Ps ask for the crab&tuna."
Dined on 10/3/2013
We were very happy to find decent
sushi since moving to the suburbs. The rolls are great & the tuna tartare app was delicious."
