Every year for my birthday
Every year for my birthday I celebrate by having dinner at Shine. This has been a tradition of mine for several years now. I think about 4 or 5.

Pot stickers and Yaki Niku a must!
Upscale combination of Chinese and Japanese restaurant with great menu. Try the pot stickers pan fried and the Yaki Niku entree!

My neighborhood sushi go-to spot!
I'm a long time Chicagoian and Lincoln Park resident and 7 yrs ago, Shine (at the old, Armitage location) was the restaurant I came to when I first tried sushi. It was the best experience and is still one of my favorite maki roll and sushi spots in Chicago! I always have my favorite go-to rolls, but it's nice to step away from the sushi and get a hot entree too. I really miss the old location. The Webster spot is closer to home, a plus, but it is smaller and darker than the Armitage spot. I really miss the 2 different decorated rooms and the airy, brightness of the old loco. Assuming real estate costs changed and the owners got a deal when moving into the old O' Fame restaurant. The outdoor seating is another plus, but on the pricy side.

Shine is one of our go to
Shine is one of our go to sushi restaurants. The food is great and they always deliver a quality experience. Another perk is that they have brown rice for their rolls

mother's day brunch
Totally avoided the mother's day brunch scene, took my family to lunch here and was pleased at how quiet it was. Timely food, good service. I frequent this spot often.

Was impressed with the sushi selection! Ordered one of the specials and although I can't remember the roll, I was amazed! Great service, great food and great ambiance.

Definitely a find
I was looking for a restaurant near St Vincent de Paul to have dinner before attending a concert there, and Shine looked promising, and it certainly lived up to my expectations. I was totally pleased with my maki, and my friend enjoyed her kung pao, and we both enjoyed the order of potstickers we shared to start. The atmosphere is quite attractive and the service was thoughtful, friendly and attentive. I will definitely be going back.
