This was our first time to Anna's, and what a wonderful surprise. The food is unbelievable! There is an avocado/tuna appetizer that is delicious. We also ordered the spring rolls and they were very flavorful, as was the dipping sauce that accompanied it. We ordered several types of sushi, and not only were they delicious, but the presentation was outstanding as well. One of our guests did not eat sushi, so she ordered a shrimp and veggie stir fry, we all sampled it, and it was wonderful, too! Our server was very attentive and helpful. All in all it was a great evening! We can't wait to go back.

Delicious and Pleasant
The food was deliciously complex and flavorful choices. Less than high-end decor, but some renovations/changes are in process. Comfortable and pleasant, with attentive service.

Everything that our party
Everything that our party of five ordered was really great! I did not give it five stars only because I felt that the wait staff could have been more friendly. There were two times where I felt she was a little annoyed. We were a well-behaved crowd so I do not know what that was about.

Love the soups!
Our waitress was so sweet. When I told her I liked the Tom Yum and Tom Kah soup, she made a special blend of the two and it was fantastic! And SO accommodating. We had the house salad as well, which was big enough for two people to share, the egg rolls were great and the pink roll was also great! The rising sun was my favorite. The interior could use an update, but other than that we had a great experience.

Great Asian cuisine! Anna's
Great Asian cuisine! Anna's mom is in the kitchen cooking everything from scratch and to order. I've been going for over a year and there's nothing on the menu I haven't liked. My favorites: stuffed avacado, the duck, Malaysian curry rice, roti canai, drunken noodles and the green curry.

We love Anna's Asian. The
We love Anna's Asian. The owners Anna and David couldn't be more accommodating. It's BYOB which is always appreciated. The sushi is top quality and very fresh. We love the avocado tuna appetizer. Great place.

I almost think we shouldn't rave about Anna's so it doesn't get crowded out of control, but it's too good not to share. Anna and David have created a masterful menu and backed it up with a head-spinning variety of flavors and choices so that you could go back every week and not get bored. They are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed talking about the food, Thailand and their backgrounds as well as enjoying the meal immensely. We treated it as kind of an Asian tapas experience and that was great - can't wait to go back and try some of the entrees as well. The BYOB thing is nice, and the fact that they don't hit you with a "corkage" charge is considerate. We have found a new place for our regular dining list, can't wait to go back.

The best ribs ever at any Asian restaurant. The stuffed Avocado was awesome and I the Pink Passion sushi rolls were amazing!

Great Sushi and more!
Sushi was very fresh and good. In addition we had eggrolls, Mongolian Chicken and Chicken Teriyaki (sp) and these 3 warm dishes were very, very good. Prices were more than reasonable. Also, with Anna's being BYOB it was a very econimical meal. We will be back!

Great Menu Options! Delicious Food!
I enjoyed the stuff chicken wings and the death by chocolate dessert very much. My guest all raved about their food selections, too. I will definitely return.

Awesome Asian Fare
My wife and i were here on a friday night and we truly loved this restuarant. My wife is a lover of sushi which I don't like and I am a lover of thai food which she hates. Annas was the best of both worlds for us, The stuffed avacado is the best and a must try!!! I had the pad thai which I loved and my wife had the godzilla sushi roll which she was excited about....and also the byob is an awesome touch with no corking fee...

Great food... Wide selection and ver accomodating to our schedule needs... Definitely will return...
On Lake St so would never have ended up here without OpenTable

Anna's Asian Bistro is a terrific BYOB, pan-Asian restaurant. Be sure to meet the delightful Anna while you're there!

Great Asian Food
A friend of mine recommended Anna's and I was not let down. I ordered the stuffed avocado, spicy miso soup, and 2 specialty sushi rolls. All of the food was outstanding and very reasonable in price. The restaurant is BYOB so we brought wine with us. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good reasonably priced Asian food. Also they deliver to a fairly decent sized area around them.

We went to Anna's on a Sunday
We went to Anna's on a Sunday so it was a little quieter than I think it normally is. But the food was wonderful. All very fresh and reasonably priced - for Sushi. And - it was BYOB so we definitely did not overspend. You can get drinks there but they do allow BYOB which is great. We will certainly return.

The food is wonderful and very well priced! I love that it is BYOB, and the staff is very friendly!!!

good asian place in the west loop
overall we had a good meal here. sushi was delicious, the special fried avocado appetizer that has such rave reviews was slightly overrated but still tasty. pad see eiw was good. i would come back here or considering ordering for delivery

My new favorite
Super fresh fish. I recommend any of the traditional rolls, like the super white creamy, crunchy spicy, etc.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love their menu which has a variety of choice! We had different types of Asian dish (originated from different countries) which all tasted great. The waitress was friendly too!

Great local BYO sushi/Asian food
This place is BYO and very inexpensive. Sushi was great as was the chicken curry dish. Loved! Will definitively be back! Great service too!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Decent pan-asian place
good space/ambience, especially when packed. great service. appetizers like the papaya salad and the dumplings are great. thai iced tea was average. i liked the sushi, and i dont usually like sushi. bop was average. my fish was nicely cooked but the sauce was too sweet. overall a good place for out-of-town guests who like nice ambience and pan-asian

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!

After living abroad, we returned to Chicago and went in search of authentic Asian cuisine. We were delighted with Anna's. The food was delicious, especially the Pink Passion sushi and the avocado tempura. Since it is BYOB it allows you to manage your costs more. More people kept arriving throughout the night, showing how this place has a great reputation. We will definitely be back!

Great value for money!
We went to Anna's Asian Bistro for our anniversary and were not disappointed. We ordered the sushi and really liked many of their specialty rolls. As sushi can be expesive, it was great that this was a BYOB. We will definitely return:)

Some of the best standard sushi rolls in the city! Super fresh fish.

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

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!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a hit...
Food is always delicious. Cannot miss the stuffed avocado! Large menu makes it had to choose an item but have never been disappointed with anything I've ordered here. Also BULB, so you have to love that!

Still In Love
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!

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.
