A word from Sushi by Chef Soon
A contemporary sushi spot operated by Chef Soon with specialization in Japanese cuisine with over 17 years of experience in various upscale restaurants. Remember the unique and delicious sushi platters that you once enjoyed at Blu Coral Contemporary Sushi which was located at the Seven Bridges Mall?
Well, the Head Chef of that place has now opened up his own venture close by. Head Chef Soon Park has enjoyed serving all his loyal customers that came to enjoy his unique but yet exquisite sushi that he prepared. Please come and visit him at the sushi bar located inside SeoCho Korean BBQ Restaurant in Maple Plaza. As an innovator of a new style Japanese food with unique blend of creative flair and passion for food, he will introduce you to a new level of sushi with great flavors and innovative presentation. On the extensive menu, Chef Soon features both contemporary and traditional sushi. Check out some of the chef soon's art work on facebook . Come inside and enjoy the freshest sushi..

I believe Chef Soon was one of the
chefs at another place we used to frequent called Blu Coral. He is excellent and his staff do a nice job of putting the sushi together. It's some of the best I've had anywhere and will definitley come back! My only complaint - We were sitting at the sushi bar, and there was quite a cold breeze coming through, so it made for a bit of a chilly experience. We were able to move down a couple of seats, but could still feel the cold air. If they put a curtain or screen in front of that corridor where the cold air was coming from, that would probably help. Otherwise, a great experience!"

Our waiter, Eddie was able to
suggest us menu items an I was very happy with his suggestion. We also ordered a bottle of wine and he brought the ice bucket and wine wrapped in a linen napkin, it was very nice. Chef Soon's sushi was delicious and you can tell it was fresh, fresh, fresh! Good pricing too, we will be back!"

You'd miss it if you didn't know
if was there, but This place has the absolute best sushi in the area. Very pleasant service paired with a no-wrong-choice menu guarantees a great night out. The chef is always coming up with new menu choices which makes it really fun to go back in and see what's new. They have a repeat customer for life with us."

Kind of a cheesy location, but
Soon gets some of the freshest fish I've had in the States. From the traditional sashimi to the imaginative rolls, he hits the spot. The sashimi prices may seem high for the area, but once you see and taste the high quality and freshness, its completely understandable. Small staff who is friendly and approachable, particular once the know your name. Neighborhood and sushi gem-don't let Soon's Korean heritage turn you away-he's got it down!"

Sushi by Chef Soon is THE
BEST!!!!! I heard of the restaurant on Chicago's Best and thought it looked interesting. But it's so much more! I've had sushi many places and this is by far the very best I've ever had! I've taken a few people here and have recommended it to many more and everyone is in agrees it is outstanding. Chef Soon is a sushi genius! And his staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Another thing I like is if you're not very familiar with sushi they can walk you right through. And every time I'm there you see people chatting from table to table asking "what is that? it looks great!". I've never been disappointed. I highly recommend Sushi by Chef Soon! And I can't wait to go back!"

I crave Sushi by Chef Soon. Sooo
delicious! The flavors he uses are unique and delicious. I brought a friend from out of state here and she was really impressed with the freshness of the fish as well as the rolls."

When you walk into a Japanese
resturant and see that 1/2 or more of the people are Japanese, then you know the food is authentic. The services was outstanding and so was the food and presenation. The place is tired and furniture looks like it came from the old country buffett. Go for the food, but don't expect to see white table clothes and space to spread out. Lots of families with chrildren."

chef Soon was an amazing creator
of sushi. We enjoyed everything."

The sushi was just OK & very
expensive for what you get in that area. On the summer roll you receive 8, but the sushi was sliced so thin on top you could barely taste it. For the price I expect a larger slice of fish. Also the space is really strange within the front side portion of a Korean restaurant. It's crammed in a corner at the entrance. Kind of strange!"

Four of us dined, 2 who liked
sushi and two who didn't. When we left, we were all in love with this place. The quality, presentation and taste were the best we've had. Can't wait to go back. We shared 6 rolls...all if such we enjoyed. Firecracker was the shared favorite. Even those who didn't like sushi loved the food."

The food was excellent. Some of
the best sushi I have ever had. I would definitely eat there again."

Compared to fine sushi restaurants
in the city, this place was okay but not outstanding. Presentation was also only adequate as was the food."
Dined on 6/23/2013
I tried several dishes. Each was
unique and equally satisfying... However, I fell in love with the Red Dragon. It contained different textures and flavors. It stood out to my taste buds."

Excellent food prepared with
attention to detail and creativity."

Then you must go to Sushi by Chef
Soon in Lisle. The Sushi is deliciously flavorful in every bite! We had 6 different rolls and they were all perfect. You can get sweet, spicy, fresh, fried...you name it. No soy sauce needed! No soy sauce! That says a lot. It's worth the trip...if you are not in Lisle. I'm in Chicago :) Definitely not your vibrant, romantic, scenic, late-night ambiance, BUT it's a must for the sushi!"

The investment here is in the
food. What you get for what you pay is quite good. If you're looking for a great physical environment go somewhere else. If you're looking for good food & the ability top watch & talk with the sushi chef as it is prepared - ENJOY it here."

Great sushi. Only our second visit
and we were remembered-- very nice. Restaurant called to let me know of road closure (due to flooding) and then called again to let me know road was reopened. Saved us so much time. Highly recommend."

To keep it simple, the food and
service were comparable to any super expensive Chicago sushi place. The space is small and shared with a BBQ place, but it is screened off and feels completely seperate and decorated nicely. Chef Soon does a great job having a nice fresh variety, making you want to go back. If you want flashy and trendy, go downtown. If you want good sushi close to home, try it."

Food was decent, but it took over
2 hours for our food to be served for a party of four."
