Best sushi anywhere - seriously you cannot find anything as good. We have never been disappointed with anything we’ve ordered. It’s FANTASTIC!! Service is just ok, but don’t let that stop you from dining here.

I was underwhelmed. The interior is not as photos led me to believe. The sushi bar is attractive, the rest: booths and the outdoor were basic. I guess the photos I saw highlighted the sushi bar/wall most.

The sushi was average. We’ve been trying to replace our old favorite, Standard Market Naperville. We ordered four rolls, one of which had melted mozzarella in attempt to sway our teen to try sushi. I should’ve known, but trusted the combination could be a win coming from sushi pros. It was not. A definite no. The other rolls were better, but we were not impressed. We also ordered a steak-asparagus appetizer which was over cooked, the meat was dry, tough. The server also forgot it which did not help.

Best Sushi in the Western 'burbs...

Big fan of chef Soon and have been to the restaurant countless times over the years. From his days with Blue Coral (now Legends) to today with the restaurant tucked in near the Cinemark @ Seven Bridges the menu is always evolving and it challenges the palette with unique approaches to Nigiri and Maki. Specialties are outstanding, service is attentive but not too over the top. Good selection of Sake and some very unique mixology happening here...

If you've never been, go. If you've been and it's been a little since your last visit, go again.

Go Soon!

Happy to find a sort of reprise of the former Blue Ginger sushi restaurant in Seven Bridges. We always enjoyed that place. This looks like a winner.

Excellent sushi, the white tuna appetizer (Ecstacy I think? ) was sooooo good, I would have ordered another one if we didn't already have 2 other apps on the way. The Jalapeno bombs were SO GOOD as well. The pork belly app was good, but I think after the Ecstacy, it was just ok. The sushi rolls were delicious and fresh, we had Dragon Fest, Crunch Salmon, Octo, and zoomed other one that was deep fried. All were fresh and tasty. We c will definitely come back!

We like to celebrate special occasions at Chef Soon. There are always daily specials, which are very unique. We roll our own sushi, at home, so, we know how much work goes into the meals at Chef Soon. Chef Soon always seems to be there when we go. It was a week night and there were 4 chefs working! We had a 6:45pm reservation and the Chilean Uni was almost sold out! My husband ordered two, before we even got our drinks. Highly recommend Chef Soon, but be prepared to spend some money, because Blue Fin Tuna is expensive!

This restaurant is small but bright and inviting. The seating is comfortable. The service was attentive and the server was well prepared to offer food and drink suggestions. We had quite a few of their signature sushi rolls and they were all excellent! There were 4 men making the rolls at the sushi bar so the food came promptly and the presentation was beautiful as well. This sushi was the BEST I have had in the suburbs, and we have been to many places. Their prices are on point for the food, quality and service. It is a MUST try if you want to experience delicious sushi in the burbs!!
