This is our favorite sushi restaurant. Soon makes the best rolls and has the freshest sushi. We like the Fireball, Millennium and Blue Fin Toro roll the best. The Seven Spiced Ahi appetizer is to die for as well.

This place has singlehandedly ruined Sushi at any other restaurant and that includes Sushi Restaurants in Chicago, New York and LA. Nothing else stacks up.

Second time here. Sushi and “kitchens food are excellent. As my dining partner said, “the fish to rice ratio is so much better than most places”. But most importantly the fish is really fresh, well prepared, and beautifully presented. The signature nigiri is very special. Just a touch of something like the Yellowtail with banana peppers sautéed in butter. Understand, the banana peppers are like a seasoning- not overpowering. Maybe 1/8 tsp on top of the Yellowtail. Very inventive. The standard sushi is great- well prepared and fresh. They had a special tonight that was layers of tuna and beef carpaccio layered with tomato and avocado all sliced paper thing with a light dressing.

In summary, very fresh and well executed. Best to be had western suburbs and beats all but the best Chicago has to offer.

Chef Soon never disappoints. Fatty tuna sashimi was, as always, an amazing melt in your mouth experience. Last night tried the mussels appetizer for the first time - Wow! The mussels were perfect and the broth was absolutely amazing. All the rolls we shared were delicious. This is truly the best sushi restaurant in the Midwest.

REALLY good Japanese food is hard to find...SO LOVE this place ~ very fresh fish, inventive & interesting flavor mixes, creative combinations I've never seen elsewhere & would have never thought to put together. Artful presentations, expertly cut ~ roll pieces you can actually fit in your mouth & enjoy the flavors of, rather than chipmunk-style stuffing, chewing & swallowing ~ deliciously well-crafted cocktails, clean convivial atmosphere, & patient knowledgeable service...what's not to love? Well, writing this review, actually ~ would love to keep Chef Soon a closely guarded secret! Alas, that ship has sailed, so my best advice is: make reservations, visit often, & eat your way through the menu without fear...cheers!

Tried this place the other night and it will become a regular stop for us. The space is bright, modern and clean. The service was very attentive, yet not overbearing. The sushi was extremely well prepared, fresh and served quickly. The chef’s selections were all so tasty, with their own unique flavors, that using soy and wasabi are totally not needed or even suggested.

I thought American Sushi was ruined for me after traveling in Japan several times recently. I was very surprised to hear that the sushi chefs were Korean at this restaurant as the chefs choice sushi combo was just as delicate and delicious as the sushi I had in Japan and I mistakenly thought only a Japanese sushi chef could achieved such wonderful sushi. My husband had several rolls and enjoyed them and we also shared some perfectly cooked tempura shrimp and vegetables. The wine list was also a surprise and I enjoyed a lovely Chenin Blanc from South Africa and a Sauvignon Blanc from France. My husbands night would had been perfect if there was beer on tap. A great find and we will definitively be back.

We have been at many Sushi places in the US. This one makes my top 10 list, maybe not at a level of a Matsuhisha or a Nobu (yet) but outstanding, more on the contemporary, fresh side.
This is not your average Susi place don't look for cheap roles drenched with spicy sauces.
