The sushi was top notch! Scott was our server and gave us excellent recommendations, including the chef soon specialty maki and the blazing mango. We weren’t going to get dessert, but he sold us on the black sesame ice cream. It’s not on the menu, but it was to die for. Overall, it was a great date night spot.

I brought my daughter to our favorite restaurant as she was home from college and I put that in the notes when I made the reservation. Everyone from the host, to the server, to the bartender, to the busser, all said welcome home to her. The food is always outstanding, i think the best Sushi house in the area, but to have everyone make her and myself feel so special was going above and beyond. Huge thumbs up!

Some of the best sushi I ever had! Chef Soon and his crew do an excellent job preparing the meals. The fish and all the other ingredients are very fresh. Recommend this to anyone looking for a good sushi spot in the suburbs.

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!
