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.

My two fellow diners both had sushi, and both proclaimed their sushi to be the best ever! And both are big sushi fans! I had a simply delicious pork dish. I do not favor sushi.

Everywhere we have lived we have found our local sushi place. We live in Naperville. Made the trip tonight and will make the trip once per week at least. Worth the trip. Service was epic. Food was just as epic.

I have zero hesitation in saying that sushi by Chef Soon the best sushi in the DuPage county. The service and atmosphere is phenomenal and the food is even better. The prices are more than fair for the quality of food provided. I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience at a reasonable price

The food was very good and the ambiance was very nice but the portions were on the smaller side for the price and although our waitress was very attentive, we felt rushed. As soon as we finished one thing, the next was immediately there and that was disappointing considering they were only half full.

My wife and I have been to plenty of Sushi places but never have we enjoyed such a well blended flavor pallet. The chefs are very knowledgeable and understand the blending of texture and flavor to create a nirvana like experience that wakes the senses. Hats off to the staff at Chef Soon's bistro what a wonderful place.

I have eaten sushi all over the country and Chef Soon is by far the best I have ever eaten. Los Angles, Southern Florida and especially Bamboo Sushi in Portland is amazing but the variety of the Signature Maki by Chef Soon is just awesome. Every single signature Maki we have tried has been outstanding, but the Blazing Mango, Fiesta, Summer and Chef Soon's Signature Maki is beyond description. I cannot recomened Chef Soon strongly enough and we eat there 5 or 6 times a year, choosing to savor every visit. Given the choice of any restaurant in Chicago to celebrate his birthday, our 27 yr old son chose Chef Soon in Woodbridge. You can't get a better endorsement than that!

The food is always first class and the chef has a lot of creativity in his presentations. The roll selection is extensive the sauces are complimented perfectly. I have eaten sushi in Japan, China, California, Hawaii and parts unknown, Woodridge can also be on my top tier list! This is by far our favorite sushi in the Midwest.

Our family’s favorite makis are Ocean Drive & Tropical Island. We tried some new ones this time, too.
The sushi and maki are of excellent quality. Pricey but worth the tasty experience!

We love chef soon. It's one of our regular stops. Fireball, Millennium, Seven Spiced Ahi, Blue Toro Roll...Are all amazing. They have the highest quality fish. I've been to sushi restaurants in Chicago, New York and LA that are 2x expensive and don't hold a candle to Soon.
