Food was good, not great. 2 of our 3 rolls were good but not a fan of the third. With that being said it was the best sushi I have found out here.

Superb and creative sushi, sashimi and other pan Asian dishes. Combined with excellent craft cocktails and a decent wine list this place is a must. Outside of Tokyo, this is the best sushi I have eaten

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.

Chef Soon never disappoints!
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!

Outstanding taste..My daughters teally loved Seven Bridges sushi...wish portions were bigger as its pricey. Like my older said : its really good but Blue Fish in Northbrook still better and lower price. I dont believe her, so I will have to go there too.
Thank you for great service.

Really good versions of the standard sushi rolls, and many innovative creations. Top ranked were the Green Turtle, Dragon Fest, and Sunset rolls. The Summer Roll is in a category by itself - incredibly light and refreshing and needs no wasabi or soy sauce. Recommend finishing with this one.

Really high-end sushi/sashimi selections without having to go to the city!

Kitchen dishes are usually hit or miss. For example, the appetizer, Salmon Roulette, was delicious. Whereas, Beef Negimaki, a typical Japanese appetizer, tasted alright, was not on point due to uneven thickness of the beef slices and the uneven bundle of ingredients across the dish.

Keep in mind this is a "Contemporary Sushi" restaurant and not a traditional Japanese spot. With that in mind, sushi and sashimi's are very fresh, premium cuts and selections. One can easily observe that Chef Soon takes great pride in his sashimi, nigiri, and maki rolls with their attention to detail on cuts, evenness, sauces and presentation.

In terms of service, my first visit was lack of service. Second time around we sat right in front of Chef Soon and our waitress was very much on top of her game. I️ wonder if seating had to do with service.

Overall, I️ recommend this restaurant. I️ want to give Chef Soon a 5 Star, in time, may they get there.

Unfortunately Chef Soon wasn’t there and it was quite obvious due to the quality of the sushi rolls, the cuts of fish and the presentation. I will never go there on a Thursday again.

Unfortunately just wasn’t that impressed! The sushi was a little fishy and the seaweed wrapper was so chewy I couldn’t eat a piece without the wrapper gagging me. Not that enjoyable. The atmosphere was nice, but paint was peeling off the walls. Just ok.

We brought my mom here for the first time to celebrate her 88th birthday. We went at 6pm on a Wednesday and soon after the whole restaurant was full, every table, booth and sushi bar. That says a lot. We have been fans of the chef since his early days at Blu Corral then his own small spot inside a Korean bbq place in Lisle to this restaurant. The restaurant is not very big, decorated in white furnishings. Their wait staff is always good here and tonight our server Emily was so attentive and patient. She provided fantastic service! The food here is always fresh, innovative and flavorful. The pricing is on the higher side, though, compared to another one of my fav sushi places that does compare to this one. For example, I paid $15 for fatty tuna maki, which were 6 very small rolls with a small amount of tuna. I don't even think the tuna by itself weighed an ounce. Very disappointing with that price point and the amount of fatty tuna as I love it. Everything we ordered was delicious...two salads with ginger dressing, gyoza, edamame, two baked oysters, scallop appetizer, two shrimp tempuras, Philadephia maki, tuna maki, fatty tuna maki, yellowtail & scallion maki, green turtle maki, spicy tuna maki. Emily surprised my mom with a delicious piece of birthday cake, light and fluffy with fresh strawberries. So nice! My parents' first experience here went well; they loved the food and will be back. I think we converted them.

The seafood is SO fresh and the rolls are completely unique! This is a diamond in the rough as it's located in Seven Bridges along a movie theater and behind BWW. Not an ideal spot for such amazing sushi, but it's worth it! SO GOOD!
