Best sushi anywhere
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.
As usual, the experience was perfect....
From food to service... a perfect night..
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.
Very good sushi and atmosphere
Fun Saturday late dinner at Chef Soon. Sabrina is a wonderful server! Great dining experience.
The sushi tasted absolutely amazing! The flavors were creative and worked well. I want more!
Best sushi! Chef Soon and his crew are artists visually and in taste. His specials are always amazing. The sushi is so fresh, it melts in your mouth. A must for sushi lovers
Our waiter was ver knowledgeable about the menu.
Went on a much needed "date night" with my wife and found the service to be great (Vicki), the food to come out quickly (within 10 minutes), and the quality to be excellent (Firecracker Maki rolls were AMAZING!). Will definitely return!
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.
Went for our wedding anniversary as we do every year and it was phenomenal as usual.
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.
Outstanding. Server (Lauren?), too. Recommended several things we hadn't tried in the past and all were very good.
It was good, but fairly expensive
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.
We have been going to Chef Soon since he started in Ogden Ave and the style, presentation and taste of the sushi is the best in the western suburbs. Everyone else pales in comparison!
Went for my wife’s birthday and this place was outstanding. Great service and excellent food.
Unusual selections, great tasting, excellent service just all around. They even have fresh wasabi not the usual green paste stuff. Loved sitting at the sushi bar.
Best sushi I have ever eaten!!! Amazing!!!
Best sushi I’ve ever had.
I love this place!! We had the Gyoza, Firecracker, Ocean Drive with jalapeno instead of green peppers, King Kong and Dragon Fest were all delicious, The staff is so much fun and so friendly!! I have already recommended this place to several people already and I can't wait to go back!!
Excellent food, excellent service, we will definitely be back!
Great place for creative and unusual and extremely tasty sushi presentations! The chefs are great to watch; the wait staff is fun and attentive!
Fantastic sushi, with a very knowledgeable server to help us pick out a great bottle sake and the right sushi rolls. Will defiantly be back.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food is extremely fresh and creative.
One of my favorite sushi places
The summer roll is amazing. The calamari is very good. Tender with light, crispy batter. Chef Soon is our favorite sushi restaurant.
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.
We have been to experience Chef Soons delicious creations many times and have never been disappointed, and our latest visit delivered again! The sensation of all the flavors in his creations cannot be explained, it's amazing how he does it, he is a master!!!! Thank you Chef Soon!
Friends in from out of town
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
Food was out of this world. Great craft drinks.
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.
A very nice community restaurant. Like a Japanese sushi “Cheers”! ;). We love it!!!
The best sushi around. Summer roll is a must have!
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.
