Japanese | South Loop, Chicago

Umai is my go-to place for Japanese in Chicago. I've never had a bad meal there and have been there 20+ times. It is where I take out-of-town guests that want authentic Japanese at reasonable prices. Bonus that it is right down the street from Jazz Showcase so you can get your live music on after a fabulous meal!! More

Great hidden gem in south loop. Food was absolutely delicious! I tried the chargrilled octopus and smoke salmon flatbread which was some of the best dishes I have ever had and so reasonably priced. Service was good and drinks started out top notch but the second round tasted watered down. All in all - a great dining experience! More

Good food! Wish the tables were higher for brunch but love that bottomless mimosas. Bacon pancakes were perfect. Husband ordered the French toast without the whip and said they were perfect. Wish the brunch menu had a la cart pricing for things like eggs, bacon etc but overall experience was pretty good. More

Discover South Loop

South Loop offers a variety of dining options that draw people in from all over. One will find a vast array of eateries near the neighborhood's museums and historical areas like Japanese and Thai cuisine as well as some of Chicago’s top casual restaurants. If you're in the mood for something else in the neighborhood, you can get pierogi from a Polish restaurant or tapas from a Mexican restaurant. Visitors should be sure to sample local home-grown flavors like the Windy City’s very own deep dish-style pizza and authentic Chicago-styled hot dogs. For those who simply want a classic burger and a craft brew, try one of the pubs around the Chicago Bears’ Soldier Field.
