Best crab Rangoon EVER! Order it. Trust me. Sushi and maki were great. Thai dishes (pad Thai, pad see ew)were good (not great). It is byob. A bit of a dive in terms of ambiance, but the food absolutely made up for that.
Service wasn’t great this time around. As well as the rolls. Maybe we got them on a bad night
Great food as always! Spicy Tuna Maki is our favorite
Wonderful small location with great food. Everything was flavorful and fresh. Enjoyed Pad See Ew with crispy noodles instead. Came out perfect and not soggy. Also tried Crab fried rice and it was deliciously abundant with crab. Came with my family and they are looking forward to coming back.
Great food and service always. The green tea was a bit too sweet is my only harsh critique.
Amazing service and restaurant! Wonderful sushi and entrees! BYOB is a plus! Love it here!! I highly recommend
Great food. Good prices and services. I recommend.
Awesome! Great food and love that with such good food it's Byob!
Ordered Thai tea, Tom Kha Kai soup, Seaweed Poppers, Edemame, Fried Crab Rangoons and the Gangster Platter (which is a 5 sushi roll Chef's choice). Everything was delicious! The presentation was very nice. The sushi platter was awesome! Looked fancy, tasted so good, and was presented like an art rendition with sauces and sides in artistic designs. I am a proud SushiSnob, so if I liked it, it was good. We had the whole place to ourselves, but it is small, so I suspect a busy night might be louder. I am glad to say this is our new favorite sushi place! Go check it out!
Hands On is great neighborhood spot for Sushi. It is a BYOB and also offers many Thai dishes on the menu. The fish is fresh and the service is excellent.
Amazing! Great service from the waitress to the host to the chef. Amazing food! Great decor! Newly redone! Sushi is amazing love everything
I had read that Hands On was BYOB.
We decided not, to bring anything, and had water, soda, and hot tea.
We started with Fried Arts, which is like an egg roll, with salmon and spinach.
Then, we had sushi: Hangover was great and Leaning Tower of Pisa was incredible.
We also had Orange Chicken and Chicken Basil Fried, which were both excellent.
Wonderful food! Amazing sushi and calamari! Wonderful staff and service ! Great place overall
First time I went there with my friend for little celebration of her b-day.I made reservations through Open Table apps.All reviews are positive ,so it made me decide to go there. I was nice surprise, everything we ordered tested so good and looked good,rolls very fresh and yammy .I like an idea of BYOB :-) .Two young servers were very nice and professional and their cook as well.Only few things bother me: color of the wall-bright orange doesn't go with atmosphere, I would like to go little settle, make more romantic ,the waitresses should wear propriet uniforms or aprons,not their regular clothes. Decoration. . need some Asian accent,and tables are "naked".will be nicer if some tablecloth appear. Overall I like there,and few days after my first visit I went there again with my husband for Sunday dinner and he likes there too.:-)I recommen Hand on .yammy. ..;-)
Wonderful small sushi and Thai restaurant! The service from when you enter to when you leave is amazing. The hostess waitress and chef are all so inviting and nice. The sushi is so amazing and the best sushi around! I would prefer this gem to a downtown sushi restaurant. It is byob too for no cost which is great! I high recommend it.
Excellent service! Excellent Thai noodles! Excellent sushi! I recommend the Stonehedge and Spider sushi rolls! Amazing place!
Amazing sushi, wonderful staff, friendly service, amazing decor and atmosphere, and it is byob. I love this place.
My favorite place for sushi! Great service!!!!!!!!
Amazing service and staff with high quality food and choices! BYOB makes it even better.
I love their sushi here! One of the best !!
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant! We celebrate all of our anniversaries and birthdays here as a tradition and are never disappointed! We are regulars and always look forward to going or ordering. The sushi is delicious and the Thai is amazing! Great service every time! Love this place and highly recommend it!!
Best sushi place around. Great service. Byob. Good prices. I highly recommend
You would expect this place to be on the North side or some trendy neighborhood. Love that it is BYOB. I was never a fan of Crab Ragoon, but after reading reviews on this place and everyone raved about it, I had to try it. OMG amazing! Only place I would ever order it. Great Pad Thai and rolls. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
The food was excellent, and the service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Everything was fresh, beautifully presented and delicious! Love the fact that this is BYOB. There are very few restaurants in this neighborhood that match Hands On in terms of food quality and presentation.
A colleague had sushi and said it was quite good. Various Thai dishes were all good, including soups.
It was difficult to find a cab - even to call one took over 15 minutes - and the restaurant was of little help. They should have a cab company they know to be reliable who knows where they are.
There is one very friendly and dedicated server in the whole restaurant, she is working very hard but it is just too much for one person.
We wanted to support our local neighborhood restaurant in Portage Park, but was disappointed on the service especially for Valentine's Day. For the entire restaurant there was only one server. It felt like we were bothering them when it came to service! Food is good, but will not be returning because the service was awful.
BYOB - Great, great Thai and sushi - I highly recommend this place!
Great Thi food and best part is that it is BYOB
Didn't realize I had a Sushi/Thai place so close to my house. Great atmosphere, looks like it belongs on the north side. We only had sushi and the Crab Ragoon. Would like to go back to try the Thai.
We eat Japanese food quite often, and have fairly high expectations given that we live close to an excellent sushi restaurant. We had to travel a bit out of the way to come here, and we're very glad we did. Had some really stellar items, and of course, each restaurant has its own take on this cuisine. We tried many different things from the Japanese side of the menu. Sashimi, appetizers, miso soup and several rolls. These ranged from very good to outstanding. The gyoza and miso were really excellent -- the gyoza was the best I've had. Brought a friend who is very discerning and he was quite impressed as well. Would definitely return -- better than downtown.
Nice, small place. Great crab Rangoon. They are tiny bite sized pieces. Order them with a side of chili sauce. delicious. Good spicy miso and good curries. I had the green curry with brown rice. Nice selection of sushi as well.
