Hot Woks Cool Sushi represents the culmination of a variety of Asian flavors. Although many of us have been raised in the traditional kitchens of our cultures, the diversity of our world has enabled us to experience & blend the best of many regions.
Similar to the Asian philosophy of balance represented by the Yin Yang symbol, Hot Woks Cool Sushi seeks to maintain the traditional balance of favorite classic dishes & seeks to merge the flavors of different ethnic regions to create a cultural evolution of taste.

Food was good, service just ok. Served us lukewarm egg rolls. I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

I am usually wary of chains, but we had some really good sushi and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted.

We were looking for a quiet table away from kids so we decided to sit outside. It was a little chilly but the noise level was just right. Our server was less than impressive. We felt like everything took awhile and at times she was confused. The food was really good. I enjoyed my make rolls more than my friend enjoyed hers though. I ordered two signature rolls that I would recommend (fukadome & Mt Fuji). The part I was most impressed with was the service we received after we left. The delivery driver found my friend's debit card outside the restaurant & the owner tracked down my number and called me to make us aware. We were sooo thankful & excited they went the extra mile for us. Parking was easy and it's a local play I will eat at again.

With an excellent outdoor sitting area, Hot Wok Cool Sushi has something for the entire family. This being Roscoe Village, they make sure to take care of kids. The wait staff was very attentive and above all the sushi was delicious and affordable.

We've been so many times that we get greeted by our first names, and we keep going back because it's such good food but with friendly service to match. They've also introduced specials which have fast become a favorite - the XOXO beef is so tasty. Always pristine, everything is cooked fresh and you never get the feeling they're too busy.

Food was awesome - our table had people ordering both rolls and entrees, and everything was delicious. Restaurant was eerily quiet and slow for a nice Saturday night. Service was super friendly and nice but a little slow. Overall a good experience, just wondering why the place wasnt busier.

Caveat-it was valentines day, but a restaurant should prepare. Table wasn't ready per reservation. Didn't want to sit next to the door, so we sat at the counter. Manager (maybe) saw our disdain and told us he would set a new table as someone was just leaving. That took 15 minutes. We sat there for 10 more before someone asked us if we wanted a drink. We ordered everything at once seeing how things were going. 25 minutes later my Panang came, semi warm, and it was almost cold 10 minutes later when my partners sushi arrived. Sushi wasn't great. Saw waitress twice the whole evening and someone else had to get our check for us. Never got the advertised valentines fortune cookie, or any for that matter. Focus clearly was on take out, not us.

Not my first time and won't be my last - always a great place for good quality, tasty food and drinks. We went early on Friday at 5pm before the rush, greeted by name, seated straight away, and excellent service. This is now a staple on our going-out list for a no fuss, no risk, guaranteed quality meal and enjoyable date.

Given that it is a chain, the food was very good, the service was great, and the atmosphere was comfortable.
