We are from out of town and love Chinese so thought we would give this place a try. I like the mix of Chinese and sushi. Great place for all likes:)
I didn't think the food was appetizing. It says a lot about a place that can't even make a mediocre spring roll. And my orange chicken was so sweet, it tasted like a dessert. I couldn't eat more of it.
Cheap Sushi at a very affordable price. Good quality ingredients and fish were at an appropriate freshness. Fast service and other dishes such as the Mandarin Chicken, Panang Curry, and Tofu Steak were great.
The service, food, ambiance and overall experience at Hot Woks Cool Sushi was quite good.
Something for everyone on this menu and they also were able to cater to my strange allergies. Relief to find such great food downtown Chicago within walking distance of our hotel on a Friday night. For what appears to be a chain restaurant, very good quality food.
A friend recommended this place and I wasn't sure to make of it when I previewed their menu. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised once I got there. Yes, the place was packed, but the energy of the restaurant was infectious. Although we had reservations, I'm thinking this place is more of "walk-in" establishment. We were seated after a 10-minute wait time, which wasn't too bad. We skipped the appetizers and ordered entrees. Since I rarely eat meat, I ordered the Tofu 'Steak". OMG, it was fantasitc! This slices of tofu, battered and fried, with mushrooms, broccoli and snow peas, topped with a light brown gravy and a bowl of white rice on the side. The portions were good and I cleaned my plate! I will definitely go back again.
Great food, reasonable priced, and a really great atmosphere! Give it a try of any of your special occasions, you won't be disappointed!
Decent sushi, not a huge selection but fair priced. Clean restaurant. I will visit again.

Hey Hey! We've been to this HWCS 3 or 4 times now and each other time it wasn't bad. This time, however (since OT asks) it wasn't good. The edamame was weird, mushy and tasteless. The Miso had a strange, chemical-like flavor and odor to it. The nigiri seemed less than fresh, and not very flavorful. We've had no complaints before. It wasn't the best sushi we've had, but it was passable and not overpriced. This time, if this had been our first time, it would be our last. We might give it another chance, but if similar to this most recent visit, no third strike will be risked.
We don't go to sushi restaurants often, so I can't really compare to other establishments. But Hot Woks Cool Sushi was the best sushi we've had in a long time. I won't say that it's cheap, but certainly moderately priced, and the portions are appropriate for the price. They have an extensive menu with so many wonderful-sounding dishes that it was hard to make a decision.
We had a concert to get to, so we couldn't stay as long as we wanted. We've already talked about coming up again with no other commitments and spending the evening sipping wine and trying many more of the menu items. Overall, a wonderful experience with no complaints!
I had dinner at Hot Woks last week. The sushi was outstanding and very fresh! Highly recommend the Signature rolls! Hoping to have dinner there again this week.
Excellent service and food. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner. The sushi is fresh and reasonable priced.
Excellent Asian food and service in a beautiful space.
The sushi was good. It was a slow night. I thought the service could've been better. Reasonably priced. Good place if sushi is your thing.
I like the ambience of this little Asian restaurant. And the food was great.
High quality asian fusion food at a reasonable price in the loop. We were happy to find it and will go again.
This is a great place for everyday takeout or a special occasion. Definitely go on Wednesday for $5 martini's that don't cut corners. Even if you don't eat tofu, try the Vegetarian Delight. It is delicious!
The food was good, nothing amazing. The service was very, very good and we had a nice time.
Maki rolls were good. My husband's chicken dish was pretty good but nothing spectacular. Would probably eat here again.
Their food was very good, and I would certainly suggest this restaurant for take-out. Their service was very poor, and with only 6 tables to serve, we barely could get our server's attention to order.
Food was fresh and prepared well. Great place to go after work or lunch. The bartender that night was great and the service was very good.
Great service. Cool atmosphere. Very reasonable pricing.
What a great find !! If you are looking for a great place to eat sushi before you get on a train at Union Station - Hot Woks Cool Sushi is your place. The food was wonderful, the staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back.
Good food and great service! We will be back!
Great service, polite staff and gorgeous clean restaurant. The atmosphere, music, and lighting were very relaxing and smooth.
We weren't expecting much when we stopped in for a quick bite after work, but the ambiance of the restaurant was surprisingly nice. Service was efficient although there was a little bit of language barrier which resulted in my wife receiving not exactly what she ordered. Everything that did arrive was quite good, however. Price was a little high, but that's to be expected for most downtown restaurants.
