Kohan on Maxwell is more than a sushi restaurant-it's an integral part of the neighborhood. "Our patrons treat us like we are part of their family," General Manager Steve Ko explains. "We try to do the same for them. Finer food with a friendly approach is our restaurant's main goal." Furthermore, though the sushi could be considered among the best in Chicago, the menu offers a creative and diverse selection for everyone. There is a variety of fresh sashimi and nigiri plates for the sushi fanatics, while the new Asian tapas plates offer a plethora of flavors to those not quite ready to take on raw sushi. The bite sized portions offer a variety of choices for every taste. There are always daily drink specials and Kohan is available for catering or on-site parties. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a five star quality meal and service at a reasonable price.

Waitress was very, very nice ( hence the rating) I was the only customer ( late lunch@4:00pm). Tables were clean. Music was awful. Lobster tail was incinerated- texture like rubber and completely dried out)
Vegetable tempura was soggy. The dipping sauce was good. I went to wash my hands as the food was arriving, and soon realized that they did not have any soap in the ladies bathroom. Think about that.

We had the veggie tempura appetizer which was excellent. We had the chicken teriyaki for dinner which was also very good.

Nice clean place with great service and food. Ambience was calm and quiet. Great for a date where you can have a conversation without having to shout to one another.

Amazing food, but the interior does not give a hint of that. Great variety of dishes though!

The people who work at Kohan are the sweetest people you will ever meet. They really care about their customers. When you walk in, they give you some soup on the house too! This is by far one of my favorite restaurants and it's the warming staff and the tasty and beautiful food that do it!!! You would be crazy not to love it!

I've been eating at Kohan since it opened, and I have never been disappointed by the quality of the food or the friendliness of the service. The staff is very kind and always happy make recommendations, encouraging me to try dishes that I might not otherwise order.

Great sushi. This restaurant is tucked away on a cobbled street. Parking is only two dollars in the evening. Excellent.

My boyfriend and I found this place off of Open Table. I was nervous that it was going to be a place full of college kids with mediocre sushi. I am happy to report that my original feelings were incredibly wrong. The staff was so friendly and explained the menu for us. We ordered the shrimp dumplings- SO GOOD-, the W3, and another roll that I can't remember the name of. Our order also came with miso soup which was a nice touch. The food was incredible! My boyfriend also enjoyed trying different Japanese beers, which he thought was a cool experience. I will definitely be going back. Their lunch specials look like an amazing deal, so hopefully I can try one of those soon!
