Niu B Sushi & Robata - South Michigan Ave
Overall, my experience at Niu B was positive. I ordered the Kung Pao chicken and it was delicious. It was a busy lunch hour and they only had one or two servers working. I felt bad for our waitress as she was trying to manage all the orders and bring dishes out to the table. However, by the time I received my dish, everyone else in my party of 6 had finished theirs. Mine had been sitting at the other end of the cook line for quite some time. Despite this oversight, I will still go back if in the area.
Service and the food was amazing. Perfect place for after work, with some co-workers and friends.
Always amazing! Food, service and atmosphere. It’s my favorite lunch spot!
This was our second visit and as before the food was outstanding. Wonderful ramen (we got the happy hour $8 value) and maki. Also as before our server was mediocre although the bussers and front staff were great.
Es un buen lugar. Sin grandes exquisiteces pero puedes comer un buen sushi. La atención también normal.
The food was delicious but our waitress was rude and insisted on charging us for a sushi that we ordered but she never brought to us. She kept saying that the sushi was ready and that she could no longer cancel it even though we were already finished eating. Any time she came over to our table, she get our attention by interrupting our conversation in a very rude manner even though we were already paying attention to her. We ordered a sake tasting flight and she basically threw the glasses on the table and then didn’t tell us which sake was which and then got mad that we didn’t know which was the one we liked.
Overall the food was really good, but I don’t know if I would come back to dine in.
This south loop neighborhood restaurant is an intimate and cute place for dinner with friends. Services is great and food is wonderful.
Was surprised by the quality of the food, the preparation, and the flavor at this price point. A regular stop when I'm on this side of downtown.
Love this place. Tried 90 percent of the menu and almost everything is always tasty. Best mushroom hot and sour soup around. Great rolls and Ramen. I keep trying new places but always circle back here.
The service was outstanding as usual! The sushi tasted a bit different this time.
Exceptional fresh food presented in a creative way. Very nice staff and excellent service, I would highly recommend as one of the best Japanese restaurants I have experienced in Chicago
We were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the space was and how good the food turned out to be! We went for restaurant week and we were not disappointed.
My friend and I loved everything we ordered from the world
Wild mushroom ramen to the soft shelled crab maki, the agadashi tofu, poke salad and nigiri plate. We will be back. Note that the bussing service was excellent; our waitress was mediocre.
Great food. Was very pleased with the food and drink options. Sushi was very good also.
Great food and ambiance. The amount of food for the value was excellent.
My friend picked me up from work for an early dinner. I mentioned I was in the mood for Sushi and he mentioned wanting to try Niu B Sushi & Robata. He's typically very good about picking restaurants so I did not bother to check out the menu prior to going.
In general the food was disappointing:
1. I don't understand the entire cream cheese and Sushi combination; If I want cream cheese on my fish I'll order bagels, lox and cream cheese.
2. This was not a Sushi Restaurant. It was something you would expect to find in the suburbs that serviced Sushi, Chinese, Thai, etc.
3. The sautéed spring beans where awesome; other than that everything I ate was over sauces so I could not taste the fish.
4. Specialty cocktails were great.
In closing, not my type of restaurant, or food preparation. That said, it gets good ratings so other people like it. However, if you are a Sushi fan, find someplace else to spend your money.
got better ratings from us in past. service still good and sushi is mostly successful, but a noodle dish with a heavy sauce fell flat. the onions in it were good , but due to sauce dark brown color of the sauce, could not find the similar-sized pork, which was a bit chewy and fatty.
good drinks and sake helped. great location across from Grant Park. Is the location of the former Oysy, which is elsewhere now, and hopefully still good enough to find again; the crowds they used to see are gone.
Surprisingly good with such cheap prices. Services were good too. A very worthy place to spend money on a trip. Keep it up!
Fresh food in a friendly, upbeat place! Nice variety on the menu and attentive servers!
First off, upon checking in, we requested to be seated outside and they gave us a nice outdoor table. The food was great but the service left a little to be desired. The waitstaff seemed harried although there was hardly anyone there upon arrival. It did start to fill up, which was encouraging. As I said, the food was great. Upon returning to our hotel room, we received an email claiming that we had missed our reservation with a reminder of the cancellation policy. They asked us to kindly cancel, if we didn’t plan to show up! We don’t make it a habit to “no show” and found it insulting to be accused as such. Open Table to their credit, apologized & stated that they would speak to the restaurant. We’d like to try this establishment again whenever we’re back in Chicago because the food was good & everyone is entitled to a bad day. Overall, this place is okay!
Lovely restaurant and generous portion size Extensive ment
Rolls were a bit overwhelming. Too much sauce overwhelmed fish and other ingredients.
We were visiting Chicago and found Niu B Sushi on Opentable. The reviews were bang on, very good food on Michigan avenue that wasn't expensive. We were staying in the Hilton Chicago which was only a short walk from the restaurant. It was busy but we didn't have to wait long for our food. The server was quite attentive. We has nigiri and rolls. All were tasty.
Close to the Hilton Hotel, so it was convenient for convention attendees. There were six of us, and we all had something different. There were gluten-free and vegetarian options, and the prices were reasonable. The service was good. The Open Table app made the reservation process easy- even from my seat in a plenary session!
Great food, wonderful ambiance and great service. Very reasonably priced.
Best sushi I’ve ever had. Enjoyed the scallops wrapped in prosciutto and grilled. Skip the lychee martini and go for the ginger one. Moderately priced for chicago. Dinner for two with two martinis and two glasses of wine for under $100.
My son knocked over my cocktail and they didn’t ask if I wanted another. I apologized for him knocking it over and they barely said two words to me. No refills on non-alcoholic drinks. The food was really good but the attitude of the staff wasn’t.
The food, service and request are always perfect. We love this place and will continue to come, bring and tell friends about it.
Very generous sashimi portions and pleasant, fast service.
Pretty decent sushi for Chicago! Overpriced wine as you would expect.
Good quality food with very good portions.
Sushi was fantastic. Absolutely exceptional experience. Can't wait to get back.
Great food.....interesting and tasty. Excellent service. Good spot in the neighbourhood.
Great sushi place walking distance to CSO and Art Institute events. The sushi was wonderful and at a good price for downtown. Week nights are not busy so you can get a table and have a pretty easy, quick, and quiet experience.
good，but not perfect, the sushi is not so delicious but the noodles taste much better!
We came early for our reservation but were seated immediately! They made sure we were comfortable! Our waitress was very helpful with recommendations and very friendly. Our food was excellent! We came on the amazing review our friend gave us of their experience and we were not disappointed!
Always great food and service
Fantastic service, out of this world food. Unique and filling dishes with beautiful presentation.
It was amazing! Staff was accommodating. Would recommend coming here again!
Service was attentive and timely. Food was excellent. A great find!
