Appetizers were good, however our entrees were mediocre. Way too loud for an outdoor setting, however our server was fantastic and was running the show!

"Crying Tiger" was delicious. Will definitely get the shumai again, along with the road duck bao. All three desserts were excellent, with the banana wontons being our all-around favorite.

I used to love this place, but no AC when it was over 90 outside was horrible. My friend and I were sweating while we were eating and honestly took our food to-go because we couldn't take it anymore. The food, however, was sub-par. The tuna tostada was drowning in chile oil, the pad Thai was super bland, and the ramen was okay. The two delicious things were the bao buns and the yucca fries. I'm not sure I want to go back, but if I did I'd definitely order something completely different and eat it in the comfort my own home.

Great find!! Looking for a place to sit outside and have a quick bite before a Cubs game. Tried Bites and I'm glad I did. Nice looking outdoor area. Food was excellent. From the appetizers to the craft cocktails everything looked great, smelled great and tasted great. Staff was friendly and spot on with the recommendations. Definitely will visit again.

Food is AMAZING! Our service was a little slow, we waited for drinks (water and soda only) for about 15 minutes each time. They were pretty busy with a very large party inside so that was understandable for the most part.

This place has amazing food! Seriously, a winner. The service was somewhat average. No water refills and long wait for food. Hard to hear each other across the table as it was very noisy and there was another party right next to us. The chairs outside were odd for dining as well but overall, I would definitely come back.

Food tasty and unique enough to be interesting. Mussels very good, in particular. Drinks unique and good (but with more ice than liquid) and took longer to be served than the food.

Great service. Awesome food! Fun drinks! Love it there every time. I can’t live without the spicy crab Rangoon (best in the city) and the duck yakisoba is money! The host and server were so kind and hospitable too.

I love the small concepts and having a bit of everything throughout a meal. We had edamame, the coconut shrimp, and some rolls in addition to a bao and some steak appetizer. It was all so delicious!! Ambiance is very cool, very nice for a date. They also have a very affordable happy hour.

Patio was ok, we were unlucky and were there with bunch of loud crowds, food is ok, hard to tell the portion being bite size or large since everything is reasonably priced so definitely ask, we ended up with bunch of left over to go boxes.
