Each Shakou Restaurant’s atmosphere has a uniqueness of its own while staying true to the core vibe of the brand venue vision. Each location features perfectly balanced décor, stylish comfortable seating and cool colored lights bouncing off of carefully placed Asian art work accompanied by euphoric house beats subtly bumping in the background. Shakou Restaurants have been named in the Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America and in the Top 10 Chicago Asian Eateries by Open Table.

The food was outstanding, and the wine was great too. I love the interior, beautiful decor. My only negative comment would be that it was a bit loud with the music going on upstairs.

I always enjoy the food and the atmosphere, I come here a lot! I usually come on a Friday or Saturday- I love the music, I need to find out what playlist they use. It’s also a great place to come if you want to get a drink!

Second time to great! Service not as great as our first visit... but oh well could have been an off night for our server... she seemed to have a lot of tables ... when booking reservation I indicated it was my sisters birthday and at check in they acknowledged it was a birthday celebration ... I didn’t think I’d have to do anything after that ... but no recognition of her birthday ... we traveled 35 minutes from Wisconsin for great dinner and we were not dissapointed ...just hoping for that extra special for my sister who has a toddler and doesn’t get out much but no there was none ... so I guess be specific if birthday celebration ... otherwise great atmosphere... great food ... ( music a bit too loud for conversation while dining)

Music was to loud, it was difficult to have a normal conversation. Every thing else was excellent.

The food took a little time to come, but other wise the food was excellent. Honestly best sushi I’ve ever had!! I went for a valentines date with my boyfriend and this restaurant was recommended to me. I was not disappointed. Again food took a while, but worth the wait! I’ll come again!! Along with the service. She recommended some dishes too!

Really had a great time at this restaurant....the wine and very good food was a part of that. Also our waiter was excellent! Very attentive, but also left us alone to enjoy ourselves, perfect combination! All in all, I would gladly recommend Shakou and would gladly go back there to dine!

Very disappointing. Made reservations almost a month ago for my boyfriend's birthday. We were both looking forward to trying it out. We arrived 10 mins before our reservation and were told by management at the hostess station that she was sitting us in the bar area. I said, "even with a reservation?" She responded very snotty with, "well, it's going to be a 45 min in wait then." We reluctantly took the high top in the bar area. 15 min after being seated we watch another couple come in and were seated promptly at a table in the dining area. I was furious. While sitting at our table, a party of about 10 crowded around the bar directly behind where we were seated. A rowdy group that kept knocking into my boyfriend who was trying to enjoy his birthday dinner. Horrible experience! Service was good by the waitstaff, food was mediocore and overpriced. Young children running around and music so loud, we could barely converse. I will never return.

The food was delicious as always. A little chilly in the downstairs so dress warmly. It feels like they still have the A.C. blowing even though it was snowing. Being cold even wearing a sweater is not fun when you are trying to enjoy your meal, especially sitting next to a ginormous window.
