I had the country tofu and really loved it! The portions are very big.
Love this place staff and food amazing - best priced sushi in the city
Staf is very welcoming and provides a high personal touch, remembers repeat guests preferences and orders.
Maybe they should have servers who actually have people skills
Shine is the perfect Lincoln Park go to. It's one of my favorite walkable sushi places in LP, Toro is always insane with the waits and it's over-rated. Shine also has a much larger menu and selection of cuisines. The staff is so friendly and the service is quick too.
Valentine’s Day reservation for 7:30, seated at 8:00, foot arrived at 9:15, left at 10:00. Seems lengthy for sushi.
Lunar new year meal was delicious. The place was crowded and food a tiny bit slow but wait staff was great. Will definitely go back.
I've been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed their food. It was basically a Chinese restaurant that also served some Japanese dishes, including sushi. They must have changed their menu as they know have more of a pan-asian menu that really isn't one way or the other. They do not have egg rolls or any bbq pork or pork ribs (staples of any Chinese restaurant) and the Sesame Chicken that I orderd (and requested spicy) was much too sweet. Unless I was in the mood for sushi, I would not go back for the new menu.
Great food, inexpensive for the area, and just a fabulous experience. We had a three-year-old with us and the staff was extremely accommodating.
Love the sushi at Shine. I cannot get enough of the red dragon. The service was excellent too.
The service we received at Shine went (and always is) above and beyond excellent, and the sushi is outstanding.
Always incredible food and service. Tuk is the best waitress ever - can’t not be happy around her! One of the most reliable and consistent sushi places in the neighborhood.
One of our favorite Asian Restaurants in the City of Chicago
Always enjoy the food, portion size and quality
We love this place. Tonight we were sat by the door and the server took forever. So long we didn’t want more drinks bc he took 20 mins to bring first ones.
Usually great. Service bad tonight.
This has been a favorite since 2017. Love the spring roos, crab rangoon, sesame chicken. Only place I'll eat sesame chicken. Consistent, nice, live taking our family.
Excellent food and service. Our new favorite place to eat sushi, among other things.
Good food and service, we enjoyed the great feed beef app
Sushi is great but haven’t been impressed with anything else on the menu. They sat us immediately next to another group despite the restaurant being quite empty.
Ordered a curry dish and they gave us a sweet teriyaki dish instead? Just overall not a great experience
We had a nice meal for five folks on a Sunday afternoon. Overall, the food was tasty and the presentation was nice. I wouldn't call this highly elevated dining, but it is solid food in a nice dining room. The staff was friendly.
We always enjoy our family celebrations
At Shine our waitress is the best!
The same great food quality as Rise on Southport, its sister restaurant. Great friendly service and extremely consistent.
Food was wonderful! Most of the rolls from rise were on the shine menu. The restaurants light were blinking non stop and it was very distracting. We will go back for the food and service.
They need to fix the lighting or just replace the lights.
Everything was very tasty. Service was very pleasant and quick. Prices were reasonable. Good variety of menu choices and combinations. Clean with very comfortable ambiance. Total experience was great, especially for dates or family dining.
Excellent service waitress made us feel very welcome since we are retuning guests
Presentation of the food is perfect , Shine is our favorite Asian Restaurant in the Lincoln Park Area
The service here is excellent! Our server-Cheryl-was so courteous, and she really knew the menu well.
We ordered 4 Sushi rolls-all were excellent, but in particular, the roll with the Kobe Beef is delicious, and such a treat!
We will definitely be back again for dinner soon!
This place has been mine and my wife's go-to for amazing asian influenced food. Staff is super friendly and the food is great.
Our server, Cherry, was excellent. She was very attentive and accommodating and had excellent suggestions for our children. The tuna tartar was tasty as was the skinny maki. My husband had the golden dragon maki and he was very happy with that choice. My lychee martini was super tasty!!
Have come to Shine for 10+ years. For some reason service and food were well sub par but due large party size, we were automatically charged a service fee. Not right for bad experience.
Cute place with great food! Full bar with specialty cocktails. Yum!
Not as good as it used to be. Crispy noodles neither crispy or noodles.
Food was great, loved the Shanghai soup dumplings. The atmosphere was good, not too crowded and the service was great. Staff was all very friendly - highly recommend!
Service was...strange. The bus boy kept shoving his elbow in my face, and was at our table so much he should have just sat down. Contrarily, the actual server was slow on food and drink delivery, then disappeared. Food was okay - I'd go back to other Asian fusion restaurants before doing this one again.
This place is consistently good with a great variety on their menu. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a nice sushi restaurant in Lincoln Park.
Food and service were quite good. It was comfortable for 6 adults and 3 little kids, with large portions of tasty foods. We were looking for a new go-to Chinese restaurant and we found it! Shine On!
The food was good however the pad Thai did not taste like pad Thai. Maybe cause it's an Asian restaurant and not Thai specifically? Ended up ordering something else... the beef and broccoli which was out of this world good! So just be aware it may not taste like what you are accustomed to but there are good dishes to be had.
Authentic, clean. Nice tea service. Appreciate the warm hand cleanser as we were seated. Food never disappoints.
Always great service & great food!!!
Generally good food and service, but food was overly salty.
The food was fresh and so tasty. My husband and I gave our 20 year old daughter the choice of any restaurant in Chicago for her birthday dinner, and Shine was her one and only pick. WE LOVE THIS RESTAURANT
Amazing service, great food, friendly staff. Highly recommended
