If I had to pick a last meal, it would be Chef Soon! This is our favorite restaurant, hands down! Vicki is the most amazing server and Eddie is a fabulous bartender. I have never had such amazing sushi—I recommend going and following your server’s recommendations—you won’t be disappointed.

By far, the absolute best sushi around. This is one of our favorite places to eat. It’s never disappointing. The sushi and sashimi are spectacular and so fresh. ALWAYS. The only negative attribute is the service. With a few exceptions, the servers are just not good - rude, pushy, don’t know the food items well. The quality and atmosphere keep us coming, however. The service could be improved.

Chef Soon has the freshest sushi I have ever tasted. The Chef himself is often there on the weekends making the sushi. The variety is different and very flavorful. The sushi is somewhat expensive but for what you are getting it is well worth it, the ingredients are very fresh. The staff is great and will make suggestions if you can't decide on something. Chef Soon needs a bigger restaurant! He could probably fill a place 2X the size and do very well. Check it out, SO SO good!

I love Chef Soon and it is by far the best sushi in the state of Illinois. It is a hidden gem in Woodridge and I am just glad that I was able to uncover it. That being said, you definitely pay for the premium sushi experience.

Vegetable tempura appetizer was prepared perfectly; vegetables retained their texture and flavor and thin batter was crisp. Ordered sushi from the special maki menu. Best sushi I have ever eaten. Drinks were just ok. Service was attentive and helpful.

Good food, was a bit louder than expected. The sushi was great. Not a lot of rice like other restaurants so you get to actually taste the sushi. Had to request ginger and wasabi, though not sure if that’s normal or server “forgot” to bring it. Overall good dining experience, friendly place where at least 4 people said goodbye as we left. Definitely would recommend!

The sushi was top notch! Scott was our server and gave us excellent recommendations, including the chef soon specialty maki and the blazing mango. We weren’t going to get dessert, but he sold us on the black sesame ice cream. It’s not on the menu, but it was to die for. Overall, it was a great date night spot.

I brought my daughter to our favorite restaurant as she was home from college and I put that in the notes when I made the reservation. Everyone from the host, to the server, to the bartender, to the busser, all said welcome home to her. The food is always outstanding, i think the best Sushi house in the area, but to have everyone make her and myself feel so special was going above and beyond. Huge thumbs up!
