This is a small restaurant that offers Chinese and Thai dishes as well as Japanese. I was there for lunch with another couple and we ordered the lunch maki as well as their salads. The tuna and salmon salads were terrific and the maki rolls were good as well. While the dining room is small there is outside dining as... More

The sushi was pretty good the first time I ordered from here but I was very disappointed this last time. I ordered $89 worth of specialty rolls that I ended up tossin in the garbage. All of the rolls tasted the same, nasty! They used imitation crab meat as a filler for all the rolls. They were fancy lookin garbage... More

Our sushi was pretty fresh and just average flavor-wise. But what was impressive was how the waitresses handled a loud, possibly mentally imbalanced customer. What could have easily become confrontational was adroitly finessed. Hats off to them!

We mostly order family take-out meals from here, been doing so for a long time. Fresh, not overly salty, can get sauce on the side to avoid sogginess. The test is: the rice is decently cooked, not to hard and not too soft. A good variety. Can't go wrong, if you have the right expectations. Average delivery time.

This restaurant is in an interesting location. And because of that location, parking can be a bit sparse, especially during certain hours, though there is a small parking lot on the south side of the restaurant. The restaurant itself is quite small and can probably seat around 20 inside, and about the same outside on a small patio. The problem... More

Can't decide if you want sushi, Chinese, Japanese or Thai? This place does it all, and is consistently great. While I love the rainbow rolls, their Cantonese Chicken Chow Mein is marvelous, on a crispy bed of lightly fried noodles. And the Pad Thai? Among the best of the best.

One of my favorite places for take out. It is always fresh and the staff does an excellent job! Love the mini egg rolls, salmon avocado roll and the spicy shrimp roll.

I love the location of this place. The food is amazing and the staff is fairly friendly. Defenatly try the Mt. Fuji, and the South of the Border Maki - two of my favs. The best thing is that I don't have to go down town for the cozy, modern, chic design. It is very inviting! I like to come... More

We had take out from Hot Woks on our trip to Chicago, on the recommendation of local friends. The Sushi, I must say was flavorful and delicious. For those seeking a more authentic sushi experience, this isnt the place for you, but is great if you are just looking for a good meal.

Order from Hot Woks quite a bit and their sushi doesn't disappoint. Wife and I especially like their Mount Fuji rolls which comes with tuna, I believe, and a sliver of jalapeno. A nice spicy, but not too spicy, roll! Also tried their beef teriyaki and pad thai which both were good as well.
