We come to Nabuki all the time and we love it here! Service was fantastic and the tent was very warm on the cold friday night outside!
Michael and Brian are amazing! Always great food and drinks
Always excellent food and great service.
Nabuki is hands down the best sushi place I have ever been too. Always a great experience dining here. And I love that the servers are always so knowledgeable and can recommend great options when we are looking to try something new.
The service was phenomenal along with the food - attentive, fun, well-informed waiters made our night amazing. The crispy tuna is a secret off-menu item that made me feel like I died and went to heaven. We bought a Nabuki sweatshirt because we had such a great night! Thanks team xo
great experience just bad music playing and service was a little on the slower side
We went for my sons Birthday..
Awesome as usual! Super safe & compliant with all safety protocols. Love this place!
Insulting Service- too bad, food was good.
I have never written a bad review, nor felt the need to. Our experience was terrible. We were a family of four sitting outside for dinner on a Thursday evening. Three generations from 22-79. The wait times for initial service, then food, was not acceptable. After 50 minutes, I went inside, told the manager I think the outside server needs help- and he laughed at me. He acted as if I had some nerve. Finally, 75 minutes, the appetizers and sushi food arrived all at once, except soup came 5 minutes later. The waiter kept a TOO casual tone, trying to explain they were swamped with take away orders.
At that time, my 79 year old mother, a former GM of a Hilton hotel, told him the service was terrible, asked for the check, and his reply was “Rock and Roll - Heard” (can’t make this up, can I?) - then 15 minutes later brought the check over, slammed it down to this 79 year old, and said “Here you GO, Honey Bun!” REALLY?? Insulting.
The food was good, but 4 rolls of sushi, lettuce wraps and 2 bowls of Miso should have been PACED better, like a good restaurant and server would. All at once, the food barely fit on the small round table outside.
On the way out, my mother told the hostess. The manager was certainly not going to listen. The young hostess was lovely, kind and said all the right things. She was the best person we experienced. My guess is her parents, not Nabuki, trained her to be kind and respectful.
I would reconsider dining at Nabuki.
The hostesses were able to accommodate our outdoor request even though I mistakenly reserved a table indoors. The tables were spaced appropriately. Our server was personable and informed on dietary needs. The drinks (spicy marg) and rolls (specifically, the Stanley Cup) were outstanding. The tent was a little warm and a few times food was delivered to our table incorrectly but all in all it was a positive experience under the circumstances. Some things took a while but understandable.
Our family loves sushi, and Nabuki is my favorite local place for sushi outside of the city. Due to COVID, they have had to space out the tables and took over the store space next door to accommodate social distancing. The service was fantastic, and our meal was delicious and our best thus far. Unfortunately, the scented candles they were burning for some reason smelled like something out of a bad dollar-store- imitation-pot-pourri and really smelled so awful and affects how you taste the food, not to mention my husband’s allergies and aversion to smelly candles. The ambience was empty. But our server was amazing as was the food and still made it an enjoyable birthday dinner.
Absolutely fantastic. Nabuki offers a varied menu, features super fresh sushi with many other great options for non-sushi folks. Perfect for date night or a night out with friends. The food, cocktails, service and ambiance are all top notch.
Fantastic food. Great lunch spot.
Food and service were great. We were first to use the new next door space and they were still working kinks out on service and temperature.
A dessert or drink would have been nice, but we loved the food!!
Been wanting to try for awhile, finally did and was not disappointed. Food was amazing, sat in bar area and Sharon the bartender is the best. She made great recommendations on food and her drinks were just as good.
The best sushi. Loved that they had additional outdoor seating!
Awesome food and drinks - good outdoor space, could accommodate our group of 6!
Sharon is awesome!
Sharon at the bar is always friendly!
Best sushi in Illinois! Beats any place in Chicago even!
Remains the best sushi in all of Chicagoland, and is worth a trip down the street or even a train ride from the City.
The food was OK but the service was extremely slow. We placed our entire order at once and it took 2 hours to complete dinner. The appetizers came out about 30 minutes later but in piecemeal fashion. Then, about 45 minutes later, one entre was served but it was at least 5 minutes before the other two came out - meaning, it was cold by the time everyone received their entre. And, that was the only hot dish - the other two were cold sushi dishes. Oh well. There are other sushi places to visit.
We had a cocktail and enjoyed a quick bite before we had to be somewhere. It was so fresh and yummy.
Great as always! Drinks and sushi..great combo for sure!
The food was good however the service and ambiance was not so good. If you want to sit in the dark or listen to other guests talk super loud at each other than it’s good. Not a place to have an intimate conversation. The hostess was very disengaged and when we were seated by the door in the dark. She didn’t seem to care when we asked to be moved to an area that wasn’t dark. It took awhile for our server to appear and our drinks later. The food when it did arrive was very good. Not sure I’ll go back, maybe for lunch but definitely not for dinner.
We went to Nabuki during restaurant week and it was fabulous. A great deal for the price and the food was tasty.
I live in Chicago and the drive to Hinsdale to Nabuki is well worth it. Of all the sushi places I have to choose from, Nabuki is my favorite. The food is excellent, the ambiance is very nice but casual and unpretentious. Our server (I think her name was Kayleigh) was wonderful. It was a wonderful dinner and I recommend trying the chef's special rolls and the crab jalapeno appetizer. So good!
Always a great place! The sushi is fresh and inventive. We had a wonderful meal- we always sit at the bar and had a great conversation with the sushi chef who was nice enough to give us a couple of small plates of things to try! This is the best sushi restaurant in the western suburbs.
Sharon is awesome
Of my top 10 favorite food items, 3 are at Nabuki. Crabby Tuna, Asian Tacos, Stanley Cup roll. SO GOOD!!
We frequent Nabuki once a month and love the food and ambiance! Always a great time!!
We enjoyed dinner at the lively Nabuki on a Saturday night! We had great cocktails and loved the Ika salad and very yummy sashimi! Melted in our mouths! Delicious!
Food always outstanding. Service was fine, but we ordered a bottle and the server clearly didn't know the proper steps for bottle service (show the bottle, pour a taste, fill the rest of the guests first, top up evenly, etc.). That's a real bummer when you're at a nice restaurant, but sadly often the case in the suburbs. Also, the wine list was littered with mistakes and that kind of drives me crazy. Still will be back because the sushi is sooooo good.
Our server, Peter, was excellent!
I frequent Nabuki with my family and make it one of my professional spots for meetings over dinner/drinks. My strong preference is to sit at the bar as the service is much more consistent and the noise level is better. The food is consistently good to great. It is one of the more reliable options in the area and I will continue my patronage there because of it.
Food was delicious, especially the crazy jalapeño
Great food at fair prices. The sea bass was cooked to perfection with an excellent sauce and glaze. The tuna poke was an interesting pleasure, made even better with a glass of white wine.
Our waitress was amazing and suggested the best appetizers
Sushi was fantastic and fresh! It was my husband’s birthday and I had said this on our reservation. Not even a happy birthday wish which was disappointing! Would go back for the sushi but not for a special occasion.
Love this sushi spot. One of the best, even compared to city options. Great vibe for the suburbs. Solid sashimi and rolls.
