Shakou Arlington Heights
My parents anniversary
Great food and excellent service!
My birthday! We were so full by the end of the meal. It was just amazing
Service was great. Food was delicious!
Food was very good, but service extremely slow. We flagged down our server and were able to order dinner 20 minutes AFTER appetizers were done. Seating by windows was frigid (put on winter coats) and we left the seats immediately adjacent to windows empty
We don’t mind paying the price for the value of food but the servers were very snotty especially the hostess. When I called to make a reservation at the end of the call she hung up without saying goodbye. I received very rude vibes from the hostess when we arrived as well. Just simply smile and ask how your day has been like a normal person!
Very nice family evening
After just one date here, my husband and I agreed that this is now our favorite sushi place! Perfect portions (we were able to actually eat dessert too), the service was absolutely phenomenal, and not to mention the food was a whole new level of amazing that neither of us had experienced before. 10/10 would recommend to anybody thinking about going here. Also, the crab cake appetizer was delicious too!
It was very loud,could not even have a conversation at the table, drink was ver bad,tested like a water w an ice, teriyaki chicken was awful, would not recommend it to anyone.It use to be a good restaurant,but not any more
We had a wonderful Early New Years Eve dinner. Thank you!
Awesome food and service!!
Great food, great service!
Great food, great ambiance, and awesome service. Highly recommended and will definitely go back.
Excellent - the only negative was that the sound system music was playing so loud that it was difficult to have a conversation
Didn’t get my points
Great Christmas Eve Meal with great food and service.
Christmas Eve dinner
Shakou is always good. We had three different maki platters, a bi mi bop entree and two kinds of soup—Shumai and seafood miso. All were excellent and reasonably priced. 4 people were more than satisfied
Food was excellent! And service was excellent! Would definitely go back every time in the Chicago land area...

5.00 for a cup of regular coffee and 5.00 for a refill is absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!! We didn't realize untill we received the bill. Didn't want to say anything because we were with other people!
Great service! We come in about once a month and I cannot recall our server's name, but we've been seated in her section several times in the past and were greeted as friends and talked about her recent hair cut. Just nice to see an always-friendly face. Food is dependably great. Love the bulgolgi egg rolls!
Same prices , but definitely not as good as blufish.
Classy place reminds me of a chicago lounge. Food is very good we all loved it and the variety. I wish I took pics because the presentation is amazing as welll. Can’t wait to go back.
We had a delicious meal as always. Wonderful wait staff too. One of my favorite restaurants!
We enjoy our dining experience whenever we come to Shakou.
Big menu and great food. Waitress explained everything, very helpful as it was my first time there. The only negative is that it was very, very noisy, i could barley hear the person across the table. Will wait for summer when the outside section is open.
Love Shakou and Chris is the best server! He always takes great care of us and knows our orders by heart !
I love this place! I’m gluten free and normally Miso soup is not and at Shakou it is and never had any problems! I’m also allergic to sesame seeds and they do an amazing job of no sesame seeds!
We went on a Saturday evening. The place was crowded and lively. Everything we had was excellent and our server was very good. The atmosphere is modernistic and attractive but the bare surfaces result in a noise level that makes conversation difficult. Great spot for sushi and Asian cuisine.
Everything was excellent, it was my husband birthday last Friday, so I wanted to give a nice dinner. Shakou it is the perfect place I thought. The food was delicious, excellent service and very nice music. Some friends joined us too, they were really impressed.
Always the best sushi in Arlington Heights. It is pricey if you want to buy wine/beer/etc but the sushi is priced fairly.
My daughter was visiting from out of town so we decided to try a new restaurant. Everything was wonderful however the only downside to dining at 5:30 PM is the noise level. I know this is cocktail hour But the loud rap music was overwhelming. If I could make one suggestion it would be to turn the volume down. Otherwise I would highly recommend.
Everyone from valet service, hostess, waiter, and bus staff were kind, efficient, and helpful! Suggested rolls and drinks were delicious! The ambiance was pleasantly modern!
Food was outstanding, but the service was a bit inattentive.
Shakou is one of our favorites. We dine at Shakou at least once a month.
