We stopped in for an afternoon snack and really enjoyed our meal. My wife doesn't always like sushi but she loved Hot Woks Cool Sushi. Good service, great food and that's what it's all about.

A delicious sit-down meal for ten bucks on Michigan Avenue across from Millennium Park. Popped in at 4:00 on a Sunday and got seated right away. Had the Spicy Basil Chicken, and it was delicious. Very attentive and friendly service.
