Finally. LEGIT banh mi close to home. Top 3 banh mi I've had in the lower 48. Owners are super nice, and are great about explaining the sandwiches and their ingredients. Awesome flavor. I will be ordering again. And again. And again.

I get the Tom kha soup and chicken pad Thai pretty much every time and they are AWESOME. Highly recommend both. The best delivery Thai I've had in Chicago by far. Only knock is delivery...seems to take at least an hour every time.

It's the best Chinese restaurants in Chicago. It used to be on Wells for years then the owner decided to take some time off. It's still in old town but now on LaSalle. Best Kung Pao, hot and sour soup and crab rangoons I've ever had.
My friends are all hooked on it now.

Very fresh and good value. I am a sushi rookie, and loved the Flaming VIP Roll. It was topped with crunchy bonito flakes (think texture of fried onion strings) and included cooked salmon. I highly recommended this entrée for those less adventurous sushi-goers. My wife, the sushi pro, loved the sashimi platter (11 pieces). We also shared a Chicago Fire roll. I wish the menu description included "seaweed wrapped" or maki style. The rice within was well-cooked, and had the perfect texture. We both like spicy food, and the jalepano sauce was merely a light flavor adder, so don't expect a great deal of heat, despite the name.
This was our third delivery from from Kai, so I can now vouch for the consistent quality. We don't like to review without a decent sample size. Each time, the order arrived in timely manner.
The only reason this was not 5-stars was due to the way food was packed into the bag. Twice, our orders have included a cucumber salad. Both times, the rice vinegar has spilled inside the delivery bag, resulting in wet/stained napkins and chop sticks. Changing the container, or wrapping in Saran Wrap would be an easy fix.
Kai was a great choice for us, and will stay on our favorites list. I look forward to trying more Special Rolls. Having pictures of menu items would be another great improvement for the site/app.
