I ordered delivery; which took over an hour. The fried rice was cold and almost inedible, and the crab rangoon was so tough we could barely bite through it. If we had been in the restaurant, I would have sent the food back - something I never do. Maybe it was an off day? Whatever the reason, I will not be eating from Nan's again.

It was very crowded at saturday night. We sat by sushi bar and ordered our food. we were waiting our food for awhile and saw how food was prepared. Fire dragon roll was made with fire torch. We were very amazed by flames. Taste was beyond our expectation. Highly recommend.....

Despite misgivings from previous experiences with delivery from this restaurant, I caved in to my yen for late night Chinese tonight and ordered from Nan's. They told me they would deliver in 35-40 minutes. An hour and 20 minutes later the delivery came. The pot stickers have like three times too much meat, the crab rangoon appears not to have any crab. The pineapple fried rice is dry and flavorless & the sweet an sour pork is not only too syrupy sweet but the pork is all completely overcooked. I will never order from this place again.

I am from New England which makes me very picky when it comes to seafood especially sushi. I also used to work in a fish store which makes me even more picky. I found this place through great reviews and they are dead on. I've tried out a lot of sushi here and my experiences, for the most part have been really bad, but this place is not. In fact its really great! I can't comment on the dine in experience or the chinese food because I haven't tried either. The prices may seem a bit higher here than many Chicago sushi joints the difference being that this one uses good fresh fish which is hard to come by nowadays. You know the food there is well prepared because the day after eating it you feel great which hasn't always been the case for me at other places. Enjoy this great find!

The food was great and the service was delicious. My pick-up order had everything I needed to enjoy my sushi and the free crab rangoon with a $20 order is an awesome deal.

While the Chinese food is middling, the sushi is truly fantastic. Both the original creations (the volcano maki is something to behold) to the classics, the sushi chef nails them all with ease. I've never had a bad roll here, and Nan's compares very favorably to overhyped places like Agami and Japonais. Nan's has the best sushi in the city without a doubt.

I believe I have eaten at almost every sushi restaurant in the city. Most budget places serve either tasteless or poorly prepared sushi - the House of Sushi and Noodles, Sushi Para II and Nohana are good examples. I walked past Nan's dozens of times before going in out of sheer hunger one day. I had, up to that point, avoided it because of past bad experiences eating Japanese sushi in a Chinese retaurant. But Nan's sushi is the highlight of the place. Very fresh, reasonably priced, presented without flair but on glass plates (always better than the aging wood blocks). The wasabi is soft and the ginger is light and refreshing. It's a no frills kind of place but the atmosphere is welcoming, the dining room is fairly roomy - the kind of place where you could take a long time to enjoy your meal if you preferred. All the sushi I've eaten there was tasty and fresh. The sushi chef is all too happy to make up custom rolls to your taste and even more delighted if you ask him to make something of his own creation. The Spicy Salmon roll is the best of any I've had in Chicago. The only Spicy Salmon roll I've ever had that tops Nan's is at Tomo in NYC near Columbia U. Nan's is now a regular stop for me at least 2 or 3 times weekly. Edo is the only other decently priced sushi place I like to go to as their salmon is always incredibly fresh. I have not tried any other food in Nan's but it looks good...that's about all I can really say.
