Anna's Asian Bistro

When you visit ANNA'S, you'll experience the authentic home cooking that Chef Noy and owner Anna Makmok (mother and daughter!) have enjoyed all their lives. Their inventive, expansive and affordable menu features the cuisines of Thailand, Japan, Korea, India, Laos and beyond. Start with something crispy - like Japanese stuffed avocodo or tempura, Thai chicken wings or Indian samosa. Perhaps a Japanese pork kabob or Peking duck bun is more to your liking. Saigon and Bangkok rolls, miso, Tom Yum or Mama Ginger soup plus a salad will round out your first course. For a main dish, try Mongolian steak or chicken, ginger scallops, or Laotian curry noodles. ANNA'S original sushi items are much in demand and include Chef's Signature dishes and nearly 30 varieties of makimono!


One of Chicago's 2007 AAA Five Diamond - Rated Restaurants
Venture to Thailand when you enter this legendary dining area, small and intimate with paintings of and artifacts from Thailand. No a la carte fare here. Instead, dine on sumptuous two and three-course meals. Try the ginger red snapper with lemon grass and miso. Curries are fabulous - flavors and textures galore.
The service is casual but polished.....

Benihana - Schaumburg

The story of Benihana had its roots in Japan right after the war. At that time, Yunosuke Aoki, (Yoo-OOH-No-Soo-Kay Ah-OH-Kee), a samurai descendant and a popular Japanese entertainer together with his wife Katsu (KAHT-Soo), opened a small coffee shop in Tokyo. A red safflower, found in the neighborhood streets gave the Aoki's the inspiration for the restaurant's name —Benihana— which in Japanese means "red flower."


A quote from Buddha painted in large, elegant gold script on the back wall helps set the tone for this Hyde Park restaurant with the Zen-sounding name of Chant. But the Buddhist cultural references contrast with the club music and the hard edges of metal-topped tables in the booths and the huge rough-cut steel letters spelling the name out front.
