This cute South Loop spot is part slick, part casual, with soothing bamboo-decked green walls and a staff that’s eager to please. Jump around the massive, multicultural menu and you’ll find great dishes across the board, from Chinese soup dumplings to ponzu-drizzled sashimi to Vietnamese-style grilled lemongrass beef. Skip the curries, but generous sushi cuts are tasty and the signature duck soup is a standout.
