We went to jai yen because is closed to our house....we tried different sushi chef specials and the rice with basil... The food was good, however, I wasn't to impressed by the taste of the food... The presentation of the food is wonderful, but should be back up by the taste, and unfortunately is not. The teas, I had the... More

Good spot for asian food. Some dishes were better than others. My personal favourite was the Thai red curry which was really excellent. They have an extensive sushi menu, I'm not a fan but I imagine that may tip this rating from average to very good for people who are as I think it is their main focus. Staff were... More

Jai-Yen won't top the best sushi in Chicago list, but the food is tasty and the value is great. The BYOB option makes for a reasonably priced night out. Will definitely be back soon.

Came here for lunch, the music they play is the Pandora Love station. Haha. Sushi was good, smaller dishes than other places, but the quality was good ! We also had the tom yum soup, miso, crab ragoon, and chicken teriyaki!

I have visited this restaurant several times during trips to see my son who lives in Chicago. I went by myself for lunch, and had the same dish I have had before, the Salmon Dom. If you love Salmon, this is the dish to have. The size of the Salmon pieces is Amazing! You could easily walk right by this... More

A friend and I stopped for lunch and we enjoy noodle dishes so we went with soup, noodle entrees and a green tea ice cream that was killer! Every aspect of the lunch was outstanding. The soup was rich and plentiful, not just some watered down version. Probably the best tom yum I have ever tasted. I had the Pad... More

After our arrival the restaurant filled and there were many people waiting. The service was very good even during this busy time. We had a variety of sushi and everything was delicious....some of the best sushi I have ever tasted!! I would definitely return when visiting Chicago and my son lives in Chicago and says he will be back often!... More

Well we were up in town and decided to meet up with a friend here, she had frequently ordered delivery but never ate inside. We were greeted with an unpleasant odor, rather like open sewer. But as we had smelled similar wafting from the city grates throughout our day I decided that maybe it was related and pressed on. We... More
