I have recently eaten at two restaurants that were recommended on this board. The first one was Lee's on 54th and University...some of the best and reasonable Chinese food I have had for a long time. Even my picky husband said it was the best he had had.
The second one is Oishii, in Santee, off of Mast Ave., which has Japanese and Thai food. I had some very good sushi and salad there for lunch today. I had some cucumbers sliced in sweet rice vinegar with chopped octopus on top with a sesame seed garnish...I loved it! Thanks for the great recommendations!
