The Pork Belly Ramen was amazing! It was a perfect meal on a cold winter night. The Sesame cake was brand new on the menu and should be a keeper - was delightful!

Very good service, wonderfully designed space in avondale. We have known about yusho for many years and decided to try it. Food is very good. Some ramen shops are more authentic but this place is worth a second visit when we are in the area.

Had dinner at Yusho with a couple friends... its a nice restaurant but not in the best of location (i mean if you dont know where it is you will miss it) and from the outside looking in it doesnt give you the idea its an actual restaurant.
At first our server was a little uptight but after a few minutes we were all friends.
We had a selection of mostly all the menu items and they were all great. Service is quick and efficient and the were always willing to help.
One of my biggest criticism is, the only server that really focusses on you is the one assigned to your table, the others would hardly look at you and that needs to be addressed.

Diners Club/Pellegrino named this place one of six restaurants in America as the future generation of dining. They were spot on. We had 15 or so dishes from the menu and none was a disappontment. The steam buns were the highlight for me but the ramens were complex and packed with flavor also. I'd give the food a 4-4.5 but the service put this place over the top to a full 5. Emily was amazing. As far as casual service goes, it was probably the best I've ever had. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive and even did small things like bring us a small plate of a dish component when I mentioned how much I liked it. Prices are accessible for any budget too. Could easily have a filling meal for two on $30 or $40 there if you wanted. The genever and rhubarb cocktail was refreshingly tart and delicious. They make their own tonic to mix with gin which is a unique touch. Definitely tasty but just a hair on the sweet side for me so I only had two or three :-). I will definitely seek out on future trips to Chicago. It was a great experience.

Stopped by for a quick snack on a couple's night out. Nice ambiance. Good, attentive service. We ordered the pepper tempura ($7) and the salmon belly tempura ($10). Both were nicely battered. The salmon tempura were on the oily side. Both came with a spicy mayo aioli sauce. They had other items on the menu which were an interesting combination/fusion such as jerk chicken ramen and buns (bao). We would try next time we're in town.

We also split a rose lemonade ($5), which was interesting; had a mild citrus taste with a touch of rose extract. The drink had ginger in it, but could not taste the ginger. Total bill $24.
