Shakou recently launched their newest location in Arlington Heights, IL and they did not disappoint!
As a long time fan of the brand, their amazing food, cocktails and trendy vibes, we were thrilled to check it out.!
You can plainly see the evolution of their style with the newest site, all of the things we love about the other locations mixed together and so much extra! From the overall layout, open window walls, patio for days and the cool, sultry glow of the decor.
As a fan, I have eaten lots from the appetizer menus and drank more than a few bottles of Whispering Angel Rose a their bar, but this was our first time enjoying their dinner menu. Can I just say that our entrees were nothing short of amazing! Not that I was surprised because no matter how many times we venture into one of the locations we always leave more than satisfied.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Shakou brand, I have included a small excerpt from there website that boasts a short list of their success; check it out:
“Shakou Restaurants landed on the Chicago suburban restaurant scene in 2013 with the opening of the original location in Libertyville. The vision behind the Shakou brand is to bring the “city vibe” to the Suburbs through trendy Modern Asian Cuisine restaurants. Each Shakou Restaurant’s atmosphere has a uniqueness of its own while staying true to the core vibe of the brand venue vision. Each location features perfectly balanced décor, stylish comfortable seating and cool colored lights bouncing off of carefully placed Asian art work accompanied by euphoric house beats subtly bumping in the background. Shakou Restaurants have been named in the Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America and in the Top 10 Chicago Asian Eateries by Open Table. Shakou Restaurants’ award winning Asian cuisine and ambiance has also be featured in various media outlets such as Forbes Magazine, Chicago Magazine, Sheridan Road, Forest & Bluff, NS Modern Luxury, Quintessential Barrington, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune, Daily Herald Readers’ Choice, Suburban Life, ABC, NBC, Fox News ,WCIU and WGN. Shakou Arlington Heights is the fifth location for the Shakou Restaurants brand; it opened in 2017.”
