THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Zaidi’s Restaurant Review

: Proving you don’t have to go to the city to experience swank, sophisticated dining, this handsome room---in an easy-to-overlook strip mall---oozes class with loads of dark wood, mermaid-inspired glass partitions and black, blown-glass pendant lights that are a sight to behold. As if that’s not enough pizzazz, the small sushi bar is flanked with mesmerizing, flaming columns. We only wish the food, a Japanese-Latin hybrid, would succeed more often. We especially like the Fire Fighter maki roll, spicy tuna, jalapeños and scallions enveloped in “torched” tuna and have no quips with the impossibly tender, slow-roasted short ribs with complex Oaxacan mole. Less appealing, in no small part due to temperature inconsistencies, was the grilled (but not warm) halloumi salad with too-hot tomatoes and whirls of aged balsamic and walnut vinaigrette. A fun cocktail list (try the fruity Geisha martini with an orchid garnish) and impressive, but pricey, boutique wine list give the place a date-worthy edge.

Zaidi's is Fabulous! Recommend for Valentines Day!

While I was looking up a restaurant review I saw an ad for Valentine's Day so I thought I should note my experience from last year's Valentine's Day at Zaidi's Restaurant in Naperville. It was excellent! My wife loved everything about it. Even though they were extremely busy, our experience was excellent. The atmosphere is so romantic and the food is about the best you will find anywhere (Naperville or traveling downtown to Chicago). We are going to try to get in there again this year - I can't think of any place that will top last year's dinner/experience.
