    Although the place looked very busy on Friday night, we did not find the food tasty. Service and ambiance are very good, but it doesn't change the taste.

    We were disappointed in the food. We ordered 4 sushi rolls, most which were designated as "spicy" and they were all bland and lacked flavor. The Ramen soup was a generous serving (served 3 people easily) and was ok. There are better sushi places in the area and I would not go back to Kamehachi.

    If you are looking for sushi in the suburbs, Kamehachi is a fair choice. They have an ok selection, but didn't have some of the items I usually like to have (no uni on the Saturday night I was there). The nigiri rice quality was not very good, and it fell apart too easily if you would ask me. I would say that there are better choices for sushi even in the suburbs. If there was a bright spot I thought that the service was good and there are many other menu choices for those who want something different.

    The food at this restaurant was excellent. Unfortunately the service was very slow. Some of the appetizers arrived promptly. However,we had to wait at least 30 minutes for the main course. The worst part was that the sushi appetizers arrived just after the main course. While the decor was quite nice the room was very noisy.

    Found this spot on groupon. It was great for a short notice spot. Tables are kinda close together, so close that you can reach out and eat of the next person's plate. Forget about table conversation, the whole place could hear your conversation. But the food was sushi was good. they even had soy paper for those of you who don't like seaweed.

    Kudos to the manager that night we were there. He could not have been nicer and was very accommodating. Unfortunately, the server we had was new and I'm wondering if she had ever served in a restaurant before. She was clueless about the drink menu, brought me the wrong order....twice and simply couldn't function even though the place was maybe half full. We had great expectations but ended up with a miserable experience.

    I have been a can of kamehachis for some time particularly the on on Well Street. I was hoping for some of the same experience but this one I have to say was rather disappointing. Portions especially for their sashimi was very sad for the price you pay. Flavor is not the issue. Value for your money seems to have deteriorated

    I'm no sushi expert so there are more qualified reviewers than me to comment on their sushi specifically but I think Kamehachi is a solid option for Japanese dining. We like their Maki rolls and rock shrimp appetizer in particular. Maybe not as trendy as most nearby sushi restaurants but a quiet, pleadant and solid nearby dining option in our view.

    Kamehachi consistently provides great sushi, offering the classics and unusual rolls, while also catering to any special requests you may have. Addressing those requests is just one example of the amazing service we receive there. Usa always treats us like family when we eat there, and Peter and the other members of the staff are great as well. Definitely the best sushi place in the northshore.
