Diner Reviews
  • "We go to Kamehachi every time we attend the fabulous A Red Orchid Theatre right next door (FREE parking on LaSalle after 6 p.m., folks!) and, once again, had a great meal. We tried new things there this time - Go-Mae - a fave of ours from other sushi restaurants - and this was really lovely, beautifully formed spinach - a nice "log", cut on diagonal & covered with a great sesame sauce. NOT too much, not too little. Also tried "rock shrimp tempura" - what a nice treat. Too often, tempura can be overly greasy or bready on ginonormous hunks of veggies, etc. ... this was almost a "popcorn shrimp" treatment - very manageable bowl (app. portion), NOT greasy and tossed in a wonderful sweet chili sauce. & Maki - & Sapporo! YES! GREAT server!"

  • "Wonderful sushi and great service provided a terrific start before a fun night of improv at Second City. The dragon roll and Chicago crazy rolls were especially note worthy."

  • "Foods such as high end blue fin tuna and kanpachi was way under my expectation. Server was too busy to care for too many diners per person. I may not go again."

  • "Needed a place to feed my brother and nephew before my nephew hit the stage at Zanies across the street. Location couldn't be better and the dinning room is beautiful. The service is a little slow for a quick pre show but it is a nice place to linger. Food is very good. I eat allot of Japanese and this was not the best I've had but we were all impressed with the presentation and the deliciousness. Udon noodles with shrimp excellent. Great gomae. Yummy miso and edame very good chicken teriyaki, katsu a little dry. Had two sushi rolls can't remember the names but beautiful and tastey. This was my second time there and I would definitely go back"

  • "Me and a buddy came here for dinner before a birthday party at Corcoran's down the street. Typical sushi and appetizer options, but ambience and service were great. Seating wasn't cramped and didn't have to yell to have a conversation. I would go here again if im in the area."

  • "We've been to Kamehachi before, but not since closing the original location. We decided to give the Wells Street location a try. The food very good as always! The salmon was excellent, and I would cross a busy highway for more of the asparagus beef rolls. The service needs some work though. I had to ask for silverware twice. Getting a drink refill was not easy (we had to ask several times). The server forgot to bring out the wine order. And she forgot one of the appetizers. It wasn't that busy, so I'm not sure if she was new just not good at being a server. Despite the service, I would probably go back."

  • "I went with a friend on a Saturday night at 8 p.m. and it was not crowded. I was easily able to make a reservation an hour before we planned on dining. Because of that I was a little worried, but the food turned out great. We both really enjoyed our rolls and thought the fish all seemed very fresh. We were seated upstairs and it was very quiet and empty. I think I would have preferred to be seated on the main floor. The prices were decent, and I'd come back again."

  • "I wanted to surprise the guy I am dating for his Birthday. He is really into Japanese culture. I heard about the restaurant on line through the Sites you have to visit in Chicago page. The place was wonderful. Very comfortable, great music, yet very intimate. The service was great. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about certain foods. When she found out it was his birthday, she brought out Green Tea ice cream with a candle. He was really excited. The food was excellent!!! I had the Spicy Shrimp Tempura! Delicious, and we both tried the happy bride Sake. This is a great place to meet with friends of go on a romantic date. I love it and we plan to visit again soon!"

  • "Loved the decor and breakup of the front bar/cafe seating and back dining room areas. Miso soup comes out quickly - always important! Recommend the Hachi ceviche -unique and delicious and Summer roll. Our table ordered a few other rolls which were all good and a few items of the daily specials which were great."
