Really enjoyed this restaurant.
Really enjoyed this restaurant. Very fresh and elegantly prepared dishes. Some of the best tempura we have ever experienced. Highly recommended....

Simply the best
My wife and I have a new favorite restaurant and this is it. We love everything about this place. The decor is very comforting and the staff makes you feel like family. We were not major fans of Japanese food until now. We have dined here at least six times and have had many items on the menu. Everything has been beyond our expectations. We will return soon.

Good food. Service was a little slow and the waiter and staff kept trying to clear our plates before we were done.

Some other sites say the service
Some other sites say the service here isn't very good. I thought it was terrific. And the food is outstanding. Go and have a good time!

Old Town Favorite
Apart from the good food, great atmosphere and the best sushi in Old Town - special thanks to the awsome manager - Ray (sp?). He alays remembers a name and will not hesitate to gpo out of his way to meet any special requests.

Foods are quite authentic.
Foods are quite authentic. They have some good choices of fishes that are uncommon to be found in other Japanese restaurants. Highly recommend those daily specials. But instead of American style entree (steak, salmon, etc), I wish they could have more wasyoku (Japanese entree)

This restaurant is located in an area with many restaurants and entertainment venues (Zanies Comedy Club and Second City) all within one block. The sushi and rolls are above average to very good. Individual sushi pieces are large and cost $3. The rolls could be bigger but they were tasty.. Avoid the spicy tuna roll because it has a tiny speck of tuna and too much rice. I would recommend ordering everything as "easy on the rice" as you will have more fish and more flavor. Do not get the special fish from New Zealand or wherever because it will cost 2 to 3 times as much as the regular salmon or tuna but will taste any better than the regular fish. I recommend customizing orders (more fish less rice). The sushi chefs are very good!

I have been going to kamahatchi
I have been going to kamahatchi for years at their former location. The food is always excellent and consistent. Upstairs was my favorite. It had a great vibe. The new location is great, the food is still Great and the new upstairs space is just as cool as the old one. Bravo kamahatchi

I love Kamehachi, great sushi spot in Old Town. The Veggie Crunch is delicious.

Try the Tuna!
The toro was divine! I highly recommend it for those who love seafood/tuna. Also - the sushi was fresh and served to perfection. Looking forward to a second visit...

What can I say: this place was awesome from the fresh dishes and good Saki to the server who was knowlegble and graceful. Kamehachi is definitly in my top two Sushi places in Chicago. The oyster and/or sea urchent shots were great starters,

I would absolutely return to this restaurant next time I visit Chicago.

The food and drinks were great. We celebrated a birthday and the night was romantic. Thank you

Very convenient to the area especially for those going to Second City down the street. It is good for a quick bite to eat and for a leisurely evening. Everything tasted so clean and flavorful.

New Kamehachi is great
It had been several years since my wife and I had been to Kamehachi, and we used to go a lot when we lived a couple of blocks away, but the old location at Wells and Schiller had gotten rather seedy and it seemed the sushi wasn't as good. The new location is much nicer, larger, and the sushi was great. Presentation was beautiful, ambiance was great and the service was excellent.

Dining at Old Town's Kamehachi
exquisite, healthy food...we were a group of four and each one of us was pleased: the steak and fingerlings--to die for. I'm not a sushi eater, but the gents loved the "wonder roll" particularly. Pot stickers, miso soup, a cold, healthful spinach dish, and the edamame were each beautifully prepared and tasty.

One of the reasons Old Town is cool
Kamehachi is consistently strong. They seem to have the best wait staff in Old Town, both knowledgeable and friendly. The food is outstanding. Don't be afraid of trying new dishes; sure the rolls are good, but they are "western". Go for some more exotic options, you won't be disappointed. ENJOY!

While definitely on the pricey end of the spectrum, the food is absolutely delicious. The selection of beers, wines, and sake are impressive as well. They even have my all time favorite beer, Hitachino Nest XH Ale, which just spoils your palette. Bring a date and spoil them!

Great food, fresh fish, huge portions for sushi. Good find!

It was decent
Not much to say about this resturant. It was decent, we did not have a bad time. The waitress was weird and forgot alot of things but, everything was accomodating. Food was decent yet, slightly overpriced. I enjoyed myself as did my friends
