 (Chicago)·Dined 2 days ago

We went there for my son’s birthday. We made a reservation in advance but we had to wait literally 50 minutes before a server came to our table! Only after I told the hostess that we wanted to speak to the manager. Manager then came and we told him how long we had been waiting (we would have left if our kids were not dying from hunger. We had three kids with us ages 4, 11 and 13). He said someone would be with us shortly and also said “let me see if I can get you free appetizers”. After that, it took another forever for the appetizers to come and then the main courses. Food was mediocre. When the check came, we realized that we’re charged for the appetizers unlike what the manager said (who by the way looked 18 years old, very inexperienced looking young man...) We didn’t want to talk to them again, we paid the bill vowing that we would never return there anyway.
One of the worst experiences we have ever had at a restaurant and it was most unfortunate that it was my son’s 13th birthday.

The food here is always good. I started going to Kamehachi when they were in Chicago (from what I understand they were the first Sushi place in the city). It has gotten very pricey but still very good. We were concerned about our orders (we ordered A LOT!) as our server appeared to not understand us most of the time. Nor could she speak English very well, if at all. To our pleasant surprise absolutely everything come out perfectly. We tipped her accordingly. So, go if you like good sushi and don't mind paying top dollar.

The food was good and the waitress did her best considering the circumstance that the chefs were far behind on orders and so it took forever to get our food. Bad timing when we needed a quick small meal and needed to be on our way. They offered an appetizer of edamame but we don't eat that so that didn't help. I would usually overlook the situation and be understanding because it was a Saturday night, but the place was not even 1/4 full with many open tables. Perhaps they were overloaded with delivery or carryout? Perhaps they were short of chefs? Not sure but it was a disappointment.

There are many Sushi restaurants on the North Shore. This is one of the best.
All the sushi is great.
The Cooked food is great too.
Something for everyone, sushi and non-sushi people.

Thank heavens the noise level was good for talking. The food was excellent and the quantities were large prices not so large. It's seem to authentic which I think was indicated by the fact that there were many Asian people eating in this restaurant which was Asian's cuisine

Always love bringing our little ones here. Food and service is outstanding. My girls love the salmon sushi and meat sticks. Today they treated our birthday girl with an amazing lava cake to top off her special day. Kamehachi never disappoints!

The sushi was fresh and good, but not as interesting or flavorful as in the past. They no longer serve the little dish of seaweed as an opener to all guests. We ordered edamame, but it was never brought (they did not charge us for it).

My wife and I had a great late night dinner. Service was polite and excellent. We had spring rolls as an appetizer then a mixture of sushi with beer to wash it down. Very tasty and beautifully plated. One of the best Asian restaurants in the area.

I think the rice was old. I've had better sushi from the grocery store. The rolls were small, and the prices were average, but I'd expect larger rolls. Do yourself a favor and don't go there. The restaurant was almost completely empty, which should have been a sign to begin with.

It was a little slow on getting our food out. But our server let us know what was going on that the kitchen was a little backed up. Over all it was all good. We frequent this place because I love sushi and I always enjoyed dinning here even though my husband does not like sushi. He always gets the beef asparagus roll and he is happy.

I've eaten at Kamehachi several times and the food was predictably very good. I ordered one of their special Mojitos, however, and was disappointed - good taste, but so small and very little alcohol in it. All ice. The children's Chicken Teryaki was generous and more than worth the $7. My Tempura was delicious, as were the Beef and Asparagus Rolls. The server took our order in a reasonable amount of time, but the delivery was very delayed, both drink and food. The restaurant was not crowded at the time. So it was a mixed bag. I will go back. I will recommend it. Just not if you're in a hurry!

Tables and Sushi bar were dirty when we were seated. Left over tempura crumbs and rice were on the table. The place also smelled of fish (not real fresh) . The sashimi was both tasty and prepared well, but other items were mediocre at best.

Lots of better choices for sushi
