Got the omakase. We’ve had much better omakase for much lower price (e.g. Tanoshii). The beef felt like it was cooked days ago. The sushi (sashimi, nigiri, maki) were good, maybe stick to those. Overall will try again but not the omakase next time as it’s not worth the amount we paid at all.

Ate outside on the sidewalk. Delicious chef choices for nigiri and sushi. The tuna appetizer and tempura were great as well.

Service was slow . We didnt see a busser ever so dirty plates sat til our sushi came. We used to go to the one on Ontario for years and this one in its original location. We haven't been here for over a year and unfortunately there was nothing about our night that would make me not want to give another place a try instead. O made the reservation a week out for my son's birthday there was no mention of that. Th ere nvyhey put us in the very back of the resturant . Just very disappointing all around.

We sat on Wells Street so the neighborhood experience was nice. Lots of good people watching and plenty of fun dogs out for walks. The service was OK, and our server was especially nice in letting us take our time in ordering. That was appreciated. The Mai Tai's we had were - ugh - not good unless you enjoy strong pours of grenadine - we don't. The meal itself was fine. It's a fine neighborhood place, we will be back, and will be smarter on our drink orders.

Rich was our server and he was awesome! He was on point with service and menu knowledge. You must get the spicy calamari as an app! It’s kind of like bang bang shrimp but with calamari.

This is a gem restaurant in Old Town. Great, very diverse menu, excellent service. I have been coming here for many years, and has never disappointed. If you look for Japanese cuisine in Chicago, this is the place. Prices are reasonable, and the rooms are quiet, good for conversations.

This place is notoriously slow with service even when there is hardly anyone in the restaurant.

If this was not the only decent sushi in my area I would not go there.

Their prices are also high.

We were a party of 5 and were happy to be seated in the back of the restaurant, where it was quieter. This was not our first visit to Kamehachi, but it had certainly been at least a year for all of us. But Kamehachi did not disappoint! We tried some new sushi delicacies and were impressed by both the quality and inventiveness. It's a friendly place with very good service -- especially considering how busy it was on a Friday night. Recommend Kamehachi without hesitation!

Kamahachi is a local favorite for Japanese food. It has an extensive menu, the food is always fresh, and the service is impeccable. It is a nicely appointed space, suitable for quiet conversation. I have been there many times over the years, and the quality and experience has been consistently excellent. It is also affordable.

We started off with the Gyoza, then we had the Kamasu Ichiyaboshi and Kanpachi. For entrees Laura had the Kamehachi salad, and I had the Yaki Udon. All were excellent, and served in a timely manner.

The last time we went we had the omakase, or at least their version of it and the sushi wasn’t bad! This time we had the normal menu items and the hamachi carpaccio was tough and cut too thick, the Rock shrimp was not crisp and the shrimp was tiny, and the Spicy Tuna Deluxe Deluxe was like eating a roll made out of baby food! I’m just hoping Monday night is just not the night to go to Kamehachi on Wells! You can do better!
