Went here for Valentines day! The service was a little slow due to the amount of people in the restaurant, but besides that the food was amazing and the drinks!

Delicious sushi, great service. Ordered a few of the speciality rolls recommended by our server and they were fantastic. Prices were reasonable as far as sushi goes. Will definately go back!

We were very happy with our time at Kamehachi. We felt that we slightly overpaid for the sashimi menu. However the value of everything else was outstanding. The cocktails were wonderful, the sushi rolls were as good as it gets and the shrimp tempura with the sweet and spicy glaze on a frisee bed was one the best things I may have ever eaten in my life. The service was exceptional. I highly recommend it.

The sushi was exceptionally fresh and the seaweed salad and miso soup were excellent. The soba noodles that my daughter ordered were mushy and somewhat tasteless. Our waitress was very good but she had a lot of tables.

I think of Kamehachi in Old Town as good (not great), reliable and somewhat over-priced. It's a good pre-theater choice. Service is good and prompt. The food comes out pretty quickly and you'll be out the door well in time for the show. On my most recent visit, the two specials we tried were disappointing. There were just a few pieces of grilled calamari--a poor value for $12. I didn't taste much lobster in the lobster eggroll. I got a piece of smoked salmon sushi (sake) that was disappointing as well--a much smaller piece of salmon than provided in most other sushi restaurants. The vegetable and rock shrimp tempura were fine. The real star of the meal was the Mushroom Tobanyaki, which would be very much at home in an Italian restaurant--mushrooms sauteed in garlic buttter with asiago polenta. The only Japanese note was the sake wine in the sauce. But, whatever, it's delicious and a generous portion is provided.
