The sushi was fresh and tasty. Also ordered shrimp tempura that also came with veggie tempura. Cocktails were nicely made with unique ingredients that made them more special. Would go again when in the area and craving sushi.

My two daughters and I spend every other Saturday having a long lunch at Kamehachi. This is our favorite spot. The food is excellent, the staff are attentive and kind, and the atmosphere is inviting. I highly recommend this awesome spot for fresh sushi and shashimi. Another favorite of mind is the Chilean sea bass.

My grandson has his special brithday dinner with grandma at Kamehachi. We have done this for the past eight years.

We celebrated a birthday with six people and we had a fabulous time! The menu was really extensive with something for everyone. We savored every bite of food. I travel extensively to Asia and the food was every bit as good as what I have had overseas. My first visit even though I've lived in the neighborhood for five years. It it my new favorite!!

Kamehachi provides an extensive menu to choose from as well as interesting drink and wine list. On the Sunday we dined we were serenaded by an accomplished harpist. I ordered the salmon teriyaki and it was an entree I would order again. In our party of 5, no one complained about anything. It is a restaurant everyone should experience.

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.

We came for an early dinner before a show and ordered sushi and sashimi based on the waiters recommendation. The food all tasted terrible, as if it’d been sitting in a refrigerator for a week. We never send food back, but this was the least fresh sushi we’ve had in Chicago. When we asked for a menu to pick something non-sushi our waiter seemed upset with us and never asked what the issue was. Our appetizer, sake, and replacement food were good, but it wasn’t the most fun experience.

Best Japanese food we've had since a spring trip to Japan. Loved the choices of Japanese whiskey and the Manhattan made with Nikki Coffey was amazing. Rolls were delightful. Sashimi and tempura were top notch. Everyone enjoyed! I'd give it 5 stars, but decor and service and value were very very good, but not excellent. I'm a hard to please 5 star giver. We will be back!
