    Love Japanese food...this place doesn't serve it! Fried items weren't crispy, but soggy. Not much taste ... very pleasant surroundings and good service, but the food left much to be desired ...

    My husband & I ate at the Kamehachi in Northbrook. It was absolutely horrible. I have never been to a sushi place that charges $4 for only 1 piece of sushi. We ordered the tuna sushi and the quality of the fish was inedible. It was stringy and you couldn't chew. We had the waitress come over & she said that is how the tuna is. We had them take it off our bill. I then ordered the tempura udon. The tempura was okay but the broth was very sweet and I could not eat it the soup. The udon noodles were okay. My husband had the ramen & he said it was okay but not great. We have eaten at the Kamehachi on Wells St. in Chicago & that restaurant was fabulous. We will never go to this place ever again.

    Local Gem! Authentic preparation and fresh seafood. Restaurant was very busy so service was slow but staff was friendly and food was good. Menu is extensive so it took some time to decide. Sushi was excellent. Careful with the spicy choices. Noodle dishes are creative with crisp vegetables! Pricing was reasonable. Reservations recommended. We will be back!

    We had a birthday and brought in our own cake - our server was great about brining it out with dessert plates and silverware for us. She was also great about not pushing us to leave, as we stayed a bit late while they were closing up the restaurant. She also didn't miss a beat when we gave her three credit cards to split the bill. All in all, I'd say it was an excellent experience!

    We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. I ordered a specialty cocktail. Sadly it contained basically NO alcohol, and yet it was meant to be a martini. Sushi was just okay. It was definitely not worth the price though. However, I will say it did seem fresh. Overall it was just okay. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go again, and definitely not for such a special occasion. Staff was very friendly.

    We enjoyed our dining at Kamehachi. The staff that greeted us was helpful and friendly. Sushi was delicious. We had the Red Dragon, Ocean Drive, and Eight Volcanoes. I loved the spicy and flavors of the Ocean Drive and my lunch date said the Red Dragon was #1. Miso Soup was done just right and the green tea was a perfect accompaniment. Next time we have a few other dishes we’re planning to experience.

    Two families with wild and screaming kids were in the adjacent room and the entire restaurant was reverberating with noise. The management seemed unwilling to talk with the parents to resolve the problem. Consequently, it felt like eating Japanese food at a Chuck E Cheese. Next time, I’ll go to Bluefish instead.

    The restaurant was very accommodating for my 3 kids and the gluten free needs we have. The miso soup was good, the chicken katsu was one of the best I've had and the rolls were pretty good. The flavors just OK and presentation very nice on some of the rolls.

    We love Kamehachi. However, we had poor service. Drinks came at different times for us. The food all came together, Miso, Salad, Sushi. Not right. However, the Sushi was exquisite. We'll be back, just avoiding the one waitress.

    The spicy shrimp appetizer was delicious. Fried but so good. I think it’s the best thing I’ve had there. The udon was also good. The sea bass was not great. I would try something else next time. Had the sushi on last visits and it’s just ok. Udon and shrimp on in my list now though!! We go here because we can get a table, it’s good atmosphere and decent service, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. It’s fine.

    Kamehachi is a classic Chicago sushi house, but the facility is old and in need of renovation. The food is quite pricey for the portion size. Overall, I would choose a different place next time.......

    Arrived promptly at 6:30 PM was set in the booth. Took quite some time for a waitress to come over to take her order. Ordered the top and sake and split a bottle of beer. When the soccer game it was the wrong type and the waitress was slow to correct. At that point in time we ordered sashimi. We are particular about our sashimi and you only like certain types. The waitress took our order telling us what they had and what she recommended. About 25 minutes later she came back to tell us that one of the fish that we had ordered they no longer had in stock. While you’re not aware of what you have in stock when it comes to high end sushi IDK . When our order finally did come it was totally incorrect. Took forever for them to figure out why and when we told him we were no longer interested in having our meal there they simply gave us our check with no apology and no discount and send us on our way. As a resident of Northbrook I would never recommend nor would I ever go back to this location. It seems of it as if management simply doesn’t care and staff is aimlessly roaming around socializing and certainly not taking care of the guests.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Kamahachi. It was a group of 7 mommies - out for a friend's bday. It was the perfect evening. The food was delicious and super fresh. Every roll was tried was fantastic. The service was exceptional. They never rushed us or made us feel like we were a bother. They didn't even rush us as we closed down the restaurant. It was the perfect evening at such a great neighborhood restaurant.
