“Pay your money, take your chances”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

We were excited to be told about Kamamechi seeing it was in our part of the city. We have gone to or used take-out from this restaurant a number if time. The problem is, it is so hit and miss. One time the food will be great, the next time, they will be out of something like tuna or avocado. Imagine your sushi with a piece of apple being used to replace the avocado -- yep, it just doesn't work. And how does a sushi restaurant not have tuna???

We have given Kamamechi a number of chances (including ordering from TSB -- The Sports Bar which is attached) and they have continued to disappoint. We just don't go anymore.

As I said: you pay your money and then you take your chances.

“Average Japanese food in a convenient location”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

The best thing about Kamameshi is the location. It's the only place in Karachi to get Japanese food without having to run a gauntlet of security blockades and barriers (e.g. Sakura at the PC Hotel, or Fujiyama at the Avari Towers Hotel).

Sushi is average at best--maki rolls and rice are mealy. The sashimi and tempura etc. are fairly good though. Overpriced for what it is, but in a state of limited options, something's better than nothing.
