“very good sushi, chill vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013 via mobile

We came after a play at A Red Orchid theater- so we were later but appreciated the quite scene. the beautiful interior was inviting- we sat at a bar table up front so we could watch the street scene. we didn't have a full sushi dinner- just wanted a cpl rolls + a glass of wine. the sushi we enjoyed was really fresh + tasty. the service was right on... was a perfect late night snack!

“Know your (average) sushi!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

The atmosphere is calm and comfortable. Our server knew very little about the sushi. He erroneously stated that the sashimi specials were "wild caught" and the menu''s sashimi (including the tuna, etc.) was farm-raised. I asked if the fish were line-caught, responsibly, etc. and he had no idea. In this day and age, a responsible and eco-friendly sushi restaurant should educate its servers about the fish it serves. The sushi was decent, not great. The rolls were very average. Overall, I would expect more from a restaurant selling expensive sushi like Kamehachi.

“Fresh and tasty sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

We wanted a light dinner before The Second City show, and the sushi rolls at Kamehachi were perfect. Both fish and vegetarian rolls were fresh, flavorful, and presented beautifully. The service was attentive and the decor relaxing and elegant.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

Fantastic rolls, great sashimi, great seasonal dishes and good cold beer. Service was awesome. We had a blast! Definitely would go back, it's less than a block from UP theatre where we caught Second City Allstars then the Ale House pub... great night.

“Lovely presentations of excellent sushi!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

The fish was very fresh, presented on ice, so that every bite was perfect. Try the tempura banana for dessert. Overall, a ver nice evening spot!
