Having eaten at Hamada of Japan in Tinley Park on several family occasions, I was quite distressed to see a flood of poor reviews on the service. I am not disputing the observations of others, but I am happy to say we gave them a chance tonight and the service was excellent as was the food. Attentive, polite, nice receptionist,... More

We had dinner here to celebrate two family members' birthdays. The food was delicious and PLENTIFUL! We all took some home. The chefs cook at the table and it was thoroughly entertaining! We spent about $35 per person, not including the tip. Fun for all ages! My only complaint was minor--they don't give you knives, just forks.

We came in a large group for a grand niece's graduation celebration & we filled a large table around a hibachi grill. The restaurant is big & was filled, doing great business... Lots of delicious food & all cooked by a performing chef on the grill. We ordered the large combinations & had too much food (didn't realize you could... More

I really like this restaurant. I usually go at lunch time. The prices are lower and you still get the entertainment at the table. I like sharing a table with strangers, most are very friendly. My only complaint is not really a complaint. The portions are huge. I usually take home enough for two or three more meals.

This place has a great ambiance. The dinner is served Japanese Hibachi Style so if you don't want to sit with people you don't know don't go here. The drinks are good. It is clean, the food is fresh, and the cook puts on a show to entertain you. I saw a family that wanted a table by themselves but... More

We ate in the sushi bar, rather than the restaurant. It was quiet and cozy. The selection of sushi was large. The sushi itself tasted great. All of the ingredients tasted fresh. The prices were about what I would expect for sushi - not cheap, but not terribly expensive.

Foods not bad but all they want to do is seat you, fill the table and rush you out of there to turn the table again! Forget ordering an appetizer you'll get it in the middle of your meal, has happened several times to me and I send it back. They are bringing you to go boxes and checks before... More

The black community needs to rise up and take their money elsewhere!!! I've never had to wait for the rest of my guests to be seated and then lose my reservation! The hosts were very rude when we asked why we couldn't be seated. I've heard the stereotype of the Japanese people thinking their superior to Americans, This restaurant certainly... More

Hamada has a great selection of entrees to be cooked Japanese style right in front of you. The chicken and steak are awesome along with the onion soup. It's very cozy inside and great service. Just be prepared to wait if you go on the weekend.
