Food: Amazing Service: Meh

I adore their food. Although it seems like this last we went they have changed the noodle texture. Everything else was as I expected it to be. Service leaves much to be desired based on the price they want you to pay for the meal. For $100 for 2 people I expected more out of our server/chef... read more

This is a nice experience with family and friends. Everything is made fresh and to your liking. Very reasonably priced. Never been disappointed. Like anywhere else, you either love it or hate it. We all loved it and the portions are plentiful.

We ate dinner at Hamada's in Tinley Park. My wife ordered a non alcoholic drink. Instead she received a alcoholic drink that made her sick enough not to finish her meal. After consulting with management, he only took the drink off and told us to file an insurance claim and go to the hospital. We will never eat at any... More

Made a reservation. Arrived and my name was not on the list. I asked management to look up who was working the day I made the reservation by providing the day and time. Asked the manager for his name--alongside another female manager. He refused, did not apologize for the inconvenience, and did not make mention that he would be happy... More

My guests from other country had a list of restaurants they wanted to try while in Chicago . One of it was Hamada. The hostess will ask you if you want sushi or hibachi. We chose hibachi. Food was good. Service was better. Cook was great. But compared to other restaurant with the same kind of food this one is... More

If you like Asian fusion or Bistro kind of food, check this place out. Nicely appointed dining room and variety of choice. Good quality.
