“Very good Japanese restaurant in Northbrook”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Kamehachi in Northbrook is an excellent Japanese restaurant. The menu is quite broad, with a good selection of sushi and sashimi, as well as a nice variety of cooked dishes. There are some very imaginative sushi rolls, and the fish is always fresh. The soft-shell crab appetizer is particularly outstanding. Service is warm and friendly, but a bit disorganized and sometimes slow. The atmosphere is very pleasant, though I could do without the background music (are there any restaurants left that cherish silence?). It is rare to find a Japanese restaurant of this quality in suburbia.

“My Favorite Sushi Restaurant in the Whole World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

OK - this reviewer has not been to Japan. I have, however, eaten sushi all over the Chicago Area, the US, England and Australia and Kamehachi Northshore is a destination sushi restaurant for me. Their Green Turtle roll is unique and superb. The sushi boat is amazing for large groups. The sushi chefs are creative and still deliver the traditional fare exceptionally well. And if Peter serves your table, you are a very well served customer.

“Always Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Fresh Sushi every time and the kids love going there. Service is okay, but food is worth it. Nice to follow up with Baskin and Robbins around the corner

“Very Good Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We enjoyed Kamehachi. We ordered several different rolls to share and liked them all. The Wonderful Roll really stood out and lived up to its name. I also had a Lemongrass cocktail that was out of the ordinary and very good. Our server was friendly and helpful, and the food came to the table in a very reasonable amount of time.

“Inventive Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

They had some different kinds of sushi rolls where they layered it instead of rolling...I loved the flavors and the concept, but they had a LOT of rice in them. The regular sushi was great and so were the noodle dishes!
