Fodor's Review

It seems like there's a sushi spot on practically every corner in Chicago, but when Kamehachi opened in Old Town in 1967 it was the first, though the restaurant has since moved down the block to a loftier space complete with sushi bar, upstairs lounge, and flowering garden (in season). Quality fish, updated decor, and eager-to-please hospitality keep fans returning. Behind the busy sushi bar, chefs manage both restaurant orders and the many take-out calls from neighbors. Combination sushi meals, which include maki rolls, nigiri sushi, and miso soup, are a relative bargain, running from $19 to $34.
