Me and some friends were in the mood for sushis and ended up there only to realize it is mainly a traditional Japanese Teppan-Yaki restaurant. Even though they had a selection of sushis on the menu, we all decided to order food from the grill. I tried the atlantic salmon which was well cooked and delicious and also tasted the... More

We had a wonderful time with our friends, out first time to this restaurant. Service was good and our chef was very skilled and pleasantly fun. Food was good, very fresh but I was expecting a more exotic flare. It seemed very safe and maybe too Canadianized. I probably would not return but I would compliment the food and the... More

This is one of my regular stops for supper when I am on one of my business trips to Halifax. The sushi is freshly made and the Sake is hot. In the summer I like to sit on the terrace, eat supper and people watch. Food is good and its on the waterfront.

If brown paper tablecloth & crayons describes your normal dinner out, try something new. Hamachi Steakhouse combines the sights and smells of teppanyaki cooking (Japanese style), with comedic chefs, and a touch of magic to round-out your dinning experience.

Went to Hamachi at the request of my grandson for his 12th birthday lunch. Worried that it might be stale but I was wrong. It's a friendly place with great service. Our waiter, Crystal, was fantastic: she was pleasant, informed, and very attentive especially to the needs of a young man. The food and the entertainment were as good as... More

Located on the historic Halifax waterfront, Hamachi Steakhouse is popular with locals and tourists. We made a reservation at the Teppanyaki table for a family birthday. We were seated by a friendly waitress who took our orders and continued to be attentive for the entire evening. This Teppanyaki table is communal dining- four of us sat with two other couples...

The food and the setting was very nice. The service was good but very slow due to cruise ships. The waitress was friendly and suggested the butter fish which was excellent!
