Kamei Royale Downtown
Established in 1976, Kamei Royale was the first Japanese restaurant to introduce the now famous BC Roll and various original sushi dishes found in Vancouver. Presenting the largest counter-top sushi bar and an exhilarating Robata grill showcasing the chef's skills.
Kamei Royale has renovated and renewed itself again in 1990. Bringing forth a brand new bar lounge and Tatami rooms the massive floor space can easily accommodate up to 200 tour groups. Also, with the karaoke lounge now bustling, everyone can enjoy our popular drinks and dishes while singing away to the latest songs ranging from every corner of the planet!
It was awesome as always. Love this place and the people who are genuine. Also the food is incredible! Just wish we lived closer
The staff was very friendly. We found the food took quite awhile with our meals arriving at least 20 mins apart. The blossom roll was apparently very good. My California roll lacked any flavor. The spicy salmon roll was ok.
My son’s meal wasn’t even close to the picture and quite rubbery(squid?).
Try the happy hour menu, amazing!
Great food and great service. Nice design. Good place for a date or nice dinner.
Great food menu. Great service. Staff are authentic.
The waygu beef is worth trying.
BUT drinks are over-priced.
The house red and white wines need to get upgraded to better quality. And how can a Japanese restaurant run out of a common saki ?!
As always a memorable, perfect dinner, the sashimi is the best anywhere, period!
We are regulars, at least once a month. The food is always first rate and the staff could not be better. In fact we have become good friends. They have my vote.
Excellent food and excellent service!!!!
Nice and quiet ambiance but thats maybe because it was a Monday night.
Excellent dinner!Great service!Rolls were super fresh!
We are regulars there, need I say more, it's our go to for sushi. The food, the great staff, the attention to detail always combine for fine experience.
Best sushi in Vancouver, freshest sashimi anywhere.
very polite and attentive service. food always fresh - good value
Wonderful dinner, the freshest sashimi in the entire city, this place never disappoints!
We enjoyed the chef recommended lobster rolls and cuttlefish fish. Delicious.
The short ribs appetizer were a little chewy, other than that, it was very good. I will come back again soon
Food is always great at Kamei.
Service was a bit below outstanding.
It was amazing! Had a date with my best friend and the meal was delicious. Inexpensive and a great place to network and connect with clients over dinner.
Best Japanese restaurant I know! Lobster sashimi, when available, is a must!
Always a great experience at Kamei and delicious food too
Went with our 2 sons for a family dinner. They are adhering to Covid -19 rules so we felt safe and had a very nice evening.
Delicious food; I loved it, the sushi with fire is the best
You have been to a lot of Japanese restaurants. Kamei Royale is my favourite. Fish is if high quality and very fresh. Lobster Sashimi dish is excellent. Staff is friendly and service is excellent. I highly recommend this place.
Among the best Japanese food in BC. My favorite for fact. Good variety of original food, not a sushi bar. Large Sake menu. My top recommendation.
Service was very good. Double Dragon, Crunch and Munch and Real Crab California roll was very tasty and fresh. Although we never order dessert in Sushi restaurant, we tried the Tempura Ice Cream and it was very good. I would order it again.
Price was a bit higher than some other sushi places, but very fresh.
Sushi was just okay. Spicy tuna rolls were very different from the usual. The tuna wasn’t spicy at all and had no sauce on the fish but there was some kind of sauce poured over the individual pieces. I found it strange. Tempura wasn’t hot just warm. Best was the salad although the portions were so huge they could have been eaten as a separate meal.
Epically excellent service. Food was fabulous, exactly as lavished in other reviews. A return visit is definite.
The chicken Karaage is the best I have ever tasted in forty years. The sushi was very tasty. The agedashi tofu made in a very traditional way.
My friend and I enjoyed our evening and will come again sometime later this year.
I recommend the restaurant!
So good, we ate there two days in a row. Creative menu with many original dishes and beautifully presented. The saki tasting menu can't be beat. And, the prices are more than reasonable. Jun is a terrific waiter.
Kamei Royale delivers excellent dinner and selection. as always.
Food is good. Service is sincere. The price on happy hour is attractive.
Went for my birthday and I loved it. Will go again for sure.
Huge selection of choices, food quality is superb, service is excellent. We had Crystal twice within a week, she is pleasant, courteous, patient and service with a smile.
The only small complaint is that the green tea is weak. As the tea is not complimentary, customers expect better tea.
Food was scrumptious and the service excellent. Definitely recommended. Sushi was off the chart and cuts of fish delicious. If you like seafood this is your spot.
I went to Kamei's old location what feels like hundreds of times over the course of more than a decade. It was always great fun and good value. I will just say that I am glad they are still around.... and we were able to get a reservation at the last minute for NYE.
The food was good and tasted fresh. The service was good. Staff were very attentive even though it was busy.
We loved the service and food, and the prices are reasonable. The booths are very comfortable and the wait staff was super nice.
The place is cluttered and noisy. Service is friendly however the food was very average. Sashimi plate was not fresh and wasabi salty and gritty overall poor presentation and disappointing.
Great food, great price. Authentic Japanese restaurant in the heart of Vancouver!
