They've moved to 1066 W. Hastings now - I just went for lunch and it was a fabulous experience! Fast service, lovely food. Best ginger I've ever had, and the sushi rolls were very good. Interesting items on the menu too. A bit pricey, but not too bad compared to other lunches downtown.

The food at Kamei Royal has been excellent for as long as I can remember, going back 25 years. I think the reason is the chefs and host/hostesses are all Japanese and maintain the high quality standards of Japanese tradition.

My favourite place to go for Japanese food is the Kamei Royal. It is in the heart of downtown Vancouver and is upstairs across from the Fairmont Hotel. They have a very extensive menu. They close at 2:00 pm after lunch and then open later for dinner. You can sit at the sushi bar, take a room or tables.

Take your time to savour the delights of this restaurant. Excellent range of sushi and sashami dishes obviously preferred by the local asian population. Saturday night was nearly full with a good atmosphere. Certainly recommended.

This is a very top rated restaurant with amazing food for the experienced palate I was taken here by some people who were situated abroad and always come here when they visit Vancouver. Some very exotic dishes and very fresh. It is centrally located .

It's not that it was not delicious it's just that it was kind of expensive for food. But atmosphere and seivece was satisfying.

Great for casual lunch or dinner. Parts of the restaurant are very quaint (i.e. booths by the windows). Others feel rather common. I have always loved the food here and the atmosphere. Attentive staff. Well priced large servings.

This is a very well known sushi spot in downtown Vancouver - popular with the downtown working crowd as well as those that come downtown for food. It's upstairs and quite authentic feeling with lots of small little rooms where you remove your shoes and have authentic-feeling Japanese service. Many of the servers are Japanese as are the sushi chefs.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
