We had the Sushi-Tempua-Teriyaki Bentos as takeout today. They were bad. The tempura was very greasy. The teriyaki chicken swimming in a cream sauce on a bed of wilted vegetables. All food tasted pretty bland. Not a lot of flavor, very greasy, the rest soggy...More

Anytime I want Japanese food you will find me here. The food and service are excellent!! Their varied menu allows you to choose anything but their sushi and sashimi plate can't be beat.

The sushi is excellent and always fresh, and Kamei also has many other Japanese dishes we love; tonkatsu, kara-age, gyoza, edamame, agedashitofu, tempura, tsukemono, sashimi, miso soup, etc. Even when the restaurant is crowded, the service is great, and the chefs obviously take great pride...More

We ate at Kamei in West Seattle on California Street. Recommended by a family member, this restaurant did not disappoint. The sushi, seaweed salad, teriyaki, tempura, everything was fresh and delicious. I can't wait to go back there again on my next trip.
