I was introduced t Hamaei by a friend a few years ago, and I have rarely had Sushi anywhere else since. When I have , it seems to pale in comparison. It is a very small room, and sometimes hard to get in, but the sushi is the freshest. A simple presentation with no goopy , mayonnaisy sauces like you... More

This is a weekly take out favourite for us! Once in a while we stray from our 'usuals' and we've enjoyed every meal. This is a very popular place and a very small space, which is why we opt to take out. Either way, the food is fabulous!

Don't let the mall scare you away. We almost missed this little gem because of it's location; crammed into a building with a pizza take out and McDonalds right next to a gas station. Fresh sushi and sashimi as well as a a good kitchen that provides interesting seasonal selections as well. Most recently we booked ahead for a 'tasting... More

A small place with tables close together. Service was very friendly and attentive. I thought that the large maki meals to share were an excellent value, at least compared to where I live in the USA. I would visit here a lot, if I lived in Vancouver.

A very small place and very busy, especially lunch time. Good quality sushi and sashimi. Not a great variety, but the fish is fresh and well prepared. Good service.

This is a small restaurant that from the time you enter to when you leave you feel like a welcomed, valued customer. The restaurant is very busy and reservations are likely a must. While the menu selection is not large, they provide a good cross section of Japanese cuisine typically food in a Sushi eatery. The food is well prepared... More

We travelled to BC for our vacation from Japan to enjoy nice food and cool climate. We enjoyed Sushi in Vancouver long time ago and would like to have the same again. We are staying at B&B in Vancouver and the owner recommended to go to this restaurant. My wife was born in northern part of Japan where lots of... More

Hamaei Sushi makes the BEST Japanese cuisine on the North Shore! The sushi is always fresh and delicious and their tempura is light and yummy. There is a great variety of menu items to choose from. We often will do take out as we have younger children so there is that option. If you can though, for the food to... More

This is a highly rated "hole in the wall" sushi restaurant. i only call it that cuz it's tiny and easily missed. the sushi here is the best i've had in the lower mainland. very fresh fish and prepared perfectly. the menu is huge with lots of interesting foods to try, both raw and cooked. great place
