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.

Whenever we want sushi and want to stay in West Seattle this is the place we go. My favorite roll is the dragon roll. Sometimes the older staff can be kind of rude, but we just ignore it.

We've been here twice, and both times were ok. Nothing great, but not horrible. We got miso soup, which was lukewarm. Then I order some sashimi (mackerel and octopus) and my wife got a spider roll. The spider roll had a lot of filler (imitation crab mixed in with a tiny soft shell). The sashimi, which is usually made of... More

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 in their preparation and presentation.

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.

Great food, great service, great night out! I'm not a regular sushi fan as I'm living in the Rockies so when it was suggested that we go out for raw fish I was apprehensive. But I thouroighly enjoyed it and will return on my next visit to West Seattle!

Kamei is our go-to sushi place and typically costs us about half what we would pay at more well-known Mashiko's.

Kamei is definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle. It is located in the "junction" neighborhood of West Seattle, about 15 minutes from downtown Seattle. The fish is always fresh, the sushi has great flavor and is wonderfully seasoned. The family that owns the restaurant are lovely people, always very gracious and friendly. We would highly recommend making your... More
