We recently ate dinner at Kamei Baru and were very happy with the food and service. The restaurant seems to carry on the Kamei Sushi quality but is incorporating some of the "izakaya" (Japanese Tapas) style.
We ate four dishes between two people and felt it was an appropriate amount of food but really big eaters may want a couple more dishes.
We shared the mussels prepared in a white wine sauce. The mussels were superb, perfectly cooked. We also tried the deep fried oyster roll which was really awesome. The sauce is a mixture of mayo and Tonkatsu sauce that is awesome. We also had the Agedashi Tofu and Calamari which has a spicy kick and is a great twist on the original dish.
The prices per dish were very comparable to other high end izakaya restaurants in Vancouver and we felt the prices were close to fair, maybe a little high but ultimately the food is prepared very well and there are some variations on dishes that we enjoyed.
The staff were very friendly and proficient and I liked the large televisions showing sports highlights but others may find it distracting.
All in all we'll definitely go back and eat at Kamei Baru again.
