Hadn't been to Hamaei in a few years after several good experiences in the past. Never minded the cramped and odd quarters in the past as the food and service were always good. Visited last week and was most disappointed. I noticed Atlantic salmon on most dishes.... cat food in other words. When I ordered the Hama assorted sushi, I... More

We like going out for dinner most Friday nights - it's our date night and has been for over 5 years now. It's either Sushi or Italian or Pho - but mostly sushi at Hamaei especially if it was pay day. Yes, there are cheaper places but not as nice with sushi chefs who just cut fresh fish - simple,... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch and really enjoyed the sashimi and tempura bento box. Service is always good and food is always great.

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.
