My first time, and my last time going there for Dim Sum
Submitted Sunday, March 21, 2010 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

I went there because my mom's friend lives near there and said their food was very good. So we went there on a Saturday, less than half the number of seats there were occupied. Usually, when we go for Dim Sum at a very good location, there would have been all filled up by 11am or noon.

So we went there and sat down to eat. The price of the Dim Sum is fairly high when compared with other chinese restaurants on the East Side of Vancouver. Their price of dim sum is almost as expensive as Sun Sui Wah on Main. Their Dim Sum is ok in porportion with the prices that customers pay.

As for the service, it was terrible. The day that we went, there was obviously not a lot of customers. Somehow the servers were busy doing nothing. But when we asked for refill for tea, our teapot hasn't come back until like half an hour later. And that was because we went to look for our teapot too! When we asked one of the female servers, she glared at us with big eyes and gave us a " what do you want" attitude. After we asked where our teapot was, she went back into doing her own stuff. So we got up on our feet and went looking for something that should be given to us by the servers.

The restaurant has renovated to give customers a fresh feeling. They have spent an extravagant amount of money into renovating it by the looks of the restaurant. They had several LCD TVs placed around the restaurant.In addition, they had what seemed like swarovski crystal lightings with little crystals dangling from the lightings.

I personally would not go there again for Dim Sum. I've had better experience elsewhere and would not recommend friends to eat there. I'd rather eat at King's chinese cuisine on Main and 29th.

Kamiya Japanese Restaurant345 Robson Street, #202, Vancouver
Cheap price, Much less in quality and quantity
Submitted Friday, February 26, 2010 - 6:55pm [Dine in]

I've went there because it was closest to the Central Library. I regret not walking further to have my lunch at ebi-ten instead.

I ordered a combo of $5.99 with udon and sushi. The udon's bowl is large, but the udon & the food is less than half of the bowl. The food is extremely salty, so I was lucky to have bought a water bottle that day. The udon is less than half the package you get from superstore, and its about $0.49/one package.

As for the california rolls, it looks like a big roll from the top, but if you turn it around, the bottom looks like a direct opposite. From the bottom, you can hardly see any fillings than when you look at it from the top. There are not a lot of avocado, but there are traces of it.

I am not sure if this location provides authentic japanese food since most employees speaks korean....
Sushi originates from Japan, so its to you to decide.

Its definitely not expensive, but the food is absolutely less that what you would see from the picture posted outside the restaurant. As for the quality, there are large rooms for improvement, at least portion-wise.

Good food & Friendly services.
Submitted Friday, February 26, 2010 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

The food is absolutely authentic. The whole kitchen is run by Japanese employees. I have ordered a 6 California rolls with shrimp tempera and teriyaki chicken. The California rolls had a larger portion of avocado.I personally think that more avocado means they care about providing the best food to customers. Some places offer cucumber as a substitution, which I find those California rolls to be very fake. The shrimp tempera has yellow crispy outer skin ( uses fresh oil). Their shrimp is very fresh, which is determined by the sweet taste. The teriyaki chicken is very delicious. The only thing missing is a bowl of rice :)

The service is very efficient. After ordering, it takes about 5-7 minutes to get my order. There is always seats available because people are very quick at eating and leaving.

Considering its located in the downtown area, the price is pretty reasonable.$10 with food and drinks. It doesn't look like there's a lot of food from the combo selections, but I just couldn't finish it. The food is very filling.

I highly recommend to those who wishes to try the authentic Japanese food!

Food Portions have changed
Submitted Friday, February 26, 2010 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

They used to offer 50% rice with 50% dishes ( 2 choices). Now its over fifty percent rice with about 10% dish. In addition, most dishes with fish or meat requires customers to pay a dollar extra. In turn, the original price of $4.50 with two dishes is becoming more and more expensive.

Since this location is female-dominated kitchen, most female customers tends to get less dish portions than male customers. The service from these female waitresses is less than satisfactory. When I went today, they don't greet customers. Instead, they tend to stand around talking to their co-workers. When we asked questions, it seems like they were replying in their head. I can hardly hear their voice. I had to look at their lips to guess what she was saying. Overall, the service was pretty bad.

Their food was average. The dishes had very strong taste. I had to buy a large coke from the neighbouring Mcdonalds so I don't get super thirsty after. Their rice is harder than ones provided in chinese restaurants. The strong taste gives customers an illusion of tasty food.

Last year when I went, they had very good services. They greeted customers will smiles on their faces. They carry a very enjoyable conversation with customers. They had more traditional family taste in their food.

Stalking Waiters!!
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 6:15pm [Dine in]

My mom and I, along with mom's relatives went to the restaurant to have dim sum after sunday service, and we came across this restaurant. The waitresses and waiters looked at us like we were not "elegent" enough to have lunch there. I mean, your restaurant is on kingaway & king edward, you shouldn't expect high class people to be having lunch there. Anyhow, after we had lunch, we gave reasonable tips for the awful service provided there. As we were walking to our car, the waiter followed us and stopped at the front door. He wanted to see what CAR WE WERE DRIVING! I mean, that's stalking! I don't get why this restaurant hasn't closed down yet, its bad service, fair food, and stalking waitors! I've never been to a dim sum place with these ridiculous people! I am NOT going there AGAIN!

Bad, Bad service is the worse it can get..
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 6:01pm [Dine in]

I've been there a couple of times for the past few years. Before the owner died, the food and service there was pretty good. Until the owner died and his sons/daughters took over that the service became super bad. When I went there, they didn't seated us. When they gave us the menus, it was more like throwing it onto the table. After we got the food, it is all msgs!! I guess they are trying to regain some customers because of the bad service? The waitresses there spends most of the time gossiping. We waved like 3-4 times before they came and served us. I am DEFINITELY not going there AGAIN.

Fantastic HK Style Food!!
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 5:53pm [Dine in]

Their food there has reasonable price with fabuluous taste! The good thing about eating in the afternoon is they have a free drink to go with your order. The service there is fair, except when I wanted to order food, the manager didn't really help... But the waitresses there are very helpful, and service customers with smiles on their faces. Which made my experience of a quick lunch more enjoyable!
