Description: It has been 17 years since we first opened our doors and now, with a revamped menu and wide range of wine selection at reasonable prices, we are here to serve you better. Located near the Peace Park, it is an easily accessible place from any downtown hotels, hostels and ryokans. Our friendly and multi lingual staff is always here to make you feel at home. It is a place to meet strangers, friends, and locals over good wine and food. There is plenty of selection on the tap too, Heineken, Asahi Super Dry and Guiness to name a few. For your entertainment we have sports on TV, good music is always playing or you could just shoot some pool with the regulars. We also have live music frequently. It is all about good people, good food (most of them locally sourced) and a good atmosphere. It is one of the few places with free Wi-Fi. Do not forget to try out KeMBY's when you are in Hiroshima. On weekends our establishment has a lot of private functions so we advise you to call us in advance. Thank you.

We visited Kemby’s fairly early on the evening of 18 November. The welcoming was noticeably colder than we had become used to over two weeks in Japan. I ordered a Kemby’s burger and my friend ordered chicken. These were placed on the table by the male waiter on shift in silence – no acknolwdgement, eye contact or “enjoy your meal”.... More

I looked up KeMBy's on trip Advisor while staying in Hiroshima on business and saw that there were several negative comments. We know how that goes so we decided to try it. We were very pleased with the food and service. In fact, we went back for the next 4 nights for dinner. So if you like American food and... More

KeMBY's has become my new favorite haunt to hang out at. I'm a local and love going to meet my friends and of course, meet new people. It's the kind of place you can go by yourself and within minutes you will meet someone else to talk to. I definitely recommend it for both locals (Japanese and gaijin) and overseas... More

Located near the Peace Park, Kemby's is a great place to drop in for a meal or drink if you don't feel like going into the busy shopping district. Staff is friendly and helpful, food is good for those in the mood for a bit of Western food. If you're lucky, you'll be in on a night with live music.... More

While on our great Japanese Tour and after 3 nights in a Ryokan we were ready for some western food and this place hit the spot perfectly. A very warm welcome, we had popped in to book a table and no name was taken "I will remember you" and the table we had chosen was indeed waiting for me. There... More

This is the place you want to establish as your home away from home. I have been coming to Hiroshima for quite some time and I always make Kembys the first stop for dinner, a game of pool, or drinks. I've never had a bad meal here. Burgers are good, pasta dishes are great, salads are fresh, and for Japan............he... More

I'm sitting in this restaurant now, I hesitate to call it a bar because the food is delicious. There are beers from my home state (Oregon), Rugby is on the television, and there are sexy women EVERYWHERE! Check it out!

Whether it is a friendly game of pool in the early evening or a busy later night bar atmosphere, acoustic-style performers of live music matching the feel perfectly, or a quality International cuisine restaurant with a huge selection to choose from (so many dishes), a night at Kemby's in Hiroshima is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. For long term Japan foreigners,... More
