After a while of traveling in Japan we wanted some home town food and hit upon Kemby's. Kemby's the place with the Nepalese owner, Sri Lankan chef, and a Japanese barmaid who likes blackjack and was soon off to Las Vegas for vacation. All this in Hiroshima could not add up to a good pub but it totally works. With... More

As an American, I feel a certain affinity for hamburgers...well not really...but KeMBY's burgers are really good and the beer selection is excellent. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. If you're craving something besides Japanese fare (as we were after 2.5 weeks in Japan) check this place out!

If you're looking for a simple burger or texmex this is the place to go. We were served very quickly and the food arrived soon after, which was tasty and reasonable portions. Happy hour meant we got 200 Yen off all our alcoholic drinks. Would go again!

What a great place. Met Prakash(?) the owner. Fantastic personality. Really brought a great American vibe to this corner of Hiroshima. Great beer selection. Decent burgers. My 7yo daughter wanted chocolate milk - Prakash didn't have any but he placed chocolate cake in a glass and Voila- made my daughters night. Highly recommend especially if you need a break or...

It has been 19 years since we first opened our doors and now, with a revamped menu and wide range of wine and beer selection at reasonable prices, we are here to serve you better. There are now 14 taps to choose from (American craft beers, local, German, Belgian and English Ales). 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. 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 or your hotel to call us in advance. Thank you.
