While a little pricier than competitors, this is the tastiest sushi in town. The fish is very fresh, generous cuts of fish, and consistently good. Enjoy!

The taste of japanese food is authentic (not "japanese fast food") and we can trust to eat any items in the menu without getting sick. The portions are generous so what we like to do with my husband is to order different dishes and share. Sometimes the service is a little slow but it depends on how full it is.... More

The sushi was delicious, generous portions, service was a little slow and the people should smile a little bit more. The place is cozy and elegant.

The service here is amazing. The portions are generous and affordable. I have been here 10+ times and have never been sick. My family of four can eat for for under $60 and we are full and happy. We will miss this place when we leave.

The sashimi and sushi are fresh and authentic - the fish is fresh. My favourite - tekamaki is as good as in Japan. It's not cheap but always a worth while treat.

I will definitely go back. This was an authentic Japanese restaurant in San Salvador with very friendly service. I had spicy tuna roles and a Ramon soup dish. Both were excellent and I had more than half my food to take home so it was very well priced for the quantity. I also had a traditional Japanese soda that was... More

The place is superb!!! Loved the decoration and the staff is great, plus is that the owner is there in situ. Had four rolls which the ceviche roll was one of the best Ive tried. I totally recomend Kamakura for a nice dinner or lunch. Enjoy!!

Japanese restaurant I have visited several times, we went especially for Sushi. It will satisfy your taste buds, if Sushi is the reasoned for your visit, but nothing special! The original owner was a Japanese lady, but since I was told it was sold few years ago? The secret to good sushi, rice and good fresh cut of fish! Most... More
