I first went to Kamakura on the recommendation of locals, and they were absolutely right. This restaurant has excellent food and service. I have been back several times and they have never disappointed me.

Our meal (five friends) was a taste of Tokyo! Starting with a entree-sized vegetable tempura (which was wonderful) we had miso soup, some seaweed salad, some tossed green salad with sesame dressing. Then our sashimi botanico (sashimi garden) arrived. It was a big order of sashimi, beautifully presented and very, very tasty. Did I mention the fresh wasabi??? And gari??... More

Yes.. Tokio in San Salvador City.... that's how I describe this place, not for the environment which is good... it's for the food!. The best sushi(a generous size of their rolls) in town for my criteria, the prices are ok what they serve, the service is nice. The tempura and the soups are awesome. Perfect if you are in town...

Food was amazing. I had sushi and it was just awesome. Service was not as good, though, but very friendly and warm.

This is a very good traditional Japanese restaurant. It is in a house in the middle of a residential area but don't be misguided by this. It is actually quite good. Not you trendy sushi place but one of those few remaining true Japanese experiences. A bit pricey but probably getting your money's worth.

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
