I stayed in Los Gatos for two weeks and enjoyed the food here so much I ate here four times. The sushi is excellent and the staff are very friendly.

Need a good fast place to eat. This is it. I've been here about 50 times in the last 8 years, all but 2 of those visits were enjoyable. This is a go to everyday Japanese restaurant. I would not say this place is a 4 or 5 stars but it offers very good food, with decent service, at an... More

I've been to many Sushi restaurants where the serve help is a bit curt but at least the food was very good. The serve help here was way beyond rude and the food was below mediocre.

They are not a super slick Sushi house, but with raw fish, it's all about the freshness, and Kamakura is usually very fresh. They also make some nice signature rolls, like the Giant and Justin. Their staff is very friendly and attentive. Don't expect sublime, but it's a good spot to get your Japanese fix.

As a Chef and avid lover of Sushi and Japanese cuisine when I'm traveling and frankly, that is most of the time, I frequent local sushi joints. I have been to Los Gatos at least 5 times but never visited Kamakura Sushi and Sake House on Santa Cruz in the heart of downtown Los Gatos. My hosts advised me to... More
