Clearly the best sushi we have had in the past 35 years! The owner Hide San serves only the freshest high quality fish in a traditional Japanese style.

Since opening years ago this is my favorite sushi place. High quality with excellent service. Warm and friendly staff with great fish. Try the albacore sushi- the best.

Found this place via reviews. Small location in a strip mall that we had overlooked many times. Staff was very friendly and food was delicious. We will definitely be going back!

This is by far the best sushi restaurant ever! We've been to many across the Ventura County and Los Angeles County area and this one has the freshest fish, with substantial portions, and lots of menu and off the menu choices. The owner and his staff are just terrific. Can't say enough about how good this sushi restaurant is.

Kaminari sushi is one of the most authentic sushi restaurants you will find outside of Japan. My family and I always come here.

The chefs somehow know your pallete perfectly and give... More

We have tried almost all the sushi bars in the area, but finally stopped trying others when we found Kaminari. Kaminari is beyond excellent, it is the absolute best sushi in Thousand Oaks area. The fish is always fresher than fresh. The preparations are incredible! The Chef's are friendly, experienced at their craft. They are very attentive to everyone, you... More
