“Tasty food & friendly services”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Went for a nice dinner on a Saturday night. The services were good though the menu is only available in Japanese or French, so be warned if you don't speak one of those two languages! The staff, however, speaks decent English. We went for the tasting menu which was 49 Euro per person. The presentation of the dishes was good and the food tasty. The fatty tuna sashimi was one of our favorite from the tasting menu. The manager stopped by our table several times during the evening and chatted with us as well. Overall, I felt that the ambiance and services were great and the food was decent. Parking near the restaurant was extremely limited though. We saw a third-party valet service there, so you could opt for that option. There's otherwise the public garage "St. Espirit" where you'll need to enter the garage from the high village and can take the elevator down to the low side where the restaurant is located. I would recommend Kamakura for a nice Japanese dinner in Luxembourg, though if you're used to very good Japanese food from Asia or some parts of the US, you may not be too impressed here. ;-)

“good but not overly enthusiastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

it's a bit tricky, when reading all those positive reviews one has to manage his expectations.
I was disappointed in a sense that service and atmosphere were average, food was good but not as good as expected and the bill is quite heavy.
my conclusion based on this was: good enough to return when in Luxemburg but as they say "ne vaut (pas) le détour" when better alternatives are available.

“If price is not an issue, Kamakura is definitely worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Kamakura is one of the most renowned and oldest restaurants in Luxembourg and it does a solid job of living up to its reputation.

Entering the restaurant, you may find that decor seems a little outdated. The service is sufficiently friendly and certainly professional. The menu features a wide selection of Japanese cuisine including many dishes you will never find in a sushi joint.

Overall, the quality of the dishes is certainly above average, similar to any popular "authentic" Japanese restaurant in California. The prices are, however, high. But I'm guessing you already know, that in Luxembourg one has to pay a big premium for quality food.
