Description: A message from Kaminari Staff: Thank you all for supporting our restaurant through the years! It has been our absolute delight in serving you with the #1 best- rated sushi in the Conejo Valley area. Without you all we would not be here today and we would just like to thank you for the support and love you have given us! Authentic Japanese cuisine and sushi that rivals Japan's best. The owner / head chef moved to CA from Japan in the late 1970's. He opened his first family-owned restaurant and has since flourished and transformed to what we see today at Kaminari Sushi. Now with over 30 years of experiences and memories of sharing his dishes to the locals and visitors alike, there's no other that takes so much pride and care to creating beautiful & delicious sushi with great service. From exciting & new sushi rolls to the delicately cut fresh fish at its purest form, we cater to every hardcore sushi lover or newcomer. Please join us and experience a little slice of Japan!

This was our first time at Kaminari, and it is only 1.1 miles from our home! I discovered it through Tripadvisor and was excited to try it out with my husband for lunch. I had the Thunder Roll my husband had the Red Dragon. Both were fantastic. We will definitely be back and took a menu so we can order take out. Highly recommend for fresh sushi.

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in all of Southern California. Howard, the chef, only serves the freshest fish. He is VERY talented!

My husband and I are pretty snobby when it comes to our sushi, and this tops all sushi spots in Ventura County. Owned by a kind Japanese couple, the entire staff is knowledgable about fish and truly skilled in their sushi craft. If you have someone in your family or group that isn't into the raw stuff, there are plenty of cooked items to choose from as well. Howard, the owner, goes to the fish market daily and personally selects the fish he serves at his restaurant. Top quality! Buy the sushi staff a beer or sake to show them your appreciation once you've dined with them!

We have eaten here at least 8 times now. The quality of the fish is always outstanding and the portions are very nice.... the salmon/mango sashimi special is incredible if the mango is sweet and in season. Their Spanish Mackerel is some of the best we have ever had. The house sake is just great, and the service is excellent.
