My daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren all like this restaurant a lot....I have been there 4 or 5 times and do not like it. It has become a challange, I like oriental foods. If I eat there with them I AM GOING TO FIND SOMETHING I LIKE. Last trip 01/03/08, I ordered veg stir fry 50% was cabbage, and arrived almost cold....one would think for $13 I could get more than cabbage and soy sauce soup. Tasted wife,s Soba and friends Chic B Box...no go on either one. There must be something there I will like...any advice?

had read a review that the owner of the restaurant hails from Kamakura in Japan. However, the restaurant has more than one Thai employee, one of whom was a server who knew less about the menu than I did. So it's anybody guess as to who the chef is.

The sushi is fairly decent, though the $1 offer is somewhat misleading. Only 8 types of sushi are included in the offer, and its a dollar PER piece.

Kamakura is a great place to go for a wide variety of occasions. I've been there with friends, birthdays, family dinners, business and organization meetings, and semi-formal events. The sushi is good, wait staff is considerate, and the management is accomodating to your needs.

Pros: GOOD sushi, Accomodating, Great servers

Cons: Parking (30 spots)

I can honestly say that the only thing close to good Japanese about this restaurant was the rice. The salad was like a halved head of iceberg lettuce with some tasteless dressing. The sauce for the chicken tariyaki would be better from a bottle at the store. The sushi rolls were mostly rice (which makes you fill up fast), but which leaves you with the distinct impression that it wasn't all that quality. The one good thing I can say is that the sashimi was tasty. If you were only going to have that, then you might be okay.

I use Kamakura as a Japanese steak-house for Teppan-style cooking. Fri - Sun call ahead for reservations. The food is awesome and prepared in front of you. The staff is courteous and makes the evening fun. Dishes range from $12 - $25.
