We went to Kamakura to celebrate my son's 9th birthday. He loved it! The service was awesome. They were super kind to the kids and made every effort to accommodate us (brining milk after one boy ate too much wasabi). The sushi was excellent (we were told it is mostly imported from Miami) and we also liked the yakisoba.

This is the best sushi place in El Salvador. This is not the typical commercial sushi place. Here they serve real japanese sushi, sashimi, etc.

I've been here just one, unfortunately!! My ex boyfriend took me there once, but since its location makes it hard to find, I haven't been able to come back. Little expensive yes, but OMG they have this soy thing that tastes delicious. I'm actually looking forward to come back... eventually.

The menu is very extensive, yet pretty much everything is high quality food. This is my favorite Japanese restaurant in San Salvador, and it has a very authentic atmosphere

If you think sushi is good because you had some rolls in an american franchise, it's because you never tried Kamakura! it is a really fresh and authentic Japanese food.
