My wife and I went to Kamakura last night and were simply underwhelmed. We were seated promptly and the hostess and waitress were friendly, but not very attentive. My wife ordered hot tea, but it was weak and only moderately warm. The waitress didn't notice...More

My wife and I dine at Kamakura 3-4 times per year, and have done so over the long term. I have never had a bad meal there, nor have we had poor service. That established, I think they are a little strong on their pricing,...More

I've never had the hibachi here before but we always stop for the sushi. The sushi has always been good it's fresh in the price is a very good. You won't go wrong if you need sushi in champagne it's a great place to go.

Japanese box lunches are always fun and usually a little pricy. This one was okay but not great. I had a combo box. The chicken teri and shrimp tempura didn't seem particularly fresh. My companion had beef on rice, which I tasted. It was good,...More
