Kamakura Japanese Restaurant (Los Gatos)

One Sunday, we were trying to figure out where to go with a couple of friends for lunch. They love sushi. They go out probably once a week to get it. We like our sushi too, just not as often. The hard part, though, is finding a sushi place open for lunch on Sunday. We ended up picking Kamakura Japanese Restaurant in Los Gatos .

It took us a while to find parking – who knew Los Gatos was so crowded on Sunday afternoon? When we got there, the restaurant was busy, but we were able to find a table. Unfortunately, the service was quite slow.

Normally, I’d go for nigiri, but I wasn’t feeling like it today. So I got the “Golf Roll” – unagi, ebi, maguro, and avocado wrapped inside-out and then topped with tobiko. Ehh. It sounded good but I thought it was sloppily presented and really not that great tasting.

Tai, hamachi, maguro and sake sashimi. Decent, with the hamachi coming out as the best.

Overall I’d say it was overpriced for just standard or even sub-par sushi fare. Typical for Los Gatos eats in general, IMO.
