Kaminari is a relatively small restaurant, staffed by pleasant and accommodating people. The sashimi, which I invariably have, is fresh and attractively prepared. I have eaten at Kaminari many times and have never been disappointed. It is not inexpensive, but given the quality, well worth...More

Kaminari Sushi is one of the best Sushi Restaurants in Westlake Village. We shared the best tempura shrimp combination (light and crispy), the delicious miso soup and the combination sushi platter, also delicious. The setting is beautifully decorated, like being in a intimate sushi bar...More

Kaminari has been around a long time but is always great. Small place but intimate and friendly. Must have the albacore sushi or blue crab hand roll with avocado. Howard is the owner with Tad and Shingo - great staff.

Clearly the best sushi we have had in the past 35 years! The owner Hide San serves only the freshest high quality fish in a traditional Japanese style.

Found this place via reviews. Small location in a strip mall that we had overlooked many times. Staff was very friendly and food was delicious. We will definitely be going back!

This is by far the best sushi restaurant ever! We've been to many across the Ventura County and Los Angeles County area and this one has the freshest fish, with substantial portions, and lots of menu and off the menu choices. The owner and his...More

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!
