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!

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!
