Kamikaze was recommended to us awhile back. We decided to try it for take out. The menu was huge which we viewed online. So many choices! We decided on a sashimi platter. Ordering by phone was easy and ready in 15 minutes. Sashimi was fresh and delicious. We are looking forward to going back and tryimg more from the vast... More

Well lit, clean, affordable, but above all, the food is very good. Inventive Sushi rolls, well presented, colorful, and service is good. Happy hour until 6:30 PM, has many tables and a good size Sushi bar. They seem to have all you would want, sushi, hot dishes, appetizers, noodles, wine and beer, etc. Staff is happy, smiling, friendly, and attentive.... More

Service was hit or miss, they forgot stuff and it was hard to get their attention. Food was okay, happy hour discount hand rolls are a good deal. Prices make up for so so service and food is not great but consistently okay.

If you love Japanese food but are put off by the high prices in Marin County, this is the answer. We stopped in and tried their lunch special bento boxes. I had the chicken teriyaki and my dining companion had the vegetable tempura. Both were perfectly prepared and came with sides of delicious miso soup, rice, salad and edamame. The... More

A neighborhood restaurant. For the best service sit at the sushi bar. They will tell what is the best fish that day. The maki are interesting and hot food is available from the kitchen.

Kamikaze appeared in San Rafael, CA's Montecito Shopping some time in the 80s. It's established itself as a place for singles, couples, families and parties of all kinds, with many "regulars" from the local neighborhoods. The restaurant is in a corner with a large picture window view of the hills of west Marin. They serve all the usual choices and... More

We've been here for lunch every couple of months. It's always been good no matter what we order. They have a selection of custom rolls that are fun to explore.

Stopped by this place after finding out a friend had worked there. Was amazed at their sushi happy hour menu... 2 dollar hand rolls, 2 dollar oysters, and some amazing beer selection including one of the only remaining true Japanese brewed beers... Would go back without a second though and already am dreaming about sushi...

I’ve been having occasional lunches at Kamikaze over a period of several years now and I’m beginning to recognize faces in the crowd. Guess that makes me a regular customer. I must be, since now they ask me if I want the usual. My “usual” is a combination box of steak teriyaki, shrimp and vegetable tempura, steamed rice, salad, miso... More

I had a combo teriyaki chicken and sashimi nigiri. The sashimi was extremely fresh but the rice was a bit gummy. Three others ordered teriyaki New York steak and said it was delicious. Four others had the the teriyaki New York steak as one of their combo items and loved it. Another person thoroughly enjoyed his plate of sashimi.. Miso... More
