“Don't miss this restaurant - Kamui. YUM!”
Review of Kamui

Kamui
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 February 2018

We recently ate our farewell dinner at Kamui Japanese Restaurant (formerly Oriental Stand) in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala (across the street from Cafe Las Cristalinas, 50 Meters Up Hill From Panajachel Dock). It is owned and run by Mayumi, a vivacious and friendly woman, who learned the art of making sushi and other Japanese delectables in her home country. The restaurant is very clean and small with only a few tables inside. There is also an open air outside dining area where you can sometimes sit and listen to musicians play pleasing (not too loud) music. The food was carefully prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. I ordered Tempura rolls - fabulous. Others ordered the salmon poke with avocado and rice which was also declared “the best”! The owner is extremely conscientious when sourcing the food she uses. She makes her own tofu, Kim Chi and pickled ginger and uses only pure water with which she cleans and cooks the food, so there is no worry whether or not it is safe to eat. It was a fitting last meal in Guatemala. You’re missing out if you don’t stop here!

The owner is both an amazing chef and super friendly. We've eaten there several times so far (highly recommend the salmon poke) and look forward to more. She makes tofu, and delicious kimchi among other things. Very child-friendly.

I came across this place on a wonder in the city and was sooo happy about it. Went back twice more on my stay in San Pedro. The burger was amazing as everyone says. <3 Can't wait to go again on my next trip to Lake Atitlan.
