Really yummy Japanese food with good service

Do yourself a favour and try this restaurant. Last nights dinner was excellent : the tempura prawns were great and the Komo rolls were tasty as starters along with a good miso soup.Tye main dish of duck was delicious....a real find in Adelaide.

After a long wait I finally made it to Kenji, and was highly impressed!! The service was wonderful, attentive but not in your face. The food was quick, fresh and absolutely delicious!!! It's a must try for anyone that enjoys Japanese cuisine. The prices are very reasonable! Enjoy!

Nothing has changed at Kenji - it is still absolutely beautiful and interesting food of the Japanese 'fusion' style. Four of us dined slowly through a tasting platter, small main course and dessert. At the end of the evening Kenji talked us through his 'wing of tuna', which I might be tempted to try next time!

The food was not yummy and was way overpriced for what it was. Shame, we came from London and I specifically chose this restaurant.

Firstly, if booking a table on a Friday or Saturday evening, you should consider a week and a bit ahead. This is an intimate restaurant which follows the Japanese tradition of neatness & precision in everything from service to food presentation. We both opted for the 8 course Kaiseki style offering. We fully expected that there would be a percentage... More

At the last minute we booked this restaurant for New Years Eve. The only tables available were outside. It was a little warm but as we were eating later this didn't matter. We had the entree tasting platter that looked and tasted amazing . It was a great way to taste a little of the vast array of exotic entrees.... More

As usual, the food was delicious, the presentation of the food a visual delght & the service friendly,helpful & knowlegable. All courses were excellent & a good wine list. However, the highlight was the raspberry & gorgonzola soffle with walnut ice cream.

Family and friends have recommended the Kenji experience so we just had to check it out. To taste a range of dishes we ordered a double of the mixed appetisers followed by a Bento box and an asian curry(yes curry!). All washed down with a Coonawarra sparking red. The highlight of the mixed appetisers was the soy milk soup with... More
