“Good sushi & sashimi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Kenji is tucked away in Camberwell. It serves sushi/sashimi and hot food. We love the sushi & sashimi - very fresh! The sushi & sashimi gourmet combination is well presented in a boat. More modern sushi rolls include the soft shell crab roll and the crumbed prawn sushi rolls - all very good. The prices are also very reasonable.

Important to note that there is two types of sushi there - takeaway counter and dining sushi. There is a big difference in standard.

The hot food is average - we only go there for the sushi & sashimi.

Beware - you may not get a seating if you do not book for dinner.

Service could be better.

“Seaweed salad and inari - oh yes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Kenji's store is quite unimposing, though like many restaurants of said ilk, it is the food one has most interest in. My particular favourites, as the title suggests, are the seaweed salad and vegetarian inari, which are cheap and tasty, and for those unadventurous diners among us, the chicken teriyaki is also good. The streams of customers popping in and out during lunch are surely a good indication of Kenji's popularity and reputation.
