“Excellent modern cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I have now eaten three times at this wonderful restaurant and have enjoyed all that it has offered each time. The service is polite and respectful - no overwhelming personalities. The food is great in variety, including traditional Japanese dishes and those with outside influences. The entree platter is an excellent opportunity to sample a wide selection of mouthfuls of creations with intriguing flavours. The mains selections are also well planned to suit diversity in diners - vegetarian and caters very well to both seafood and meat lovers. The desserts are appealing with a variety of souffles offered on the night of our visit - mine was a raspberry and Gorgonzola souffle.
Highly recommended for an enjoyable night out dining at quite reasonable prices (byo recommended ).

“Still one of the best food experiences in Adelaide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great service, interesting choices on the menu, beautiful bottle of Samuel gorge mouverdre. Slow roasted veal ravioli entree was stunning , as was the fish special of barramundi with scampi dumplings...ooh, my mouth is watering again just thinking about it!
As for the chocolate and banana souffle...it was wont fail but surpassed by the citrus and Brie souffle my party had , with lime ice cream - wowed , you bet!

“You don't have to love Japanese to enjoy Kenji”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Service is traditional Japanese and professional. Traditional Japanese food is excellent and beautifully presented. However is Japanese is not your bag then they also have Modern Oz style dishes with some Japanese influence through addition of one or two traditional Japanese ingredients. Decor is sleek and welcoming
