“Great Japanese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

We went to Ken-Chan based on the reviews on here and we had a really good meal.

We started with the trout nigiri (locally caught in lake titicaca. They were very good, though the pickled ginger looked radioactive.

Next we each had a ramen. Both were enormous and and delicious. Neither of us could finish them and we left feeling stuffed, but happy. It is not the cheapest place in La Paz, but well worth the price (it is still very reasonable).

The only negative is that you have to wait a little while, but when the food comes out, you soon forget that you waited at all.

“Excellent Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

True and authentic Japanese food, neat service and freshness. I asked for the clerk at the hotel if there was a sushi joint nearby and he recommended this place. Great place, a true Japanese chef could be seen in the kitchen which gave me lots of confidence. The price was good and the variety and freshness of sushi was all you could expect for a landlocked country. The trout sashimi is the king and the miso soup was almost what you could eat in LA. The place is clean and packed with Japanese tourist who I think appreciate very much the food. Two thumbs up!

“Nice restaurant, good food and lots of it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2011

My husband was craving Japanese home-cooking, so we headed to Ken-Chan, and really enjoyed it. The gyoza is very good, and we also enjoyed our set meals, particularly the yakiniku (katsu was nice too, but Bolivian pork is a little fattier than Japanese). Prices are reasonable for Sopocachi, not rock-bottom for La Paz, but portions are very generous and the service and atmosphere were definitely worth it.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2010

Japanese is our favourite food back at home and we were pleasantly surprised to find good quality japanese in La Paz. The service was attentive and the meal was extremely well priced. Try the gyoza, it was delicious. I would go back again.
