Great Japanese place, located on an upstairs floor of the Bolivian Japanese Society's building in La Paz city centre, down the hill from Plaza del Estudiante. Has a regular chairs-and-tables section and a traditional Japanese sit-on-the-floor area. Good choice of dishes, but I nearly always end up having their sutamina ramen, which I would say is excellent. Very gracious service, and food is reasonably priced. Gets very busy at lunchtimes so good to go early, otherwise you may be stuck for a while waiting for a table and/or for your food to come out of the kitchen. Open for lunch and dinner, closed Mondays, has wi-fi. Recommended.

A good Japanese restaurant, with friendly and fast service. Food was great, not very expensive. You have a large choice of sushi dishes, but I would advice to take one of the mixed dishes.

Just lovely restaurant. The decor, the food (I've had the vegetarian sushi and full vegetarian meal), the atmosphere and music are great! Been missing sushi for my whole trip and finally I found a place worth a visit. It's not in the main city centre but absolutely walkable from plaza San Francisco.

The best Japanese I had in Latin America, comparable to some I've had in Japan. Ramen, katsudon, teriyaki fish all good, with tasty sauces. Wouldn't recommend for vegetarians. A little on the pricier side but well worth it if you like Japanese cuisine.

I went to ken-Chan a couple of times already, and i always order the same, the mixed sushi plate, Im a big fan of sushi, but didn't expect to find something decent in La Paz, however, the sushi is tasty, comes in good and filling portions. If you are there, try to go to the japanese area, where you sit on pillows on the ground, really cosy! Service is a bit slow though. Prices are a higher then average (59bs. for the mixed sushi) but for me it was worth it.
