Where do I start for this review. Arrived to celebrate a colleagues departure and they thought of going here as they stated the food was amazing. I admit, I was apprehensive at first, had never ate sushi or anything nor use chopsticks so I was...More

It was a head scratching moment. A clue of what was to come. And with hindsight I should have read the sign on the door. Open here. A sign on the door reads ‘open here’. Twist the handle and push. It was too difficult. Too...More

Edinburgh has its fair share of sushi restaurants and we have been to a few of them. From the bang average (Yo Sushi) and the superb (Kanpai) and this little cozy place sits right in between. The dishes served up were up with the higher...More

Today was our third visit to Kenji and it was the usual high standard of food. We got spicy tuna maki, the Tokyo roll, a special crispy roll with prawn and salmon and two cokes. Everything was delicious and fresh. The small garnishes and sauces...More

I went here with my boyfriend for our anniversary dinner. This was probably one of the BEST sushi experiences we have had! The quality is incredible and we could not fault a single thing about this restaurant. It's just a shame we don't live in...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
