A friend recommended Kenji, and we're so glad they did. Amazing food, beautifully presented, and accompanied by friendly service. I wish there was a six-star rating. We've been told they're closing on 28 January to move to Melbourne. Adelaide's loss will be Melbourne's gain.

Sushi and Sashimi not the freshest. Tamago inedible. For a Sushi regular Kenji was the worst experience in Australia. A lost dining experience considering all those great restaurants around.

We visited the restaurant to have a taste of something different. The food is created with passion and is sourced fresh from the central market in Adelaide. If you get an opportunity to talk to the chef, you will be honoured! If Japanese food is...More
