They were full, but the largest table was staff & family. Our food came out piping hot, and the hot bowl of udon above a flame was a nice trick. But $18 for broth,... More

The standard of food in this place has deteriorated lately. Used to offer good value for its $10 lunch , our favourite was salmon on rice. Apart from that , other items are mediocre. They have since taken off salmon on rice from menu and no longer has good value items on offer. For example the seafood udon has just... More

What can I say? Kenzo has a fantastic range of $10 lunches and my daughter and I enjoyed Salmon Don and Yaki Udon Chicken, both came with Miso soup. The service is fantastic and the restaurant is in a good location with plenty of parking. I would definitely recommend coming here.

It's two years since I last reviewed Kenzo, so it deserves another plug. It's always a pleasure to dine here. The staff are cordial and courteous and the decor and ambiance seems to fit with its estuary location. We tend to eat European-style Japanese dishes, so this time around S had a Red Teriyaki chicken and I had the Seafood... More
