To ensure their produce is prepared to a high standard, owners Kazu Murayama, Yuki Munehiro and Boeing Cho seek out their sushi chefs from Japan.
Despite its central location, Kenzan offers a calming sanctuary from the busy city. The venue partitions off distinct dining areas using bamboo slats and the black walls offer a warm contrast to the soft-hued lighting.
Trading since 1961, Kenzan offers reliable, traditional Japanese cuisine, including vibrant platters of fresh sushi and sashimi. The California maki roll features fresh slices of prawn and firm chunks of avocado rolled up with a thin layer of rice and served with pickled ginger and soy sauce. From the main courses, choose from a selection of proteins served with a teriyaki or sweet soy sauce. The salmon is a standout: the skin is grilled and the salmon itself is well seasoned and served with a light, sweet dressing, perfect for mopping up with the rice accompaniment.
PSST! Put yourself in the hands of the masters; take a seat at the sushi bar and watch as the chefs plate up their recommendations on request.
