Food was delicious! Service was lovely. The tables are partitioned to limit contact with others, and menus and tables were regularly wiped down. Lovely place.

I really enjoyed Kenji! The waiting staff were incredibly lovely, attentive and capable. The food was delicious. I particularly liked the soft shell crab roll, the yakitori and the eel nigiri. The booths were super cute and authentic. I will absolutely be back and I would 100 percent recommend! ☺️

I found this lovely little restaurant online when looking for something a little different. The food was lovely, the staff were brilliant. Super efficient and even when it was busy it was all under control. Highly recommend! We will be back. Great value for money over all.

Felt very spacious and safe. Kenji installed protective screens between tables and all staff were wearing masks. Service was quick and seamless. The staff were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. My food was delicious and I feel their menu was inclusive for many dietary requirements. I would very much recommend Kenji sushi and I will most definitely be back.

If I had to consider just the food itself was a 10 but unfortunately cause of the restriction we got tiny space to move on the table. First time I don't give a 10 for everything, but it s covid19 's fault, not restaurant' s or employees'.

Food was great and although the waitress was clearly doing her best, it was very very busy with both sit in and takeaway and it was difficult for her to keep up. Very pleasant and helpful though despite being rushed off her feet. Not enough room inside for all customers and the delivery drivers and take away customers kept leaving the door open so it was cold.

The booking was easy, and the confirmation email was received immediately. We arrived on time, although it is quite difficult to social distance due to the small space, we appreciated the health measures and advising everyone that enters to wear a mask. The takeaways is very busy with people coming in and out or standing at the back putting in an order or collecting their orders, a little annoying to those sitting at the back trying to enjoy a meal. Next time we sit in the corner to avoid this. Meal was lovely and enjoyable and reasonably priced.

I have eaten salmon teriyaki many times and what I received with the rice was not what I was expecting in quality and taste. The other dishes ordered were fine.
