My friend and I had such a lovely night, the food and service was amazing. The only thing I would say that the front door was opened quite a lot and we had to get up and close it. It was cold when it was opened. We will definitely be back again.

After long time we couldnt go to eat at the restaurant, we found the same amazing service. They care about people, how we feel, if everything is ok. And what I really appreciated, the two asian ladies workin there, they never said a single words in their language talking together. Only English. This is professional. Thumbs up! I ll be back soon

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! ☺️

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.

Very friendly and helpful front of house staff. I'm sure once covid is over, I would score 10 for ambiance, once the table dividers are down. For us, more variety with the set meals or a sharing platter would be amazing! Loved the bento box for the kids!

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.
