Kenjo was recommended to me by the concierge at my hotel. I was skeptical when I first went in. They had taken my reservation over the phone but when I walked in, it was almost empty! I was seated at the sushi bar. The decor is really simple. Nothing pretentious at all. Somewhat bright lighting and sort of cluttered. It's... More

We were invited for sushi here by a business associate during a recent trip. The restaurant was a little hard to find - a small hidden gem in the busy Tsim Sha Tsui area of Hong Kong. The sushi and sashimi were so fresh, like none I have had before. If you are looking for outstanding sushi, over a fancy... More

I've heard great things about this restaurant and decided to come for lunch. This is as authentic as Japanese food in HK gets. The lunch menu was great and do try the omakase if you have the time. The chef recommends a great assortment of fresh fish.

Absolutely disgusted by the chefs of the place, I literally saw one pick his nose while cooking and another kept wiping the sweat of his forehead with his hand while cooking. Was tempted to call the government to report. This was like adding insult to injury in a place that was overrated and overpriced. There are way better and more... More

This place looked closed but we could see diners eating through the slatted blinds and once inside, it's busy but very authentically Japanese, with nice ambiance. The food was fresh and well prepared but we thought quite pricy.

Hidden place in a blind street, you got to know it to go there. Quiet atmosphere, right after you get a seat the show begins. As I was with a regular customer, we just let Kendo and his team dish out the best of what they had: baby tuna, king-size oyster, semi-fat tuna, burbot liver, toro-tuna, sea urchins, wagyu beef...

One of the best sushi experiences of my life. Granted, the prices are dear but what else would you expect with the finest ingredients. If you sit at the sushi bar allow Kenjo to do his magic and you won't be disappointed.
