“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Its not a huge restaurant or a well known chain, but this little gem is a great place for anyone who enjoys Asian cuisine. We have dined here a few times now and enjoyed it very much each time. My husband loves all the sushi & sashimi options. I prefer cooked food so I have tried both the chicken and salmon hibachi. The sauce is flavorful, not bland. There is also Teriyaki as well. The best appetizer is the rock shrimp tempura. The shrimp are huge and full of flavor, the tempura breading is light and crispy. The sauce is to die for!

Service has always been friendly and prompt. It can be pricey to dine here but the quality of food and value of what you get is fairly priced in our opinion. We will return and we will recommend to friends.

“Great Fresh Thai and Japanese food in Chambersburg”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

On the way home from a trip to Savannah looking for a quick meal not too far from I-81and found this restaurant on TA. Had a wonderful meal. The food was all freshly prepared and looked as good as it tasted. The menu is a mix of mostly Japanese with a fair number of Thai dishes as well. The portions are very big so we ended up with too much food but the leftovers tasted great the next day. Not to sound snobby but I was surprised to find a Japanese restaurant of such high quality off the beaten path.
As an aside our server was extremely helpful and courteous.
I drive by Chambersburg frequently and I will definitely be stopping here again.

“Kenzo = must try”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We order very frequently and it's always excellent. Sushi is fresh & yummy. Staff is super friendly! If you are in Chambersburg, forget Aki or other options - Kenzo is THE best.

“A surprise in C-burg”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

You think you've had sushi? You haven't had SUSHI until you've been to Kenzo. They tell you up front that sometimes they do not have something because they keep it in low stock. Which honestly, is what you want in a sushi joint in a small town. On top of that, everything tastes ... fuller. I do not know how to describe it better than this. Everything is obviously home made. Unlike the other major sushi restaurant in this town, the folks that run Kenzo create a welcoming atmosphere and do not try to rush you out within 20 minutes. They also smile and talk to you - so pleasant!
This is a wonderful restaurant.

“Excellent Food and Friendly People”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Kenzo is by far our favorite restaurant in Chambersburg. The food is always wonderful and the staff is always very friendly. They even know a lot of their patrons by name.

My wife and I always get a couple of basic rolls with the seafood seaweed soup (amazing!). Occasionally we do get an entree and have never been disappointed. Try the thai prawns :)

The ONLY reason why we gave this restaurant a 4 instead of a 5 is because the service, especially on weekends, is horribly slow. The restaurant is not terribly huge, but they only have 2 server (who are the nicest young ladies, by the way). It could take awhile to be seated and once seated it could take quite some time to get your order in. With that being said, they are always very apologetic and you can tell they will go out of their way for you.

The food quality vs other restaurants in this area are reason enough for us to come back, despite the sometimes slow service. We always feel like we are welcome and have NEVER had a bad meal.
