Positioned by the side of the estuary this spotlessly clean and bright restaurant offers good value Japanese food. What is also appealing is that they are often open when other restaurants in the area are closed.....for instance on public holidays. The sashimi is excellent both in quality and value for money. Recommended.

We've been here many times over the years. It's always been good, but it's slipped. We enjoy Japanese food regularly. But today was, ok at best. They were full, but the largest table was staff & family. Our food came out piping hot, and the hot bowl of udon above a flame was a nice trick. But $18 for broth,... More

The standard of food in this place has deteriorated lately. Used to offer good value for its $10 lunch , our favourite was salmon on rice. Apart from that , other items are mediocre. They have since taken off salmon on rice from menu and no longer has good value items on offer. For example the seafood udon has just... More

What can I say? Kenzo has a fantastic range of $10 lunches and my daughter and I enjoyed Salmon Don and Yaki Udon Chicken, both came with Miso soup. The service is fantastic and the restaurant is in a good location with plenty of parking. I would definitely recommend coming here.

Had forgotten this place was there after visiting once and was closed. Glad we came back, great fresh Japanese food and at $10-15 for lunch couldn't be beaten!
