This little unassuming restaurant has become my favorite place to eat. The sushi is excellent, the staff friendly, the service fast AND they throw in complimentary sushi and ice cream. All at a very reasonable price. We try to eat here once a week. Highly recommend it!

Good interior and atmosphere. Great quality, creative food. Friendly staff. Nice tea. Fresh. Variety. It's not only sushi, sashimi, and rolls, but also many different types of menus.

Visited 03/04/2017 for dinner.
You can't not like this place. Everything everyone says good about this place is true.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food (fish) is fresh and delicious, wonderfully and creatively prepared. Prices are pretty good and can be really good if you order 2 of their special rolls for $18.95. It's a really great deal! ... and there are a TON of special rolls to choose from.
The samurai roll, the rock and roll roll, the Hamachi dream, the Naruto were all fresh, served quickly and just excellent! Then, they presented us with 4 pieces of seared snapper sushi... gratis! This too was something I haven't had before and was just amazing.
Before we left, they gave us a wafer fish ice cream 'sandwich' kind of thing. Also gratis and a yummy ending to a great meal.
We've never been to a place, sushi or otherwise that gave away tasty little treats like this. Really amazing.
If there's a downside... it's the size of Kenko. It's too small for as popular as it is... but it's worth the wait. Go early.

I go out of my way for the fresh delicious sashimi and other dishes at this place. Kenko is on the small side, so if you don't like waiting, avoid the lunch and dinner rush hours--because there will be a wait. And if you do get in, the place is a complete madhouse! Small, crowded, loud, and fun--if you're in the mood for that! That said--I've never been disappointed with the service or anything I've eaten there or ordered and taken home to eat. The staff here is quite amazing and commendable--and so young. There's Jake (or "voice of reason"--VOR for short) who is the polite traffic cop during the lunatic asylum lunch/dinner rush hours, sweet and doting "aunt" Kate, no nonsense Andrew, and thoughtful Evan (who we would love to adopt). The owners don't know how fortunate they are in having this great staff. And the chefs are totally spot on. They actually remember food preferences (extra scallions) and offer complimentary tastings--almost unheard of in buck-hungry New Jersey! My family and I have enjoyed dining in during the off hours--after lunch crunch and before the dinner deluge--and joke with the staff about the coming tsunami! You won't be disappointed with Kenko's food and you will be delighted by the chefs and staff if you go at an off hour. THERE ARE NO RESERVATIONS TAKEN AT KENKO'S!
