The Age Good Food Guide (2012/2013 & 2013/2014/2015/2016) One Chef’s Hat
“Generations have enjoyed Kenzan and after more than 30 years, the so-called empress of Melbourne’s Japanese restaurants maintains her reign…. The Menu still features favourites… And you’ll always find more unusual fare on the daily specials…”
“Kenzan’s always-popular sushi bar proves its mettle, with dedicated sushi chefs crafting exemplary sushi using high-quality seafood that’s delicately arranged and subtly garnished.”
Australian Good Food and Travel Guide
Sincere smiles and greetings welcome you away from the rush at Kenzan Japanese Restaurant in Collins Street. Kenzan Japanese Restaurant has recently undergone extensive renovations and still boasts 3 stunning private dining rooms. The generous Japanese hospitality and attentiveness is bound to make you feel important. The menu could include Shiitake Ebitsumeage – Fresh shiitake mushrooms stuffed with minced prawn, then deep fried or Sushi and Sashimi combination – choose from small, medium and large.

The melt-in-your-mouth tuna belly is imported from Japan…”
