About Kenzan Japanese Restaurant

Situated in the heart of Melbourne City, the Chef Hat awarded Kenzan Japanese Restaurant is a destination for authentic Japanese dining. Since opening its doors in 1981, this oriental restaurant takes you away from the rush of Collins Street into a relaxed setting of mood lighting, wooden fixtures and warm neutral colours. Encompassing a selection of fresh sushi, sashimi and traditional mains, Kenzan’s extensive menu highlights a diverse array of large and small options. Choose from hot entrees like chawan mushi – steamed free range egg custard with seafood and vegetables, before a main such as unajyu – grilled eel with sweet soya sauce on a bed of rice. Those looking for something lighter are invited to sit at the sushi bar over sushi and sashimi plates and watch the chefs in action.

Smashing! Awesome atmosphere and food was super fresh. Very highly recommended!


Went to this place as per Crown Towers Concierge on Saturday Night 22/9/2012 with friend and WOW what fantastic Atmosphere and food where do I start. Will go to Melbourne again to eat here at the resturant. Keep it up guys. Hugo


Look no further - as a restaurant owner my belief this is the Best Japanese on the Eastern Seaboard - Traditional Japanese with no American Twist. When i need my Fix i look no where else! Thank you Kenzan.
