Mumbai, January 2020: It doesn’t happen often that you walk into a restaurant and are greeted by gleeful faces of diners and whiffs of lingering aromas signaling what’s to come, does it? Kenzen, Mumbai’s latest Sushi and Tempura Bar bears a witness to this scene every day, a testament to its roaring success and truly Japanese culinary craftsmanship.
The creation of two childhood best friends- Tanuj Bhambri and Joy Gohil, Kenzen is a powerful recipe of Chef Tanuj’s culinary prowess and Joy’s command over catering to the whims of the audiences. After initially toying with the idea of a delivery kitchen, both the co-owners decided to go all hands in.
Kenzen is homely and intimate, with minimal yet sophisticated ambience that fittingly borderlines on contemporary chic. Clean and aesthetic, Kenzen is a true reflection of its selective menu with perfectly mastered dishes. The attendants are friendly, attentive and connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine, bearing no surprise as to why Kenzen is being touted as one of Bandra’s best tributes to comfort Japanese cooking and culture.
A few of the must try dishes that will soothe your senses and simultaneously make you jump out of ecstasy, all gloriously bundled up into one are: For the vegetarians, the Avocado cream cheese, Asparagus tempura maki or Veg fried rice in oyster sauce that will ensure no FOMO. For the hardcore Asian lovers, pick from Salmon Avocado Sushi that is not only light and refreshing but also has wasabi and pickled ginger for that hearty goodness, Soft Shell Crab Roll with remarkable plating and a flavorful explosion in your mouth, or the Chicken katsu curry and Prawns in yuzu butter with garlic fried rice that will make your mind, body and soul Hallelujah! The ride isn’t over yet as some of their desserts such as the Japanese Cotton Cheesecake with Miso Ice Cream and Salted Caramel are equal parts fluffy, rich, sweet and heavenly. With two amazing food devotees at the helm of Kenzen, the restaurant serves up everything with love, care, thoughtfulness and attention to detail like no other. Affordable, Astounding and Appetizing, Kenzen should definitely be on the list for that next great meal that you’ll cherish forever.
