Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I came here with friends from Milan. One of the best local recommended restaurants, friends said. I love raw seafood and Kandoo offers a great variety! Start with amaebi, Italian red shrimp, and scampi, there is no better way than have them raw and fresh,...sweet and gelatin texture, a little bit of soy sauce with wasabi or the accompanying light yuzu soy, perfect to start the dinner with Gin Tonic or jasmine tea. Salmon tartar, fatty salmon and avocado with a touch of Japanese grapefruit yuzu sauce and sesame oil, perfectly melts in your mouth, one is not enough! Seared salmon sashimi with fresh wasabi, hamachi carpaccio, Kandoo tartar, all delicious and great appetizers! Yakisoba, like no others, stirred fried with homemade sauce, sweetness comes from apple juice, excellent touch. Kandoo offers a great selection of California rolls, could only have 2 rolls this time, the Tiger roll and the New Kandoo Maki, first melts smoothly and latter crunchy and flavorful. If you love nigiri, the real "sushi" as Japanese would say, but can't make all that carbs, Gunkan is the perfect solution! Each piece wrapped with sashimi and topped with scallop/spicy tuna/quail egg and truffle/etc, amazing small and rich bites. Get the Degustazione Gunkan, it's the Kandoo omakase. We'll definitely be back to try other dishes!More

Every year we go back to Italy in December and every year we stop by for dinner with friends. Quality is only going up time after time. Tartar Salmon is exquisite, sashimi is super fresh, the eel nigiri with truffle is soooo goood! I wouldn’t...miss the Yakisoba and the Tiger rollMore

Exquisite… some of the best sashimi, gyoza and teriyaki chicken I’ve ever tasted. What a find. This beautiful restaurant with incredibly kind staff, the perfect end to our week in Italy. It may feel as though it’s a little far out from the centre of...Milan but only just over 10 mins in a taxi and absolutely worth the trip. Thank you for a splendid evening :)More

I went to Kandoo with my boyfriend and a couple of friends for dinner, and was gladly surprised by the food and the place. Food was very fresh and tasty, with various options ranging from the traditional sushi, sashimi and nigiri to more exciting and...daring options that involved creativity and specific ingredients (foie gras, truffles and more). The decor was very nice, it had its own identity by recalling the restaurant's swirly logo, and had a sense of elegant cozyness to it. All in all a recommended experience!More

We had a lovely night with our family. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Our favourite dish was definitely the tuna with foie gras and truffle! Will come back to taste more dishes for sure.

Architecturally speaking the interior design did a great job. The staff is very polite and knowledgeable. The mise en place is simple. The dishes proposed were created with excellent raw materials, treated in the preparation and presented with the classic Japanese taste. The bill is...a bit high for a lunch. We will try again for a dinner.More

The food was magnificent. A Must Visit restaurant in Milan. Every time we visit Italy we always make sure to go to Kandoo. The menu is always updated and the food taste amazing. Innovative chefs and a true experience for foodies. The crew is friendly...and the owners know their food. Every dishes is prepared with care and they have a great wine selection. We take many food trips in Italy and Kandoo never disappoints! The gunkans and tartar are extraordinary!More

I use to order home delivery and eat at Kandoo as well: every time is a special experience; eating my choice and, or trying new combination of chef's creations. Kindness, hygiene, politeness are also Kandoo's spearhead. Happy to have it as my top sushi and...asian place. I really suggest Kandoo to all of you. Patrizia.More

My husband and I went to Kandoo to have lunch on Monday (finally they’ve reopened!!!) They really had the best sushi so far! Amazing flavour, fresh fish, well presented dishes combined with the great experience of the owner. He recommended some of the dishes and...well explained the background. Highly recommend!!!More

We keep going back to this execellent sushi restaurant as it never fails to disappoint. Their new menu is incredibly exciting and suprising, which is what sets Kandoo apart from the abundance of sushi establishments to be found in Milan. The owner, Cheng, and his...staff are attentive and professional and the ambience is classy and refined. Another great thing is that Cheng himself speaks English, a comfort to international diners. Even if you have tried Kandoo before, go back now and try the new menu - it is very, very special. P.S. Importantly during these times, they also do take-away or delivery too.More

Most amazing Japanese food in Italy! We always visit Kandoo when we are in Milan. They recently updated their menu and it was mind-blowing. The sushi rice is delicious and the sashimis are incredibly tasteful. I would also definitely recommend the sashimi with foie gras...and truffel and the sashimi salad. Lovely ambiance and friendly personnel.More
