I expected much from this place after reading the reviews. Storefront and layout are impressive as is the PERFECT service (arkun!). However, the taste of the Unagi Donburi was not quite up to what I expected (a bit on the sloshy side) and a bill of US$ 26 for a Donburi, glass of wine, and a simple tuna roll might... More

This great Japanese Restaurant is not in the normal areas where you would expect such an establishment. Its location will become more strategic as Diamond Island grows and develops. It is easy to find though and is on the main road that takes you out to Aeon Mall. It is a formal establishment with a very large Menu. I have... More

I went there for lunch with local colleagues. I ordered Seafood Bento set. In my opinion, it was not bad. I enjoyed the green mango welcome drink . The price was quite expensive comparing with the food quality.

Stopped by this restaurant under the Almond Hotel for lunch on a walk from Aeon Mall back to my hotel near Independence Monument. It's not the prettiest part of Phnom Penh, but inside the restaurant looks very welcoming. I was the only diner when I was there which seemed odd, but lunch is always a tricky meal for attracting customers.... More

Having lived in Japan for over eight years, I've become accustomed to good Japanese food. However, you will not find it at Kanji. I've been to the restaurant two or three times for business lunches and on each occasion we were offered the lunch menu only upon request - clearly they want customers to order off the even more outlandishly...

I ordered the salmon dish, the food was good, but as with all Japanese Restaurants, this place is not cheap.

The restaurant located near the royal palace so we gave it a try. Completely worth 15' walking around. Sashimi was fresh and delicious. Sushi also really good so far. Recommend.
