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.

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.
