Ken of Japan
KEN of JAPAN is located in the heart of Simi Valley for over 30 years. KEN of JAPAN is a place where you can have a casual dinner, or bring a group of friends to enjoy our famous teppanyaki grill, sushi & sashimi and various japanese dinings.
I love this restaurant. They are pricey, but almost always offer coupons for buy one get one free. We always have the Tappan and the chef's are very friendly and fun - they really entertain you. The staff has always been friendly there every time we've gone and we've been going for years. It has been frequented by some celebrities also. I think some of these reviews are overly critical. This place has been in business since I've been coming there in the 80's, so keep that in mind. Everything is very clean and the food is fresh and prepared in front of you. Tell then you're celebrating a birthday and they'll make a flaming volcano for you for free. Trust me when I say it's a great experience... and I'm picky! This place isn't elegant, but a great clean place to have fun and eat great food. Enjoy.
AWESOMEST RESYRAUNT EVER!!!!!!! best shrimp and steak and tofo soup!!!!!!!!!! i love this place!!! go there for all of my birthdays!!!!!!!!! i recommend it!!!!! if you dont luike it WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go there now!!!!!!!!!!! seriously.
I am not sure about the last 2 reviews, but Ken of Japan is a great restaurant! I will admit that the albacore is better on certain days, but that is sushi people. I will say the only annoying thing about the place is one of the lady's sushi chefs comes in and is soooooooannoying, she has to make sure everyone acknowledges her presence when she comes to work like she is the grand pu-bah. She is cheap on the portions she gives. Once time I was there and started to cough and she just looked over at me like she was disgusted by it or something. Anyways you'll know which one she is because she will always as you if you like an orange!
I am not sure what happened to this restaurant. For years this was one of my favorite places to eat but the last two times I attempted to eat there I was hit with an odor. Something has gone really wrong in the kitchen of this once-fine establishment.
If you decide to visit and they have corrected whatever was causing the bad odor you will like the food.
Ken of Japans is the best teppan grill i have been to. The food is good qaulity and fresh ...and there is a lot of it ! i have eaten at benihanas and they can't compare .The fried rice is great and i am not a big fried rice fan.
