We were looking for good takeout for one night of our trip to Kapaa and found Kenji. The burgers were very tasty but a bit on the dry side. A good place for a quick meal.

Had to go on the recommendation of Guy Fieri, Diners, Drive ins and Dives. The place is small inside, picnic tables outside but weather did not permit outside seating. Burgers were delish! Great sauce, burger was very tasty.

Saw the sign, decided to have a burger. Very Hawaiian feeling inside. Open air, covered eating available. Had one of the burgers, fresh made bun. Very good and the covered fries were finger licking good. Wow.

There are a bunch of Kenji Burgers all over the island, so one might assume that they are great. Unfortunately, we ordered a Kauai Grass Fed Burger and a meatless burger and they were both the same: bland, tasteless protein with lots of goopy sauces...to try to add some flavor. This wouldn't be so bad, but when you pay $14 for a burger, I think it is safe to assume you expect something a little special, and this place did NOT deliver. I know, I know, its Kauai and you have to pay more for your food, but we could have gone across teh street to Safeway and bought some ground beef and whipped up a better burger on the BBQ at our condo that would have saved us money and. tasted better as well. Not sure why this place is popular... to me expensive + tasteless is not a formula for success, but maybe they survive just on the first timer tourists who are easily fooled once?More

Kenji burger provides some interesting options from a traditional burger. The one we had was tasty and the service was good. I am accustomed to eating well done burgers and if I were to eat at Kenji again I would be sure to request well...done, as our burger was served med-well done.More

This place was not very good, our order was all wrong. We had to wait for half of our food for over an hour, and then it wasn't right. 2 people in our group of 6 waited an hour for their food and had to...take it to go. This was the worst experience we have ever had.More

We so loved Kenji burger! We love trying triple D restaurants and this one definitely didn't disappoint. We got the coconut shrimp, furikake fries, the kenji burger and the veggie sushi burrito. It was all delicious. The sushi burrito was like one big roll- super...fresh and so good! The fries are droolworthy and the shrimp was amazing. My husband said his burger was awesome. We can't wait to go backMore

Food was delicious and service was quick. Casual small restaurant You place order at counter and they call when your order is ready. They have limited outside seating available and have some inside seating available too. Prices are reasonable for Hawaii. I would recommend the...truffle burger and furikake fries. The restaurant is within walking distance of the Sheraton Coconut Beach Hotel.More

I may have unfairly rated this so-called quick bite restaurant as terrible, since we did not actually eat there. TLDR: We arrived at Kenji Burger, and were totally ignored. We waited patiently for one of the three guys in the kitchen to even acknowledge us,...but the one fellow was intent on producing take-out orders (understandable) and his two companions were just standing around. No one invited us to sit, nor take our order. Needless to say, after waiting for 5 or 6 minutes, we turned around and left. And no one seemed to notice.More

We had seen this place when in Kapa'a when we first got to Kauai so we stopped for lunch here several days later when driving from Hanalei down to Weimea. It is a small burger joint in a shack on the highway in Kapa'a. There...is a small seating area inside, plus seating out front and some seating in a patio in back. We had excellent burgers - we got the Kenji Burger, plus furikake fries. The only negative was the the service seemed a bit weird and not exactly friendly or eager to help (I'm not sure how to describe it but the servers exuded a negative quality without being overtly unfriendly).More

First things first, the staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful! The food was absolutely outstanding. Our party enjoyed an array of burgers and the crab wrap, which were all amazing. Great portion size and flavors were phenomenal! Will definitely recommend and return.

A revisit and the place still offers up excellent grass feed hamburgers. Fries are pretty good and “local” beers in cans are available.

Fries are sour. The burger is worse than McDonald's simple hamburger. I wonder how did they got the ratings.

Had our first burger with a fried egg! It was delicious! Others recommended the Furikake fries, but there wasn't much of it on the fries. A bit disappointed in that. The staff was amazing and very friendly. Definitely recommend!
