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 priced menu. I suppose one can say that the food was not horrible, but, considering the price, one would expect much more.

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

I had difficulty finding the restaurant as it is not where the map says it is, but after trying a couple of days in a row, i had lunch there on a recent sunday. most of the food was good, although the maguro sushi was not as fresh as i expected. in fact, a few pieces were dry and one was definitely older than it should have been. however, the meal overall was quite good, and i tried several appetizers, the sushi and noodles. the service was attentive and the plates were very well presented. it is expensive, but not outrageously so. i am hopeful that i may find a better japanese restaurant in phnom penh, but so far i have not.

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.
