KenShin Asian Diner Ratings and Reviews
The food was very tasty as always. My friend and I go there every month before we go to a little local theater down the street to see a play. I also go there frequently for a quick lunch. It is a great alternative to Chinatown since it is sometimes difficult to park there. We never have difficulty finding street parking at Ken Shin.
I usually enjoy my visits here but it wasn't as great as I have come to expect. Nothing bad just the food was a little off. The spring rolls and the dumplings were a little over cooked and the rice was very sticky. It may have been a bad day but I was not as happy with the overall experience as I usually am.
The food is always great.. I get the same thing every time I visit and Kenshin always allows my substitution at no additional charge. That keeps me coming back. Service is ok where the waitstaff is not always hovering and I like that all the staff stops what they are doing to see to your needs. I would always recommend Kenshin for both lunch and dinner and BYOB makes it well worth the visit. I recently started reserving a table and they always have it ready even if I have made a change in my reservation or come a little later than when I reserved it.
Always a great time going here. The food is always wonderful and BYOB always makes the night go smoothly. Only thing I would say is the appetizer for two could be a little bigger. But the all of the food is great and a delight to choose from.. I highly recommend this place.
Restaurant was empty! Food was good but they clearly wanted to go home as they were cleaning the restaurant as we were eating.
Portions were nice size. Wouldnt eat the sushi, who knows how long it was sitting there.
I'd stick with traditional chinese and you'd be fine
The food here is great. The service not so much. I suggest getting Thai pineapple fried rice. It's amazing. Service was terrible don't know if it was cuz I'm black or it was cause they were understaffed. But seen the waitress come to a table several times and ask how they were doing and never once came to mines to ask how we were doing or give me a refill on my drink.
A friend recommend this place to me. She couldn't stop raving about the food. And now I understand why. We were a party of 9 and the service was great. They offered to place our bottles on ice until we were ready to start drinking.. I had the TNT roll, garlic and shrimp noodles, crab fried rice, and the wings.. and everything was delicious!!!!
When my son and I arrived for a 4pm reservation, we were, quite frankly, a little nervous about staying. We were the only diners in the place and when we entered, it had a kind of funky smell. I think the air was turned up after we were seated. Anyway, we took our chances and we are still talking about how good the food was. For a little joint in Northern Liberties we ate some pretty terrific sushi! I had the pho and it was outstanding as well. We were pleasantly surprised and plan on going back next time we are in that part of the city. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. We were also happy they had the World Cup on the big screen. The food was awesome and VERY REASONABLE!
Food selection and variety at this restaurant is very good, mixing Chines, Japanese, Thai, Korean and Vietnamese influences well, although it is not a fusion cuisine. Prices are moderate, as well and portions are ample. The food was good and service attentive, the only part I found lacking was the ambiance. From the buildup, I would have expected a more posh setting, but we had a good time anyway. I would recommend it as a good place to stop and get a meal, but not necessarily as a "destination" restaurant. If you go, try the bubble teas. Very creative.
A group of six of us went for dinner on a Saturday night. Plenty of seating, not too noisy. Overall, it was good, but nothing special. They were out of the lettuce wraps. The appetizers were good, the mei fun was very good, but the sushi was pretty much bland and flavorless. A bit disappointing.
My girl friend and I just graduated from Temple and were seeing each other for the last time before she leaves for Stanford, CT and me to NYC. KenShin gave us a great place to meet and enjoy good food and relive memories. She likes chinese food and I love sushi, so who could not have asked for a better place!
