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.

Small restaurant. Decent price. Good value. Geared towards take-out.

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.

I always go here at least once a month and normally select the same item off the menu. Today I tried a different item and did not enjoy it at all. I should probably stick with what I like and not try new things.

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
Nothing special
