Legit Japanese restaurants aren’t hard to come by in Hong Kong. Finding ones that are within a reasonable price range can be tough though. There is a huge range of Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong ranging from super cheap, low quality all you can eat joints to ball so hard, fresh to death, premium quality Japanese food. If you’re looking for something priced somewhere in between, I would recommend Senzuru Japanese Restaurant.
Senzuru is located in a comparably desolate mall in Hong Kong called Harbour Plaza Metropolis in Hung Hom. The quality of the food here is actually mad decent and their prices are not as high as some of their Japanese competitors situated in Central or Tsim Sha Tsui. I’m assuming rent and convenience plays a major factor. The atmosphere is also pretty mellow and chill with a few empty tables surrounding us. Apparently, you can throw in a little karaoke if you book one of the private rooms if you wish.
The menu consists of a huge range of Japanese customary dishes including Sushi, Sashimi, Kushiyaki, Teppanyaki, Tempura, Udon, Rice Dishes, Shabu Shabu, and an entire section dedicated to Hiroshima oysters. We ordered something from practically every section of the menu and it was all done quite well. The food was fresh, tasty and satisfying. There wasn’t really anything on the menu that was amazing or anything that I got me hooked longing for more of though. Senzuru is more of a good, consistent, and reliable Japanese restaurant.
Mini Hiroshima Oyster Pot Cooked in Miso Sauce ($280 HKD or $36 USD). Mmmm I lurveee oysters. I usually prefer freshly shucked raw oysters. These oysters were plump, juicy and soaked up all that flavorful sauce!
Cold Udon ($120 HKD or $15 USD). Eugene and I have been on this cold noodle rampage lately. Cold noodles are just so refreshing and hit the spot on a hot humid day. Senzuru’s noodles definitely did it for us and had the perfect chewy consistency paired with a simple yet delicious dipping sauce.
