Kenichi Asian Bistro is located at 270 Shrewsbury St. in Worcester and opened in March. The name is a combination of co-owner Kenny Huang (“Ken”), and 1 (“ichi”), “…because we are number one,” co-owner Jain “Jimmy” Hu adds.

“Kenny has been a sushi chef for 10 years and I’ve worked in restaurants for 20 years. We love Worcester and Shrewsbury St. allows for a lot of opportunities,” Hu says.

“Great prices and the freshest food make Kenichi different than other Asian restaurants,” Hu says. The menu offers a variety of Asian food including hot and cold apps, sushi, makimonos, entrees (chicken, beef, duck, noodles, and more), and lunch specials. Prices range from $3 – $24. Kenichi has a full bar surrounded by dark wood and bamboo-covered walls and furniture.

Kenichi is open Mon – Thurs, 11am – 10pm, Fri and Sat.,11am – 1am, & Sunday: 11:30am – 10:00pm. Call 508-926-8622 for more information or visit
