Critic Reviews for Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Kantaro's antics and foodie visions are totally bizarre.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

It's about as close as you can get to actual food porn without genitals getting involved, and every 24-minute episode is as ridiculous and beautiful as it is educational.

Combination sitcom and food show is delightfully bonkers.

Mar 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Kantaro is simply the most fun a foodie can have and will appeal to a much broader audience as well. It's quirky, hilarious, superbly acted, and full of the most delectable desserts.

Jan 29, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Few of these shows have effectively captured the spark that the subject deserves, the joyous sensation of biting into a souffle or licking the cream off an eclair. None, that is, until Netflix's new original series, Kantaro: The Sweet Toothed Salaryman.

    It’s a really original way to learn and discover (traditional) japanese desserts (?????????) i really enjoy this show and laugh a couple of time!! The actor is really good too!!!! I recommend!!

    I absolutely loved Kantaro. It's an absurd mix of excellent foodie material, extremely precise narration, japanese quirks, Tokyo roundabouts, comedy gold and some of the trippier scenes I've seen in a while. The acting is also very entertaining, the main actor is a well reputed kabuki personality (kabuki is a traditional type of theater in Japan very noisy and exaggerated) and that shows in is hilarious tête à tête with sweets. Highly recommended.
