    We would have like clean plates to eat the sashimi and sushi, which was our last dish. Service was efficient, staff were friendly, we liked the food.

About the restaurant

I think I'm turning Japanese.

From the endearingly giggly service to the tea-light-lit tables and palate tickler of silky potato with mayo, Zen’s little shopfront is a charmer. Meaning kindness and goodness, Zen Japanese represents exactly that. This little haven is the perfect spot to catch up with a friend after a busy week.

Continuously seeking improvements, these guys are not simply working towards becoming a great restaurant, but also creating a memorable place for their customers to keep coming back to.

Best dish: Sizzling beef teriyaki with grilled vegetables.
