Food was great as usual but Service was just ok. We asked for sushi first followed by other entrees then mains. We had to ask for the sushi after entrees and only one of the sushi arrived, I asked about the other and was told they would get them period who took the order! Eventually it came. The atmosphere was noisy and cramped. Tis what it tis
Fantastic experience! Lovely staff and great food, would highly recommend.
Staff excellent; welcoming and attentive. Seafood tempura - fish was not fresh.; the rest of dish OK. Seafood noodle dish should be called mussel noodles- heaps of mussels & a few prawns / calamari.
My favourite restaurant - great bento boxes, incredible wagyu steak, welcoming service. We had the Teriyaki bento and the Kensiki bento and both great - this is a 10 for me !!!
Everything was amazing.The staff friendly , made sure our water was filled at all times. The food was excellent, very hot, tasty & beautifully presented. We all had a perfect night.
Very nice food at a great price
Best Japanese. Wonderful fresh food. Excellent service, great subdued atmosphere. Not frantic and noisy. Lovely evening.
Nice intimate dinning space
Came here for my brother's birthday and the food and service was just exceptional - really my favourite restaurant for any occasion :-) Will be coming back !!!
The seafood was fresh and everything was very tasty. Also great service. Our new favourite Japanese Resturant in the area.
The staff and service was excellent. Food was delicious and very authentic to Japanese restaurants in Japan. And it was nice and cosy for a quiet special evening.
Waited close to an hour for even the appetizer (sashimi & sushi) to be served. Food was ok. Slightly above average. Portions generous
Enjoyable meal. The food was well presented and tasty. Would recommend this cosy Japanese restaurant to others.
Great service for my partner’s birthday. Fantastic food.
Have been to Zen on many occasions and enjoyed the dining experience. There has been a change in ownership with more focus on profit than the customer. That’s how it felt when charged extra for requesting the GF option despite the dishes being presented with a GF option. We were given a discount when we complained but it just didn’t feel right.
Thank you for a lovely evening although we probably ordered too much delicious food
Amazing food. Great service. Neighbourhood gem.
We have been here many times. The food is excellent but the portion is rather small on some dishes. The shasime is fresh and excellent.
Delicious food and excellent service.

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.
