This is the first time we have dined here. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity through Fork to try restaurants. We will definitely return. The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the ambiance was excellent. The food was hot and tasty and well presented. Well done to all.
We had a lovely dinner, fresh delicious sashimi, the beef ribs were amazing and tempura nice and crispy. Only let down pork belly dish was quite spicy which is ok but we asked the waiter if it was suitable for kids which it wasn’t so just beware. All in all a great place to eat. And generous serves.
From the warm friendly welcome to the attentive customer service this charming little restaurant was fabulous. The food was delicious and good wine list. Highly recommend!
The food was disappointing, too much meat and hardly any vegetable. Service was slow but adequate, not enough staff for a full restaurant. We will find a different Japanese to try next time
Glad to discover a new favourite Japanese restaurant. The freshest sashimi I’ve had in a long time. Will be back soon! And even better that they are BYO, so we could bring our personal choices.
We were given a private room, really liked it and the food was good. Portions were of fair size and taste good. Service was friendly. Tempura was not oily and fresh. Sashimi was excellent
Great attentive service and delicious food.
We found it on the net and so went with no preconceived ideas. The 30% discount was a deciding factor. As a party of 5, we all thought our choices were delicious. We will return.
This is a great restaurant which has always provided excellent food and service and New Years Eve was again amazing. We usually get the bento box which is so good but tonight we decided to order a few other dishes like the vegetarian teriyaki which was amazing and the tuna salad was just too good - would highly recommend to all my friends and looking forward to a great 2020 !!!
The service is very good. The food is above average but not great. 1.86% card payment surcharge (for both debit and credit cards) seems unreasonable.
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.
The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The menu was was good and the food arrived quite quickly. Ours meals were delicious and we were very satisfied when we finished our meals.
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 !!!

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.
