Enjoyed dinner here twice during our stay in St Julians. On both occasions the food was very good and authentic japanese. The chefs in particular are very good and prepare everything freshly to order. Sashimi quality was very good, rolls were excellent and the tempura...very good.
We sat at the sushi bar and social distancing was maintained.
The one area in which this restaurant is let down is the drinks selection and in particular the Sake selection which was very limited and even so most sakes were not in stock. The same applied for the Japanese beer selection.More
Had a fabulous time at the sushi bar
We watched the all Japanese chef team using thier skills in sashimi and sushi making.
Tempura 🍤 miso salmon, teriyaki beef and a selection of sashimi including tuna Toro (belly)
A gastro journey of tastes
If you...like Japanese this is a must to visit 👍
calm atmosphere in the kitchen with the chef's is as the name of the restaurant suggests Z EN
5 STAR experience!
I had accidentally booked a dinner for two - regular menu; but wanted the Teppanyaki. The staff - the lead waitress particularly - accommodated for this, was so very kind from start to finish!
The teppanyaki was perfect, a professional and delicious...experience!
The sushi was faultless. All the food tasted fresh, and handled expertly.
Fantastic experience all round, from great attentive staff, lovely ambience and top quality food.
Would highly recommend!More
Food cooked to perfection. Wish the chef was more open to speaking with his customers. But he otherwise succeeds where it counts. It's great that we have teppanyaki in Malta and that the chef is Japanese.
We went for dinner and chose Tepenyaki Menu, service was great and friendly thanks to Aline, thanks to chef Junji for delicious food, it wasamazing to watch him while he was cooking. We ordered beef fillet and rib eye with vegetables and soup. as a...dessert Chocolate mousse and Japanese mille. everything is delicious.More
Zen was already on the list before we arrived in Malta and it was well worth it.
We booked to eat at the Teppanyaki bar but of course had to start with some sushi. We also ordered some Gyoza and Japanese spring rolls all of...which were delicious!
The main event of the Teppanyaki show cooking was incredible. I ordered scallops, my husband had the pork fillet and both were cooked to perfection. Really enjoyed the warm Sake to compliment our food.
We were far too full afterwards to order dessert but the ones we saw looked very impressive.
All the team were very helpful and attentive. Really enjoyed the whole experience 😊
Definitely worth a visit!More
