It's a great find, to have a small genuine Japanese restaurant near the hub of Subiaco. It's within 2 minutes walking distance of the The Regal Theatre and the Subiaco train station, just need be prepared to look it up on the map as it's on Seddon St, which is basically a laneway running through a car park. We are... More

I've eaten here plenty of times now and don't usually review but the food is always so good I had to. Sashimi is world class and the flavours of all dishes have been excellent - even compared to the trips to Japan I do.

Dropped in for a family dinner tonight with 2 little lads (grade 2 & pre-school age). I can't rave about the service enough. It was warm, attentive and respectful (in true Japanese style)! The kids were treated like princes with their own special bowls, cups and even straws (without having asked). If you have kids you know that the special... More

It may not be the fanciest but it is simply the best! If you are looking for authentic Japanese food at very reasonable prices, then go no further than Hideki San's Zen Restaurant. It is clear Hideki is passionate about his food. Experience beautifully presented Sashimi, Sushi dishes, delicious hot pots, sukiyaki and the best pork belly ramen ever! We... More

Not so zen! Friendly service however this is a very poor showing for Japanese cuisine. Iron chef be shamed! Basically only "teriyaki" , Katsu and poor sushi. I suspect the chef is untrained. The worst Japanese I have had.

Zen is a favourite restaurant of our family's and has been for years. The menu has shrunk somewhat from years gone by however we still go for the good quality Japanese food. Try the salmon wings from the chef's recommended list. And there's nothing better that the sukiyaki on a cold winter's night. Lovely chewy and flavoursome Udon noodles. Friendly... More

A quiet Sunday evening meal -- outstanding scallops are the key point of this review -- not reconstituted - but lots of real tasty ones !! Happy with our visit -- would we go again -- well this was our second visit in 2 months - so obviously -- yes we would.
