I'm surprised about the reviews that this place gets. It is expensive and the portions are not generous. Granted, its location in the monastery square is very tempting. Still, there are better sushi restaurants around.

I went to Zuka for a friend's birthday and, although the food was good, service was a disaster. We waited 10 minutes to have our drinks, and 15 more to place our order. We were five persons and did not ask tons and tons of food, nor special dishes: we had to wait on average 20 minutes between each course,... More

Sunday evenings are busy in San Cugat, but we were out early and got a table at the terrace. The sushi dishes were exciting and different from what we have had before. Tasty and delicious! Both banana desserts were delightful too, highly recommendable. On the negative side the noodle dish for one of the kids arrived 5 min before the... More

I have been twice to Zuka, both times for the lunch menu and both times with business guests. The menu was good, price was a bit expensive, I guess, but not excessive and this is Sant Cugat!! Our waiters were ok but did seem a little uninterested, just really bringing in and clearing the plates. Dont expect conversations about cooking... More

The interior looks very modern, visitors sit around the area were the cooks prepare the sushi. The menu offers a great variety of japanese and asian dishes. This raises your expectations. But then comes the disappointment when they serve your food and it appears to be an average japanese restaurant. Acceptable cooking but nothing special, so I guess they charge... More

To be honest this is the first sushi restaurant that we have tried in Spain. We started with prawn tempura which was a little under cooked - 9 Euros for 5 prawns. We then had a share plate, that had some basic rolls, a few pieces of sashmi and nigiri- 23 Euros. A glass of house red was 4 Euros.... More
