The one at Galleria Esplanad had really fresh tasting sushi. The service was great. The only minus was the atmosphere. It is located in the shopping mall and it certainly has a shopping mall atmosphere.

Zen Sushi is owned by a Finnish-Japanese couple, who really know their sushi. Two locations, Galleria Esplanad (aka Kämp Galleria) and a small sushi bar on Snellmaninkatu in Kruununhaka. Always fresh fish, perfectly seasoned rice and good value for you money. Sushi is always made on location, after the order. Lunch time is busy in Kämp Galleria, but that is... More

Service ok, soya too strong, maki/nigiri set was not the best, avoid taking squid. Only the miso soup and tea was good.

Zen Sushi is located in what would be the Financial District of Helsinki, if there was such definition. So you are likely to see a lot of bankers, consultants and similar folks having a semi-quick bite amongst co-workers or friends from other companies. It's located on the upper floor of an upscale mall, with glass ceiling, making it feel spacious... More

Zen Sushi is on the second floor of a rather fancy shopping centre in the centre of Helsinki but it's surprisingly quiet and peaceful there. The choice of sushi is quite good and prices are reasonable. The only slight downside is the time it took to prepare our order, but as we were not in a hurry, that wasn't a... More

I went to Zen based on a quick scan of recommendations here, and am staying nearby so it was very convenient. The staff was friendly, though the food delivery was slow for a sushi place. I was there on a Monday night, which might have contributed to Zen's shortcomingings; Mondays in Helsinki can be very quiet. My sushi, when it... More

Zen Sushi in Kämp Galleria (on the 2nd floor of the shopping centre) is definitely my favourite sushi place in Helsinki so far. The place looks neat and even stylish- I really enjoy the open space in the middle of the shopping centre. The staff is preparing the sushi behind an open counter in the middle of the restaurant- so... More

This is a nice sushi place in the kämp galleria shopping center. Kämp Galleria was just renovated and that did marvels for Zen Sushi. I'd give 3 and a half stars, but rounded it upwards. Deco is nice, 2nd flor in the shopping center and food good. So nothing fancy, reasonably priced and there was a nice kids playing area... More

Ok sushi but there's something wrong with this place - cold and uninviting decor?
