My absolutely favourite sushi restaurant in Malta. The service is always welcoming and quick and the food has so far never let me down. I highly recommend the Sake no Tataki or Maguro no Tataki for starters and their rolls and sashimi for main. The always have some great warm mains, I especially like Sake no Teriyaki. I would recommend... More

I love Japanese food and lived for 12 years in Asia and I am going here again tonight. More authentic the Thai food at Blue Elephant next door and I know becuase... More

Worth a specific mention was the exceptional special of the day ... the black cod !!!. All washed down with some cold sake and the final pleasant surprise .... Nikka ....a... More

I walked in at 22:30h, and although the kitchen was about to close, service was great. THe sushi plate I ordered was worth the price. One thing did not make me happy: the tuna temaki was the smallest one I've ever had ( and most expensive one btw....6,95€!!!!!!!). Otherwise, it is worth a visit! The atmosphere of the place is...

Dear Tripadvisor Reviewer. Thank you for visiting us. It is no secret to anyone that the reason why customers choose to be seated at the Sushi Bar is to view the Sushi Chefs at work rather than looking at the sea…. Reason why we do specifically ask all our customers where they would like to be seated upon reservation. It... More

Went here, not only once, but twice during our last long weekend on Malta. I've been to Japan for a dozen of times for holidays the last couple of years, and mainly for the food (and of course friends), and I can honestly say, this place has the best japanese food I've ever tried outside Japan. Super fresh, and some... More

To be quite frank I've tried all the sushi restaurants in Malta and none of them come close to the level of excellency Zen has to offer, most notably the quality of food but one cannot forget to mention their service too. Although the most expensive, it surely justifiable.
