The good points - The sushi bar is good, the atmosphere is good, the food is fresh and well presented. The waitress wore a traditional kimono. Good selection of all the main Sushi dishes. It... More

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.

We have lived in Malta for about 9 months, and have become regulars at this amazing sushi restaurant. The service and atmosphere continue to be top notch, as is the sushi selection. They use only the finest ingredients, choosing to take an item off the menu versus serving something below standards. And though we are immensely sad when the softshell... More

Thanks to the staff at Zen for a fabulous evening out! A special thanks to Alvyn the Teppenyaki master who made the evening especially fun for our 6 & 4 year old who had a fabulous first experience of Teppenyaki!
