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!

Top ratings to this great restaurant! Zen is the perfect place to meet for both business and pleasure. Delightful Service all the way from booking to dessert. Booked the Teppanyaki room as a "chambre separee" and we had lovely night with fantastic food as well as entertainment from a private chef.

This is definitely the most authentic Japanese dining experience you can find in Malta. Have been to this restaurant several times now and both the service and the food have always been exceptional. My love for this restaurant only grew after I visited Japan and I can assure that the food is as authentic as it gets in Malta. I... More

I have dined twice in Zen and both occasions used the Teppanyaki room which was a wonderful experience. The first occasion was for my friend and her daughter who had a birthday treat. The warmth of the welcome by the staff was lovely and the ambience is to die for. We ordered huge mixed starters and then enjoyed 3 different... More

Like three years ago we first walked in because of the fabulous location in Portomaso but turned around & out after a quick check of the menu which was ridiculously pricy! Since then the Zen changed ownership I guess cause prices are totally ok as far as value per money now. We were seat in a corner table with a... More

Liked everything about this Sushi bar, the quality of the food was excellent and the two male staffers the most helpful we have ever found in a Sushi bar. Don't pass by without having a few tasty bites.

We had a good evening at Zen, enjoyed the show of the chef cooking. Food was excellent. Service was good but slow, not always someone there when you need them. Its not a cheap restaurant and they charge a lot for a bowl of beans served as pre starter. Also we dined as a group and they seemed to struggle... More

Still sitting here after-enjoying this meal. Somewhat pricy but you get excellent quality and service. The fried rice with tuna belly starter might be the highlight of the evening.
