It was passion that made us open a unique restaurant in Cracow, which can draw up guests to aromatic lemon grass and coconut milk of Thailand, aniseed and cinnamon China, spicy and lime- smelling South America, cream and garlic France or to Japan - full of freshness, health and simplicity. All these tastes, how unfamiliar to us, we have gathered in one place. Here, without leaving town we can experience a real feast of colors, smells and tastes… we can taste fresh fish brought in from distant seas, rare fruit, sauces or meats. Apart from exceptional and unique taste of sushi , our chef Tomasz Lapinski takes us on a light and sophisticated journey through almost all continents. A great advantage of our restaurant is, apart from already well known in Poland sushi , a very rich main courses and starters menu coming not only from Japan, but also from Asia, both Americas and Europe. We give special pietism to desserts on our menu, as we wish to show that a dessert does not mean a cheesecake or an apple pie. We are here for you - let us then take you into the magic world of glorious culinary experience…

We didn't book but walked in and asked if we could get a table (Saturday night). There were no tables available upstairs but we could sit at the bar. For me that worked better in my opinion, I prefer to see everything being prepared in front of me when it comes to places like this. Food was genuinely sensational, the... More

I've been a long time customer of Zen (3 years now) so it's about time I post a review. The sushi is nothing short of perfection. Creative maki rolls enlightening the most avid of sushi-goer, the service is impeccable, and the value is excellent. You don't need to think about whether fish is fresh, the choya is wonderful, and the... More

Feeling like a sushi all of sudden in the middle of Krakow. This place made my day :) Great atmosphere, great decoration, very nice staff, and good -I mean good- sushi prepared right in front of you. No worries about the prices, you choose what to eat so basically you choose how much you pay. yummy!

High quality raw materials is number one, and they delivered on that. Presentation was simple, but delicate. I had a sashimi plate. Service was excellent. Nice decor, with a film running with scenes from everyday Japan, as you at in the sushibar. That was nice entertainment for a single customer, but since it was without sound you will not be... More

First, the good: Presentation/ambiance is nice. Clean, classy, elegant. I've lived all over Japan for over 10 years, so when it comes to Japanese themed restaurants, there are certain aesthetic points I come to expect. This place, meets many of them. However, that's where the good points run out. The quality of the sushi, is good. However, when you consider... More

After half an hour of searching for youmiko sushi with no success we ended up here. I am so glad we did. Our sushi was made to include/exclude anything we wanted. I'm disappointed I can't have sushi like this back home
