Went to Zk on recommendation of a friend - so glad we did. The food and service were excellent. Ceviche was some of the best I'd ever had. Enjoyed their special twist on traditional dishes. Most staff members speak fluent English. Elegant upscale atmosphere. Appropriate pricing. Will definitely return for more.

Never tried before when its name was Sake, I don't know what and if changed, in any case is a positive experience: despite the fact it was a quite large group (>20) service was efficient and without huge delay serving people, quite good cocktails and quite extensive variety of dishes. As already seen in different jap restaurants in Panama, big... More

We were vacationing in Panama and went to ZK not knowing what to expect. The atmosphere is elegant and the food is outstanding. If we are fortunate enough to return to Panama City we will definitely return to ZK. It was among the best food and certainly the best sushi we have ever eaten. Also the wait staff was very... More

This place is in a mall, it's ok nothing great. They charge a lot for sushi but I didn't find it to be worth the prices they were charging, plus not the typical flavor a of the same rolls found back home, it's ok but nothing worth going out of your way for.

Service was excellent, the place was fully booked at lunch time, but they managed to convince us to stay. The menu is attractive though we had a huge variety of sushi for the 5 of us, it was very good. Next time I will ask for some cuisine warm dishes.

First of all very attentive stuff and sophisticated design. About the food... Sushi and rolls were excellent. The other dishes I would rate as ok. Soup was too salty and hot ceviche was with undercooked octopus and very greasy.

The sushi was good, affordable prices, the bottled water expensive, $3.00 - comparing to Mojito - $5.50. Nice sitting area outside. 10% tip ( gratuity service) added to your bill.

More than a century ago, the Peruvian government invited Japanese families to relocate to help develop the country's agricultural industry. In addition to their hard work, the immigrants brought their cuisine that helped create a fusion of tastes that are among the most celebrated in South America. Zk does a brilliant job of bringing forth a vast array of sushi... More

The decor is very simple but effective. There is an inside and outside area. We sat at the Sushi bar and enjoyed watching the chefs creating the various dishes. The Ceviche's are very good. There are a lot of choices from the rolls we sampled were very good and unique. Good service. Good Value.
