Fantastic

It is difficult to find world class food in Panama City, but Zk is one of the best restaurants I have found in Panama. They have an excellent choice of food and the cocktails were great as well. Expect to pay around $50 per person for food and drinks. Will visit again soon.

The restaurant was clean but the sushi selection was just mediocre but I do not think this is the town for sushi. The edamame was without salt so I don't think they understand Japanese cuisine very well.

Love the japanese-peruvian mix, really well executed here. I strongly recommend the outside area as the inside gets a bit too noisy.

Went there with a date on a Thursday. The lobster rolls were decent. Atmosphere and ambiance was nice. The music was a little strange for a higher end sushi restaurant. If they played a more chill Buddha bar type music it would of made the experience better. Check came to $80 for dinner and a few drinks.

To come across such high-end service in a country like Panama was a delightful surprise. The waiter was attentive but not smothering. He was knowledgeable about the menu and could recommend items easily based on our dietary requirements. The food was well presented and absolutely delicious. We ordered more than we could eat only because we wanted to try as... More

The restaurant has been in the market for a long time. It used to be called Sake. One of the few restaurants in Panama that always maintains its high quality level. The menu is vast, options for sushi lovers but as well some other dishes for people who are not into sushi. I will always be coming back to eat... More

Very smart, clean, elegant and stylish surroundings with a convivial atmosphere. This restaurant has some unusual and inventive sushi roll offerings which might not be to everyones taste, but I loved all that I tried. Great service, great sushi, will visit again.

The reason that we dined at ZK was due to their high rating here on Trip Advisor. We called and made reservations, but they weren't necessary at 7pm since Panamanians eat dinner very late! We were seated right away and yet somehow in an empty restaurant waited close to 10 minutes for drinks and waters. They also weren't willing to... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is interesting an elegant, but the food was unimpressive. Prices were high and dishes were small, which in my opinion is fine if the quality is excellent, but that is not the case here. We got mostly a selection of rolls, which were flavorless and much of the fish was dried out. I went expecting... More

Went there with the family, did enjoy the elegant atmosphere and and good sushi. The service is very good, especially compared with other places in Panama. Fast, quality, you have them all. Of course price is high, but it worth.
