We just left Zen Sai. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Hector, Jose the manager and Juanita. The service including the food was amazing. My husband and I were looking for a place to spend our anniversary. It was the perfect spot for a Japanese fusion oasis.

Having got engaged on Miami Beach at sunset, my fiance booked this restaurant for dinner and it really topped the evening off! There were 6 of us and our waiters Alex and Alicia couldn't be more attentive; bottles of complementary sake and an amazing mix of Japanese and Asian cuisine followed. The best bit was finding out Zen Sai also... More

Service nice but wait for the food and drinks far too long when the restaurant has only 4 tables to wait. Grilled Cod was delicious though. Would I go back? No, I think there many more restaurants in Miami Beach that do much better and are less costly.

After reading very good comments about this place, my husband and I decided to try it. We were staying at a hotel across the road. The menu offers different asian fusion "tapas" style options. From cod to octopus or squid; rolls such as the prosciutto or eel ones were amazing. Some dishes are cooked in the robata oven, which gives... More
