Fourth time here, first time we've had takeaway. Found out today that there is 15% off for takeaway during lunch hours. We've been here pre and post baby, both has been easy. Service is always the most polite in the whole Illawarra. The food is extremely tasty, gets to you in about 15 minutes. We've had the Bento boxes, banquets,... More

What a difference 12 months makes...had a great lunch time meal at this restaurant.But my experience on Saturday night 8/11 was very disappointing. Menus where filthy dirty, main meals where crap, could have got better at local food court deserts quoted on menu did not contain ingredients offered..rock hard frozen raspberries and fresh strawberries stated, pancake was like rubber..never again

Being there for lunch in August 2012, it was quite windy and it had been raining. The foldable windows were half open to let some fresh air in whilst sheltering the inside. A short stroll down the road and you are at the beach. Can almost smell the sea from the restaurant. Food was very fresh, presentation was excellent. Best... More

We had the teppanyaki at the BBQ, which makes it a bit of fun as they cook the food in front of you and add some theatre by throwing some of the dishes at you. We went in on a Sunday night without a booking and it was no problem. The staff were very helpful, allowing us to swap some... More

We went to the teppanyaki for my son's 11th birthday. It was lots of fun. The chef was fantastic, very interactive. Everyone gets involved. The chef made sure my son felt very special in his special day. My only negative would be that there is not a lot of food. So, don't go there if you are really hungry or... More

I visited Zen X in June 2012 with my family. We made a booking for Teppanyaki at 7.30, and when we arrived were told that the Teppanyaki bar was still being used and that we'd have to eat our first courses at a table near the front of the restaurant. As we sat there eating our starters, we could see... More

Had lunch at the Sushi Bar a few days after opening its doors. The food is fresh and tasty. You can watch the preparation, the kitchen is open space and the bar around it.

Zen X lived up to our expectations of great fresh Japanese food. Fast efficient service. We didn't have the teppenyaki, however its up the rear of the restaurant and on the occasions we have been, has had a full quota of various people enjoying themselves. Definitely will keep going back. The servings are large , so don't over order to... More
