“A great Japanese restaurant, fresh food and professional/very helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

In a very a nice convenient location, very close to Rome historical centre, Zen Sushi has a great menu, from traditional sushi and sashimi to warm dishes, tempura, etc. Good desserts, great wine list and typical jabanese beer.
The staff is vey nice and helpful.
I strongly recommend this place, one of my favourites in town.

“Very Expensive but trendy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

Sushi is a most expensive cuisine in Rome, those from the states might faint at the prices of their beloved California rolls. However if you are out and looking for a trendy and romantic restaurant with a change from the Italian, Zen is the perfect solution, frequented by the rich and famous, it comes equipped with modern art, a sushi bar and stylish dishes. however, be warned the bill will certainly show the reason why Zen looks the way i does. A good place for a splurge meal, but not for the tourists or sushi lovers in general.

“Where I take my friends when they come to Rome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2010

There are many good sushi places in Rome, and there are many expensive sushi places in Rome. Unfortunately, expensive does not always equal good. In the case of Zen Sushi, the prices are a little higher than some other places around Rome, but so is the quality of the sushi. If you want to be cool, try Hamasei. If you want to go where locals that can afford good sushi go, this is the place. Being in Prati, it is also a bit off the tourist track. Don't let that fool you, though. Without a reservation, you will not get a table. You can always sit at the sushi bar though without having to wait too long.
