“Zen Japanese Vegetarian @ Midlink Plaza is now closed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

The entire Midlink building is closed for redevelopment. All tenants have moved out. The owners of Zen are looking for another location. Meanwhile you can try their other restaurant "Herbivore" at Fortune Center (junction of Middle Road and Bencoolen St) - slightly more pricey (even though the ambience isn't any more upmarket), but with many of our favourites from Zen.

“Japanese Vegetarian Food in Singapore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is one of my family's favourite restaurants. We're a vegetarian family, and my kids for some reason love Japanese food. This is one place we keep returning to.
Wouldn't say the food is excellent, but it is good. Our favourite is the dobinmushi - mushroom soup served in a teapot. Great variety.

“Good Vegeterian Japanese Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Being a vegeterian, I felt I would never be able to try Japanese cuisine - except maybe a fried rice or Tempura prepared out of secial request. But thanks to my friend, I discovered this place and just loved it. It gives a fair taste of Japanese food - if not the exact one you would get with non-vegeterian ingredients.
The menu is quite extensive with many set meals to choose from. The presentation is good and portions decent for an individual. The service was also very good - even though it was a Friday evening when i went. I would definetly want to try out other dishes sometime soon.
My suggestion - Do not venture - if you are a meat/sea-food eater. You might not be able to appreciate the place n efforts on the food!!!

“iNTERESTING CHANGE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised with the food here. Very nicely presented but i felt personally were small portions.
However, still worth a visit to see this blend of Japanese-chinese type Vegetarian food. You may have to walk past the Fortune Centre to find it -parking may be difficult but I think there is a parking by the Fortune centre.
THEN WALK into the building and up some steps.

A little bit more expensive than other vege resturants in the area but a bit more classier.
Personal service as you come in. the door to get the menu.

“Japanese Paradise for Veggies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Top class japanese food for vegetarians. Its simplicity of ambiance allows the beauty and tastes of the food, prepared with care and love, to become clear in the Soul of the eater. My children enjoyed and said that they had never ever had such dilicously prepared vegetarian food before. We tried all types and from the whole menu.

No alcoholic drinks, but great selections of non-alcoholic wines and beers, and tea! The team serves very quickly and with elegance. Seems that they all love their job!

Good to make your reservations ahead of time, and please make sure that the management of the restaurant has made the correct notes of your reservations.
