“Fantastic authentic cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I found out about this wonderfully authentic delicious Japanese restaurant in Jl Drupardi last night. I have been travelling to Japan for more than 25years and can testify that Zen sushi in Bali is as good as any restaurant of a similar type in Tokyo. Great taster and excellent value. Try the Volcano roll and wonderful varieties of sashimi and sushi amongst a huge choice on the menu. Owner Craig is very charming and is very happy to suggest from the menu...., We will go and back and back. Highly recommended

“Ho ciak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Ho ciak is referred to hokkian chinese language wich means very delicious.
Yes the food was very delicious, with nice athmosphere. The only complain is they just have one servant so the service will be not maximize.

Well if only the owner open to the more strategic place, im sure the restaurant will be very crowded.

Thank you for visiting us and enjoying our fine food. I am sorry that we were understaffed at your visit but we had a couple of people call in sick with little notice. Not to worry though, everyone is good now and we are ready to take care of a crowd.

“Wonderful Food and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We went to Zen Sushi early in January 2014 with a group of friends and had a great night. I am not familiar with Japanese food but Craig and the helpful staff talked us through the menu and I was guided into finding the perfect dishes for me. DELICIOUS ! I highly recommend you try and don't be afraid to ask for advice it will be given.

“Service with a Smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Passionate staff welcome you as you enter the new Japanese restaurant, Zen Sushi on easy to find Jalan Drupadi. Bursting with enthusiasm, the service is exceptional and the menu extensive. We enjoyed the delicious Gyoza dumplings as starters and then consumed the flavorous chicken teriyaki and a curry. Well done guys, impressive ambience, sophisticated kitchen and great value.
