I went there for dinner & all the signature dishes were truly stunning & mouthwatering, but other dishes were average & below my expectation for this kind of restaurant and it was not worth the price paid at all. However, their signature sushi was worth the price with uni & quail egg, truly amazing. In addition, the service there still... More

The Palace Sushi Zen always served good quality food but the service has improved a lot with more friendly, less arrogant waiters. The service is a little too quick for my taste but it is always good. No surprise, prices are a bit high for international standards, although average for Switzerland.

I was in the mood for Sushi, love the California Rolls LA and sashimi, enjoyed my favorite variety of sashimi and sushi. I think the sashimi master must knows his way around a fish. Very slow service, but friendly.

Went there with my colleagues after a workshop in Lausanne. The Place is nicely decorated and has a good vibe. All the sushis I tried were very tasty and nicely presented. I would definitely recommend this place for a business dinner or lunch.

If you're desperate for good sushi, Sushi is the best option around. The decor is lovely; service is attentive and sushi is very good. They use too much rice in the makis though, but that seems to be common here in Switzerland.

We went to this Japanese restaurant. The menu was all about 'concept', and sleazy presentation. Alas... This tofu dish was the most bland thing we ever put into our mouths.. No taste whatsoever, just boiled in its water. Sashimi was cut as huge chunks. Chicken teriyaki was so bland and the skin was loosely attached to the meat- it should... More

Everyone is pleased, the raw fish, meat or vegetable lover's requirements and gustatory sense will be satisfied.Astonishment is the key word of this culinary quest, our aim is to extract you from your daily reality and to offer you a parenthesis of discoveries and change of scenery…Let yourselves be carried by novelty!ken kawakami
