Description: Irashsaïmasé...We are pleased to welcome you at palace sushi-zen, whose philosophy is to reinvent traditional japanese cuisine. The constant quest of an itamaesan is to modernise his way of cooking by intimately combining aesthetics and taste. The pleasure of the eye being the first step of a tasting, the former has to be fulfi lled in order for tastebuds to begin the unexpected journey this "avant-garde" cuisine invites you to.The neophyte will become initiated to the blending of flavours and colours while the tsu (true connoisseur) will appreciate these audacious compositions.The creation of a new culinary atmosphere implies a mixing of cultures and the elaboration of a new kind of dish. 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

“Excellent sushis/slow service”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

The Palace Sushi Zen is easily the best sushi place for miles around, although a tick on the expensive side. Their caviar and quail egg nigiri for example is terrific......

...if you are patient enough to wait for half an hour for the staff to take your order. Service is not unfriendly, but Jeez these people are slow.

“As Sushi As It Gets”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Combination of friendly service, immaculate presentation, absolutely fresh raw materials, laid-back ambiance and, most importantly, the craftmanship of the Japanese chefs make the Place Sushi Zen one of the best places, if not the best, to treat you with sushi in Lausanne. Booking advisable.

“tasty but overpriced”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We went there for lunch. I must admit the service is poor. Did not change the glass which was broken, waiters were unfriendly.

Lunch menu is 36 for a miso soup which was quite good and 9 sushi and maki overall, which was not enough. So I think it is overpriced. However, the fish was very fresh and tasty.

“Great food”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Food great
Presentation perfect
Staff very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu
Atmosphere cool
Chair maybe a bit unconfortable if sat more than 20 minutes
Price high, but probably still the best place to eat best sushi around.

Reviewed February 24, 2013

Best sushis in Lausanne!! Do not go if you do not like sushis; they do not serve other Japanese food.
