Description: Zen was Malta's first Japanese restaurant and it is still widely regarded to be the best, with a wide selection of specialities and delicacies including miso soup, sushi, sashimi, vegetable & prawn tempura, as well as fish, meat and vegetarian dishes traditionally cooked and served in our Teppanyaki private room. The contemporary style of the restaurant blends effortlessly with the chic menu, providing an all-round, Japanese-style dining experience. Japanese cuisine is a ritual in itself - a celebration of time-honoured traditions, fresh ingredients and charming hospitality. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to guide you - whether this is your first taste of Japanese cuisine or the latest of many!

This place has the most expertise it seems when it comes to sushi. We once had Teppanyaki also, in the Teppanyaki room, nice quiet environment, it was good, not cheap, but good. By the Portomasao marina it is a good location. The staff always seem polite, happy and attentive.

This restaurant is fantastic. Go there and have a great Japanese meal where the girls are dressed beautifully and everyone is so freindly. The chef was great (new I think) on the Teppanyaki with a great sense of humour and lovely food.
