My friend and I visited this sushi hangout. This very high end and the quality of the sushi reflected that.Also the area where this place is located is very upscale. The service including drinks was par excellence. If you are look for good sushi In a wonderful area,then I definitely recommend ask Nikkei Cuisine.

This was the highest rated Japanese restaurant in Panama City, and close to my hotel. I was a little surprised when I walked in, and asked to sit at the sushi bar, to then see not a single visible person of Japanese descent anywhere in sight. I was also somewhat disappointed in the lack of variety of available fish on... More

It's high end for Panana, and it's worth it. I was in Panama city for 3 nights and I went twice to eat the same thing. The sashimi (mixed: tuna, maguro, salmon & octopus) was very fresh and melted in your mouth. I ate the nigiri called unagi kabayaki (eel) - it was great. I'm still salivating thinking about this...

What a great restaurant! New menu with Peruvian choices like causa and corvina a Lo macho, but my favorite are the sushi rolls!! I have tried many at the restaurant and take home and the ingredients and quality are superb. Some great appetizer like the shrimp, edamame, the tuna crisps and even oysters. My favorite is the Zk roll, served... More

It's a nice place with good service. The food is nice although not exceptional by any stretch. The sushi is fresh, the Peruvian ceviche nice, we had a couple of other starters and you can't really complain but nothing stands out. The wasabi was def not freshly grated but rather industrially produced. Very expensive - 110$ for lunch 2 people,... More

Enjoyed lunch here with a group of 8. Some nice plates of Sushi and tempura all round, which turned out to be fairly economical. Pleasant atmosphere and staff but service seemed a bit slow given it was almost empty. Good food nonetheless, I would go back.

We really enjoyed our visit to ZK. We had multiple sushi rolls and a Peruvian fish dish and all were superb. The flaming sushi roll and fish dish - both recommend by our attentive waiter Eric - were fantastic options. Decor and ambience were a little austere but the food and service more than compensated. Best meal in Panama to... More
