Drink orders were taken shortly followed by our food order. Drinks and food were quickly delivered. 3 entree dishes shared amongst the... More

The two of us had dinner on Saturday night. We had mixed sashimi, teriyaki fish, edamame, eggplant and some house red wine. It was all delicious and came to around $90. The service was lovely and we got complimentary dessert. Winning!

The Zen Restaurant is somewhat hidden within a major shopping precinct off Hay Street in Perth, WA. It is worth the effort to find it (the locals can assist if needed) as the food is excellent, the wine list, although small is adventurous and very well priced, and the staff friendly and accommodating. On our recent visit the staff numbered... More

I have been here for lunch many times when travelling in Perth, I find it a consistently good light lunch. It's an easy enough place to have a business lunch and discuss things and not have to talk over others, as well as great place for a social gathering. Food is always good and you can't go past the Benito... More

It's a great find, to have a small genuine Japanese restaurant near the hub of Subiaco. It's within 2 minutes walking distance of the The Regal Theatre and the Subiaco train station, just need be prepared to look it up on the map as it's on Seddon St, which is basically a laneway running through a car park. We are... More

I've eaten here plenty of times now and don't usually review but the food is always so good I had to. Sashimi is world class and the flavours of all dishes have been excellent - even compared to the trips to Japan I do.

Dropped in for a family dinner tonight with 2 little lads (grade 2 & pre-school age). I can't rave about the service enough. It was warm, attentive and respectful (in true Japanese style)! The kids were treated like princes with their own special bowls, cups and even straws (without having asked). If you have kids you know that the special... More

It may not be the fanciest but it is simply the best! If you are looking for authentic Japanese food at very reasonable prices, then go no further than Hideki San's Zen Restaurant. It is clear Hideki is passionate about his food. Experience beautifully presented Sashimi, Sushi dishes, delicious hot pots, sukiyaki and the best pork belly ramen ever! We... More
