Our Hosts invited us to taste the Japanese Cuisine here and they meant what they said. It was genuinely a different experience. We were recommended Veg Spring Rolls, Sweet n Sour Vegetables, Crisp Fried Tofu and white rice. The Hosts went for Green Dragon Sushi For the drinks we had lemon with mint juice and Ginger Iced Tea.

Though the food was a bit sweet for us it was good to try something different.

Visited this place after a long-long time.
Ordered with Tom Yum Goong (prawns) soup - it was lacking the flavor imparted by the crushed Lemon grass and also that of the Kafir Lime leaves. Galangal used was not very fresh and it tasted more on the sweeter side - this can be avoided easily. It is not that expensive and the serving size can be shared between two.
With it we had ordered Siomai chicken dim sums - steamed and served with garlic chili sauce. The serving size is good (6 pieces).
We then shifted to Sushi - ordered a plate each of Sushi and Sashimi Lover and Hosomski. Both turned out to be well rolled and value for money.
Serving size is enough to be shared between two people.
Service was prompt and courteous.
The place is easily accessible by wheel chair.
Price wise in the mid segment.
Must visit if fond of Sushi.

We had a meal with friends and kids here at Zen in the evening. We were lucky enough to get 2 booths so it was nice and cosy and we didn’t feel a though we were eating in a Mall.

The good news is that the menu is broad and varied so there was something for everyone. The kids went for chicken Katsu curry but the portions were huge so quite a lot of waste.

The sushi was pretty good but the coconut shrimp tasted of cooking oil which had obviously been reused and was not fresh.

Loved the lemon mint drinks which came with umbrellas and decoration.
