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!

We planned to have a dinner with two families. The children are 17, 14, 10 and 8. We have enjoyed teppanyaki all over the world as it is one of our favorites. The children has joined us since they were 5 and 8. We recommend this to our friends as the food is excellent and the show is great but in this restaurant they don’t allow children under 12. You just lost 8 clients and great recommendations.

Very good sushi, nice atmosphere, everything! Located close to marina, Hilton hotel. Book your table in advance, often all tables booked. Take a sushi bar seats to enjoy the chefs art of cooking. Rolls with a tuna belly is a star! Recommend to try!

Friendly service, good sushi... we missed out on the teppanyaki (that was our goal) because the chef was on holiday, but we had a good time anyway.

Service a little on the slow side. Ambience is very pleasant and good both for dinner and/or a romantic evening and a friends outing. The food is of good quality, but somewhere in the upper mid-range of what one would expect from pretty much any Japanese restaurant. Wine list and Sake list are also a little unadvenurous. Really not bad, but only ok on the "value for money" scale.

Sat at the sushi bar as we like to interact with the chefs. Ordered Tempura and then a boat of Sushi and Sashimi.

The Tempura was well cooked and we were enjoying talking to one of the team and missed the main Chef preparing the boat. There is a large column in the middle of the sushi bar work area and his prep area was out of our vision.

We really enjoyed the selection of nigiri and sashimi. I always like to finish with a rich nigiri like Unagi and enjoyed talking to the chef while he prepared it. After that I asked him to make another choice to his recommendation and he produced a lovely cuttlefish option with surprise flavours.

Really good team and had a wonderful evening.
