I tied my first sushi in my life in there, and it was so-so for me but my other accompanies really like them, the price of wine was a little high in compare of wine connection restaurant next to this restaurant.

This restaurant was good... Not sure what happened in the last year or so.. The food quality and cooking took a hard down fall, like a free fall... Will never visit it again and surely won't recommend it to any... The service? What service? I summaries it by the slogan "whatever, who cares..."

If you like the real sushi does not go further! You are in the sushi temple in Phuket! Everything is so good, very refined and generous. The staff is friendly and you can see the sushi man trying to cook, everything is really clean.. We recommend this place without hesitation...

Try their Sushi and Grilled Salmon. Great Price for the quality of food you get. The waiters need some English Language training.

Myself and my wife are on a year long diving/travel trip around SE Asia. Our weakness is Sushi so saw there were 2 in Central Festival and decided on Zen based on OK reviews. The first thing to say is very expensive for what you get. The Sashimi selection was cut so thin you could see through each slither and... More

I have frequented this restaurant chain many times in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket. Their quality is consistent. Their food is excellently prepared. It is a bit more expensive than the Fuji chain, but the sashimi is fresher and of higher quality.

Description
Hi, I Wanted to leave a review for the best (under $50AID pp) Japanese Sushi restaurant we have ever been to, but it isn't on here. Yet an inferior cafe style (not restaurant style in the same centre & no cheaper is). When i looked it up there were a number of comments about how good it was (again mentioning how it was better than the other that is listed about Yen in 2008) asking if it is still open. I am sure if it was on here you would get many comments as it is amazing. There is also one at Patong Beach I believe but it isn't as good in my experience.
