Hands down the best sushi restaurant in Lausanne. Very friendly and professional service. Best quality of fish. Great wine and even better sake to pair! Tip: go wild on the menu and pick daring items... You'll be surprised!

The service was very good - quick, attentive, pleasant. The products were fresh but I can't say that the taste was something memorable. For me it is not a place where I would like to return. And the prices were quite high.

Very good Japanese food in the traditional manner. They did not have a grill or hotpot type dishes - not much is actually cooked but the food was authentic.

Defn an upscale, pricey sushi restaurant, but good food considering we were in Switzerland! We ate here after a long day of sightseeing as it was in our hotel.

Everything perfect. The service is thoughtful, attentive, and effective (no long waits when you order another glass of wine). The menu is diverse and creative while hitting on the essentials. All of the fish is delicious, top quality, fresh. A bit on the expensive side...More

Irashsaïmasé...We are pleased to welcome you at palace sushi-zen, whose philosophy is to reinvent traditional japanese cuisine. The constant quest of an itamaesan is to modernise his way of cooking by intimately combining aesthetics and taste. The pleasure of the eye being the first step of a tasting, the former has to be fulfi lled in order for tastebuds to begin the unexpected journey this "avant-garde" cuisine invites you to.The neophyte will become initiated to the blending of flavours and colours while the tsu (true connoisseur) will appreciate these audacious compositions.The creation of a new culinary atmosphere implies a mixing of cultures and the elaboration of a new kind of dish. Everyone is pleased, the raw fish, meat or vegetable lover's requirements and gustatory sense will be satisfied.Astonishment is the key word of this culinary quest, our aim is to extract you from your daily reality and to offer you a parenthesis of discoveries and change of scenery…Let yourselves be carried by novelty!ken kawakami
