Visited this restaurant several times for the past 3 years - food standard is well maintained. Soft shell crab and unagi dragon maki are my all time favourites. Sashimi is fresh - must try!!

I've visited Wa zen for more than 6 years! The Salmon with teriyaki sauce is definitely the best! We loved the white tuna & golden roll as well! :) Highly recommended!

Read about so many good reviews about this restaurant in the Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try to see how good it is. I usually do not eat Japanese Food when I visit Melaka. I am not into Japanese Food by my son and wife they are. And their conclusion is average but the service is good.... More
