This restaurant is selling the actual dumplings cooked the way the Japanese cooks it! (Pan fried and steam it all in a pan). The dumplings here are seriously great and taste is great. The chicken, pork and beef used in dumplings are of free range and tasted heavenly. I’ve tried the pork and beef and vegetarian dumplings and I can honestly say that it is good unlike all the other dumplings I had from other restaurants such as Japanese and Chinese restaurants. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful in greeting and helping with the process from ordering to delivery of food. I would highly recommend people to try it out if you’re ever near. It’s a small shop and near the botanical garden so it’s worth the short drive or short walk over to try it out!

This is our go to spot for dumplings and sushi. So so good! Makes all the other places that do sushi and dumplings seem very sub par. Super friendly staff here also which is always refreshing. So glad we've found zen sushi!

We got the pan fried chicken and coriander and pork and chives dumplings with the spicy sauce and a mixed nigiri box. The dumplings were probably the best fried dumplings we have ever had- better than the ones we have had in Sydney. The pastry was thin yet crispy and the filings were tasty but did not seem to use any MSG. The nigiri sushi was so fresh and generously sized.

All items are reasonably priced too. Definitely recommend this place.

Fresh tasty food, affordable and great staff. Because everything is made fresh there isn’t much choice on the counter but you can ask them what you want they make it for you fresh ! We went twice in a row it was so good.

Good selection of fresh sushi and tasty dumplings. You can buy sushi by the piece so you can get the exact amount you want to eat. The nigiris were great and the price is good as well.
