Zen Japanese Restaurant is aiming for the preservation of the traditional culture of Japanese cuisine, which gives the best impression of the cuisine to the patron while being loved by them.

Canada is a multi-cultural country comprised of people with diverse backgrounds. Zen Japanese Restaurant is formed, in part, from this diversity and strives to become a place where patron could dine comfortably. We believe that the restaurant is also a form of entertainment. By providing great service, beautiful food presentation and delicious cuisine we believe patrons will have the best impression possible of Zen Japanese Restaurant and Japanese cuisine. We believe, as long as we continue with this thought, it is natural for patrons to fall in love with Zen Japanese Restaurant.

Dinner was amazing! Sushi was very fresh. I haven't tasted sushi as fresh as what I got during my visit! I wish I had room to eat more, but I was soo full by the end of it. I highly recommend coming here for special occasions and I would definitely come bacl in the future. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Outstanding cost performance value of the food quality. Very good explanation of the origin of the fish. The waitresses were pleasant, but they could stand farther away from the food while talking, for hygiene reason.

Disappointed to see that this restaurant did not accept OpenTable cheques. Thanks!

Food qualities were not at the level what I expected. Kind of disappointed, especially with sashimi. The seasonal soup only serve miso soup. The dessert really blank (melon, grape, etc) Not worth the value, and I definitely will not comeback

Had a spectacular experience and excited to have finally found an amazing high end sushi experience in Toronto.

We had the nigiri set and it was spectacular.

Service was great as well. And love the design of the sushi bar.

Zen puts a lot of effort to maintain their quality, variety, and service. Their food is always fresh consistent and very yummy. Though I understand why it’s so expensive (because everything is imported) I do wish the price can be a little more affordable so I can go enjoy their food more than 3 times a year 😉

The food was yummy but for the price it was really nothing special. For Omakase there are other restaurants that do it better with more unique and high-quality seafood. There was a little interaction between the chef in the customers almost 0 interaction other than giving the sushi to us.

We were finished the meal within 40 minutes. To pay roughly $300 for under one hour seemed very rushed and the food and ambience and service she didn’t have total to that much.

Doesn’t include any desserts or appetizers as well.

I recently went to Zen Restaurant in Markham for dinner and my boyfriend and we enjoyed the chef's menu. The quality of ingredients used was of the highest standard and very fresh. Also, the servers were very attentive. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience.

Great sushi as usual...seiichi sensei always deliveres the best to their customer. That's why I keep coming back for the past 20 years (from Eglinton to now Markham location) and still one of my favourite sushi place in GTA. Definitely recommended.
