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.

    Brought my mother and mother in law here for Mother’s Day and what an experience. We got the sashimi special that came with appetizers and dessert and it was beautifully presented. The fish was extremely fresh and it was a bonus sitting at the chefs table watching them prepare everyone’s meals. Service was exceptional as well. Would definitely reccomend and dine here again!

    Just excellent! Ordering the omakase at sushi bar seats is a very enjoyable experience as the food is presented to me by the sushi chef at my eating pace. Delicious authentic Japanese flavors, presentation and taste are just mouth watering. Definitely will go back to have more !

    This is our favorite spot for an authentic Japanese experience. Everything from the decor, the staff, the ambience and the food will take you on a trip to Japan! The sushi melts in your mouth. Well worth the price. You won't find a more authentic experience anywhere else in Toronto!

    This Japanese restaurant is incredibly delicious . Fresh fishes and good cooking skills. I am a frequent customer since they had been started the business in Scarborough. Only top quality of meat and seafood were used. I have to give a credit for the ventilation system too. No aroma from sauce or fish was in the air. Highly recommended.👍👍👍👍👍

    吃的东西算是新鲜还不错,就是上菜速度稍微有点长,感觉没吃什么吃了两个小时...哈哈哈 和牛火锅算ok吧,A5和A4和牛的区别就是A5入口的口感会更oil一点点的感觉,但是从牛肉的嫩度来说,两个没区别。

    I have order the sushi omakase, the overall sushi is very fresh, but the workmanship is not very consistent. A couple of sushi rice has disintegrated and dropped while I picked it up with my chopstick. Presentation and overall food quality is good
