About the restaurant
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.

Yasu is Canada's first Omakase sushi bar.

Enjoyed our dinner at Masaki. The veggie tempura was light and fresh. My husband enjoyed his sushi and the pork belly bowl was delicious.

Gonzo Izakaya is a fantastic spot to catch up with friends and try a variety of delicious snacks. There are some unique and super tasty menu items, I recommend the Eihire. If you're looking for a bigger portion to start your meal, go for the karaage or the onigiri. The decor is awesome, the walls are filled with Japanese menu slips. The bar section is cozy and the retro TV setup they have is really fun.

Intimate space with a thoughtfully curated tasting menu. We were able to try a bit of everything and each element in the dishes we had was so intentional, unique to other restaurants we've been to and super well thought out! We appreciated the attention to detail in terms of both service and food quality. 10/10 highly recommend!
