Apart from trying different types of Romanian food, I wanted to try some other styles of food when I was here and one style was Japanese. From my research and also from friends, I was told about Zen Sushi.

My favourite Sushi place in Glasgow is Nippon Kitchen, so I wanted to see how Zen Sushi was and how its atmosphere was so I payed it a visit.

On arrival the entrance was very Japanese themed with a little bridge and pond, this for me was very cool as I liked themed style restaurants so this was a good start for me.

We were welcomed in and shown to a seat inside.

There was an instant nice relaxing feel to the restaurant, and from the food I saw being served to everyone around me it looked very good so I couldn’t wait to order.

We had this little device on the table, this is the first time I have been to a restaurant with something like this. It had 2 buttons on it, one to order, two to pay for the bill and the last to cancel.

I will show the cost in the native currency, if you are reading this and stay in the UK just device the cost by 5 and it’s roughly that in pounds.

The Food…


Gyoza Shrimp 25 LEI


Tonight I wanted to try a few things, so I thought lets have a look at the starters and see what I fancy.

I opted for this dish as it sounded nice…well looked nice from the photos and I knew it was shrimp so it sounded good.

This was very nice, the perfect size for a starter. The shrimp taste was very nice and not overpowering and the added sauce just added that extra nice flavour.

I really enjoyed this and would have it again.

For my main I opted for this, and no I didn’t have it all to myself even though I could probably have taken it all…..I shared it with my girlfriend.

I loved this!!!! every mouthful was very nice and again with the added dip wow amazing!!!

There was one of them that stood out from the rest, and I wish I knew what one it was as I wish I would have had more of this type.

My first visit to a Zen Sushi and I was very impressed, everything was fresh, the service was very good and I enjoyed my evening here.

If I am ever back in Bucharest I will visit here again and try some more dishes.
