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…

Starter

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.

Cuisine: Far Eastern, International, Sushi, Pan-Asian

Visit Date : Friday 10th March 2017

Yip back again at Obu Pan Asian.

So I have been hitting the blogging hard again as you may have seen with all my recent and many posts, so I decided this month to try and be good and see if I can get any vouchers etc for Glasgow Restaurants.

 For me Obu Pan Asian has always been a very relaxing atmosphere, and I love the decoration it just sets you in the mood to relax and enjoy your meal.

Do take a look at my other Obu Pan Asian Reviews as there are some more photos.

As I said I had a voucher which gave me two mains and a glass of wine each, I can’t remember how much I paid for it but you can always find great deals on itison for here. Like most times I have a voucher I tend to always add a little extra to my order, or opt to pay for something that’s not included in the voucher offer.

Starter :

I opted for going off the Specials Menu tonight.

Kimbap
Seasame flavoured Rice rolls filled with egg and pickled vegetables with : 

Korean Style Beef “Bolgogi”
Fried Tuna
Avocado
Crab Sticks

Normally I don’t order Sushi from Obu Pan Asian, as I really love Nippon Kitchen’s Sushi but today I decided to give it a try and see how it compares.

The flavour of the Sushi was really nice, the crab flavour was perfect for me. My only issue was the rice didn’t hold together very well.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Main :

Thai Green Curry
Fragrant and medium spiced with green curry paste, coconut milk and kaffir lime leaf.
– KING PRAWN 

I had this dish a while ago in here, but it was the chicken option. Tonight I opted for the king prawn, to see how the flavour was with prawn.

The flavour of this was perfect, not to sweet not too spicy and the prawn was a very good option.

The offer included a glass of wine each, the one we got was a large one as the owner gave us a free upgrade.

Dessert :

There is always room for dessert.

This was not included in the deal, so I paid for this.

Rich chocolate mousse topped with a hint of chilli and topped with berries and cream £5.25

Oh My God!!!! I love my sweet dishes, and I love chocolate this was so so so good. A very thick and chocolatey mousse, with the very subtle hint of chilli which worked really well.

Overall :

I won’t comment too much on the prices as the owners were nice enough to allow us to go off the menu slightly, and as I said they gave us a free large glass of wine.

The prices for Obu Pan Asian with or without a voucher are all very reasonable, I have never found that its felt too costly for the size of the dish.

As always I really enjoy coming here, its very relaxing and the staff are all very friendly.
