Zen Japanese Restaurant

For over fifteen years, Zen Japanese Restaurant has been considered by patrons and critics alike as one of the city's finest dining establishments. Mouth dropping views of brilliant sunsets serve as the perfect compliment to the mouth watering creations provided by Zen's team of highly skilled chefs. Though located in beautiful West Vancouver, Zen is more than just a neighborhood restaurant, attracting a loyal following of Japanese food lovers from all corners of the globe.

The term "edible art" is an appropriate way of describing Zen's menu. Inspired by traditional Japanese cuisine, the inventive menu is heavily influenced by the abundance of wonderful West Coast seafood and produce. The premium is on quality, with the best offerings from Japan being served daily. Sushi and Sashimi creations are staples, but Zen has something special for any and all diners including a selection of highly innovative tempura, tappanyaki, and delicious robaba (Japanese barbecue) highlighted by chicken yakitori, garlic short ribs, and simply grilled fresh fish. Adventurous diners can choose "omakase" and have our master chef put together the day's finest selections. Zen's knowledgeable staff will assist you in choosing the perfect beverage to accompany your meal from an unparalleled inventory of premium sake and specialized beer and wine lists. And then there are the desserts....

With 65 seats inside and an additional 40 seats on our heated, ocean view patio, Zen is also a perfect venue for social and business gatherings. Full catering menus are available upon request and can be specifically tailored to suit almost any occasion. More details information about us can be obtained from our comprehensive website.
