Way over priced, mediocre sushi! If you must have Japanese go to the ZEN in piedade, less wait and maybe the chief is better. I went here with a friend wanting a good night out and ended up waiting 45 just to get a table...More

Zen brings the all you can eat concept for a fare price. You can choose among different plates that can please all the tastes. The problem with the restaurant is the space between the tables, it is almost impossible to have privacy in the restaurant....More

In search of a decent sushi in Recife, I have tried just about all that is available. In Brazil you will be fooled by the advertisement and pay for garbage. This place is probably the worst and most expensive I have had in my life....More

You may choose to order single plates or you may order the plates thru the "All you Can Eat" system. Go with the "All you Can Eat". One's the Best japanese food in Recife.

You can eat Temakis in all over the world, but just in Zen, you can taste the Originais Temakis made of the typical Brazilian Flavor, go and get the Temakis made of the typical fruits of Northeast, you will not regret.
