    Nothing triggers a craving more than a smoky and umami-inducing aroma wafting through the air; seduction at its best. The aroma is probably exuded from the Buta Teppanyaki, with lean and fat meat complementing each other, filled with smoky and garlicky flavours. Sushi must not be brushed aside as well, with the Alaska Roll featuring Salmon Sashimi and Roe, garnished with a zesty concoction of mayo. 

    Tips

    Sit by the sushi bar for an immersive experience.

    Things to expect

    Full reservations during peak hours.

    It’s hard to be picky about tastes and flavours in chain restaurants, but all those discerning taste buds can rest assured, it is not the same here. Sushi Zento features a selection of pork dishes that will change your perception towards the usually plain dish. Here, they take it up a notch by glazing their Roasted Pork Belly to a melting texture, introducing Pork Bacon into Mushrooms and Butter, wrapping seafood with more bacon, because why not?
