Their set menu for ¥2000 is very worth it. All the little dishes are very tasty and work well together. The soy custard icecream stuff has 10/10 mouthfeel and flavour

After looking at the high (and somewhat mixed) reviews, we decided to give this place a shot. Wasn't disappointed. The restaurant is quite small but had a cosy feel. Our meal was beautifully presented to us and each dish was explained to us in English...More

A modern view on traditional Japanese cuisine. Everything was really delicious. The wasabi is especially fresh and tasty. Only my miso soup, though very good, was a bit cold. Definitely recommending the 2000yen menu. Great value and dessert is just fantastic!

One of Nikko's more famous delicacies is the tofu skin (more commonly known as 'Yuba'). As expected, the bigger street of Nikko is filled with restaurants selling dishes with yuba. However, Zen, is a more unique restaurant in that it uses it as a way...More

We had the set with beef yuba roll (2000Y). It was OK. Dessert was good and I'd eat that again but I'm not a big fan of the food. Nothing special. Stewed burdock was good. We also had veg yuba roll and fish roll. Grilled...More
