Affordable Eat-All-you-can Japanese food! You are provided with a checklist menu instead of standing in line at the buffet table. The place is usually packed so make reservations even for a small group of 2-3. Teppanyaki is really good. You can reserve tatami rooms if you want more privacy for your group. Unlimited salmon and tuna sushi for the win!!

We always have our lunches and dinners here if we want japanese buffet. the menu is great! sushis, sashimis, teppanyakis. But their kani tempura is quite tough. Desserts are assorted. Their staff nice and friendly. but you have to reserve a table early because the place is always filled with diners.

We arrived close to 2:00pm already last Saturday and the place was still packed with diners. The concept of the place is ala carte buffet wherein you order what you want from a predetermined menu. Being so late already, we were forewarned that their closing time is at 2:30, nonetheless, I promised my mom a good Japanese lunch. We ordered... More

We availed the EAT/DRINK ALL YOU CAN promo they had. What's good here is that they cook the food upon order.. Basically, its like "order all you can". The food is good, but service is not so good. They would ask you to fill up a sheet along with the number of orders you would like. But realistically, this sheet... More

The service is ok, food quality is so-so compared to traditional Japanese fare. Nevertheless, this is value-for-money food destination.

Last week, my friend treated our group of six us to a buffet lunch at the Zensho Japanese Restaurant. It was good that we decided to go early because the place was packed shortly after noon. The food was exceptional. You can choose any item from their entire menu and order in unlimited quantities. Unlike other restaurants, you don't have... More

First and foremost, lunch is cheaper than dinner by a P100. And their beverages are pricey but not to be strained about. For me, their menu has a wide variety of selection. I am not a fan of Jap food, but I love Zensho! Their serving is a bit small but heck, you can order more! I think their quantity... More
