ZENSUSHI RESTAURANT

The story of ZenSushi began a while ago and is based on the passion for Japanese food, for harmony of taste and for things done the right way.

At the heart of this story there are two guys – Iulian and Andrei, who wanted to bring the true taste of Japanese meals to Romania and to raise the quality standards in this niche. They have also made these products far more accessible to people, without compromising the quality of ingredients.

Their first contact with sushi was back in the early 2000s, when they both worked at Tokyo Restaurant in Bucharest. Andrei left to work abroad, as a chef, while Iulian stayed beside the Tokyo owner – Okuda Yutaka, for 3 years. Thus he got to learn on the job from the very best. Later, he moved to another Japanese place – Sushi to Go. Here he spent 2 more years, building up knowledge and experience, while noticing the flaws, from backstage as well as from customers’ feedback.

In 2009, Iulian decided to open up its own Japanese restaurant, a place that would have good food made with premium ingredients. He was determined not to repeat the mistakes he noticed in the former jobs. He called Andrei to join him and together they have started on what seemed to be at first a crazy journey. So they have opened up their first restaurant in Serban Voda Street, in a place that formerly worked as a pub. They have worked together, playing as construction workers, architects or even plumbers.

The most intense memory from inauguration day? Their water pipes froze down. So they had to take them down, unfreeze them and put them back on. At first it was just the two of them plus an employee and they did all the work themselves.

Three years later – in 2012, the have managed to open up the second ZenSushi place, around Victoria Square. This was set up in the building where another restaurant ran before. It was more of a seized opportunity than a long-planned action. This time they hired an architect that worked based on their design ideas. They wanted to have a minimalist and modern ambience that would reflect the peace and harmony of the Zen philosophy.

When ZenSushi Dorobanti was born in 2014, they’ve already learned their lesson and it was easier to apply it to the next restaurants.

Their first restaurant – the one in Serban Voda Street, is no longer part of the ZenSushi chain. However, this gap was filled in not by one, but by two more restaurants – Sarroglia and Caramfil, plus a small “take away” concept place.

2016 was the year they opened ZenSushi Sarroglia, inside the Sarroglia Hotel. The place only needed a few design additions to make it to the present style – modern industrial.

The same industrial design, based on their own ideas, was used for ZenSushi Take Away. This is how a new “sushi to go” concept was brought to life, by maintaining the exceptional quality from the restaurants, with everything cooked on the spot. At ZenSushi Take Away nothing is prepared in advance and then kept in boxes. There are never any shortcuts in preparing the recipes. The main goal is to always have fresh and high quality products.
