A Story of Flavour

Since 2003, Zest Flavours has been a leader in innovation within the local restaurant scene. Inspired by international flavours experienced through working in hospitality overseas and travelling across continents, Zest Restaurant was among the first to introduce Asian cuisine to the Maltese Islands. As the restaurant came into its own, it evolved into an award-winning establishment, earning the Michelin Plate stamp-of-approval in 2021. 

Zest Restaurant and Zest Street Food’s menus also incorporate Nikkei Cuisine – a distinct cultural cuisine developed over multiple generations that blends Japanese cooking styles and Peruvian flavours. Nowadays, the ‘East Meets West’ concept still forms part of Zest Flavours, specifically through Zest Occasion’s bespoke menus for any event. 

Our Location
