My 1st time here. Tasty, quick, fair prices, friendly service. You can stay as healthy as you want or be a bit more indulgent with their menu options :) If you build your own bowl, do pay for extra protein. Thank you!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff made excellent recommendations for our first time here. The bowl came out so fast, the sushi a little later (we finished the bowl when the sushi was ready)- both very delicious and tasted fresh. Cute casual place to sit down. The place was busy which is usually a good sign, and they handled the volume of... More

Friend introduced me to this place looking for a spot to eat for lunch. This is almost PeiWei style but better. Everyone says it's healthier but it is traditional brown rice with meat and vegetables. But that was my meal. They have other options with "build your own bowel". I walked out full and the price was not bad at... More

The portions are large, and if we order their takeout for lunch, everyone usually has enough Zen leftovers for dinner. The only caveat I have is that some locations seem dirty. That wasn't true when Zen... More

My wife wanted to eat Japanese before my daughters guitar recital. Near where the recital was being held was Zen. I did not know what to expect, never been to a fast food Japanese restaurant. First, you order from the counter. I liked that, no pressure or waiting for help to take our order. Second, they have a fitness menu... More

Tucked away in a small shopping center was this gold mine of goodness. We stopped by for lunch while we were out and about and what a great find. This place had a great vibe, very casual dining, and the food was delicious.

Not the kind of place you think of when you hear the term "Fast-food". Instead the modern, clean interior give you a playful yet serene locale for enjoying the flavourful food. Very Austin, and very recommended.
