took friends who had never been and they loved it! Cuban egg rolls, spicy tuna tartare, Gen Tso chicken, wonton soup, chicken/wild rice soup, Zen egg rolls, hot Jasmine tea, peach iced tea, etc!! There was a lot of happiness. Upcoming Peking Duck night on 3/26...sooo good....have been many times. you need a reservation!

Not one of my favorites. I had high hopes, but the food was mediocre at best. Prices a little high. The coconut soup as a starter is good. The pad thai wasn't great

The restaurant is nothing fancy. With the name of Zen I thought it would have been a little warmer atmosphere. Food was good but not something that I have to keep going back.

My friends and I visit Zen Forest a few times each winter and it never fails to please! The cuisine is prepared for the health conscious gourmet who is in the mood for a truly unique experience. Come one, come all to this oasis on Rowan. Hope to see you there. The fried rice and veggies is to die for!... More

Chef Victor produces Asian fusion fare at an affordable price. The decor is simple, clean and relaxing. The kitchen uses local produce when possible and credits the source on the menu. Unlike many Asian restaurants the menu isn't overpowering with too many choices. Highly recommend you give it a try.
