We met friends for dinner the other night at Zen. It was a busy evening, but our server was excellent and kept things on track. We had the sesame chicken and the shrimp pad Thai. Both were very good. Our friends really enjoyed their meals...More

Mixed reviews for a reason...bar consumes most of the place and as advertised I’d for sure go back for Sunday 12-230 for $20 mimosas and all you can eat ( basic) Sushi rolls. As far as our late night dinner experience ...heavy on salt. Edamame...More

Our work group was recommended this place for sushi so the team went one night. The sushi was very disappointing. If we go again we plan to try some of their other options and hope for a better experience.

One of the best oriental dinners we've had for a while. Very good service, good choice of menu and tasty without additives. Good value - melts in you mouth.

Ate outside, might have been a mistake. The armrests on the chairs were sticky, smokers at nearby table, homeless guy asked for money... As for the good, well, hibachi steak was fatty, chewy, really a miss. Sushi waa ok. Won't be back in all likelihood.
