We read a review indicating that the bldg was terrible on the outside which is true but he said the interior was fabulous - sorry the inside looked like a fast food restaurant. We went there because of the interior and food rating. My husband had the Kontaksu for $6.95, which is reasonable, but the food was not good at... More

I travel a lot and when I do I like to try not to eat at traditional restaurants that serve typically American food but look for restaurants that serve food from other countries. To my surprise and not to far from where I actually live I saw this restaurant and love Thai food and stopped for lunch. The food was... More

My concern is cleanness of place. Tables and silverware not the cleanest. Food is average. Location is ok.

I absolutely love Zen and highly recommend this as a great place for Sushi. My husband & I go several times a month and have never been disappointed with the quality or quantity of food. The owner and servers are so nice and friendly and make you feel very welcome!

I might be the only one who does not give rave review for Zen. But maybe because I'm ans Asian and used to the real deal Thai and/or Japanese food. Here is what we ordered (to go); 1. Prawn tom yum, I asked for hot and what I got was not hot. Not even a little bit. Not enough sour... More

We were surprised by the sophistication of Zen in Banning. Located in a converted home (looks like) the inside was quite inviting; the staff was great and the food was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the sophistication of the sushi. Well done; we will return.

First off, I could go there just for the stir fried rice. It's definitely the best I've ever had. I love the terayaki stir fry combination with beef, chicken, shrimp. I'm not a sushi person but my adult son is and he says it's the most amazing sushi he's ever had. Sweet, caring, professional staff, too. Great place.

I stopped by this place on the way back home from camping after finding it on tripadvisor. Im glad I did! The Pad Thai was great and my friend liked the Yellow Curry. The regular iced tea was fresh brewed... I had about 8 glasses. The service was really good because of the friendly staff. I really recommend this place!
