Food's great with lots of choices

My wife and I had Thai dishes while the kids had Japanese (teriyaki) dishes. Food was very good. Interior is nice too. Only complaint was that the portions were small considering the price.

I do enjoy this restaurant every so often. The atmosphere is decent and the service is good. My favorite order is Edamame as an appetizer followed by one of their many curry dishes served with a nice size serving of steamed white rice.

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

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!
