Pricey but good sushi, sashimi, and Japanese food. This is more of an upscale place, not so much of a student hang out.

We live in Davis, and despite closeness of Sacramento with its larger selection we keep going to Zen Toro weekly for the last couple of years. Ingredients are always fresh, we tried pretty much all menu, and everything tastes great. The only thing I regret they don't have is outdoor seating.

We usually get edamame and calamari as appetizers and a large selection of rolls for the main course. Everything has tasted fresh and good so it's a regular stop when we're in town.

Zen Toro is a new favorite! We've visited a couple of times, buying a couple of appetizers and sushi rolls in addition to our meals. Everything was fantastic. In fact, Zen Toro's calamari, our bellwether dish, ordered everywhere we go, is the best we've ever had. If that weren't enough, the service we've received is excellent and friendly. I just... More

I went with colleagues one of whom is Japanese and said the place was "pretty good". I figured it could not be bad with that recommendation. The place is crowded but not unduly noisy. It has an extensive sushi menu and also a number of hot food options. I ordered a grilled salmon with some side dishes. Everything was great.... More

Let me just say that this place was incredible! The sushi was great of course, but I was blown away by the Ramen. A few years back I visited Hong Kong, my first trip to Asia, and had the pleasure of experiencing real ramen in a Japanese restaurant. Never again did I find something so delicious until I walked into... More

Service was attentive without being bothersome. it was a busy evening - our waitress warned us that the sushi chefs were busy so it our food might lag but it didn't. we tried the daikon salad which was...

I am Japanese and love Japanese food. I went to a lot of Japanese restaurant in USA and this is the best! I recommend Salmon-Ikura don and tempura.

This place is probably the best Japanese restaurant in Davis. It is authentic and owned by Japanese people. This is very important to me, as a Japanese person, because so many Japanese restaurants in this area are owned by non-Japanese. Sake kasu cod is my favorite!!

Was pleasantly surprised with the sushi and the staff was very friendly. Not the fastest service but the atmosphere and food made up for that. The Hamachi Nigiri was really fresh and there was a great selection of rolls, combination plates, noodle bowls and house specials that will have me back to try them all.
