We often take the staff for lunch. They enjoy the menu, diversity, great service, fresh ingredients and pleasant atmosphere. Give it a try you will love it for lunch with the staff or with the family for dinner.

This is probably the highest quality Asian food you can find within all of Pasco. Not that we're all knowledgeable about the cuisine, but when it's right, you know it. Zen Forest is excellent for a date-night or just to bring some family. Do understand this is probably not the best place for small children. On the other hand, our... More

Anytime it is a real treat. Lunch or dinner. I go for lunch and have bahn mi. Although not on lunch menu. When I asked they were more than pleased to fix an order of grandpas potstickers although it does have a few Chinese dishes on menu. It is definitely not a Chinese restaurant. It is an Asian restaurant with... More

We went to Zen for dinner and the food was wonderful. The place is very low key and relaxing. The only negative is-it takes a long time for your food to arrive but other wise the I highly recommend it. I ordered the Thai Coconut Curry Chicken and it was delicious..

Let's put this way, Zen F. Is a better tasty American Chinese restaurant! I go there once a while for last ten years, food is normally pretty good, so does he services. But if you are looking for real Chinese food like in China town, you may be disappointed.

Every meal I have ever had at Zen Forest has been absolutely wonderful. To say the food is "tasty" feels like an understatement. Due to being on a tight budget, I cannot eat here as often as I would like but every meal is worth it. It is truly a variety of Asian cuisine, do not mistaken it for a... More

My wife and I have dined here several times and have always had a great meal! Service is very good as well. Whatever we have ordered has been very good. Pot Stickers, Zen Forest Rolls were good starters. Bul Go Gi was very good and my wife had the General Tso chicken which was good. We will be back!

I've lived in New Port Richey for 10 years before trying this restaurant, and I regret it! I finally went there for lunch with some friends, and the food was absolutely delicious! Very flavorful meal and great atmosphere. Highly recommend it!
