Exquisite Food!

Zen Forrest is a great place for a date. I took my girlfriend here and we enjoyed the food very much. It is a little pricey, but overall worth it because of the quality.

We found Zen Forest a couple of years ago when we went there with friends. The food is usually always delicious, although I disagree with other reviewers on what dishes are best. Fresh food is the cornerstone of the restaurant. We really love the special events that Victor holds at the restaurant: Peking Duck, saki pairings, beer pairings, etc., which... More

Zen Forest Fried Rice is something we especially enjoy. On this main course you can add or delete most anything you like and season to taste. Chinese, Japanese, Thai and other Asian fare.

I don't think I've ever given something 5 stars before. 5 star food and impressively hot when requested. Usually I ask for spicy at restaurants and almost never is. I got the shrimp lo mein and it really was outstanding. It's obvious they use very fresh and most likely local ingredients. The craft beer list was outstanding as well. Asian... More

This Asian fusion restaurant maintains its quality year after year. We have never been disappointed. Everything is prepared onsite. No frozen food reheated! The dishes are presented beautifully and taste just as good. We have gone there with over 25 people for lunch and had excellent service. Whenever we want a special treat, we go to Zen Forrest.

We just ate here as a work related holiday party and we could not have been more impressed. My co-worker who organized the event is the definiton of a "foodie" so I had rather high expectations, but when we pulled up into a strip mall I was a little reluctant. Well as New Yorkers say, "forgitabouit". The service for our... More

Great service, even though we had a large group. Food is fabulous. They will even accommodate gluten free diets. Try the vietnamese coffee. We were a party of 9 and service was wonderful.

We've been searching for more than your typical take-out Chinese for the last 4-months. We found it! Zen Forrest delivers TASTE! I started with their Chicken soup - it had a flavor I can only describe as astonishing. I will get it every time I order - guaranteed. We also tried their egg rolls, orange chicken, general tso chicken, fried... More
