Snapper and Cuban egg rolls

Snapper was cooked perfectly. The sauce was a bit spicy. The rice was mediocre at best. The egg rolls were just ok. A bit greasy. The salad was a bit boring just lettuce and a few slivers of carrots. I had coconut panna cotta for dessert it was creamy and came with fresh fruit on top. Similar... read more

I arrived 15 minutes before they opened and they accommodated me immediately. The food is very fresh and they seem to keep health in mind with every meal. I would highly recommend this place.

I first heard of Zen Forrest in my Tai Chi class, and it was highly recommended. The location, in a small mall is unpretentious and the restaurant tastefully decorated. The food, however, was terrific. My husband and I shared the tuna/avocado appetizer with crispy wantons, then had the green goddess fresh fish, and the Thai coconut shrimp. The restaurant has...

Chef is a young American born Chinese man from New York. He brings a city feel with Asian food to New Port Richey. Menu is varied and presentation of food wonderful. They have special nights like Peking duck. It is authentic except for the soup. It appear the practice of serving duck soup with the bones at the end of... More

This was our second visit to Zen Forrest, the first being a year ago. Both visits were very enjoyable. The restaurant is in a pretty non-descript shopping center. The decor is average with Asian theme. Consistent informative and friendly service. Wine list has good variety. The food is of cuisine quality and beautifully presented. There were several offerings on the... More

Pasco county has very few decent restaurants but Zen Forest is one of the best. It is Asian themed but always has something for everyone. My husband is not a big fan of Asian cuisine but he loves the place! The service is great with a very nice wine list and moderately priced-never had bad meal.

We have been to Zen Forrest many times, but went there for their New Years Eve service. It was pricey for $120 for two, but it included champagne toast and dessert. In our opinion, worth it. We would much rather frequent a local merchant than a chain restaurant. Zen Forrest never disappoints.
