A very pleasant surprise!

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... read more

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.

Anyone familiar with the area will know that it's hard to find a nice restaurant around here. I'd heard about Zen Forrest but yesterday was the first time my husband and I decided to try it. It was actually a really good restaurant. I think it may have been a little overpriced, but the food was fresh and the service... More

Food is excellent! Talk about fusion, we love the combinations they make. The General Tso's Chicken and the Bulgogi are second to none!

Went to this restaurant for a New Year's Eve dinner and it was an excellent 5 course meal, in New Port Richey, Fl. what a find. Not your standard fare but what a little hidden gem. Try it if you want to experience a unique meal.
