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.

Don't expect the usual take out Chinese food here. There are Thai dishes, Korean style dishes along with Chinese foods. I've liked everything I have ever had here. It may be small and in a neighborhood strip mall but it is unique and special. Service has been good everything time I've been there. The shrimp and seafood dishes are usually... More

I had heard really good things about Zen Forrest, but it took a Groupon deal to get me to go. I shouldn't have waited so long. Our friendly server, Kerri, was on the spot and knowledgeable about the menu offerings. And there are many of those! It was hard to decide what I wanted because everything looked so good. In...
