This is the best Asian food we've ever had...ever. The chef is an award winning chef. He is so talented at what he does. This is our favorite date night restaurant...or for special occasions. It's a little pricey, but I promise it's well worth it! Everything we've tried here has been top notch...I can't say enough about this place!

This was my first experience at Zen Forrest. I found this restaurant due to its favorable reviews here in trip advisor. My lunch partner and I were promptly greeted upon walking in and were encouraged to sit where we wanted. We found a table in the corner and looked over the lunch menu in front of us. This restaurant appears... More

We were so excited to go to lunch here today. We came specifically for Pho. Apparently they only serve Pho on Monday nights. So we decided to stay and try something else. We went with the stir frys which the server Dora recommended. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and provided great service but not sure why she recommended these dishes.... More

It is always enjoyable to dine at Zen Forest.. The wide selection of beautifully prepared and presented food was quite unexpected on our first visit. Every dish we've tried exceeded expectations. The location is not where you'd expect to find this caliber of food and service. If you try it you'll be back again and again.

First, I have to confess... When I read there was an Asian fusion restaurant in Pasco County, I was skeptical. But my friends and I were looking for a restaurant near Trinity and the guest of honor wanted Asian of some variety. The reviews were good, so, fingers crossed, we ventured to Zen Forrest. Well, I stand corrected on my... More

Zen Forrest has foods from different areas of the Orient and also serves a fantastic steak. The chef and wait staff are very knowledgeable and will advise you as to what meals are good for diabetics, etc. The chef will make your dinner to suit your needs. One of our favorite restaurants.

The waitress/server was excellent. Very pleasant; knowledgeable re: the menu items & customer favorites; contents of the various dishes; made excellent suggestions to those less familiar with...

A great selection of dishes that really awaken your taste buds. Probably the best Asian restaurant in a 25 mile radius.
