Good Asian food in a very nice setting

I come here for lunch during the workday sometimes. It has a very nice atmosphere and is quiet and laid out so that you have a bit of privacy depending on where you sit. Good place for business meetings. Food is very good and good quality. Service is professional and friendly and usually quick... read more

From sushi to lots of other Asian offerings, Zen Asian Grill and Sushi is a good place to dine when trying to please several diners. The food is tasty as demonstrated by the empty plates. But it is not anything special that you cannot get at another Asian restaurant. The difference is the wide variety of cuisines. Kudos to our... More

Normally, we have had good meals (mostly dinners) at Zen, but this trip was not so great. The lunch deals are very reasonable but the chicken in both our meals was tough and the spring roll was cold.

Must be the Best Sushi in Burtonsville! OK, must also be the only Sushi in Burtonsville....and I guess it is not bad at all. The place is nice looking, open late for Burtonsville standards.... Yep, the Sushi is not bad, they have a lot of different types and I've enjoyed most all of it. We just don't like the Chinese... More

Nice alternative but a bit on the high-price side for what they serve. The food is tasty and there are many choices to enjoy.

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday night. Great food and great service. My daughter spent time in Japan, and tells me this is the best sushi she has had since Japan.
