A treat worth finding in Olney!

I have persnickety family members when it comes to sushi and it was quite a surprise to find a first-rate shop in an out of the way side street (although it is next door to a highly rated French-Belgian eatery). The selections were fresh; no noise; the portions were ample; and the staff was very... read more

Sushi was good - the mushroom miso soup is especially good. Prices a little high. Asian Zen in Burtonsville rates higher with us for sushi restaurants.

Love everything that we order - always fresh and plentiful. We have both eaten in and done take out, never let us down. Specialty rolls are a favorite, we ask if the chef has anything in particular new that he wants to try. highly recommend!

My husband and I went to Wasabi Zen for Valentines Day. It was our first time there so we didn't know what to expect. The restaurant is very cosy and the food is great. I had uni (sea urchin) sushi for the first time and it was great. They had very interesting and unique sushi rolls in addition to the... More

The sushi might be great here, my daughter loves it, but she recently had a very bad experience recently while trying to order take out. She arrived to order take out, and the place was practically empty. When she tried to order, the woman at the front gave her a very slow eye blink like it was just too much... More

Amazing sushi with large variety of options. Everything is super fresh and tastes amazing. Their traditional rolls are great but you need to try their speciality rolls. There is one for every taste bud! They are not super fast so plan on taking some time if you are dining in. If you are ordering carry out, be sure to call... More

Superb quality that puts all other suburban locales to shame... There are options for diners who might prefer chicken or beef entrees (cooked, of course). The soups and salads are exquisite. Rolls, sushi and sashimi are heavenly. Try everything at least twice.

Very good Sushi food. No 5 stars because the ambiance is a little lacking, but overall a very good Sushi place based on the food quality alone.

We have been to Wasabi Zen several times over the past few years....sushi still decent....but the service is really hung backwards! Tools us 20 minutes to have our order taken after we were seated. Only one server for the restaurant and she also ran the cash register. Our initial drink order was also served with the miso soup. Table was... More
