Answer: Sushi Zen! Not impressed with the baked and friend menu. The salad was so-so and the dressing was not very nice. The soup was just fair. We ordered more traditional sushi and it was just ok, nothing to write home about. We had gyoza appetizer, was also just ok. However, the place was packed. People seem to like it,... More

I love the atmosphere. Small restaurant, but very cozy and urban. I usually go there for lunch or take out. I order the California rolls and they are fresh and quick for take out. I would go more often, but my husband just isn't into Sushi. The restaurant is hidden in a corner next to a auto supply shop, and... More

Being an avid sushi aficionado and loving most everything I've tasted from the sea, Sushi Zen has been my anchor in the assorted very mediocre selection of sushi in Livingston county. When one craves sushi one may be forced to settle for what others who haven't experienced great sushi would turn from. When I feel the need, to sushi zen... More

Sushi Zen is one of the best restaurant experiences in the area! The sushi and sushi roles are delicious and the presentation is always creative and first class. Miso soup and salad is included and I like to substitute the avocado dressing for the standard ginger dressing on the salad for a change of pace. The bento box and other... More

There are not too many sushi restaurants around, but Sushi Zen makes up for it. They have many choices.........and I love that it comes with soup and salad. Service is normally pretty good too.

Even if you shy away from sushi, Sushi Zen has something for you. If you stick with any roll with a sports name to it, you'll learn to love it!

Sushi Zen is a wonderful place to meet with others and share a great meal. The host/ess, servers, and sushi chef's are always smiling and helpful. The servers are very helpful with first time sushi students. The restaurant has a tasty ginger dressing on their salad. Forks on request, or try your hand at salad with chopsticks. The soup is...

On the weekends, this place fills up quickly so arrive early. They have table service or you can eat at the sushi bar. The selection is extensive, with probably three different menus to review. The bento boxes are a good value for the money because you get the soup, salad, and the box which is filled with a variety of... More

Our entire family likes the selection of rolls and the bulgogi. The chefs behind the sushi bar say hello and goodbye when you enter / exit. The presentation is awesome too. Sometimes you will get your sushi /rolls on a large ornate dish or boat, or something else creative.
