Love This Place, Best happy Hour in Springfield for my taste

This is a place that is always welcoming and never disappoints and you are hearing from a guy who is a regular. Our whole family enjoys the sushi, the great food and fellowship of this place. From the Macadamia Nut Chicken to the Sea Bass and the Orange Chicken you really can't go wrong. We also... read more

Ocean Zen is a fabulous place to have lunch. It's exceptional value for the quality of food they have and it has a great atmosphere. Lunch is a higher price point but delicious as well!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Springfield! We've been there several times, and the food has always been fantastic: delicious, beautifully presented, excellent service, wonderful atmosphere. We've taken several visitors there and they've been impressed as well. Lunch, dinner - always great. Highly recommend!

I work nearby and was craving sushi, so I went to Ocean Zen for lunch. I waited almost 10 minutes for a server to even come to my table. I told her, I know what I want, but I'm on my lunch. I gave her my order and asked her if I had enough time for them to make it... More

Ocean Zen is tops with my family and has been for years . Surprising it's an Asian restaurant and my kids have loved it for years now. The decor is fun to just look at. Huge fish tanks with beautiful fish. Asian theme that they continue to update from time to time. The service is impeccable! We always ask for... More

I am not much of a sushi eater, but I can handle some types of sushi. This place is expensive for dinner. I have heard the lunch prices are much more reasonable though. If you don't like sushi, your options are pretty limited and expensive. Their sushi menu doesn't impress me. Almost everything on their specialty sushi list had sort... More

Had dinner here with 18 friends on a Monday night. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. The food presentation was delightful. The manager (or owner?) came around and asked each of us personally if our meal was satisfactory. I look forward to going there again. They have a sushi menu and a dinner menu, and both have...

Our waiter was from LA and SO kind. He recommended a nice fruity drink for me-sorry, forgot exactly what it was! The food was amazing. Really cannot find anything to complain about. Seemed like a top notch restaurant for here in Springfield!
