First time at the new location. Exciting decor, great service and as always amazing food. The misoyaki butter fish is not to be missed. Love this place.

Food is great but they have to do something to absorb the crowd noise. It's beyond overwhelming and very unpleasant. Probably won't return.

Enjoyed dinner at Oceans Zen! The newly renovated restaurant was electric and modern. I had the delicious Ocean Zen Spicy shushi roll. It was all I could eat along with my wine and one wan ton--also very tasty. One person in my group had the duck which he enjoyed. We will definitely return.

I have eaten at Ocean Zen probably 8-10 times. This is my go-to place for out of town guests and special family occasions because the food has always been excellent, the presentation classy and the service superb.

One of my favorite places to eat in SGF.... And if your a foodie at all, then the pickins in Springfield, Mo are in short supply. But this one is pretty good. And if they have Japanese Butterfish on the menu, it is a must have. But very rich and yummy.

This is a very interesting restaurant, there is a very large aquarium in the middle of the restaurant that really sets the atmosphere. The food ranged from terrible to terrific.

Delightful and delicious meal, service and surroundings. The restaurant is beautiful, and the eye appeal of the meals, besides their great taste, made this a special place to come.
