We were there with a larger group (70 people). While the seating was distributed over the whole restaurant the food was quite good for the mass. A combination of asian with spanish kitchen.

I've eaten at Zen Asian Fusion any number of times, both for lunch and dinner, and most recently August 10, 2014. It's in the Dilworth neighborhood, close to downtown Charlotte, tucked in an out-of-the-way corner of a small shopping center at the northwest corner of Kenilworth Ave. and East Blvd. It's not fine dining, but not terribly expensive either.

Had the Hibachi shrimp. On previous trips have had Hibachi scallops and Pad Thai. All are excellent!. Tres leches for desert is excellent as well. Can't go wrong here!

Our first visit here, but definitely not the last. Outstanding food, good atmosphere, excellent service. Fried calamari light and crispy, excellent aioli sauce. Paella was perfectly cooked and seasoned, seafood stew fragrant and tasty. The scallops in parmesan dish was perfection, be sure to sop up all that delicious sauce with the bread.

I have been to this restaurant about five or six times and every meal has been excellent. Their food (particularly the seafood) is so fresh and has such great flavor. A couple meals that stand out in my mind is the Japanese Teriyaki Scallops - they give you such a great portion of scallops, cooked perfectly and the sauce is... More

This place is great. Have never ordered anything I didn't love. It's a weird mix but they do it all so well. The service is perfect - everyone is super friendly and I have never been without the manager/owner stopping by to check on us. The prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food and they... More

Wonderful Lunch restaurant: Taste, Presentation, Service, Atmosphere all Excellent!! We arrived during lunch time, parking was a little difficult but worth the struggle to park. We started off with Miso Soup and Hot Sour Soup: Soups had lots of hearty chunkiness My miso soup had just the right amount of tofu and seaweed. I also requested some green onions to... More

Love the Dilworth area, and this restaurant fits it well. The atmosphere was casual with some nice decorative touches. If I had to give some negatives it would be that the menus were a bit beaten up and that some of the staff appeared to be a bit more casual than I usually like. For example one of the staff... More
