When my wife and I visit Charlotte, we often go to Zen. The sushi is great but the best thing on the menu is the Bunn dish. Also the cocktails are very tasty. The only problem is the service is hit or miss. If it is not too busy you are fine, but if it is busy and you get... More

Our first time to this restaurant. Fun combination of food offerings ranging with the spanish tapas dishes to the sushi. Our group of five had the diablo mussels, scallops, blue cheese calamari and several sushi rolls. All were delicious. Excellent service and special attention has to be what brings the regulars back to this popular spot in Dilworth. Outside seating... More

We ate at Zen Fusion for the first time this New Year's Eve. The food and service were excellent, The prices were reasonable. The menu was definitely a fusion. Our table had Vietnamese, Thai, Spanish and Sushi dishes. Easy, free parking too!

I made a reservation this past month for a group of six girlfriends. The service was amazing, they let us pick where we wanted to sit, the food was delicious and the server had great recommendations. I love this place and can't wait to go back. Always excellent.

Three of us dined here for lunch and all three meals were delicious. The atmosphere is modern and the service was awesome. None of us tried anything from the Spanish menu but as good as the Asian dishes were, it is bound to be great. I was surprised by how reasonably priced it was too. Definitely recommend.

Since the first time I was taken to Zen by my sister I have loved it! The sad part is I live out of town so I do not get to go unless I come to town. Last month I was in town and of course Zen was our destination for dinner. We went on a Saturday afternoon right when... More

I had the daily special and the coconut cake for desert. The food was really good and well worth the trip. The restaurant was a little hard to find. It is 'hidden' in a strip mall and did look very averages from the outside. The only thing I would improve in would be the seat in the booth, they where... More

This was our 2nd visit and made us wonder why we'd waited so long to go back. It has a very nice setting, reasonable prices and a wide selection of food. Conveniently situated off East Boulevard with plenty of parking nearby in the supermarket parking lot. Wine by the glass at reasonable prices with good selection. Service very good.

We went to Zen for the first time this past Friday night. We've gone to the sister restaurant Miro a few times and really enjoyed that but have not gotten around to trying Zen until now. We walked in and their patio seating looked great but unfortunately there were no free tables. Inside was very nice, so I can't complain... More
