Nice, modern atmosphere. Sushi selection limited and not creative, but fresh and good. "Bun" noodles were great, but as I expected. Seafood stew was good but not great. Messed up my basic dirty martini. Charged us for a drink they forgot to bring us. All was good, but surprised it's ranked so high on tripadvisor.

this was my first visit in this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. This is not your average Asian food, it is much more elegant and tasty. I will definitely go back.

The service was outstanding from the time we entered the restaurant and the food was an excellent addition to the service. Zen is the favorite restaurant for myself and my wife.

My husband and I consider Zen our favorite restaurant in Dilworth. The food is always good. I have never had a bad or even just ok meal. I love the Thai Basil Shrimp, Bun, and Paella. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant has a very nice feel to it, professional and well run by not stuffy. Love it!

Not your ordinary Asian menu. I love the fact that I can get things here that are not everywhere else, but my husband who is less likely to try new things still can order and enjoy his meal. I have had fish dishes that were light and so fresh tasting and more than one of the specialty plates. I had... More

Zen is our my husband's and my favorite restaurant!! We have gone there at least 1 to 2 times per month for years. I tend to get the same delicious fish entree but my husband has tried almost everything on the menu. We love the atmosphere, the entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. We have NEVER been disappointed!!

Have dined at Zen many times. Food is always excellent and the service is outstanding. . Recommend the hibachi salmon and chicken, the Kung Pao Chicken, the Paella, the Shrimp Tempura, the Empanadas, and any seafood special. The Dilworth roll and Firecracker roll are also very good from the sushi menu. They also offer a nice selection of deserts (about... More

From the time you arrive you are made to feel welcome. Servers get to know you by name; they remember your favorite dishes and taste in wine. They will change a recipe to meet your needs. The menu is extensive and we have not had a dish we didn't like. It's a favorite spot to meet friends and you are... More
