Description: Zentan is your DC destination for Modern Pan Asian Cuisine. Our ambiance is perfect for social events, dates, meetings and celebrations and is rivaled only by our chef inspired, seasonal cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. Our sushi is sustainable, flown in fresh and crafted into cold plates and maki’s you won’t find anywhere else. Iffy about raw food? Not a problem! Our extensive selection of Modern Pan Asian cold and hot plates are sure to satisfy any pallet. Each dish is served from the kitchen as soon as it’s prepared; just think Asian Tapas! Here are a few dishes to whet your appetite: Myazaki Beef Hot Rock (cook it yourself, japanese river rock) Peking Chicken (bao buns, black garlic hoisin, cucumber) Maguro Crudo (goat cheese, fuji apples, pumpkin seed oil) Shagalicious (crab salad, cucumber, miazaki beef, tempura ebi, crispy leek)

“It's amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I dined here with several friends one evening. Ths Sushi and Sashimi were so delicious. This food is really fresh and made to order. Our table was large enough to accomodate us all without being uncomfortable. Service was about average.

“Thank you for a great evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I dined last night with friends and wanted to say what a great time we had. One little hiccup as we grew in number and they were very busy and didn't have a larger table. The hostess, Ayanna (come to find out she was the general manger ~ Go girl!) made it happen. Thank you, your humility and grace was refreshing! Food, service, everything was amazing! We will definitely be back!

Friendly staff and well made drinks! Chris Alvear made our experience extremely enjoyable. We stopped in for a quick drink but it turned out to be a really great time.

“Too pricey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We didn't think the food was anything greater special, and definitely not worth the price. Note: we dod NOT have the sushi.

Uh-oh – it sounds like you didn’t see the value in your meal at Zetan. Our chef is a fanatic about buying local, super-fresh ingredients from trusted farmers, which can make dishes on the menu feel a bit on the pricey side.
