Couldn't ask to have a better sushi restaurant in West Vancouver BC. Fresh seafood and great ideas on different rolls. Love that some rolls are mad with crepes rather than rice and seafood. Servers are all great. I live in the neighborhood so even take-out is an option as well. Thumbs up to an amazing sushi restaurant. Highly recommend this... More

Exciting menu options for Sushi lovers - best prepared salmon I have ever had. A bit pricey but well worth it. Your taste buds will thank you and you will leave happy and satisfied. Also a very pleasant atmosphere with outside porch dining available depending on weather, of course.

We met another couple there last night for dinner. We had a lovely view thru the trees of the water. We ordered about 7-9 different rolls, and such. My favorite was the deep fried salmon roll. Very very good. Every thing was top notch. Our waitress (didn't catch her name) was great, and the tea pourer girl was always coming... More

Avoided Zen like the plague due to a negative service experience but boy have they either a) turned things around b) had an off day when I visited. I am a sushi lover and never had a problem with the quality with the food so the revisit was imminent. Great for families, and on the pricey side. Nothing too expensive... More

2 friends and I went to this restaurant last night for the Dine Out event. We've never been to this restaurant but was so impressed. Service was attentive, friendly, and efficient. Ambiance was great. Food was outstanding. We tried 2 different types of appetizers, dungeness crab and scallop cakes and chirashi sunomono salad. It was a huge portion comparing to... More

Description
The term “edible art” is an appropriate way of describing Zen’s menu. Inspired by traditional Japanese cuisine, the inventive menu is heavily influenced by the abundance of wonderful West Coast seafood and produce. The premium is on quality, with the best offerings from Japan being served daily. Sushi and Sashimi creations are staples, but Zen has something special for any and all diners including a selection of highly innovative tempura, teppanyaki, and delicious robata (Japanese barbecue) highlighted by chicken yakitori, garlic short ribs, and simply grilled fresh fish. Adventurous diners can choose “omakase” and have our master chef put together the day’s finest selections. Zen’s knowledgeable staff will assist you in choosing the perfect beverage to accompany your meal from an unparalleled inventory of premium sake and specialized beer and wine lists. Zen is also a perfect venue for social and business gatherings
