Having dinner at this restaurant was the highlight of my dining experience. The chef was entertaining and interactive and made each guest feel special and including in dining and cooking. The decor of the place was wonderful and really put you in the mind of being in a Japanese Hibatchi. This restaurant just like the rest of this resort was... More

This was one of the good restaurants in the Hard Rock. There are no menu's so your appetizer given to you is 4 pieces of sushi then your dinner follows. They put on a good show as well, they give chicken, steak and shrimp with your meal as well as fried rice and vegetables. Everyone is friendly and can speak... More

The lounge before dinner has a nice atmosphere and a nice variety of specialty drinks. On my visit they were serving cotton candy martinis. The ladies in the group loved them. The chef does a very good job entertaining guests at the hibachi cooking tables. They serve sushi as appetizers. My only complaints were the chef really overcooked the steak... More

This was my first experience with hibachi. I was impressed. The food was delicious and watching the chef cook it was too much fun.

This restaurant is very good. The rice is amazing. I love the large teppanyaki grills and table setup. The place is very clean. They cook up mixed veggies, rice, beef, chicken and shrimp. Have it as much as you want! We ate here three nights in a row while staying at the hotel. Very Very good! But only do the... More

Get there at 6pm to avoid long lines. There are no reservations taken at the restaurant. The sushi is fresh. Service is great. The chefs kept the little ones (and big ones) entertained with their egg tricks. You get chicken, beef and shrimp if you like. Dessert is included but we didn't get around to it. We were stuffed.

Go to Zen for some good food and great family fun. The chef cooks in front of you and jokes with the kids and you! The food is real good and so are the drinks. Can be loud but that's what makes it a fun atmosphere.
