Zen is reliable for food that tastes and looks great. Every time we go we order something different.

We enjoy at least one visit here a year when a golf tournament brings us to the area. The rooks are wonderful, rice bowls terrific and the Won Ton soup is amazing. It's full of veggies, chicken, shrimp and yes, won tons. I really want to try the bananas and ice cream but leave too full each time.

outside is as bad as inside. quite dirty and flies around.. Salmon sushi was dry and tasteless. Tom yum soup is average and for those who know what Tom yum soup look like it is far away from it. we read good reviews, we have no ideas how this is possible. if you pass by try something else...

My wife and I had Thai dishes while the kids had Japanese (teriyaki) dishes. Food was very good. Interior is nice too. Only complaint was that the portions were small considering the price.

I do enjoy this restaurant every so often. The atmosphere is decent and the service is good. My favorite order is Edamame as an appetizer followed by one of their many curry dishes served with a nice size serving of steamed white rice.

We read a review indicating that the bldg was terrible on the outside which is true but he said the interior was fabulous - sorry the inside looked like a fast food restaurant. We went there because of the interior and food rating. My husband had the Kontaksu for $6.95, which is reasonable, but the food was not good at... More

I travel a lot and when I do I like to try not to eat at traditional restaurants that serve typically American food but look for restaurants that serve food from other countries. To my surprise and not to far from where I actually live I saw this restaurant and love Thai food and stopped for lunch. The food was... More
