My husband and I have eaten here for dinner a few times, but today was our first time for lunch. It was great! I tried the Banh Mi (French/Vietnamese pork sandwich). I'm not usually too adventurous when it comes to Asian food, but this sounded good, so I gave it a try. DEE-licious! It's very spicy, but the flavor of... More

Went to Zen Forest for a ladies luncheon. The atmosphere is OK, a little run of the mill but the service was great and the place was very clean. The food was good and the selection was good too. Would go back if in the neighborhood.

I love the food at this restaurant. There are multiple sauce options and they are equally delicious. The atmosphere is nice but the service can be slow at times.

Went for lunch with a friend and I ordered sesame chicken and it was so good I could have licked the plate but I remembered my manners. The prices are such a bargain for such wonderful food. Can you tell I am a fan. This is a hidden gem and it should have a line out the door every day.... More

Always interesting to see what's on the menu and never been disappointed. Elegant dining experience, interesting menus, great service and good portions. Great place to take visitors or a family celebration.

Our meal was the freshest meal that we have had in a very long time. It was amazing. We will definitely return. The menu is moderately priced and portions are of a good size.

Loved the menu but the execution fell incredibly short. My entree was most tasteless dish I have ever experienced. The salad and appetizers were good but how an entree could be so bland is beyond me. Needless to say I cannot recommend this restaurant.
