Green, organic, local grown produce, fresh ingredients combined in an artful way to make your palate remember each flavor. Asian cousin with a twist. Is not always packed or the hot spot to hang out, but it is a great place to enjoy a true meal with friends and family. Needs more atmosphere but that is secondary when your entertainment... More

Was here recently for lunch with two other friends on a Monday. There were many empty tables, but we still had a bit of a wait for our food. We all got stir fry with shrimp, which comes with egg rolls and your choice of sauces. I felt the quantity was less than we had gotten in the past. Portions... More

If you enjoy a romantic spot, with great Asian food you will enjoy Zen Forrest. I have had the pleasure to dine here with groups in the back room. They had a 4 course meal including dessert. Everything was fantastic.

Zen Forest continues to be a great restaurant for get togethers with friends and family for all occasions. We had Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken, and several other delicious dishes! Their homemade salad dressing is so sought after that they sell bottles of it to desiring customers. I am so surprised the chef isn't in a 5 star fancy restaurant! He... More

We were served their specialty rolls and their crab Rangoon with two different sauces on the side. For the luncheon entrée we had a choice(previously chosen)of Fresh Grilled Fish over Green Goddess Rice, Sesame Chicken with Jasmine Rice... More

It is difficult to find really tasty and diversified vegetarian meals but I finally did at Zen Forrest. For lunch I had the crisp and tasty veggie rolls, jasmine tea, tofu stir fry with a delicate and gluten-free coconut sauce and fiery wok vegetables. The service was excellent and the restaurant clean with a relaxing atmosphere. Looking forward to returning.

The food was plated nicely. The pot stickers were nice but not wonderful. The shrimp dish had baby shrimp. The orange chicken was excellent. I think that I have heard so much about it and was expecting more atmosphere .I would go back if others wanted to but it wouldn't be my first choice. Thai Bistro is still my favorite.

The Thai food we order was very tasty and quickly served. However I think they could be a little more generous on the salad that comes with the meal.

I was totally surprised when I came across Zen Forest! There food is absolutely amazing! I have tried almost everything on the menu. The atmosphere is serene. Try one of there specialty iced teas and crab rangoon for starters. The Asian bolognese is a great spin on a classic dish. Save room for dessert because there chocolate moose! is out... More
