We had a lovely experience at Zen. Any sushi establishment that carries Uni on their menu is top notch in our book! Thank you!

Kind servers Positive atmosphere. Sushi was delicious. We were greeted and shown to a booth without a reservation. Personal attention to detail. From the water to drinks to the sushi, we felt the kindness and desire to make the dinner special.

Sashimi Zensai, tuna,yellowtail, salmon..Zero sen… sashimi on top of tuna maki. Curry udon noodles with mushrooms and shrimp, slurped every spoonful....Adam was very helpful waiter.
