Absolutely excellent food, staff and atmosphere. For appetizers we had the spring rolls and some sushi. For my main entre I enjoyed the rib eye steak with the mashed potatoes and asparagus. I have had this meal three times and every time it was exceptional. I have also been told the sea bass is a bit of heaven. Need for... More

The waitress we had was good. There were five of us celebrating a birthday. The food was good, I do think it i pricey... More

Brought the grandkids for sushi (actually Mac and cheese for the little one). As always, could not have been better. Staff is as good as the food. Lots of other items in the menu too and have enjoyed them too. Love being a regular here.

Had eaten at the older location of this restaurant (on Battlefield) for several occasions and each time food, drinks, and service was excellent. So definitely was looking forward to dining at the new location (on S National). However, my experience at the new location was terribly disappointing. As an entree I ordered the Sea Bass, which had been a fave... More

We went for happy hour because we love the sushi here! It was our first time visiting at the new location. It's great. You can see they have spent quite a bit to make it an enjoyable atmosphere. Our server was excellent (Christina) Happy hour helps to reduce your overall ticket. The sauces here that come with the product (like... More

So I was there for a work Christmas party. Honestly even for a free meal I probably will not go back!! It seemed like they took forever to even get the food to our table. Also taste wise if I was paying for it so not worth the price. Lucky i didn't have to pay for it lol. Not a... More

Did you know Springfield, Missouri was a construction zone of the Continental Railroad. Now has a high per capita ratio of Asian restaurants. My favorite is Ocean Zen. Beautiful and delicious Asian food competitive with any city, especially when considering the moderate prices. I return there time and time again. Give it a try!

Ocean Zen has mediocre tasting food which is well over priced. Not impressed with anything about this restaurant.
