I recently had lunch at Zen while in town for work. I loved the menu options for lunch, ranging from paella to hibachi to curry chicken. I got the potstickers as an appetizer, and the paella as my entree. The paella was huge and flavorful! The waiter was very helpful and attentive. I definitely hope to be back soon.

Has got to be my favorite restaurant in Charlotte. Even when I call to make a reservation I am greated warmly. My favorite waiter is Jairo but all the staff is professional but also so nice. The food is excellent. My Tapas of choice is the Blue Cheese Calamari. The specials are always great but the Paella Valencia is grand.... More

We eat at a different restaurant in the Charlotte area every Saturday with friends. But on Friday nights, we keep going back to Zen Asian Fusion. The food, atmosphere and service are exceptional. The Tre Ci Luce Cake is my favorite desert.

Different feel mix of Asian and Spanish. Great sangria and the Mrs enjoyed a Ginger Martini. Appetizer was skimpy only complaint Had two orders of spring rolls. The taste was there but the rolls weren't. Enjoyed the salmon wasabi different and the Mrs gobbled up a seared tuna dish. Would definitely come back.

We love Zen Asian Fusion. Have eaten here many times. The food is always fresh, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We have had seafood, Spanish, and Asian entrees. The appetizers are excellent, especially the calamari and the scallops. Service is always good.

I go to Zen often. The food is consistently very good and the service is also. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They are very aware of and accommodate gluten free dinning.
