Quality Asian and Spanish Food

The combination of Asian and Spanish/Latin food is a perplexing mix unless you know that the restaurant combined two of their restaurants in other parts of Charlotte to make up this combination. Do not let that put you off. This is a quality restaurant! The Thai shrimp hot and sour soup is... read more

Love Zen. Been going there years. Food is first class delicious. The atmosphere is beyond friendly as the servers are pro and really, really good people. Phuong is getting a bit proud of his food (price wise) but i can't complain a whole lot because we keep going back there which tells you we still think we're getting a pretty... More

We've been to Zen on three separate occasions. It was great on all three trips, and I thought their sushi was top-notch. Very good selection on the sushi menu. Would definitely go again, but it is on the other side of town for us. The prices were just about right for what you get. Oh, and on one trip we... More

We were staying in Dilworth so it was just 1/2 a mile away. Before we walked in we had an encounter with a family walking out who raved about the restaurant, we were seated promptly & Hiram was our server. Hiram was knowledgable, attentive, and fun. The menu itself confused my tastebuds, in a good way. I couldn't decide if... More

We came down from N.H for a family visit. We were here for a week and came to Zen for dinner one night. We found the best food in Charlotte. We enjoyed Sushi, steak, beautiful seafood and had a great waiter named Hyro. The extremely pleasant hostess Jen made the evening complete. What a great find.

Where to begin? You ever eat something so delicious that you don't know what to make of it? That is what happened when I ate here. I had the tilapia and shrimp that was made in a spicy coconut cream sauce. It was one of the best dishes I have had in my life. I also had a cucumber martini,... More

The food and the service are both fabulous. Eclectic in the sense that the menu selections are Asian Fusion, but they also offer a number of great dishes with Spanish flair.
