We had hibachi chicken and steak and shrimp with soup, salad, fried rice and Krazy Dragon sushi special. We all enjoyed our meals. Great service too.

I just love Zen Sushi. I started going there way back in 2003 and it is always delicious. The owner and staff are friendly and attentive and we always have a pleasurable experience. We love the lunch specials!

Awesome little hole in the wall. Fantastic fresh made sushi. Nothing fancy, just delicious. Fresh crisp salad, flavorful miso soup.

Serving inside and outside / it’s located on an elevated level so you’ll need to climb steps. Staff are friendly - food is really good

We ate here a week ago, March 27th, and Cam was our server. We got the the restaurant later at night, and few people were in the facility. Cam seated us at in the corner, at the most comfortable booth/table. He was a most attentive...waiter, and you could tell he was genuine, sincere, and enjoyed his life and being there. We felt very taken care of and our waters were always filled, and he even noticed we were out of the regular soy sauce ! He made some funny jokes with us about doing a magic trick with the tray filled of soy sauces, and it was very enjoyable. Thank you Cam for your presence and wonderful attitude!More

We stopped through for lunch recently and were pleased with our experience. The service was fast and thorough and the waiter was knowledgable. The miso soup was hot and well-flavored. The sushi was good with rice that was properly cooked - not sweet or too...vinegary. Prices were all reasonable. We ate outside and cannot speak to the counter service. The only negative was the shopping center itself which is not well maintained.More

We used to frequent Zen Sushi until we learned it is the 2nd Best Sushi in Asheville. Just behind Green Tea in Asheville # 2 Regent Park Blvd by Sams. But in downtown area Zen is closer and worth a visit.

A small place situated upstairs in a row strip mall. But you can watch the men slicing your sashimi. I love the sushi and tempura. But my absolute favorite is the Tempura Banana Split!!!!

My family and I have eaten at Zen Sushi many times, but on a recent visit we noticed the quality of their sushi has gone down. It wasn't bad, but we definitely didn't enjoy it as much as we used to.

The menu is extensive with many choices other than sushi. Prices are reasonable and service is great. We eat here on a regular basis and have never been disappointed.
