We were put to a table under a loud music speaker. Switched our-self to the quiet corner table & finding water dripping from the ceiling to one of the chair! Want to watch NHL on TV but no response! Friends with waitress seems drunk, banging & talking loud! Lastly, hardly find 3 different spoons separately for our desserts! Thinking they just want us out ASAP to start their party!!!

I walked in to The Zen at a very quiet time. The lady who took our order was very friendly. Once we ordered, I am sure it came in less than 5 minutes. But when we finished I found the bill a bit expensive but worth every penny of it.

Although it is hard to get a table at lunch sometimes, my experiences at Zen are always positive. The service is always great and the presentation of both the sushi and the fusion dishes are always excellent. The pieces of fish are large and the selection is usually good. A wide variety of sake and asian beer is available. Go at dinner and beat the crowds.
