“Best sushi ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Zen is a fairly small, modestly decorated place, but oh my is the food amazing!!! My husband and I ordered sushi as an appetizer and it was probably the best sushi I've ever had. Amazingly fresh and the flavors were distinct. Sometimes the fish gets lost in everything else, but not in this case. Our entrees were delicious too. We will definitely be back soon. Very warm and friendly staff.

“Best kept secret in Crestwood/Sunset Hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Zen never disappoints. The food is always good, they serve good portions, and the prices are reasonable. I have never had bad service there whether I am dining in or getting take out. I have two young children and they are always welcome there. The staff usually gives them free treats on the way out! Crestwood/Sunset hills has very few ethnic restaurant options so I was very happy when Zen moved in. I hope they stay around for a long time.

“The Best and Nicest restaurant in St Louis!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This Family serves the best Thai food in St Louis and perhaps the Midwest.
They are extremely nice and humble. The ingredients are always fresh and consistent.
We go at least twice a month and always buy more to take home.
Lunch is a great deal as you get Thai egg rolls and soup free.
You will not be dissapointed!!

“Very Good Food, Good Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

Three of us at lunch at Zen today. Two of us had sushi and one had beef broccoli stir fry. I also had a bowl of Tom Kha soup. The soup was incredible and the sushi was very good, but not the best I have ever had. The restaurant was clean and the service was friendly and fast. It was very good but would not rate it as the best I have ever had.

“My new favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

This by far is my new favorite Thai restaurant. The food was outstanding and the server did a great job answering any questions we had as well as explaining things that made their restaurant different than others.
