Visited Zen after reading the positive reviews. I had some Nigiri sushi, sashimi, and some tempura. I also ordered an Asahi beer. The bill, with tip, came to $45.00. The food was all excellent but it seemed expensive for what I ordered.

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...More
