What a deal! Yummy and healthy food prepared quickly. The build your own entrées are great. You can get the protein of your choice, select the type of rice and seasonings. This is my son's favorite restaurant.

This is one of my son's favorite restaurant. He likes to tell them how to make his favorite mix. It is great to have that flexibility. I love the raw tuna, delicious!

I like Zen on Anderson. The food is always consistently good and fast. I wish all the chairs had backs because I don't like sitting on stools with no backs, but it doesn't prevent me from going. Good consistent quality food is hard to beat!

Austin doesn't have so many Japanese restaurant. I'm a Japanse, so I felt Zen's food is not good and not bad. It's typical American-Japanse food.
