My wife, daughter, and I enjoy this top quality sashimi and sushi restaurant. We visit about once per week. However, there is no beating this restaurant's $8 sushi rolls on Thursday. Better get there early or plan on waiting.

Zen Bistro is a convenient and delicious option for dinner when we are staying in the area. On this visit we were particularly pleased with the Chicken Katsu - - very generous portions and perfectly prepared.

While looking for a close sushi restaurant by airport we found this place. The rolls were so good with fresh fish. We had nigiri and yellowtail cheek also. When in town will definitely go back.

Dinner at this not so big restaurant was really enjoyable. Very fresh and tasty food. It's more an Asian than a Japanese restaurant but it was surely ZEN. Thank you for nice dinner.

Best sushi of the vicinity. Fish is always fresh and rolls are generous. Take out is great, although eating-in is nice -- pretty nice minimalist decoration and good music. The offer delivery through Door Dash.

This place has the best sushi in Millbrae. Fresh and good quality sushi. I love ordering their maguro toro and hamachi toro. Their fresh uni is so delicious! Huge and sweet that melts-in-your-mouth delish! It's reasonable, too! Order the live uni not rolls. At times...More
