Being one to have tried sushi from numerous places, I have found the best so far. First I have to say finding Zen Bistro was a little hard, they do not mention that they are in a mall location which they are. Follow your gps and you will arrive at the nternational Plaza Mall in front of a valet parking... More

The food was fresh and fantastic. My entree (korean bbq beef)was cooked perfectly with the right amount of rice and plenty of Korean beef that was tender and juicy. The service was excellent. Our server was professional, courteous and a pleasure to interact with. We ordered with ease and received our food relatively quickly. The whole dining experience was great.... More

I was lucky enough to live within walking distance of this place when I lived in tampa. I moved out of state, but still keep coming back!! Their drinks are fantastic and the atmosphere is just perfect for a swanky sushi date.

We are finishing our meal as I write this. The food and ambiance are excellent with very large portions. The servers are really not good at all and very "flakey". Not crowded at all but waited 10 minutes for a wine and soda to be brought out. Service improved after that but anything but attentive.

The ambiance is pretty good. It's a nice place but the staff is not the nicest. Our waitress had blue hair but, was not the sweetest when we asked for a table of 6 outside. When we saw her frustration, we kindly told her we would sit anywhere. She brought the menus and we ordered but she was aggravated about... More

The location is tough in the food court area of the mall with a Restoration Hardware being built next door, but really clean, fresh sushi - would highly recommend!

After being subjected to fries, chips, steaks for a number of nights whilst away on business it was great to be able to have a diner that felt healthy. The food had nice subtle tastes, the servers were polite without being overly fussy. The menu is a little limited but more than ample for most appetites. The only negativity would... More

Went for dinner before a concert. The other restaurants at the mall had a long wait, at Zen Bistro we were seated right away - that should have been the red flag. The place was empty except for us and 2 other tables. The service was good. Server was polite and friendly. We ordered 2 rolls, a beef dish and... More
