I tried many Japanese restaurant and many sashimi. The one from Zen was not the best one and also other dishes were just average.

The sushi here at Zen was fantastic. Fresh and creative. We also had the best vegetable fried rice I have since leaving San Francisco. I highly recommend popping in for a bite or togo. The service was good.
