My wife and I stopped in here for some apps and cocktails while touring around Portland one day, it was awesome! The atmosphere is very Zen haha. They have an amazing cocktail menu, I had some Yuzu ginger sake lemon drop martini, I know it's a mouthful but it was on point. We had steamed dumplings and edamame, both were excellent. I really liked the music playing in the background. Would definitely return. Thanks!

Very fresh ingredients with unique and interesting flavors in familiar dishes. Service was attentive and all it should be. Warm and cozy ambiance, even at lunch. A little pricey compared to similar menus in town, but consistently delicious. quite a few gluten free dishes available. Does takeouts

I look forward to eating at Zen Chinese Bistro when visiting Portland. High quality Chinese food. Lots of gluten free options. Try the Genral Tsos Chicken! Yum!

On our first visit to Zen, we were hopeful with the reviews that we found a good place for dine-in and take-out Chinese food. The restaurant itself is pleasant, clean and the waitstaff friendly. We ordered a mix of dumplings, salad, fried rice and main dishes. With each bite, we could taste that it was freshly made, good ingredients - yet with every dish it was so very bland. If it had been just one item, we could understand. This might be a good spot for folks that don't like even moderately spicy food.
