this will be my new default sushi place! – A friend recommended this place and I absolutely loved it. Most of these reviews are old so I thought I would give an update on Zen- very creative, yummy rolls- can't complain about the quality at all. In fact, the sushi was well above average, and the house salad was an actual salad and not just weak green lettuce with the ginger lettuce. the sushi prices are unbelievable, the service was more than adequate, and they have pitchers of Kirin! You can't go wrong- we will be back soon.
Below average sushi – I did not try any of the noodle dishes here as I was drawn towards the idea of cheap sushi. The menu boasts very cheap sushi with half price rolls and 50% off specials. However, any price comes with a cost and this place is cheap for a reason. The yellowtail sashimi was decent, but the rest of the sushi was not very fresh at all, fishy tasting, and bland. The spicy tuna rolls had mayo which is not uncommon but I found there was more mayo then fish in the roll and not very spicy. Moreover all the sushi we ate was served very warm. I am not sure how the rest of their food is but if you want sushi go somewhere else!
Friendly, Yummy FOOD – This place has beautiful sushi, and it's delicious & CHEAP. It also has lots of other Korean dishes that are affordable and just as yummy. Best of all, Nan & Joon really make you feel at home every time you come. The Rock-n-roll is a definite favorite! The entire neighborhood loves this place!!
korean food – Although they don't have the traditional Korean barbeque set up at the tables, the food is great. And even more so, the service is excellent. The people are really friendly and if you order take-out they offer some edamame while you wait.
Cozy sushi... – My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place in the freezing cold winter (9 degrees) because I was craving sushi. They let you bring in your own bottles and enjoy really really fresh sushi!
The walls have cute marker drawings all over it and make the place feel even more friendly! Good choice (a bit expensive)...
