    The place was empty on a Saturday night. This was disappointing because being the only people there made us uncomfortable. It also made the minimalist and industrial decor seem very cold. The food and service were good but I don't think we'll be going back. There was nothing special or exciting to make us go out of our was to return. For us, this was an excursion out of our way to try something new that had received excellent reviews. Those reviews seemed exaggerated now.

    The sushi was OK, but the service was very odd. They were 'reworking' the wine list and ourt of everything but two wines - neither very good. Won't go back.

    Me and my team of 10 had catering plans fall through. We booked via Open Table an hour before seating. From sit down to check everything was great. We were quickly seated, questions answered and orders taken. Staff was attentive but not intrusive. Atmosphere was inviting. Food hit the spot for all. Everyone enjoyed their meals - even the least adventurous eaters among the group. Held a 60 min. meeting in 20 min.

    Go for the food and hope you don't get our waiter. Brought the wrong drink, argued it was right, spilled sauce on the last of our edamame with no offer to replace, no personality. Atmosphere was okay. We ate early before a show. Few customers. Cooks and servers hanging out at the bar watching a strange movie on the bar tv and talking loudly. Would go again and hope for a betterf experience because of the food.

    Zen was such an enjoyable restaurant. It was very easy to make reservations, even on Valentine's Day. The owner was most personable and very entertaining. He set the tone for a pleasant dining experience. The food was superb and quite flavorful! At a glance, it just apears to be "a restaurant on the corner"....but once inside, the real discovery begins. Very well embellished and warming. Vacation-like feel.

    Very good sushi and Thai restaurant on the west side of Georgia Tech. Hard to rate crowd and noise early on a quiet Sunday evening. Waitor was enthusiastic amateur but the owner was very friendly. The food - sushi and Thai - was very good, large portions, reasonable prices.

    Went on Valentines Evening prior to basketball game at GT. Location was convienent, parking was great. We had early reservations. Not many people there but only one waitperson. Took a long time to get drink orders. They did not have the wine we selected. One person in the group ordered a martini. It showed up about the same time as the main course. Once we were finally served, the food was great! But the service put a real damper on the evening. This weas my first visit, and we will try it again in hopes that the lack of service was a fluke.

    This is an AMAZING place! It's so great that my aunt and mom, who were skeptical about it in the first place, can't wait to go back. My aunt is excited and says she wants to go for her birthday. I had a party of 15 for my birthday, and the owner, bartender, and waitress were more than accommodating when they stayed and kept the restaurant open an hour and a half after closing, just for me! The food was beyond expectations. Everything I ordered and all that my friends and family ordered was delicious. The drinks were great. The service was quick and nothing came back incorrectly or improperly made. I swear this restaurant is the epitome of perfection. This place deserves to be much more popular. Go there!

    I reserved a table for 8 with my coworkers at lunchtime last week, and ZEN on Ten had no trouble accommodating us, because the restaurant was completely empty.They allowed us to have separate checks -- nice -- but the waiter was visibly annoyed when asked.I try to stay within the guidelines of a Paleo (paleolithic) diet, and there is a CrossFit gym right next door to this place. So I popped my head in and asked the trainer on duty what she recommended to eat at ZEN on Ten.She told me that the only foods they offered that were within the Paleo guidelines are chicken skewers and lettuce wraps, so that's what I ordered.The wraps were decent, but the skewers were overcooked. With tap water, my bill came to $19 w/ tip. Ripoff.

    I've been several times before. Went on a Tuesday night. They could not find my reservation, but there was plenty of space for my birthday party of 10, so we were seated right away. Our table was right by the window and front doors, which was great for the view, as well as made it easy for my straggling guests to come in and spot us, right away. The food was excellent! I tried the "Yummy Roll" for the 1st time and it was a hit with everyone. The service was very good as well. It was like a private party, without paying to rent the place out! This was the first time, most of my guests had dined there and almost everyone loved the food and whole experience. It is one of my favorite spots, so I will certainly be back again.

    First time here, was surprisingly impressed with the food and service. Atmosphere was also nice, place is well decorated. Only thing that was off were the drinks, they were pretty bad. We tried two of their signature drinks and they just weren't good at all. Could just be an off night for the bartender maybe.

We ordered from the sushi menu & their sushi is up there with MF. I would definitely recommend the Shrimp Extreme Roll. Our server was great and he checked on us often to see if we needed anything. They had a band singing cover songs which we enjoyed too.

    I'm biased because I've known the owner for many years, but Zen on Ten is great! You can't go wrong with either side of the menu -- the sushi is great, and the Thai food is delicious! If you go for dinner, make sure to try one of the specials. I don't believe I've ever ordered and entree from the menu and have never been disappointed.
