A word from Zen Restaurant - Alameda
ZEN Asian Fusion Tapas & Lounge opened its doors on April 2008. The red and black dining room, decorated with red and white Asian lanterns and sofa cushion seats along the wall, offers a modern, trendy feel. Our specialties include a fusion of Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese, Italian and Hawaiian cuisines, making sure each dish looks as good as it tastes. Along with an extensive list of small plates (tapas) for you to share, we also feature specialty sake and soju based cocktails and a thoughtful wine selection. ZEN has been voted “Best New Restaurant” in 2009 and “Best Asian Restaurant” in 2010 by Alameda Magazine. We’ve also been featured on the Food Channel and CBS Eye on the Bay.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a party of 11 and the restaurant was overwhelmed. The food all came out at different times and late. In fact, they even forgot to about two of the entrees until we were ready to leave. The food was bland and very average. The food is overpriced for what you get, and most of the what they call tapas were kids size meal. Case in point, the pizza was 5 inches in diameter, tasteless, and soggy -- worse than a frozen meal. Highlight was the cocktails were decent. The ambience was nice so I had high hopes walking in, but was sorely disappointed with the food and lack of service."

  • "Menu is Japanese fusion with many interesting daily quirky specials. Truly excellent execution and service. With reasonable wine and sake list, could not ask for better. Worth a special trip"

  • "Zen has an eclectic and interesting menu. The culinary influences must come from 4 or 5 different cuisines. The food is good, the presentation is stylish and prices are very reasonable."

  • "I was worried about this place at first because of the location, but everything changed after my first bite. i have spent way over a hundred dollars for me and my girlfriend at other places trying to find the best food. At Zen I spent only 86 something for so much food where some foods piquant and others succulent, just everything we ate was appetizing. Let me not forget to mention appealing, so looks and taste fantastic."
