Wonderful food.
Nice service.
Pretty inside.
Big TV's for sports viewing.
Bad part is obnoxious loud music.

I had a very pleasant experience. The occasion was monday night all you can eat Sushi rolls. The wait staff was great, and very friendly. A select list of all you can eat Sushi rolls to choose from... Definitely took care of my Sushi fix, along with Sake, and some monday night football. Look forward to going back, and having friends meet up.

We had the pineapple fried rice with jumbo shrimp. It came in a hollowed out pineapple boat with a red pepper flower for garnish. Beautiful presentation and just as delectable! Would highly recommend Zen Culinary.

Great food and live music. Service is awful. I think our server was in high school.

Absolutely excellent- the staff, food, ambiance , and music all contributed to a perfect night out. Fresh, spiced right generous dishes left us anxious to return. Zen is a wonder!

The food was very good and portions sizable but a lot needs to be done about their service. We made reservations two weeks prior for a party of 10. It was also for a time when it was not crowded (415 pm on a Sunday) They had plenty of time to ensure appropriate staff were available to serve us. Instead, they put a new server to take care of us and gave her no help. Then they added 20 percent automatic gratuity which is high even for large groups. 9 of 10 of us had never been there so it was a great opportunity for them to showcase the restaurant for future guests. Instead, they were a huge disappointment for all of us.

Best kept Scottsdale Secret:
Zen is my favorite new place. They have one of the best Happy Hour menus in the city. I can't wait to go back for dinner and lunch and another happy Hour. It's a little out of the way but totally worth the drive. What I loved most was how welcoming they were to my husband and I. You can just tell that they value every customer.

Literally one of the worst experiences I've had. I had to get up to get my own beer, the server came by one time to take our order and never came back, it took 45 minutes for the first round of sushi to come out and that was AFTER waiting 30 minutes for a server to greet our table. I had to get up again because we were not given soy sauce dishes and stood by the front desk for ten minutes before finally asking for a manager. When the second round of sushi came out, my entire roll fell apart. It was an awful experience- I would never come back.
