For 20years, Chef Victor Wang and Owner Chiara Covelli have reigned over their highly acclaimed restaurant… Zen Forrest… known for its Chinese, Korean, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, and Singapore. Award winning lunches and Dinner. Private events, cooking classes. Zen Forrest was known for amazing food, sake, wine and imported and local beers.
When the lease came up at Zen Forrest and they couldn't stay Chiara thought it might be the end of Zen Forrest in New Port Richey. As good things do happen, with the assistance of the new partner, Jay Patel, he found the perfect location on Grand Boulevard in downtown New Port Richey. It is a larger restaurant accommodating over 150 guests, with a Sushi Bar and a sociable, full liquor cocktail bar.

Chef Victor and partners are pleased to share their excitement with loyal Zen Forrest customers and friends and they look forward to hosting you to a new ZEN Kitchen & Bar experience.

    First time at this new location. Downtown is very busy on the weekends and Zen Kitchen is no exception. The service was excellent and our server, I believe his name was Tony, was very helpful and knowledgeable about all of our choices. I had the Korean bibimbap and was not disappointed. A wonderful cacophony of flavors. Others had the Pad Thai and chicken curry. No complaints from anyone. I do recommend making reservations, then come and enjoy yourselves.

    The food was really good. We have tried lunch but it was our first dinner experience. We had the crab Rangoon, pad thai, orange chicken, butter chicken with bread basket and the filet! The only appetizer we didn’t care for was the momo but mainly the tomato paste it sat on. Drinks were also very good! We had the old fashioned and a Prosecco drink that I can’t recall the name. We will be back!

    As usual, Zen rose to the occasion. The Japanese whiskey old fashions are incredible. We tried the Triton roll and were blown away by the flavors. Always a consistently great choice.

    Zen has a great vibe and atmosphere. The menu has a lot of options. Something for everyone. Great flavour. Good service. Decent prices. We will definitely return. We always try to support local small businesses when we can.

    Our waitstaff person we ended up calling her Miss “D.” I believe her first name was Dory. She was friendly and upbeat. Made us feel right at home. Her suggestions and feedback about menu choices were spot on. My husband had zesty orange chicken and absolutely raved about it. He’s a foodie and was well satisfied with the portion size. I had Gulf shrimp lo mein. Prepared exactly how I had requested. And of course before I even ordered we requested to have cheesecake put aside for dessert. They’re always different and delicious. You must make reservations and you will not regret it. We were seated in a booth in the bar area. So a bit noisy but experience was delectable.
