Zen Sushi & Sake
Spicy miso broth
Japanese style pork belly, bok choy, nori, negi
9 pcs of tuna, salmon, yellowtail
Very good. It’s hard to give 5 star service, however service was good and so was the food. We will be back.
Items marked gluten free, then coming with sauce that contains gluten. Happened the past two experiences here.
Sushi (sorry Cali Rolls don’t count) is one our favorite date night whether on vacation or everyday living and we’d often heard others speak highly of Zen… we concur. Solid all around… miso not to salty, with great ingredients, edamame perfectly streamed, killer seaweed salad (Kaisa), Ginger Salad dressing a bit more garlic than expected but a nice touch (kind of Asian Ginger meets classic Caesar). Tried about 10 different fishes - all but the Benito was delicious… it’s was a bit “off”… great service. Good Sake, wine, and Japanese whisky selection.
Adam provided excellent service as he always does. The new owner/manager introduced herself and brought us a free dessert, and the food was excellent. This is one of our favorite local restaurants. Highly recommend Zen!
Best sushi in the area! Love the presentation—especially the sake!!!
We love this place !!
Now that Tomo is closed, we have been looking for a new sushi spot. We were not disappointed with Zen. The ambiance is nothing to write about, the space is utilitarian at best. We were happy to be seated at one of the 3 booths where we had a little separation from the other tables. The service was prompt and efficient. The nigiri and rolls were all fresh and flavorful. We especially enjoyed the big eye tuna. I was very pleased that they made a delicious spider roll for us even though it is not on the menu. Overall, a good experience, we will definitely be going back when the next sushi craving hits!
Nice vibe and very good sushi! Would dine here again.
Food was amazing and we loved the atmosphere! Service was good but slow doing to being short hand as is everyone! We can’t wait to hear back. Perfect place for a date night!
Really nice place to eat!
Great food, service and atmosphere. Sushi was excellent.
This is our go to dinner spot. Love it.
Zen has become one of my new favorite restaurants. I will definitely be returning.
This is our go to sushi place. We always get the chefs Choice. It’s fresh and enjoyable. Definitely recommend
My husband is Japanese and has very high standards when it comes to sushi and Japanese food. We have never had a bad experience at Zen. The fish is fresh and beautifully prepared, the atmosphere is quiet with music for ambiance and the wait staff is attentive without being intrusive.
Nice evening. Closed it down with some great staff there, very friendly and great sushi 🤙🏼
Best sushi in Lexington by far! Our waitress was great and helped us navigate the menu, the raw sushi was amazing and so fresh.
Continue to have good food and service at this restaurant. Not real loud so you can have a conversation and nice atmosphere to dine in.
Creative and delicious food; great saki presentation, and wonderful service!
Best Nigiri in Lexington!
Wonderful service and knowledgeable staff.
The best food we have had in a long time. Definitely plan to make the trip more often!
Best sushi in Lexington for quality and reasonably priced.
Glad we went there for date night! The service was fantastic and the seafood was wonderfully fresh.
One of our favorites. The food is excellent.
The service was excellent the sashimi was perfect could not ask for a better sushi restaurant.
Fantastic quality and setting.
We like this place. Not crowded, quiet, good service. When our server forgot (not for long) to bring us a second sake after we ordered it, she comped it for us. I had the curry udon with shimp and flounder, and was pleased that it was a seafood broth. Delicious, piping hot, and way more than I could eat in one sitting. My companion had 2 pieces of mackeral nigiri and ramen. He said both were good, "but not the best ramen ever." Overall a nice experience. Next time we want to try one of the coctails that we saw being served across the room.
Amazing food beautifully presented. Our server was friendly with perfect timing and made excellent recommendations. Can’t wait to go back:
Looking for sushi? This is the place. Food was fresh and presentation was flawless. We will be back. Definitely recommend!!
