Zen Sushi & Sake
Great tasting food, great looking food, picture worthy. Very fresh, lots of choices, all the social distancing needed. I missed sushi in California, this made up for that.
We always have a great meal and friendly service at Zen. Beautiful presentation of meals, delicious drinks. Fresh ingredients.
Good food, great wine selection, nice food presentation
Great spot for excellent fresh, flown in, sushi. Unusual combinations of superb flavors.
Great food and the shrimp tempura was amazing. Sushi was fire!
This is the closest to a traditional Japanese sushi restaurant I have been to since returning to the U.S. They have both American sushi and Japanese sushi options, as well as a large amount of sake, shochu, and American alcohol options. There were also ramen, curry, and udon as well.
The service was impeccable and the fish was absolutely delicious. Next time we are out that way, we will definitely be back.
Consistently high quality food - best sushi in Lexington! Service is excellent and ambiance is very nice. Only place I have gone inside to eat during COVID.
Good food and good price
Sushi was creative and delicious!
Good sushi. Very good tempura. Clean. Friendly service.
Lovely setting, excellent plating of food that tasted fantastic. We will be back!
This was my first visit and it was amazing. I'm not a typical sushi person. I went outside my comfort zone and tried new things. Everything was outstanding. The staff were so helpful and friendly! Can't wait to come back!
This restaurant is always superb - food, service exceptional. Doing a great job post-COVID - it’s the only place I feel comfortable eating out!
Excellent service on our first visit to Zen. The pan-fried dumplings were fabulous! I also enjoyed the Japanese Curry Udon and the Lychee Saketini. The atmosphere was nothing special but we will be back!
Best sushi we’ve ever had and Debbie provided outstanding service!!
One of our first outings since the shutdowns ended. Staff was very nice and took necessary precautions. The food was great! After learning it was our anniversary, the staff gave us a fried cheesecake (hard to believe cheesecake could get better but it does!) Overall wonderful experience and we will definitely be back.
Excellent sushi. Our favorite place for sushi in Lexington.
The food, as always, was beautiful, flavorful and a delight to the taste buds!
Sushi Zen has the best and freshest sushi in Lexington.
Best German Tso Chicken around
This was our first time and we will definitely be back. This was a group dinner with friends. The location is in a strip mall at Beaumont. It was more quiet than we anticipated. The reserved environment would be more well suited for date night/dinner for two. We had a few appetizers/salads for the table. The dumplings were delicious; a must try. We tried multiple maki rolls. My favorites were the Latin Heat roll and the Mango Tango roll. Everyone was very pleased with the freshness/quality of the fish. They had Sapporo in the 22 oz. can which is one of favorite beers. Deborah was a delight, attentive without being intrusive. Cheers!
Fish is always fresh and delicious!!! Best sushi in Lexington!!
Zen is the beat Sushi restaurant in Lexington. Other places are larger and more commercialized, but if you are looking for the highest quality Sushi and a great experience, go to Zen!
Excellent sushi . Always high quality .
Never had a bad meal here. You can get a healthy meal here and not have to suffer a bland tasteless meal while you have it. Give it a try.
The food was delicious. My son said the best sushi he has ever had. While our server was apologetic, the service is a little lacking. Not very attentive to us. The bill was high, but food quality is also very good. Atmosphere was nice. I would go back!
Came here for dinner with my family. Was attracted to description of fresh fish flown in multiple times a week. Facility is nothing special but the sushi and freshness of the fish was one of the best we have had. We had the lamb entree and a couple of their prepared rolls. (Dragon and krunch rolls). Also ordered the chefs sushi selection, all of it was outstanding. Make sure you try the chefs selection flown in from Japan. Service was also outstanding, we will be back!
Excellent marks for food and service!
I've been here multiple times and it never disappoints. Although the sushi is sometimes slow to come out, it's ok, because good stuff takes time. Also tried the ramen this time. It was way better than I expected. Can't wait to go back.
Saki and sushi rolls were wonderful. Great service. Will be back.
We come here often. Freshest fish and best composition and flavor of any sushi in the region.
It was an awesome experience. Everything was perfect. Great atmosphere. Great food. Great service. The place is sophisticated and elegant. It is a great place for an intimate dinning experience!
Best sushi and Lexington with a wonderful atmosphere!
Always good. Large selection of fish. Would have liked a better option of cold sake and some sea urchin
Amazing food! We’ll be back!
Outstanding quality . Helpful friendly staff
I loved how quiet this restaurant was. A lot of sushi restaurants are loud and it was so nice to have a peaceful date and great food.
Our first time at Zen did not disappoint. The sushi specials were the best as far as taste for the raw fish. Regular tuna and salmon sashimi were lacking flavor, but otherwise fine. Next time we will just go straight to the good stuff. Japanese pickles and fresh-grated wasabi root were both excellent additions for our meal. Staff was attentive and helpful.
The food was great, complete surprise based on location. The fish was incredibly fresh and prepared very well. Our server was attentive but not overly so.
