Everything was great. I started with a Fusion Margaritta that was yummy. Chorizo App was delicious... !
My edamame wasn’t the best but ... who cares. It’s like bar nuts.
My lady friend had the salmon and I went with the Tuna.
I would say that I expected more Asian flair but it was actually kind of a Spanish tapas place. With some Asian choices. Overall everybody was super nice and very attentive. Next time I might try the paella but I am pretty picky when it comes to that.

Great atmosphere, wonderful food, and timely excellent service. The octopus tapas is fantastic! The Asian Thai dishes were extremely flavorful and the Tres Leches dessert is a must! This restaurant is a neighborhood gem!

I was only talking at the table that the best place in the world to eat sea food was Cape Town in South Africa. Well, you made me eat my words literally ! Our meals were outstanding and quite simply delicious! We will return for sure and have already told our friends where to go for outstanding food,service and value for money.

The food was very good. The waitstaff was very good but felt a little rushed. Appetizers came out very quickly and then dinner the same. Could have used a little more time.

Zen Fusion is probably my favorite restaurant in Charlotte. The food is always delicious, well-prepared and attractively presented. The service staff are friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. The daily food special is just that - special. In my opinion, this is absolutely one of the best restaurants in the city.

One of our favorite restaurants in the city. I love going to the restaurant even during this stressful time. The staff is awesome, and I always feel like they want each person to enjoy the experience in their restaurant. Some items were not available right now, so I had to try something new, and I was extremely satisfied with my new option. We will be back for more.

My husband and I visited Zen Fusion for our anniversary and it was a wonderful experience! As new parents in a pandemic, we haven’t been able to get out much - it was a much needed date night made fantastic by the great food and amazing service! We enjoyed dinner on the patio and were surrounded by a lively atmosphere and delicious smells. The owner/manager made every table feel welcome and was truly a jack of all trades! Can’t wait to go back :)

It was good for the times we are in. It was different eating inside by a wall where I could only see in front of me. However the food was as good as usual and it was so good to see our favorite waiter still there though all of this. This restaurant is in our neighborhood and we will continue to support it. They have great Paella and the best Tres Leche which I brought home.

This was our first time visiting and I must say we'll be back. Everyone was extremely nice and with the COVID-19 going on, made sure we were safe. All staff was very helpful with menu questions as well as suggestions. Food was amazing, my boyfriend who's a very picky eater really enjoyed his meal. Thank you!
