We have always enjoyed dining at Zen Fusion. The menu offerings are extensive and inviting, seasoning exceptional, and service prompt and courteous. Glad we had a reservation Saturday because the restaurant was very busy -- and still our wait time for food was short. Our Jumbo shrimps & scallops Cantonese and Churrasco De Cerdo were great!

The food was very good, and new server was polite and prompt. The only downside is trying to decide among the many menu options. We got a little of both Spanish and Asian, and both were equally fine.

Excellent service from the time we walked in. Food was really good. Vieras de Miro was an excellent choice. The covered patio is a great place to sit during sunset.

We've been eating at Zen Fusion for the last 11 years....The food, wine and restaurant are excellent...Special recommendation to David, on the wait staff, who we always ask for when making a reservation (also for the last 11 years). Special note to the tapas and the DEEElicious Paella...David makes great wine recommendations. If you are near DILWORTH in Charlotte, for business or a night out, stop by Zen's and make your own decision.....2 THUMBS UP!!!

The moment we entered the restaurant we were greeted and seated at our table. Our order was taken for appetizers and drinks ( recommendations made by our server was spot on) calamari with blue cheese was delicious. The entrees a curry dish and special of the day fish with shrimp and vegetables was outstanding. The dessert a milk cake was light and also very good. I enjoyed the atmosphere, food and hospitality at Zen. We plan to visit again when our friends come to town as well as putting this restaurant in our restaurant rotation.

We have been here several times and we usually get an Asian inspired dish. However, this time we each got something from the Spanish side of the menu, and it was by far the best food we have had there. I got the pork tenderloin. I don’t remember what my husband got. The service was great!
We were banished to the kid corner with our daughter ;), but that was fine with us as we had the section to ourselves.
We will continue to come back!

First time trying this restaurant. Food was delicious. Best Calamari appetizer we have ever had. We each had a different main dish and everyone said their's was delicious. They do not have sushi anymore even though it may say it on the website, so take note if that's what you are after. The service was outstanding! Overall this place was excellent. I highly recommend.
