I have been to Zen Fusion on a number of occasions and had a great meal. Out-of-town visitors wanted to come so we were there on Saturday night. the food was lacking depth of flavor and was disappointing. I ordered the always wonderful Tres Leches Cake. It was covered with a very sweet frosting and disappointed as well...

David, our waiter, was awesome! Unfortunately, they don't have Sushi anymore, but they still have my Tres Leches cake!

It was ok. Fusion usually means incorporating flavors together. This restaurant offers separate distinct entrees with either Japanese or Spanish but not fused together. The pan fried pot stickers appetizer we’re delicious!

We sat outside and it was a great experience with exceptional varieties. The paella may have been a touch dried out. Would order again.

The only problem we could see is there should have been more people there at 8:30 PM on a Saturday night.

Food is very very good.

The Singapore Noodles is one of the best dishes I have ever had... it's a dry curry dish, no coconut milk, so incredibly delicious! Don't know where else in Charlotte you can get fantastic Spanish AND Asian dishes in one meal. Had the scallops with the roasted red pepper sauce for an appetizer... extremely good. The red curry dish is excellent as well. Great service, romantic patio!

Fantastic experience! Wait staff really knew everything we asked about. He let me sample a wine, which I didn't like, so thankfully I got something else. Food portions were perfect. The sea bass was amazing (Spanish) the red curry chicken had just the right amount of kick. The scallops and shrimp was also quite good. It was my boyfriend's birthday and they surprised him with a delicious (we all shared) giant piece of yummy warm melt-in-your-mouth carrot cake with a candle!!!! Looking forward to a return visit.

Zen Fusion is our go to restaurant on date night or simply "let's eat out" night. It is also perfect with friends as one can converse. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable.

The Vietnamese Beef entree was not as good as other entrees we’ve had before. The meat had no taste, kind of bland. Definitely enjoy going to Zen Fusion, but probably will not order that entree again.

We love Zen Asian Fusion. The menu is varied, the prepared impeccably, David our server is par excellence, the cost perfect, parking easy and the restaurant inviting and relaxing. You want to kick back, enjoy a delicious meal and converse with good friends. Zen Asian Fusion should get 3 Michelin stars. Come, relax and enjoy.

When we first discovered this restaurant, we were immediately attracted to its menu. The idea of combining Asian tastes with traditional Spanish cuisine was irresistible. It seemed the perfect place for my wife and I to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We weren’t disappointed. The staff was well-trained, polite, and efficient. The owner made several trips to our table and made us feel like special guests. Everything we ordered came out steaming hot, and the portions were generous. My wife had the Paella Carne, and I enjoyed the Gambas con Chorizo. It will take several more visits for us to try all the different menu items we had to choose from. We wrapped up our feast with some phenomenal cheesecakes, and vowed that we would definitely be back. The only reason we gave four stars instead of five was that the noise level was really borderline loud. However, since there is no way to predict how noisy a particular crowd will be, my wife and I gave Zen Fusion a pass on that score. Can’t wait for our next visit.

Found this as an OpenTable search and looking for a local but differnt type of restaurant while visiting Charlotte. The menu was quite interesting and the food was fantastic. A blend of Asian and Spanish, although not thrown together on the same plate, but a subtle mix of the two throughout the menu. LOVED the calamari in blue cheese sauce as well as the Mongolian Beef and Spanish seafood stew for dinner.
The owner chatted with us upon arrival and after we were seated and made us feel quite at home. The staff is friendly and very attentive. We sat outside in the back of the restaurant and a cute little patio area to enjoy the summer weather.
We will certainly go back on our next visit to Charlotte and so should you!
