We have been fairly regular diners at Zen for years, and before that Sole. Service, food and experience are consistently at a high standard, and we always have a great experience. We go especially for the Spanish food, which is delicious. I highly recommend.
I highly recommend Zen Fusion. The food was fabulous, the atmosphere is wonderful and our waiter Julian was fantastic. This was one of the best experiences we have had in a long time and cannot wait to return.
We had the grilled octopus for a small plate and it was amazing!
Zen Fusion remains one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The service, vibe and flavor consistently deliver. I’m saddened they changed their menu by offering significantly fewer options and no longer serve some of my favorites (eg lettuce cups and sea bass). That said, I’ll keep going back.
The food was okay but the service provided by Diana was horrible from beginning to end. Her greeting at the table was not welcoming if anything we felt she was annoyed by us. She didn’t suggest us any appetizers or asked if we wanted anything we pretty much had to tell her what we wanted. She was not attentive to our table and getting her attention was impossible at times.
We noticed as soon as the regulars came in her demeanor towards them was different more delightful but to us it was cold and annoyed. We never been there and we were celebrating our anniversary and came from Raleigh and to say the foremost this was the worse anniversary dinner we ever experienced in all of our years together.
She didn’t deserve a tip but we gave her one just because we have been in her shoes. My advice to Diana is treat others equally and if you want to be successful in any career please make sure to provide good service regardless of the customer’s nationality.
She doesn’t know what we do for a living and we don’t know her situation but treating others differently because of their color is a no go in this world. She may think it wasn’t noticeable but it was and honestly It is 2021 and we need to get pass that phase and it’s a shame we had to experience that.
Don’t recommend and would never return.
My wife and I attended there last night for dinner. They acknowledged our reservations. The owner was great! Everyone was great, the food and ambience was excellent.
Always a great experience at Zen! This is our favorite Dilworth neighborhood spot. Phong, and Nathan, and Jenny create a warm atmosphere for people to gather, enjoy a well mixed drink, and choose from an excellent, curated choice of Spanish and Asian dishes.
Perfect place for quiet evening and great food. Variety is perfect for people who want different things.
Great food with friends!
We really enjoyed our meal here while in Charlotte. Our waiter was outstanding and steered us to very good choices, especially the Tres Leche cake for dessert - delicious. We also loved the paella dish. My husband and I shared a small order of that plus two tapas and the cake for dessert and we left there fully satisfied.
Zen Fusion was great. The waiter was so accommodating to my vegetarian dtr and very attentive to our table. Food was excellent and restaurant was very clean. Loved it!
First time visitor, will certainly return
My go to restaurant! Great atmosphere, great food, great and pleasant service. Vegetarian options. You will never be disappointed.

Food was excellent. I got the sesame crusted tuna, it was cooked perfect.
Service was excellent!
Hidden gem and go to restaurant
Great food. Love the outdoor seating, but our waiter was just a little odd.
Nice dining experience. My husband's grouper dinner was excellently prepared. My paella was a bit overcooked, yet flavorful.
The best spot in Charlotte- ALWAYS quality service!!!
Will be back!
The team as Zen Fusion always goes above and beyond. From greeting at the door, to knowing your favorite wine, suggesting your favorite dish and all with incredible service. Love it - they’re family!
Food was very good as always. Service was excellent.
Zen is our go-to venue for good value and great service, whether it’s an everyday supper or a small birthday event.
Back to Zen and it was as wonderful as I remembered it!!
The service was absolutely fantastic and the food was excellent. This is such a great restaurant that I often forget about but will put in my top three ‘go to’ restaurants. There is something for everyone.
Always top shelf!
The best restaurant in Charlotte! Excellent food, great atmosphere and amazing service!
Great food and service. Everything tasted fresh. Would def go back.
Fabulous meal! Owners work very hard! Will be back!
We had a wonderful gathering with friends. Nathan pleased some of our friends who are mixed drink connoisseurs with his skills. Phong is a generous host and our food was all excellent. A very nice evening!
Usual excellent food. Service was a little slow. The salmon with wasabi sauce was excellent but the wasabi sauce had no detectable wasabi flavor.
We went there for their Palleta however what really got our attention was the blue cheese calamari. This was our first time there and we would definitely go back just for the blue cheese calamari and the waiter David was very helpful.
Zen's is out go to restaurant when dining with friends or alone. Service is always great (friendly, prompt, helpful) and food is always well prepared and presented.
Great food and even better service⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Menu has great variety. Good service. Will return.
Nice restaurant with many delicious food options. Host and servers were extremely polite and professional.
The food was absolutely amazing I took my wife there for Mother’s Day and I will definitely be coming back again
We haven't dined inside in over a year and chose Zen to be our first indoor dine. We weren't disappointed.. the place was clean, the food was delicious, and great service. We'll be back for sure!
