Great selection --we ordered Spanish wine so went with the Spanish style tapas. The mussels were not very good (we couldn't finish them) and our server, surprisingly, took them off of our bill because of that. Everything else was very good. My husband, who is vegan, was offered a very nice plate of food that was not on the menu and that he very much enjoyed. He often has to settle for some underseasoned, uninspired plate of vegetables and tasteless pasta but that was not the case here- I was very impressed. The other couple and I shared potatoes, calamari, scallops (my favorite of the dishes!), stuffed peppers, croquettes and all quite good and the overall price was reasonable. I would certainly go there again and would recommend it.

Awesome food and server (Rosie)! Tres Leches cake was absolutely amazing. Only minor complaint was that the bench for the booth seating was very uncomfortable. It was like sitting on a downward slope. Would still recommend and visit again.

We have followed the Spanish Mediterranean menu for 20 years back when it was Ole Ole. We love the Asian fusion aspects that are part of the menu now. The management/owners know us, the bartender knows us and the servers know us which makes dining at Zen Fusion at the hands of these caring, gifted professionals an absolute delight. It is our favorite restaurant in Charlotte. We drive from Kannapolis to dine there whenever we can

Valentine’s Day,

We went with another couple and, as always, had a great and enjoyable dinner. Zen is one of our top 3 “ go to “ restaurants with a great combination of great food, an always pleasant wait staff, and a nice atmosphere. Phoung, the owner, has this place consistently excellent. Can’t say enough good about this place; I have several favorites; you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

My wife and I always enjoy eating at Zens. We take friends, colleagues and visitors because of the excellent food and the friendly service. One business visitor who was actually treating us but gave a choice of where to go was impressed by the quality of food and also by the reasonable prices. The duck breast special this week was as fine as in any good French Bistro.

We really enjoyed our recent dinner here. The menu was extensive and varied. Our cocktails were delicious and the main courses were fantastic. Service was fast and the owner/manager came to our table and thanked us for dining there. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning!

We were uncertain about Zen Fusion before going. We wondered about the Spanish and the Asian. Our questions were answered with excellent choices from each group. We appreciated the choices and the excellent food that followed. Our wait staff was most friendly, and we appreciated their help. Overall, it is on our list to return for another wonderful experience.

First time visit made on recommendation of my wife. She was right: I thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was so very good - cooked just as I asked. Good service and noise level was blessedly low so we could talk across the table instead of shouting. Will be back soon.

We wanted sushi, but they no longer have sushi..the menu was changed a few months ago according to the waitress. Disappointed in the fact that our food took about 45 mins and my husband’s food was cold when we were served..seemed as though it had been sitting a while. Food was tasty. Nice atmosphere.
