Zen Fusion Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
Went for sushi, since it was on the OpenTable dinner menu, but got there and found out after ordering drinks they stopped serving sushi 2 months ago. Kind of a buzz kill, but food served was tasty. A bit loud and plain in the back near the bathrooms so recommend a table in the main area of the restaurant. Manager checked on us nearly as much as the waitress, so clearly cared about the quality of our experience. Be more transparent about food choices and I’d return if I lived locally.
The restaurant is a fusion restaurant with a variety of Spanish entrees, tapas, and Asian entrees. The service was excellent. The food was with excellent flavor.
There is outdoor heated seating available. We really enjoyed this restaurant. Definitely recommend!
2nd time to Zen for me my wife many times as she works in the area. Started with a great martini with blue cheese stuffed olives
Had several tapas both Asian and Spanish. The pulpo (grilled octopus) was delicious as well as the others dishes we had. Enjoyed the Tres leche cake for dessert.
We have never been disappointed with the food, service, or ambience at Zen Fusion. The fish special this weekend was nicely prepared with jumbo shrimp. The Tapas of garlic shrimp, blue cheese calamari, and the new-to-the-menu octopus were the perfect way to start the meal. Actually, the meal started with a correctly mixed Manhattan on the rocks, not always easy to find in Charlotte.
This place immediately became our favorite spot in Charlotte. There was absolutely nothing that was even remotely bad about Zen Fusion. The food was incredible, making it difficult to not finish every bite. It’s also VERY affordable, making it a great everyday dinner stop or date night. Just wonderful.
We ate here on a Thursday night. Three things were very good...1- 1/2 price cocktails on Thursday night, 2 - our server who did his best and was very good despite the horrible bee sting on his swollen hand, and 2- the tres leche cake which was amazing. The in-between was okay...had two appetizers and two entrees. The appetizers, pot stickers and lettuce cups, were very good but the carne paella(too salty) and the mongolian beef(had no sauce) were so-so at best.
The food was fantastic, I am not picky but thought the octopus was lacking in flavor. It was good just not the wow I was expecting with the ceviche, lamb and scallops that all were phenomenal! The service was great too! Great menu for the wine and tapas week! Thank you for making it worth the money!
