Zen Japanese Restaurant
Pricey, but absolutely delicious. A fantastic splurge with innovative cuisine.
Great service and creative sushi along with the usual standbys
Food and service is always outstanding. It’s one of our favourite local options
My dining companion said " This is so spectacular! Don't you wish that you could this way every day?"
Excellent food. Every time. Never disappointed. Although the cocktails they serve are not my favourite, fir example I do not like having ice in my martini glass.
I went there for Dine Out. I was surprised by the prices on the menu. However, it was very good value for Dine Out dinner. Service was good. Ambience was mediocre.
We love Zen. Have been going there for years. It has beautiful and creative dishes. The professional chefs are dedicated to fine food. The dishes, the menu, the plating are all beautiful.
The special rolls are very good. We sat at the bar and watched the 4 sushi chefs work.
Fuimos con amigos.
La comida es muy buena. Creo que el mejor sushi de west y north Vancouver.
Food was amazing,serviceis
Male server is always so friendly and outgoing. Female server is cranky and doesn’t want to be there.
We have been going to Zen for many years, and have always enjoyed the food and service from Lauren who has served us for many years,
Excellent meal. We eat there often and it is always great food but Friday night it was the best we've had.
The lunch was wonderful and the service was excellent!!
Delicious, fresh and customized to delight by our fantastic server- thank you Zen our dining experience was amazing!!
An excellent blend of service and very high food quality and taste. One problem was sun light coming in through West window, plus mirror effect from another adjacent window. Just about drove our guests and myself spare as could not get away from the glare. Hurt our eyes it was so intense. Blinds were eventually drawn, but it took 30 min to get that and the fix was minor. Sunglasses in the shower I've heard of, but not in such a fine restaurant. Recommend strongly you fix this one. Other guests might get litigious -- though this one put up with it, the food was so good.
Food is decent but overpriced. Service was sub par. Waitress wasn’t the most attentive. I phoned them on Monday before they opened and left a message to make a reservation and over a week later, I still haven’t heard back from them. Very disappointing and anticlimactic. .
The New York steak was mediocre — seemed to be short staffed.
Zen is always fabulous. Excellent and unique choices with wonderful seasonal offerings.
Best Sushi in Vancouver. Great service. On elf our favourites!
This is a fantastic restaurant. The Ebi dumplings are fantastic. The sauce that they serve them with is yummy. The ocean wise prawn tempura are perfect. The California roll is the best anywhere.
The service is second to none. The hostess is so welcoming and Lauren the server is second to none.
The homemade peach pie with ice cream was better than delicious. And the pie was for our anniversary!
Not our first time at Zen and always a positive experience. Dinner in two at 6:00 great, as not busy and service very quick. The lady waiter was very attentive and informative, making suggestion to suit our taste. Sable fish cooked different was the highlight of the evening. Not at the expense of the two maki and appetizers also excellent.
We had two complex sushi rolls. To our surprise the fish was cooked and not raw. They were not nearly as special as the ingredients in the description. The noodle salad was swimming in a dressing, kind of like a soup.
We often visit Zen for family dinners and are never disappointed with the quality of food or the excellence of service. I recommend all my friends who are looking for a quality Japanese food experience to visit Zen.
Great food and service was excellent. Delicious sushi on the patio on a nice summer Vancouver evening...hard to beat that
Zen is always good. Always reliable. And I always enjoy the high quality of the food.
Server was knowledgeable and thoughtful
I’ll be back to sure!
Amazing food, very nice and friendly staff!
Awesome service and great food!
Great genuine server. Expensive, but best sushi on North Shore.
we have been going to Zen for years and it has always been a great experience, the staff have been there a long time and we know them well. The owner is a great person, always greets my wife and I when he see us enter the restaurant and so do the staff. I recently took my Granddaughter there for dinner and she was impressed as she loves Sushi and lives in Toronto and she mentioned to me that the Sushi at Zen was the best she has had ever.
Fantastic food. The service is impeccable,efficient and friendly.
The oceanwise prawn tempura are so fresh and absolutely delicious. As was the dynamite roll. The best I have ever had. The ebi dumplings are really really delicious. The sauce is to die for.
This is the best Japanese food in the lower mainland.
Excellent creations, excellent quality sushi and related products. Great and friendly service. We were sitting outside, so hard to guess the noise level inside.
Great in every way. We will be back and will recommend it to many people
Food and service are always top notch!
We always have a great experience. The food is consistently great, as is the service. We highly recommend this restaurant!!
Great lunch. The service was 5star.
The ebi sunomono is absolutely fantastic. They melt in your mouth.
The dynamite roll with Oceanside prawns were the best that I ever had even for here
Other restaurants seerve this and it is gummy or loaded with mayo.
This was made fresh and it was so so flavourful
Both food and service were incredible.
The service was fast and friendly. The sashimi pieces were a nice size. The scallop roll was very different. Very good.
