The place was great except for the child in the next table screaming bloody murder and the oblivious and unconsidered parents

The food is consistently very good, and the service always above the average Central Florida restaurant . There are at least five servers that I can think of who are excellent. I think that may include them all.
The food choices cover a wide range, and tofu can be substituted in most cases. When I ate fish, their Steamed Sea Bass was the very best that I had anywhere anytime. Also the Zen experience is fun for families or group of friends. Again, so many choices, everyone finds what they love.

We go often, though it's a 40 minute drive. Worth the trip as they say.

Seated promptly upon arrival, however after 20 minutes we had to flag down a busboy to ask if he could send a waitress over. After 5 minutes the maitre'd came by and asked if she could help us. After explaining our situation our waitress arrived another 5 minutes later. From there everything went fine. The food was authentic, varied and well prepared. Our food arrived promptly, in the proper order (shared maki rolls, then soup, then main courses) and very tasty. Other than the initial long wait, I would recommend Zen to anyone looking for authentic Chinese / Asian food in the Champions Gate area.

We shared our dietary restrictions with the waiter and had him pick all the sushi rolls we were sharing together for dinner. The choices were excellent and the service was superb. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves sushi.

We enjoyed the food. Sushi wasn't the greatest but for the area not so terrible. A bit pricey as well. Will go every few months. Service was very good. Flavor of seet and sour pork was great.

Best sushi for gluten-free people!! They customized several rolls for us to enjoy. The Zen Experience was delicious! Also there was a separate gluten-free menu with traditional Chinese dishes. Great Sake and wine selections too.

Jeremiah was a great server. He kept us all satisfied with our varied requests. Two people in our group had the Zen experience, a great way to tour the better than average chef selections on their menu. Sushi items are creative and delicious. Be prepared: Zen is priced as a tourist attraction; expensive but the quality of the food exceeds this diner's high expectations.

It was my daughter's 13th birthday and we were staying at the Omni. We let the hostess know and they did a beautiful job with the presentation of her sushi making it look like a dragon. Then at the end they brought out this wonderfully decorated little cake everything was a real treat.

We dine at Zen frequently when we are in the area. The grouper dish is wonderful and the sushi is excellent. If you want an exotic treat, order the Mexican roll; you won't find it on the menu but it rocks with micro-celantro and a freshly chopped pico.

Can't go wrong with that Champions Gate roll as a sushi starter and don't leave town without having the Singapore noodles as an appetizer.

After reading all the wonderful reviews of this restaurant, I was looking forward to a great dining experience. I really wanted to like the food but was very disappointed. We ordered a variety of dishes and found the same flavor palate amongst all of them. The duck was flavorless, the portions were small and not a good value. I might be spoiled Coming from the northeast with a vibrant Asian restaurant scene, but I would not recommend dining at Zen.

Our family celebrated my Husband's 70th birthday at Zen while staying at the Omni in Orlando. Our waitress was incredibly efficient, knowledgeable about the menu with flawless execution of our food and beverage choices (I wish I could remember her name!!) Everything was exceptional and my eggplant entree was absolutely incredible - worth the drive from anywhere! The waitress joined in the fun when producing a birthday cake for my husband by singing along with us. We travel to Orlando often for golf tournaments and always stay at the Omni. No doubt ZEN will be on our "must do" list for many enjoyable meals to come!!

we really enjoyed our food, but our experience was really elevated by our server, i cannot remember his name, we were there on june 24th at 9 pm and the young gentleman (who used to live in Hawaii) was cheerful, knowledgeable and so very helpful with both our drinks and food choices. We are from Toronto Canada and stayed at the OMNI championgate for 4 nights and by far this was our best meal - made even better from the service we received, Lee Colby and guests

Chinatown in London, England has amazing crispy aromatic duck that I have to have whenever I am there. I have never found anything close in the States until now. Zen's crispy aromatic duck is as close to the real deal as possible. So delicious! I will be back again and again and again. Ginger starting salad was perfect and very tasty. The rest of the menu looks equally appetizing and tempting.

We were meeting an old friend who was in Orlando on business and it was a great halfway point since we are from Tampa. The dining room is cozy and dark, but there is enough light that you don't need a candle or flashlight to read the menu. We started with edamame and sushi which were both perfect. Capped dinner off with the banana pudding cheesecake which sounded way too sweet, but was just right--a great recommendation from our server, Luis, who I would highly recommend you ask for if you dine here. Afterwards, go outside and sit by the firepit and have a cocktail!!!

We wanted to go someplace nice without hauling up to Orlando or Disney. This place was totally off the beaten path, and somehow popped onto my radar shortly after looking for a place to eat at Disney. It had exactly what we wanted - sushi for me, stir fry for my husband. And it was quiet. Two thumbs up from both of us! Definitely happy we dined here!

Beautiful décor, great service. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and very nice. She and the cook were accommodating to my gastro issues and willing to modify menu items that were possible to be less spicy. Appetizer of sweet potato tempura was delicious and light and the main course was delicious. Great experience.

Atmosphere was nice, and service was attentive, but food was pretty ordinary. I had the Szechwan duck, my wife had the seafood bird's nest, and our dining companions had the Kung Pao chicken and the General Tso's chicken; all were ok, but none were exceptional. For Asian cuisine, prices were high ($250, with tip, for four). I would not go back.
