My family and I have been coming here for years. The back patio is kid friendly and the service is great. It also has heat lamps and plenty of seating and light. The cucumber salad and miso soup are a great start. I highly recommend the Aliso Viejo Roll and the No Kiss Roll Our kids love the Terriyaki boat.... More

The sushi was good. The restaurant needs an overhaul. The tables and menus felt sticky. Too much junk piled around.

Had the Sashimi appetizer, and the Alaskan roll. Sasha (my daughter) ordered the soy beans and the La Paz roll. The La Paz roll has a crispy soft shell crab in it. Everything was delicious and fresh. For drinks a small hot sake and an ice tea. Total bill with tax was 35.00. We sat in the patio on back... More

This is a small sushi bar with a decent selection of rolls. I've been there twice and it was pretty good both times. The alaskan roll is my favorite so far.

The food is okay! Not the best sushi I've ever had, but prices are reasonable. The waiters though seem to be in a rush to get you out of there!!

I've been coming here since my son was born in 2007. It's like family. Aside from the staff always saying hello and welcoming us with open arms, the sushi is delicious! Grab a tall Kirin, start with an Octopus salad, and follow with a Sunset Roll. You won't be disappointed.

My family and I have been regulars at Zen Sushi for many years. It's a welcoming, cozy place where you can chat with all the folks at the sushi bar, or get a table for 4. Want more spice on your spicy? No problem. They'll customize anything you like. The sushi is always great, and if you're into rolls, they... More

My boyfriend and I just stopped by for a dinner after just driving by and seeing this place. It turned out to be a really small restaurant with the most delicious sushi. Everything we ordered was just fantastic. Some of the best sushi we have had and we are big sushi eaters! They also have great lunch prices. Highly recommend... More
