Zen Restaurant has both Japanese and Thai food. On weekdays from 11 am to 2 pm they have a terrific lunch special. For only $6.99 you get a small but very good salad, a spring roll with plum sauce and a generous portion of the main dish you select from a choice of about 8 different dishes. The service is...

This is clearly one of the best Asian restaurants in the area. I love the spring rolls and the pad Thai. It is a cute atmosphere and a great spot for a date night.

This Restaurant could be much better. the Athmosphere id great but the servers do not show proper costumer service as we like it here in America. and place doubles as storage. They have furnishings that they no longer use all over the place making it kind of tacky. also a little dingy. But the food is good.

Zen has become our favorite restaurant in Banning. They offer excellent Thai food as well as Japanese sushi and other dishes. The servers are friendly and pleasant, the prices are reasonable, and the food is outstanding. The vegetables in their dishes are very fresh, and the sauces can be made mild or spicy, according to your tastes. Some of our... More

We enjoy at least one visit here a year when a golf tournament brings us to the area. The rooks are wonderful, rice bowls terrific and the Won Ton soup is amazing. It's full of veggies, chicken, shrimp and yes, won tons. I really want to try the bananas and ice cream but leave too full each time.

outside is as bad as inside. quite dirty and flies around.. Salmon sushi was dry and tasteless. Tom yum soup is average and for those who know what Tom yum soup look like it is far away from it. we read good reviews, we have no ideas how this is possible. if you pass by try something else...
