Zen Bistro is a quiet, modern and comfortable place to enjoy very good Japanese food. The menu offers a wide range of tasty options. On this visit I had katsudon, which was well prepared. Street parking is limited, but there is a good sized public...More

While looking for a close sushi restaurant by airport we found this place. The rolls were so good with fresh fish. We had nigiri and yellowtail cheek also. When in town will definitely go back.

Dinner at this not so big restaurant was really enjoyable. Very fresh and tasty food. It's more an Asian than a Japanese restaurant but it was surely ZEN. Thank you for nice dinner.

Best sushi of the vicinity. Fish is always fresh and rolls are generous. Take out is great, although eating-in is nice -- pretty nice minimalist decoration and good music. The offer delivery through Door Dash.

We were in town for a few nights and wanted to walk to a restaurant. While there are tons of asian restaurants in Millbrae, this one has the nicest atmosphere so were extremely pleased that the food was even better. We normally take a few...More

Zen Bistro's fish are swimming in the fish tank when you arrive--can't get any fresher. The food is freshly prepared with a deft and delicate hand so the essence of the food's flavor comes through. We've been there for a delicious Dim Sum lunch, and...More
