After a movie in Oldsmar we decided to look for sushi on our way home. People recommended Zen so we figured why not. Quaint little place with an uptown beat. We tried a variety of rolls but their "Nirvana" might be one of the best sushi rolls I ever had. We will make this trip again just for that

Been going to Zen for years. Last night's take out was very bad. Been getting the Beef Fried for years. Container was always full to the top. Now it was half full. Quality was poor taste. Sushi was ok. No Miso soup too. Feel cheated for the price.

Terrible service!! We sat outside on a Friday evening around 700 and were the only ones on the patio. The waitress left water on table and promptly forgot we existed! It took 2 people from our party at 2 different times to just get more water, by 800 we still hadn't had our order taken and just about to leave... More

I have been here about 30 times and I absolutely love it. The food is VERY good, excellent service and great location. Love the vibe of the restaurant inside and out. They also have express take out. On Friday nights a DJ comes and gets the place going with great music. I am a very, very happy and satisfied customer.

Zen is absolutely delicious! You must try the lime beef appetizer, its to die for. The sushi rolls are all great. I especially like the Rock&zen. They're hot food is delicious as well. I've never had a bad meal here. Highly recommend. Yummy!

We were going to have a late lunch, and called ahead to make sure they were open. They said yes, When we arrived no one was in the dining room. I called out several times to no avail. Finally we called on the phone again, and a man came out of the kitchen, saw us and went back in. We... More

This was our second visit to this upscale restaurant in the outdoor restaurant area of International Mall in Tampa. Once again gorgeous and flavorful sushi. The service was friendly and professional.

The decor was nice but a bit different with glass tiles on the floor showing sand and shells below them. The menu is fairly large and there are some combo deals (boxes) for lunch. They do provide more than enough food too. I can't eat Miso soup, so asked if they'd substitute the other soup. I was told yes, but... More

Nice place in the town center area of Westchase. Had sushi, it was average. Dropped $100 for a couple...got far less than I would have expected. Overpriced and underwhelming good.
