My initial visit to Zen 16 was due to a Groupon deal, while not even being aware of where it was located (other than Bel Air, MD). The address only told me it was located in a shopping center that I had been to hundreds of times yet never recall seeing "Zen 16" restaurant. It's located in the hidden corner... More

Sushi connoisseurs have to be careful. You can rely on Z16 for great sushi all the time. With a Sushi Bar ( watch the chef) and dining room seating, the Asian food is very good too. Call ahead for ready to P/U carry out.

Sushi was pretty good-but I have certainly had better. The waitstaff weren't very available when we went for lunch in March-and we were the only ones in there.

Best sushi in Harford County! We selected the Maui Roll (pictured), paused after eating half the roll to take photograph. Also, ordered Black Dragon, Zen 16 and Koni Su and TNT rolls. All fresh& delicious!

The staff are friendly and know us on a first name basis. I have gotten my family hooked and the atmosphere is fantastic. The sushi is the best locally and never disappoints. I'd recommend the maui, black pearl, and sweet potato rolls for novice sushi lovers. My taste is beach, so end the trip with mango sticky rice and you'll... More

My husband and I love sushi and we've been coming here for seven years. The lady who seats you may seem a bit abrupt, but she really isn't at all. If you have any special requests, they are very willing to accommodate. My oldest daughter requests this as a special treat, because they not only have sushi, but also udon... More

I've twice now gotten take out sushi here. Both times under par. Chefs special roll in cucumber wrap and salmon roll. The chefs special sounds good but they doused it with some liquid that caused it to fall apart. Fish was good but order it with a seaweed wrap instead. Salmon roll was uninventive but ok. My major problem was... More

Our older daughter recently relocated to Bel Air, MD for her job. After spending a busy day of unloading the moving van and hauling her stuff up to the second floor, we were more than ready for dinner, and we had spotted Zen16 when we were out on a shopping trip. The restaurant has that spare, modern Japanese look. The... More
