Our two families went out to dinner together sushi was average. We asked for two separate checks. Upon paying we both gave a coupon for $10 off $50 or more or 10% off less than $50. Both families spent way over $50 when the owner brought back our receipts back we noticed she only took off 10% , should've been... More

I've been here at least a dozen times since I moved to the area and the food and service are consistently good and the prices are very reasonable. Definitely a good value.

Best sushi ever! Small place and usually crowded but worth the wait. Great service and freshest sushi and other dishes available. BYOB which is also nice. People are accommodative and provide great service. You must go and experience for yourself! 😀

Came here for lunch and got the lunchbox special. Ordered the teriyaki scallop that comes with three sumai, a bowl of rice, a California roll and miso soup. It tastes okay but the teriyaki is really on the sweet side. Based on the amount of food I got and the price I paid, I am giving the value a four... More

I dined here with coworkers during a business trip and had a wonderful experience. The staff were extremely friendly and provided an ice bucket for our wine and other drinks, without us requesting it, which we greatly appreciated. They even took the time to explain the menu to us. We took their suggestions and were extremely satisfied that we did.... More

It is difficult to find the restaurant with a GPS if you put in the street address. Look for a shopping center between two wine dealers. We did not have any sushi as the other dishes are much more interesting, tasty and filling.

Went at lunchtime on a weekday. Obviously this wasn't when the wait staff wanted me to go, because they were clearly annoyed with me. Didn't get acknowledged, was showed to my table without a word spoken. Waited 10 mins for someone to take my drink and food order. I was only given a specials menu and one with lunch bento... More

I think they have the freshest and best tasting sushi around this area. I work in a large hospital in the area and mostly everyone who gets sushi, gets it here. I love anything they have with crab and eel. I'm not fond of fresh tuna, but everyone who likes tuna says it's great.

I test the sushi places by ordering Dragon roll. The best one is in Zen. Haven't found better place in nj. Great selection of specialty rolls, their must haves - Spicy New Zealand Mussel and Scallop-Hokkayaki for appetizers. Regular items on the menu (like teriyaki chicken, etc) - don't recommend it, just stick to sushi/rolls/appetizers menu Nice atmosphere, good service.... More
