We throughly enjoyed the food and champagne. Everything they do there is great except the price. Plan on paying 2 - 3 times as much as you usually do for sushi and getting smaller portions. I left hungry, probably won't go back...

Tried Zen during "Dine Out Vancouver" and it was a wonderful experience. The place was crowded with a line of waiting patrons but the service was attentive, exceptional and highly professional.

I used a groupon and discovered this restaurant. I liked the sushi - it was fresh, well made and well prepared. The ingredients were fresh. The choice of sushi and Japanese food is quite extensive.

Couldn't ask to have a better sushi restaurant in West Vancouver BC. Fresh seafood and great ideas on different rolls. Love that some rolls are mad with crepes rather than rice and seafood. Servers are all great. I live in the neighborhood so even take-out is an option as well. Thumbs up to an amazing sushi restaurant. Highly recommend this... More

The term “edible art” is an appropriate way of describing Zen’s menu. Inspired by traditional Japanese cuisine, the inventive menu is heavily influenced by the abundance of wonderful West Coast seafood and produce. The premium is on quality, with the best offerings from Japan being served daily. Sushi and Sashimi creations are staples, but Zen has something special for any and all diners including a selection of highly innovative tempura, teppanyaki, and delicious robata (Japanese barbecue) highlighted by chicken yakitori, garlic short ribs, and simply grilled fresh fish. Adventurous diners can choose “omakase” and have our master chef put together the day’s finest selections. Zen’s knowledgeable staff will assist you in choosing the perfect beverage to accompany your meal from an unparalleled inventory of premium sake and specialized beer and wine lists. Zen is also a perfect venue for social and business gatherings
