My husband and I decided to try Zen 16 and were disappointed even as we were walking in. He immediately stated that it was dirty. Our paper napkins and chopstick sets had soy sauce splashed on them. We quickly traded them with the ones on the table next to us. The hostess and server, one in the same, was not... More

New owner, place went from great to a major PASS! The previous owners were friendly welcoming and simply served great sushi and Asian food at a reasonable price. The new owner walks around like a Japanese prison guard, never smiles and seems to be there only for the money. The food quality has also gone down hill. New recipes for... More

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
