Loyal customer – Such great food , we have been going there for about 10 years. Give them a try if you like Japanese food, you wont be disappointed.
good food – We went here looking for something fried but ended up getting chicken katsu curry. They were supposed to have a ramen they were famous for according to some advertisement but it was no frills. all the other food was good.
Suprising! – I was invited by a friend to New Zen for a premium sake tasting. Primarily I went to go see a good friend of mine. As far as outward appearance, I was not expecting much given that this place is nestled in a eighties looking plaza. But what a surprise!
Charming – New Zen was charmingly decorated. High ceilings with the sushi chef taking up a good chunk of the corner, like a stage. The menu was extensive and they even offer a menu in "manga"! The sushi offerings were creative and I have a feeling that the Japanese food there is more authentic then most places. The agedeshi tofu and the calamari was delicious. The sushi was fresh and well made.
Good food – Great ,friendly service. its a pretty good hidden gem.
Great Service – They offer premium sake tastings, I would suggest checking it out. The Japanese sake and beer distributor comes by and offers generous samples to patrons in hopes to sway the restaurant to place a large order.
I feel like I am home in Japan – Every time I step in to this restaurant, smell soooo good, just like I'm home in Japan. Their Daily Lunch Special is variety of food with this little "So-men" noodle soup is delicious, and price is $11.00 so cheap for this combination. You must try this!
Pros: Monday is now Open! started 6/1/09.
Good Sushi But Watch The Prices! – I ordered the nigiri sushi whose the prices were in-line with many other sushi restaurants in the Seattle area (and I love sushi, so I go to many). And the sushi was very good. Small amount of warm rice, nice cut of very fresh fish - I really enjoyed it. Until I got the bill. The scallop nigiri sushi ($4.50 on the menu) was charged at $7.50 because I asked for it "creamy" (chopped with a bit of mayo & spicy sauce). I ask for my scallop nigiri sushi this way in every sushi restaurant and it's normally the same price, although I had one restaurant tack on .50 cents. When I inquired, I was told that all ingredients are carefully measured and charged according to weight. So because the same amount of scallop was used for my nigiri sushi as would be used for the chopped scallop roll, I was charged the roll price. Which is their right I guess, but I wish they would have mentioned it to me first. Although I would rate the sushi average +, I won't go back because their prices are just too high (much higher than places like Umi in Belltown!).
I remember you clearly. You sit down at Sushi Bar yourself, and order only 2 different kind of Nigiri Sushi. You are very enjoying our sushi, until check came. You asked price of Creamy Scallop Nigiri " It is too high price compare the place I eat at Edokko in Kent. They are cheaper than you". Regular Nigiri Scallop use 1 Scallop. Creamy use 2 scallop with Tobiko that I explain to you. So, $4.50 for 1, I should charge you $9.00 for 2 then. It made you more sense?
Do you have any experience to calculate of cost of good?
After this, you still sit down and wrote complain next half hour on the credit card reciept & this. Your attetude is we are less than restaurant you often go in Kent, Seattle. Both restaurant you mention was not own by Japanese. We have pride what we serve Japanes foods by Japanese people. I belive we know what we doing. Thank you.
Best sushi, Best Japanese Food – Very good food, Very good service. Upgraded inside restaurant is very Japanese. I highly recommend to see the new look.
