What a joke! – I had heard and read reviews that this would be a great place to get sushi on the west coast being that the sushi chef was a "master". When my husband and I arrived, the "master" informed us he was drunk on sake already (it was cinco de mayo) but its ok, "I can still make sushi!" it started off okay with some fresh west coast tuna, but then everything just went downhill from there. I wanted sushi that we could not get on the east coast and he proceeded to take advantage of us because we really couldn't understand his accent, with pieces of fish that were market price (herring with roe and some other whole japanese fish that had no flavor) and it wasn't that good too boot! Then an asian couple came in and he ignored us, so we never got anymore sushi. We left after paying our over $100 bill for basically 6 pieces of sushi and one 4" imported Japanese fish. We had to go to McDonalds next to our hotel to get something to eat because we were starving. I was so looking forward to having some great sushi while on the west coast but this was not the place. So disappointing!
Best Sushi and Rolls in Japan Town – Very authentic Japanese cuisine. The menu has an amazing assortment of sushi, rolls and other dishes. The fish was some of the freshest I've ever had, and their rolls are excellent. Make sure to get there early if you are going for lunch, because there will be a line out the door! It's the best Japanese restaurant in Japan town and downtown San Jose.
Best Sushi Rolls Ever – I travel a lot and I have a chance to eat at so many restaurant. Sushi Zen is really one of my favorite Sushi places, definitely the best for rolls (over 92 on the menu). Don't waste your time on traditional Nigiri or Sashimi. The rolls are outstanding and decorative. And these guys are very generous in their portions including the pieces of fish they put in their rolls. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food and friendly service. – I highly recomend Sushi Zen. The Maki rolls are amazing.... very creative. Great taste and fabulous presentation.
