Solid place for a quick solo bite at the bar, thanks to the solid Japanese beer selection and stand-bys like the tuna pizza and tonkotsu ramen.

Bound not to be around for long! – We've lived in Old City for 3 years now and are always up for trying the newest place in town. As sushi lovers, we were especially excited to try Zento when it opened across the street from us (as the walk to Hikaru isn't fun in this cold). While it doesn't have the flare of Haru, or the decor of Cubru Libre, we didn't want to pre-judge the place on its unimpressive appearance. So we went in with hopeful thoughts and empty stomachs and came out very disappointed. THE SUSHI WAS AWFUL!!! The sushi lacked flavor and the rolls were small, without much flavor and with meager portions of fish. I've had better sushi from SuperFresh! We will skip this venue in the future and make the longer walk to Hikaru where we know the sushi never disappoints!!!

i would wait a while – This is a small new restaurant in the heart of old city, key word being small! The service was not good at all, but maybe it will improve in time...I would suggest that you only go there for the sushi, which truly was pretty good, but for the most part, the entrees were flavorless. It is b.y.o.b., which is nice if you can get a waitress to actually open your bottle and give you glasses...Over all, at the moment i feel as though they are below average, but i'm not one to cross restaurants off my list when they are only open for a few weeks, so i would maybe go back in a few months...we'll see!
