Honestly, I think they have a wide menu to choose different dishes of Japanese "cuisine".Out of typical" Japanese food. A real and well elaborated cuisine. The atmosphere was really nice. Quiet at that time. Nice to go in a group or just couples.

Sitting out on the quiet terrasse out back, enjoying delicious fresh sushi at very reasonable prices (thank you, West Coast) while the kids dove into their very generous kids' menu bento box. Very friendly service. We'll be back next visit!

This is our go-to restaurant for sushi in West Vancouver. The quality is always high and the service is always excellent. Christine is a wonderful manager and she does such a great job managing this restaurant. Try the Popcorn Shrimp!

Description
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
