My friends and I visit Zen Forest a few times each winter and it never fails to please! The cuisine is prepared for the health conscious gourmet who is in the mood for a truly unique experience. Come one, come all to this oasis on Rowan. Hope to see you there. The fried rice and veggies is to die for!... More

Chef Victor produces Asian fusion fare at an affordable price. The decor is simple, clean and relaxing. The kitchen uses local produce when possible and credits the source on the menu. Unlike many Asian restaurants the menu isn't overpowering with too many choices. Highly recommend you give it a try.

I have not been here in a long time......food we had that night was good. Not super special....our server was lovely. It is a small place and they had a couple of large parties that were quite noisy. I guess you need rsvp to get a quieter table. The tastes were different and I would probably go back again and... More

Green, organic, local grown produce, fresh ingredients combined in an artful way to make your palate remember each flavor. Asian cousin with a twist. Is not always packed or the hot spot to hang out, but it is a great place to enjoy a true meal with friends and family. Needs more atmosphere but that is secondary when your entertainment... More

Was here recently for lunch with two other friends on a Monday. There were many empty tables, but we still had a bit of a wait for our food. We all got stir fry with shrimp, which comes with egg rolls and your choice of sauces. I felt the quantity was less than we had gotten in the past. Portions... More

If you enjoy a romantic spot, with great Asian food you will enjoy Zen Forrest. I have had the pleasure to dine here with groups in the back room. They had a 4 course meal including dessert. Everything was fantastic.
