Portions are massive and the fish is really fresh. No delivery which is kind of an inconvenience. They always get the order right and seaweed salad is good too.

Hands down the best Japanese restaurant in Livingston. Their rolls are huge and their menu is impressive. The food is always fresh and offers a large variety.

Such beautiful town as Livingston deserves to have much better sushi restaurant. If you chose to dine in zen Japanese, we do not recommend to take any sashimi or sushi, they have no idea how it should be, not impressed from teriyaki dishes but it was edible. Absolutely mediocre place, try to avoid it

I attended a birthday party at Zen Japanese Cuisine. While I am not a sushi person, everyone else was--and they remarked at the beautiful sushi platters shared family style and the freshness of the food. People said that this was one of the better sushi restaurants in the area. I had the chicken teriyaki and it was very good. Drinks... More

Visited Zen with a few coworkers, and couldn't ask for better place to meet. The owner waited our table and seemed to have a very friendly relationship with one of my colleagues. (who frequents the establishment) Could not have asked for a better experience. The sushi was the best I've had and their specials are definitely something i would recommend.... More

My family orders in from here for dinner at home on saturday nights fairly regularly, and I will have a business related lunch here every few months. The service is good, the prices are reasonable, and the food is solid. It's always good to be a sushi BYOB right next to a wine store so you can pop in and... More

With Samurai sushi disappearing - we needed a new takeout place. Have found the sushi tasty and consistent. It's not cheap - but comparable to other places. Haven't eaten in the restaurant itself yet - but plan to do so.

Our two families went out to dinner together sushi was average. We asked for two separate checks. Upon paying we both gave a coupon for $10 off $50 or more or 10% off less than $50. Both families spent way over $50 when the owner brought back our receipts back we noticed she only took off 10% , should've been... More
