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

Best sushi on the north shore!!
Busy spot with a great patio.
Super fresh fish and amazing speciality rolls and appetizers.
Ask the server for the favorites. They are very well informed.

Just had a wonderful meal at Zen. Two of us ordered their 3-course meal - an unbelievable value at $25 - and the other two at our table ordered a la carte. The sushi was some of the best any of us had ever had. Very fresh and excellent quality. A la carte was pricier than 3-course meal but well worth it. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it. (the cooked food is also delicious)

Very expensive but what we ordered tasted good. The rolls we ordered were $15 each and were 5 thinly sliced pieces of rolls!! The specials were tasty but were 2 small bites for each of us.

I wouldn't go back there as there are other good sushi places in Vancouver for a fraction of the price.
