Sadly, this restaurant closed suddenly. If you missed it- I'm really sorry. Please don't come to town and think it's still here. So sad. There is however a good new Szechuan Chinese restaurant in it's place. Try it.

Closed. No notice, no explanation, no forwarding address, no loss, no tears. Bye-Bye. Get lost. Stay so.

This is a good Asian fusion restaurant that understands their food. I have been there a couple times and enjoyed it each time. The atmosphere is cool, friendly waiters, and good food. A bit pricey, but its Northampton, everything is.

We were very excited to try Zen as the atmosphere was enticing. However the food wasn't that exciting and the flavors were flat. We won't be going back.

Zen offers a wide variety of scrumptious Asian cuisine. It is somewhat pricey, but not too bad considering the quality of food that you're getting, which is consistently very good. The atmosphere is also nice. This is a great place to pick up some take-out too! I recommend it to all Asian food lovers!

Visited at 4:00 pm for late lunch, a quiet time. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience - food choices were Blue Stew and Thai noodles with shrimp and kimchi. Served nice and hot and very flavorful. Really liked the iced tea - with rose petals - nicely "glassed" - nice touch. Initial server did not "check back" with us, although later a... More

I really like this restaurant. Great location on Main Street with big windows that let you see outside to bustling downtown Northampton. The sushi selection is very good with interesting options. Try a fire taco which is spicy tuna and scallops on a lettuce leaf with crunchy on top (lower carbs). But in addition to sushi, they have a nice... More

I was sadly disappointed by my lunch at Zen. I had the Lunch box with Miso Soup - ok; Broccoli with tofu - tasteless; Dumplings - very doughy; and an avocado roll - ok (being a vegetarian this replaced the California Roll - though I had to send the box back to have this corrected). The service was fine. Will... More
