While several wanted sushi, a couple of us didn't like sushi and wanted other options. Everyone walked away happy. The salad I ate was crisp and fresh with a delicious sauce. The Yaki Ramen with vegetables and chicken was plentiful and tasty. I ended up having leftovers to bring home and enjoy later. Those who ordered sushi also seemed very happy with their meals.

The sushi was good, but it was almost impossible to hear in the upstairs seating area which was full of people talking in regulator tones. Plus, TV was on. Service was slow.

Best yaki soba I've ever had. Sushi is delish as well. Beautiful sushi rolls. Very happy we just stopped into this restaurant.

Tasty miso soup. Responsive and intuitive service. A few specials on the wall slate. Fresh sashimi.

Distracting TV showing skin care products and exercise infomericals.

Zen is my go-to Boston sushi spot. The fish is always fresh and tasty, they have all the staples you'd expect, and they have a few non-sushi selections for your weird friends who go to a sushi restaurant with you but don't like sushi. The bento lunch boxes are a great value for lunch. I usually have trouble finishing a Maki Lunch Special--the portions are great. Nothing here will wow you, but it's all a good deal and you'll be glad you came.
