    Always wanted to try a korean bbq and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious. We loved the beef ribs especially that we had to order another serve of them. The staff were very obliging when asked for more condiments and salad to go with the beef. Extremely happy and will definitely be back.

    Hi visited Zen Charcoal BBQ yesterday night. Not so many people at that time but I like the restaurant. The seat is comfortable. The BiBimBap is amazing with the brown rice. The rice pancake was quite thin but I love its taste. Last but not least, the BBQ eye fillet beef on Charcoal was awesome.

    Went here for date night and we both enjoyed ourselves as the service and food were both great. My only "negative" comment would be that the whole fun of Korean BBQ is that you get to cook everything yourselves, which we didn't get to do..not sure if you're supposed to ask beforehand or if it's a safety thing with the restaurant. Other than that everything was great!

    My partner and I have been to Zen many times, this time around we were really happy with the value/food and service. The deep fried Korean Chicken has always been one of my faves! It's nice to see that the portion sizes have increased! Not to mention how fresh the salmon and tuna sashimi was - very happy! Can never go wrong with the KBBQ at Zen! Loved it!
