Customer’s Feedback

  • We stumbled upon Zen Ramen & Sushi when we were in the area with a hungry baby. Yelp suggested it so we went and left impressed. Here's why: 1) The ramen: It's really good and comes in a massive bowl. The shoyu ramen is creamy and the sweet corn brings out the rest of the dish. 2) The space: For NYC, it's pretty big with plenty of seats. They even have high chairs for kids. 3) The speed: They get you in and out without you feeling rushed. We'd go back for quality ramen!

  • Was craving sushi, so stopped in after work one day. Ordered salmon and tuna sushi and a couple of rolls- fresh and delicious as it should be. I started with hot tea and then had a small hot sake with some great tea ice cream to round it out- such a satisfying meal. The person next to me raves about his ramen- saying this is the one place in the city that takes him back to the ramen he had in Japan - means I need to make it back and try it. The service was quick and very nice. I can't wait until my next opportunity to enjoy a meal here - I'm bringing friends with me next time. Editing this review - they also offered complimentary water infused with lemon and spearmint leaves. I know, there many places in Manhattan that offer infused waters, but was a great surprise to come across.

  • I really liked this place! Whenever I travel, I try to find a good local ramen place. Zen is that and more. The sushi looked great, but I was really focused on the ramen. They had several different noodle types, broths and toppings. I had the spicy tonkatsu and I added two tempura shrimp. It was SO GOOD! The broth, the noodles, everything really good. The place is also super cute. Clean and open. I will definitely go back next time I'm in NYC.

  • I travelled to New York and this is a very nice Japanese restaurant in town. I personally recommend Zen Roll Ramen because the soup was very good and the pork tasted so nice. If you come for sashimi, Zen won't disappoint you. The Sashimi I ordered was fresh and tasty, especially the Salmon Sashimi. Also, the green tea ice-cream which imported from Japan was the must-taste ice-cream in this restaurant. I love Zen and will come back next time when I come to New York.

  • This was such a great find. Just got off the bus and was craving sushi. Very affordable price for Japanese, especially in NYC. Great happy hour, very attentive servers (never thirsty), amazing portions. One thing I was pretty disappointed about... was in myself for not finishing the noodles -  amazing portions I tell ya!

  • I was looking for Japanese restaurant in NYC and found Zen Ramen & Sushi. Usually it is hard to find a restaurant that sell both things. Went to the place and was seated immediately. I order the recommended Shoyun Ramen and boy, it was amazing. Little bit spicy but love it. The broth was rich and the meat thickly cut.  Beside ramen, I did order a roll of sushi. This was one of the best sushi rolls I have had. It is worth every penny.  It is worth the visit
