Sushi Zen Bistro
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
OC Weekly's Description
This is sushi for the besotted-low lights, good DJs, across the street from a couple of bars. The menu is straightforward: spider rolls, tuna, California, the regular offerings of a dive catering to the masses. Where Zen excels is its happy-hour half-off specials, as its blinking marquee on its window facing Newport Boulevard reminds you 24 hours a day. Most of their rolls qualify, and all of them are top-grade fish: the tuna glistens and melts like the proverbial stick of butter, the mackerel's fishy essence lingers on the tongue, the soft-shell crab crunches.
Tips from foursquare
The Fire Crunch Roll is bombdiggity goodness!
you can't go wrong with the tuna bites!
Order the Ashai Dark & Sake it's a great value for the two.
Sit at the bar and have Ken as your sushi chef! Guaranteed an awesome experience. Steve is awesome too, love his personality. ;-)
Wasn't impressed, sushi was mediocre and the service was pretty bad.
