Kudos to Sushi-Zen! 1. Food is suburb, always fresh. 2. Sushi-Zen has been very willing to adapt to people with food allergies. We have been coming to Sushi-Zen for about 5 years. 3. Sushi-Zen also attracts our out-of-town family for frequent dinners. We have Japanese families. The environment is cozy and very authentic Japanese.

We love sushi!! From the time we first saw the sign “Coming Soon – Sushi-Zen” at the Lee Harrison shopping center, we couldn’t wait for it to open. The food is wonderful and we always get a warm welcome from the owners and staff. For the last nine years or so we have been enjoying Sushi-Zen’s innovative and healthy menu items at least several times a month. We know that we can count on Sushi-Zen to offer an appealing place to bring our family and friends for a comfortable dining out experience. The restaurant has a real neighborhood feel – we often strike up conversations with other diners sharing the sushi bar while we watch the preparation of our dinners.

We’ve been dining at Sushi-Zen for about 3-4 years. We come for the always fresh sushi and other Japanese dishes at reasonable prices. We like the local convenience plus “downtown” quality.

Ever since my wife and I moved to Arlington a few years ago, we have become regular customers at Sushi-Zen. It is by far our favorite Japanese restaurant. It’s excellent food, homey atmosphere, reasonable prices, easy parking and plentiful seating always make dining there a pleasure. The wait-staff is very friendly and well-informed—these ladies definitely add to the dining experience—and service is superb! We wholeheartedly recommend Sushi-Zen to anyone with a taste for Japanese food. Even our grandchildren like it!

As an Arlington family, we love both the Japanese food and cultural experience of Sushi-Zen. One of the nice things about the place is that it is family owned and operated. The regulars all know Shoji the chef and Rosie his wife who helps seat the diners. Hospitality and service are important elements at this great little restaurant. Montana DeBor, who is host of a local Channel 69, Arlington Kids in Art, has featured the Sushi-Zen twice on her show. The Japanese dishes are a combination of art and fine food at reasonable prices.

What sets Sushi-Zen apart from other Japanese restaurants in the local area is not only that the food is superb, fresh, beautifully presented, and the customer service is excellent, but that you are made to feel like family. For several years, Rosie Gordon has taken the initiative to utilize MBA student teams from George Washington University’s Business School. These teams have assisted Sushi-Zen in business planning, advertising, marketing, competitor analysis and other business areas of concern. We feel that Sushi-Zen is a wonderful asset to the Arlington community.

My husband and I have been traveling to Sushi-Zen from the Gaithersburg, Maryland area about once a month or two for the past 7 years because we believe that they make the best sushi we’ve ever eaten. We would eat there more often, probably once a week, if only we lived closer to this great restaurant. Not only is their sushi the best, but their other Japanese dishes are delicious and authentic. The ambience is excellent too. Every time we come to the restaurant, we feel as if we were in a little neighborhood restaurant in Japan. The best praise that a restaurant can get is to have its customers keep coming back regularly, and we intend to do just that!
