Zen's Chinese Food & Catering
Extremely good Chinese food... delivery time is amazingly quick. Food is fresh... I've seen them making dumplings fresh and cutting up fresh vegetables vs using frozen and pre made ones. Always enjoyable with lots of options
My family and I tried Zen's last night for the first time. We haven't had Chinese food in months because we've had trouble finding a good place and gave up. Last night was cold and we were tired of pizza and craving some good Wonton soup. We googled, found that Zen's had a 4.8 rating. Best of all, it was close to home so we tried them and so glad we did! I picked up the order and was able to see that the place was spotless, even the kitchen area. The order was packed perfectly. Each item was huge (enough for 2 days). The wonton soup was delicious and not too salty. Nothing was greasy, not even the egg rolls. I ordered chicken with baby eggplant and garlic and it was the best I have ever had. Not greasy at all and the garlic sauce was amazing! My son had chicken with pan fried noodles and it was loaded with fresh vegetables. We also had sesame chicken (all white meat) and shrimp egg foo young. I really have never had Chinese food as good as this place and we will definitely be back!Dianne D.
1st time ordering and won't be the last time!! I Highly recommend the Sesame chicken, Boneless spareribs, Sweet & sour chicken. The freshest & tastiest Chinese food I've ever had!!Shannen C.
Solid place for Takeout. Ordered from Ubereats and it came super quick, super fresh, and super hot! Sesame chicken and egg roll was awesome but the bbq spare ribs were not my favorite. Probably will be our new spot since we just moved to the neighborhood!Nick A.

Zen's is such a great Chinese place! My kids absolutely love their sesame chicken and boneless spare ribs! My wife and I like to order their seafood combination platter and the Hunan delicacy! Zen's never disappoints!Jenna F.
Zens is the #1 Chinese place around. Not once have they ever let me down. Great quality, great service too. I've had multiple meals from their menu - I have loved them all. I am often picky with pork fried dumplings too but these are just up my alley. You won't be disappointed.Mark D.
Excellent food cooked to order, always quick and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Especially Emily, she's great. Always pleased and have never been disappointed. Delivery is prompt.Dom C.

I've been going to Zen's for almost a year and haven't had a bad meal. The food is always fresh. Would definitely recommend it.Allison F.
I've been coming here on and off when i'm in the area for the past few years and I really have to say that this is my favorite chinese takeout place!
The people who work here are so nice and they put out tea and chinese noodles to have while you wait for your food.
This is a take out but they have tables to sit at so you can eat in as well. You order at the counter and they will bring it to your table. It is one step up from the other take out places that i've been to, the tables are comfortable to sit at any it's not too cold or hot like the other places who really don't want you to eat in!
I've gotten a very wide of dishes here over the years and i've never had anything that I didn't love.
Most notable for me were the scallion pancakes and the boneless ribs. The best way to eat them is to make a chinese taco with that and then dip into the sauce! Yep, you will be very happy with that one!!
Visited last night since my dad and I were in the neighborhood. We ordered to sit down and eat. Service was fast despite it being Friday night and pretty busy for both take out and sit down. Seating was good and food was good. Establishment including bathroom was very clean.
I ordered the tofu with broccoli and garlic sauce. My dad ordered shrimp with mixed vegetables. The girl took our order at the table and knew by what we ordered that we weren't eating meat so she was able to give us vegetable fried rice and veg spring rolls which we appreciated. Many Chinese food places don't accommodate the egg rolls or rice for veggie versions. The employees were friendly. It would have been a 5 but the garlic sauce in my dish tasted like a mix between teriyaki and soy (way too salty) which was disappointing. My dad inhaled his dish!
It's unfortunate that previous reviewers seemed to have poor experiences because they were looking for their old Chinese spot from 5 years ago. I don't think that's fair Zen's. Either way, great Chinese food at a great price. I took a dish home for my husband, we both got a drink and it came to around . I would visit again if I'm ever in the neighborhood!
Not big on Chinese food to begin with, so I'm very picky when I do eat it. We tried several places when we first moved here from Brooklyn and nothing could compare until Zens. The place is SUPER clean and so is the food. I would NEVER eat wonton soup from anywhere but the place where I grew up near my home in Brooklyn until we tried it here. In my opinion, this place is actually better.Stephanie G.
Have ordered from here many timesDo not stray too far from our family usuals but the food is always good and freshAlly H.
My boyfriend lives in Freeport and there isn't much great Chinese food by him. We're also very picky. So when we discovered this food place we were blown away. They even deliver !Steve L.
Seven dollar lunch on average to sit down in an attractive restaurant. I would rather keep this place a secret, it is a great value. Don't go there, I need my table! I rate this as five star, comparing to other small Chinese restaurant/takeout joints.Andrea F.
I go here often. Always easy to get a table. Service is quick and friendly. The reason I choose Zen's over others in the area is their wonton soup. Its the best I've had! It comes as part of the dinner special and they aren't cheap with it. You get 4 big wontons. I also love that their pre meal noodles are self serve so if you run out you can just walk up and get more. As far as their main dishes, they're comparable with other places in the area. Good, but not great. Though for the price, I haven't had better.
