Kung Pao

Your K O noodles and your Kung Pao chicken or shrimp is to die for. Did recommend to lots of friends. They already ordered from you guys and also catered. Hope you guys maintain your standards and taste. We are pretty much every other week customers.

Salt & Pepper Wings

These are literally the best wings i've ever had. They are perfectly garnished with a spice blend, scallions and sun-dried chili peppers. They give you the perfect amount of crunch and then hit you with just the right amount of juiciness once you get past the delicious batter. I feel hungry just thinking about them and would highly recommend them as an appetizer or snack to go with literally any other item on the menu. This place is unreal :) I can't wait to go back!!

Zen Wings

The zen wings are sublime with notes of pepper at the back of the throat a few seconds after they hit your mouth. They are not greasy and they are the right amount of "crisp".

General Tso

This was an oh my gawd moment. Best I’ve “ever” had. I salute General Tso! I also had the Hot and Sour soup to complete this amazing experience. Well done and we will definitely be back for seconds (thirds…….etc).

North Shore Roll

Maki and her crew are the best - best food, fresh fis, excellent service and incredibly sweet and kind. Their selection of different types of food is like no other place around here. If you haven't been - GO!!

Hot & Sour Soup

I had the H/S soup first on a rainy day right before the pandemic started closing establishments down. It was the right blend of silky, savory, hot and slightly tart. Surprising how many times people get it wrong. Not here; it is perfect and satisfying.

General Tso

For the past 8 years I have been in search for a spot that can whip up a half decent General so's chicken. If your from the east coast, you can find it anywhere, but for some reason it's non existent in San Diego. Time after time I've been more than disappointed when I ordered it until today. Zen knocked this dish out the park. The flavor was the perfect combo of spicy with a hint of sweet. The chicken was high quality not the dirty deep fried robot chicken some places serve. The fried chicken wings were made fresh to order and the noodles/dumplings were great too. Zen is my new go to!
