Amazing food, great service. It was super busy when we came in but we were still seated almost immediately. The party I was with order a lot of food and everything was delicious. Definitely try the mo...chi and if you’re in the mood the Fuji Apple sake was awesome. See More

One of the best Japanese restaurants in Alexandria/arlington/Fairfax. Lots of sushi choices. Their Japanese curry has too many onions, but have liked everything else I’ve eaten there. Chicken Kara ...age is great. See More

I was really disappointed coming here because it's been so long since I had authentic Japanese food. Nothing about my food tasted like my Host Mother and Japanese friends used to make it. The eel and... salmon from my sushi didn't tasted weird and the Curry Rice definitely didn't taste authentic, every scoop had too many onions and I only two small slices of potatoes and carrots and an onigiri sized portion of rice for the whole meal. Walking in was like 😳 The waitress just told us to follow her, threw the menus on a table and walked away, no introduction, not even talking to us to recommend anything, ask us if we've been there etc., she only came to get our orders and 3 other waitresses/waiters would come back and forth to our table. I was hoping to find a local spot but I'll continue to travel to my usual spot up in Silver Spring that brings back memories of my time in Japan. See More

We went downstairs for lunch yesterday and grabbed some sushi. I had the combo (2 rolls, miso soup and a small salad for $11) and it was perfect. The spicy tuna roll was one of the best I had and th...e regular tuna with avocado was just right. Glad we moved the office closer to Zento. See More

We LOVE Zento.
This is our usual date night spot. Never have we been disappointed. Yesterday we took our 4 and 5yo daughter's & they LOVED it also!! We had them split a ramen for the girls and we or...dered a few appetizers to share. Monday is 2 for $10 rolls all night.

My husband and I love it here. When we moved here from southern California it was so hard to find good sushi/Japanese dining. This is our favorite place in the area and its not overpriced. Love Zento!
