Reviews for Zen Chinese Bistro

Zen Chinese Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland and has some of the best Chinese food in Maine. The food is consistently outstanding, and always has the taste of fresh ingredients. I highly recommend the sesame chicken, the walnut shrimp, and General Tso's chicken as my personal favorites from the Chef's specialties, but everything I've ever had from Zen's has been excellent.

I’m not sure how they got all these 5 star reviews. We ordered 3 meals (Lobster, Peking Duck and LoMain) All three eaters independently came to the conclusion that is the worst Chinese food they ever tasted, actually not tasted. No flavor, not even salty what you would expect from a bad restaurant. It was kind of nothing. Lobster fried and mushy. How can you ruin lobster? We paid over $90 and ended up very disappointed. On the plus side - they don’t give cheap plastic utensils...read full review

was excited because had a wide array of food, but was extremely dissatisfied and disappointed when I began throwing it all up this morning. i can see the little bits of carrot and celery that was paired with the Dumplings which is what I ate. Will not be ordering from here again.
