Zen 5 Sushi Restaurant Review

: This Pacific Beach sushi spot is known for its rolls and reggae, and locals gravitate here for the fresh fish, fine saké and fun. Zen 5 has a clean, modern look and nice touches with its ambient lighting, woodworking, black booths and colorful lanterns. The expansive roll menu stands out with more than 40 choices: try the Kamikaze crunchy roll with albacore, shrimp tempura and avocado or the Hawaiian roll with tuna, salmon, avocado and mango. Beyond quality sashimi and sushi crafted by lively chefs, there’s also gyoza, oysters, edamame, udon soup, tempura, teppanyaki, bento boxes and more.
