Zenbu-The Quaint Sushi Lounge

Zenbu provides a quaint lounge atmosphere while dining on traditional sushi. Located in a meticulously designed and maintained strip mall it is both clean and aesthetically pleasing.  Four different types of seating include bar, patio, high top and lounge. Dark with smooth rock music it creates an upscale and trendy environment.  Each of the plates are provided when one is finished. The plates for couples are served to be shared. They are artistically put together and pleasing to the eye.  Yelp provides a mixed review. However, our experience was pleasant and met our expectations. The décor in the restaurant appears to be updated. Drinks were reasonably priced. Readers recommend the happy hour for the best deals.  Definitely worth a repeat visit!
