Zen Buffet recently opened a new location in Monrovia! It’s on the corner of Huntington Blvd and Fifth Ave. The interior is much nicer than other Zen Buffet locations with wooden tables and dimmer lighting. Zen Buffet has a great variety of Asian and Western dishes including sushi, Mongolian bbq, fried chicken, french fries, grilled salmon, chow mein, fried rice, bbq chicken, stir-fried vegetables, steak, crab legs, oysters, dim sum, tempura, hot and sour soup, salad, and dessert. When I go to buffets, I try to limit myself to two plates. I usually just get a plate of sushi and a plate of Mongolian BBQ. The quality of the food is decent, and I would come here again.
Sushi plate- with tempura, shu mai, and tofu! The sushi was good, and I liked the variety.
Mongolian BBQ- egg noodles, shrimp, chicken, imitation crab, green onions, bean sprouts, and broccoli! You can also choose to add teriyaki or barbecue sauce, garlic, and hot sauce. The teriyaki sauce wasn’t very flavorful so I added some soy sauce.
