I tried this place twice and each time that I was here, I was not impressed by the service or the quality of food for the price. The fish is just a little bit above average, nothing noteworthy. At least it wasn't half frozen like other places I've tried. The service can be pretty slow during busy nights but that's expected. LIke sushi unlimited, I like this place because it's not a buffet and that gave me hopes of having better quality food. Average + at best.

The one time I went for dinner, I was quite surprised by how slow it was. It took about 2 hours for my table to finish our food and dessert (maybe we should have skipped the dessert, but it was my companions' first time here). It does seem like they only ever have one waiter out at a time, even for the dinner, which is a bit odd.

The service was slow. It took a long time to get our meal and when we finally did get food it did not come together. I got my food 5-10 minutes after my wife's came out. My wife felt here dish was too salty. My fish was tasty but all of the sides that came with it were nothing specially. My problem with the fish was that it had 6 or 7 large bones in it. I told the waitress about the bones and her response was "Oh, that does not usually happen". I know it was not her fault but I felt that something should have been done to address this, at least an apology would have been nice. I don't think we will be going back here anytime soon. --["Users/ScottMauger"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2011-02-19 21:27:58ChocolateFrogsComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 139: </td> <td> Line 139: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-02-19 20:27:58'' [[nbsp]] The Pork Katsu (Cutlet) is awesome here!!! --["Users/ChocolateFrogs"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2011-02-13 06:32:02ScottMeehleibmore menu SECRETS <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 41: </td> <td> Line 41: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + Additional Japanese text disguises variant noodle flavors!

My friends and I ordered 3 different rolls. I liked the flavor, but the rice was so over-cooked it was mushy. Although I do like my rice on the soft side, what we had was not appropriate for sushi rice. They seemed to use heavier seasoning as well; saba nigiri was a bit salty. The salmon skin in my deluxe crispy salmon skin roll was also very salty that it masked the flavor of the salmon on the roll. The tempura shrimp in one of our rolls was soggy (I tried it as soon as it got to our table), probably because the rice was so full of moisture. Service was nice. I would like to think they just had a bad rice day (not very excusable for a Japanese restaurant tho...), and would probably give them another chance in the future. --["Users/winddolphin"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2010-10-04 19:06:20PeteB+ # of comments <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 49: </td> <td> Line 49: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * ["Zen Toro/2008 Reviews" Reviews from 2008] ~ </td> <td> <span>+</span> * ["Zen Toro/2008 Reviews" Reviews from 2008] ~<span>&nbsp;18 comments.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2010-10-04 19:05:11PeteB+ 2008 archive <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 49: </td> <td> Line 49: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * ["Zen Toro/2008 Reviews" Reviews from 2008] ~</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 51: </td> <td> Line 52: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2008-01-26 17:15:56'' [[nbsp]] Does the light look like its off from E street?

The first time was right before closing time for lunch. So only me, my girlfriend, and maybe one or two other tables. We get our ZT Crunch Roll first. Awesomeness. We also both ordered the udon and sushi combo I believe. I get mines, and the waiter apologizes and says, "Sorry, her's is still on the way." We wait like 20 minutes and my girlfriend's dish finally comes out, when my dish is already cold and soggy. I enjoyed the food enough, however, to chalk it up to one incident and I say I'll come back.<br> - <br> - So tonight my girlfriend and I come for dinner. Crowded, as usual. We sit down and get our main dishes fast. Only problem is, it took them an hour and a half since we sat down before our ZT Crunch Roll finally came. By this time, we were already full and wondered why it took so long to get our roll.<br> - <br> - The food here is great, I'm sure a lot of people have had good experiences exclusively (and some have had a bad one here and there like myself), but ultimately, I don't think the quality of the food (which is great, by the way), is going to justify me or my girlfriend spending another $50 on dinner and not get good service. An hour and a half for a sushi roll is fucking ridiculous, and yes, I asked the waitress a couple times where our roll was and she said "it was coming."<br> - <br> - I'd rather go to Osaka or Moshi Moshi, where it seems like the staff is more coordinated. --["Users/BlackHamster"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-12 13:42:16'' [[nbsp]] The food here is geat, it is my favorite sushi restaurant. The sushi rolls are awesome, not too much rice and sauce, more sashimi. I like the presentation, the food is all very aesthetically pleasing on the plate. I went here with my wife on a Friday night and we got fine service, no complaints. I hear the women's restroom has a fancy Japanese toilet with a heated seat and duvet water spray. --["Users/DagonJones"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-29 10:55:43'' [[nbsp]] Came here a couple times. One Friday night my boyfriend and I ordered two meals and one roll. Our regular food came out pretty quickly. However, after we finished eating our meals, we still waited a half an hour for our one roll. Since it was taking so long I was eating my food slowly. The waitress look annoyed and asked twice if I was finished, and the second time we asked her where our roll was. She then looked surprised and said she would check on it. Basically I think she forgot about our roll. The food is really good, but sometimes the restaurant gets so packed the service goes downhill. --["Users/RiyoKwong"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-04-15 23:14:45'' [[nbsp]] In recently moving to Davis I was afraid I would not find a decent sushi restaurant, our standards for being gaijin are extremely high. My partner and I frequent Zen Toro about twice a week. The primary sushi chef and owner makes better rolls than his understudies. As rolls from most sushi restaurants are disgusting, we stopped ordering them until going to Zen Toro. They use high quality ingredients, perfectly combined with the right embellishments and garnishing. If you prefer nigiri, I would suggest evening dining. They have fish deliveries on Tuesdays and Fridays, plan your nigiri days around the delivery days. We regularly frequent this restaurant and the service has not been an issue for us. The level of business goes up and down, can you blame them for not wanting to pay an extra hand. I highly recommend Zen Toro. It is unlikely I will go to any other sushi restaurant in Davis (unless Kan Sha in Escondido decides to move to Davis). --["Users/unipeg39"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-14 23:10:09'' [[nbsp]] good food, but every time i've been here i feel like leaving zero tip...although i always leave 20%, something about the service here makes me feel like they dont even want tips...over all...i'd give this place a C+ only because the service is horrible, otherwise it would get a A- --["Users/foodexpert"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-16 23:04:16'' [[nbsp]] I've never noticed the "no substitutions please" request anywhere. I just ate there tonight and they very kindly gave me my citrus roll with no cream cheese. Oddly though, they made a change and covered the top of the roll with a gooey sauce instead of the lemon slices mentioned in the menu. They were very nice and corrected it. I don't eat there as often as I'd like because they are a bit pricey, but two of us ate until we were full tonight and our bill was just over $30, about $37 with tax and tip. The trick is to split things, because their rolls and dinner plates are huge. --["Users/HopeBravo"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-06-09 17:31:44'' [[nbsp]] It took us about 10 minutes just to get our name on the list. The wait after that wasn't too bad, though they almost seated someone else in my name. After we were seated, it took about another 10 minutes for the waitress to ask us what we wanted to order. It was another 20 or so minutes before the waitress came back to fill up my water. Ridiculously slow.<br> - <br> - However the food was delicious. We ordered the mixed sashimi with tempura, ZT crunch, and the Citrus Breeze rolls. The salmon and tuna sashimi were delicious, melts in your mouth. The ZT crunch was delicious, with a satisfying crunch to add to the texture - highly recommended. The Citrus Breeze was a bit strong on the lemon, but for those who like the cream cheese in their rolls, it's pretty good. Tempura was standard, nothing special. For dessert we tried their mango ice cream, which was way too strong on the mango; it would have done very well if it were mixed with vanilla ice cream.<br> - <br> - All of this came out to be about 45 bucks for dinner for two. Considering the quality of the sushi, the price isn't terrible, but such a tab calls for a better setting (it's too crowded!) and better service (I felt neglected). If the service weren't so bad, I would come here again. I would suggest sitting at the sushi bar if you ever plan on coming here. --["Users/BrandonWong"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-06-19 01:56:35'' [[nbsp]] The Zen Tofu rolls with asparagus tempura are a very yummy vegetarian option.

Though, I think the quality is kinda slipping. I always ordered the momiji or the chirashi. Momiji is suppposed to have uni sushi, but it wasn't there when I ordered it. But the waitress was helpful and gave my lovely uni sushi. They have many special toro like tuni toro, salmon toro .....Those are really good. I haven't really tried the rolls here since those rolls are Americanized. You will get better off by not visiting the restaurant at peak hours because the chief would put speed on their priority over quality like they will cut the sashami really big..I tried that once.<br> - <br> - Service is bad as many people have commented and I agree with them --["Users/KelvinCheng"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-10-21 00:58:56'' [[nbsp]] My girlfriend and I just ate here the other night.

We both loved it and plan to go again soon. --["Users/smittyhoy"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-11-20 20:00:48'' [[nbsp]] I've been here twice and both times were bad experiences. The first time I ordered teriyaki steak, and it was horrible! The meat was mostly fat and was way overcooked to the point where it was difficult to chew. The second time I went I had one of their lunch specials. These specials come with coleslaw, soup, and rice. They ran out of coleslaw and soup and still charged us for it!! The food was okay, but the service was very slow. One of the guys in our party was served ten minutes after the rest of us got our food. --["Users/MAlexa"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-11-30 19:03:21'' [[nbsp]] If I were to star in 'The Sound of Music', one of my favorite things would be Zen Toro. Or, more specifically, their 'Surf and Turf' sushi roll. It is delicious, and topped with a layer of uber tasty tempura onions.<br> - The staff is so nice and the environment is way better than most nasty Davis establishments. It is owned by the cutest couple ever. ALSO, for the quality of their food, the prices are SO LOW. In SF, you'd be paying about $10 more.

I loved the atmosphere; very cute but clean but. I ordered beef udon and the Tuna Lover's Dream roll, and found both to be very yummy and fresh. The only gripe I have is that my friends and I had to wait about 30 minutes for our orders, although it was the lunch rush... I'll come back again for the sushi. --["Users/kthrnngo"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-12-18 05:34:55'' [[nbsp]] Best sushi in Davis, no doubt. This place was a gem when my wife and I discovered it.

Even though they were preparing to close shop, they were still willing to cook a meal for us. I ordered the dinner sushi combo with teriyaki beef and a shrimp tempura roll. The beef was cooked perfectly and had a tasty sauce lathered over it. The salad was delicious and so were the noodles that it came with. I was a bit disappointed by the portion of rice and cucumber slices, as well as the sushi roll. The shrimp tempura was soggy and the sushi was falling apart. The prices are pretty high up there too, but then again I think that Japanese and Italian food are the most overpriced cuisine out there so it's not just this restaurant. Overall, Zen Toro is a nice place to come and dine with coworkers or a significant other. I would definitely be willing to come again, but most likely for lunch. --["Users/BenLee"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2010-08-26 13:38:25MooMoo28Comment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 163: </td> <td> Line 163: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-08-26 13:38:25'' [[nbsp]] I don't know why this place isn't rated higher on UCD's Best of Davis 2010. I've been going to this place for about a year now since I started using Aggie Cash (I'm not sure if this place still accepts Aggie Cash, but even if it does, I wouldn't recommend it because you'll use them up really fast outside of campus). This place is EXCELLENT! It's my favorite Japanese restaurant in Davis. My boyfriend LOVES sushi and has tried many locations in the Bay Area; he says this place is the only place in Davis (after having tried Davis Sushi Buffet, Fuji's, Sushi Nobu (Nobu Hiro), Sushi Unlimited, Osaka Sushi, and Jusco Japanese Restaurant) that is comparable in quality to the Bay Area but won't hurt your wallet as badly! Having tried all these places with him, I definitely concur with this. Normally Japanese/Sushi restaurants are super expensive, esp. if you order rolls, but dinner for the two of us (often includes 2 entrees/dinner combinations, miso soup(s), and 2 rolls) costs about $30-40, which isn't too bad considering most sushi places charge about this much on only 2 rolls and soup. Zen Toro does an amazing job with both raw food and cooked food, but I prefer the cooked food here. Their hot udon is the BEST I've had in Davis! I actually prefer Zen Toro's udon over the noodles in Dumpling House &amp; Noodle City. Some of my favorite rolls here are the ZT Crunch (a hefty, filling roll), Avo-Negihama Special (a lighter roll), Sonoma Duck (duck on top is AMAZINGLY cooked!). Their spring/summer specials right now are curry dishes, and I definitely recommend anyone try their curry with tonkatsu! It's a very big dish, however, so be prepared to be filled. Their regular portions are a decent size, leaning more towards the bigger end. Their customer service on occasion is a miss, esp. when the place is really busy like on Friday nights, but overall I've never been dissatisfied with the service.<br> + <br> + OH, and if you're interested in trying a toilet that cleans your buttocks, LADIES, give this place a try ;) --["Users/MooMoo28"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2010-08-24 15:51:25DavidGrundlerComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 161: </td> <td> Line 161: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-08-24 15:51:25'' [[nbsp]] Had the Loco Moco today with a side of Spam Musubi.

If you want to try Zen Toro without spending as much, go during lunch - you can get a variety of sushi/noodle/other stuff combinations for under 10 bucks. I've had to limit myself to only going once a week, but find that difficult - I may be addicted to the udon noodle bowls. I've only tried a couple of the specialty sushi rolls, but the ones I have tried have been interesting, delicious, and very filling. Service has always been very friendly, although not always the most attentive. Food can also take awhile, particularly when they're very busy, but I think there's only one person or maybe two at a time handling the sushi-making, which would explain the hold-up. Again, if you go during lunch during the week, it's rarely very busy and is inexpensive. --["Users/jmofro"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2009-07-06 23:51:12WilliamLewistoo spammy for my tastes. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 121: </td> <td> Line 121: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------<br> - ''2009-07-06 23:45:26'' [[nbsp]] I prefer Mikuni sushi to Zen Toro.

They had people lined up at their door waiting for their 5:30 open time which was immpressive enough. In addition, their rolls are quite reasonably priced.

They seated us at a table for four, and told us that if we needed to, we could move the table next to us over (our party ended up having seven people).

My feelings about it are kind of mixed. Firstly i would like to say the ambiance was better than other japanese restaurants in Davis, and the servers were very nice. However the service was sub standard. Firstly the dinners came out almost 15 minutes apart, and it was dinner for two. Secondly they kept on asking us if we were ready while we were still reading the menu (this is not a big deal if they ask a few times, but 4-5 is unacceptable). As for the food, the tuna sashimi was the best ive had ever (and i live in LA where theres a sushi place every block). It was super fresh and had no sinew at all (rarity for tuna in davis). The grilled white tuna was decent but slightly over salted and over cooked (medium rare should be very raw in the center when were talking about tuna). The spicy tuna roll was different, i personally did not like the chili powder and salt taste, but thats a personal preference and was happy to see them thinking outside the box on that one (and the tuna was actually spicey a rarity in davis). the tataki roll was good but the fried onions and avacado were two abundant and overshadowed the fresh fish. The worst part of the meal was the side dishes. Macaroni salad and coleslaw that was UNSERVEABLE for a classy restaurant. A side dish of mayonnaise and noodles is just growse, at a restaurant like this you expect the sides to match the food, otherwise they shouldnt be served. I would say that if it werent for the sides i would call it the best japanese in davis. In my opinion you got to ["Nobu Hiro"] for the deal, ["Moshi Moshi"] for the rolls, and this place for the quality sashimi. -["Users/MattHh"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-02-06 12:48:32'' [[nbsp]] This place is Packed!!!!

We walked in and were greeted very politely, and she stopped us halfway to the table to grab a towel and wipe it down. That was fine, it was lunchtime and it was almost crowded. We were given cups of water, but no chopsticks or napkins. My glass had lipstick stains all over it, and she replaced it nicely when I asked, but still forgot to bring us napkins/chopsticks. Our soups came, and we ended up standing up to grab them from the counter ourselves (we were seated close by). After dropping the food off, the only time we saw her again was when she dropped off the check. It would have been nice to have the cup of mostly ice be refilled with a sip of water. The food was delicious, but I think it's too pricy for the amount that you get (and what is with the maccaronni salad?) especially with the service (maybe I'm just unlucky everytime I go, but I've gotten similar service every time). --["Users/EdWins" ES]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-04-03 19:35:29'' [[nbsp]] Did not have a pleasant experience.

The menu has no separate vegetarian section, so I ask what all they have that is vegetarian. I'm told, tempura, edamame, inari, etc. So I order a ton of inari, an order of edamame, and an avocado roll that's not on the menu but that they say they will make for me. I get a drink, wait for my food, and at 9:15, the guy comes back and tells me they don't have inari. Well, that inari was 90% of my order and it's now *half an hour* later. No apology or anything, he just tells me I can order tempura instead. I know I can, thanks a lot.<br> - <br> - I tell him to just cancel everything and bring me the check. The guy comes back a few minutes later with a check for like $22. I go up to the counter, hand it back to him, and tell him I'm not paying for anything but my drink because that's all they actually managed to give me in the last half hour. So then he comes back five minutes later with a check for like $6, everything is whited out but the drink and the edamame. So now I'm getting pissed off. I sat there for half an hour and they never brought me the edamame, so I'm certainly not going to pay for it. Finally I get a check for $1.75 and smack down $2 on the table and leave. I would have asked for my f*ing quarter just on principle, but it was almost 9:30 and I still had to find dinner.<br> - <br> - I'm not into paying other people to treat me badly, so I'll stick to the other sushi places in town, such as Nobu Hiro and Moshi Moshi, and encourage all other non-masochists to do the same.<br> - --["Users/BhaskarSinha"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-07-24 03:13:00'' [[nbsp]] i don;t like zen toro's prices either, but being a vegeterian n worked in a restaurant before, i know how sad it is to serve vegeterians when the restaurant itself is not geared toward those people.

Service is decent, food is good, it's quieter, smaller, and more intimate that most other places around. Not the college bargain sushi hangout.

The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed, the food looked and tasted delicious. I had read here that the servers were inattentive, but they were fine and it seemed to me that they were simply low-key and unobtrusive.

The service was a bit slow, but not too bad considering how busy this place can get! Very fresh sashimi, a nice selection of sake and shochu as well. The proprietors were very friendly and accommodating. It was great to be greeted with a enthusiastic "irrashai!" upon entering. Oh, and love that toilet! :p --["Users/JuliePalmer"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-11-26 19:27:34'' [[nbsp]] Great food, I love eating here. I wish you guys had not pulled the macaroni salad from your dishes just because of the wiki comments. Oh well. Can't please everyone. More importantly, please offer the tempura deep fried ice cream on the regular menu. I don't even remotely enjoy it from other restaurants; it's usually greasy, difficult to eat, with little to no flavor being added from the batter. Not so with yours - it's amazing. Amaaazing. Now I know Zen Toro has great rolls, sushi, and other japanese food, and it may seem silly to focus on a single dessert item. But if you ever try it you'll understand. --["Users/rgysel"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-12-19 00:10:29'' [[nbsp]] We had a very enjoyable meal here. Portions were quite large and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We tried the spicy teriyaki beef over rice, which was a nice change over the usual teriyaki. We also had a vegetable sushi platter; some of the items we liked, and some we didn't, but it was just that some were not to our liking, not that they were prepared poorly. In fact, it was obvious that our dishes were prepared with great care. Next time, we will simply order something else! (I think we would have been better off with the "Vegetarian Delight" sushi, or picking our own sushi, rather than the mixed platter). --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-12-19 02:14:43'' [[nbsp]] this is some of the best japanese food in davis. the tempura is crunchy and light, and the sashimi is fresh (these are the things i usually judge japanese restaurants by). i'm not really into ordering big rolls, so i can't really comment much on those. they looked nice, though. service isn't always great, but i've never experienced terrible service here. for what it's worth, my old roommate and i picked zen toro for dinner for out last night in davis. --["Users/JennSuzuki"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-12-19 13:30:14'' [[nbsp]] I'm sad to hear the bad experiences some people are having. I haven't been to Zen Toro's though for almost a year so maybe things have changed since I've gone. --["Users/EmilyTung"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-12-26 20:36:45'' [[nbsp]] Its been a while since ive been here, so i figured id give it another try. Overall i have similar complaints to my last visit (too much salt). first, Id like to say that the service is much improved (although it wasn't busy). I went with one other person and we ordered the pan fried thai fish, the poke salad, the tapas roll, an extra miso sooup and an extra sunomono. The miso soup was actually the best ive ever had at a restaurant. The sunomono was artfully presented and very lightly pickled which is a nice change to the much stronger ones i usually eat. The first bite of the poke salad was wonderfull, but as i continued, i enjoyed it less and less. First complaint is that you should not put strong, bitter, raw onions in this salad; they were described as sweet onions on the menu but were anything but sweet (this actually common for sweet onions, especially when they are out of season). Carmalizing and then chilling them would have probably worked better here. The salad also needed more wakame, it was almost all tuna, which probably pleases most people, but deletes the pleasant sweetness this salad usually has (note that carmelizing the onions may have fixed this). The dish was also a little too salty but again carmelizing the onions could fix this as well. The tapas roll was tasty, the jalapenos could have been cut a little smaller or de-membraned so that the customer can control the heat better to his/her choosing, (but thats a really nit picky complaint). The pan fried fish was cooked perfectly and the flavors were quite unique. However, once again this dish was too salty. When the fish is covered in a soy sauce based sauce with capers, the fish itself should not be salted. Overall, these complaints are small, but significant enough that I don't plan on going here on a regular basis. Its still the best Japanese food in Davis, but i also think there is lots of room for improvement. --["Users/MattHh"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2009-01-12 14:57:45EdWins <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 32: </td> <td> Line 32: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Older reviews can be read under ["Zen Toro/2006 reviews"].<br> - </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 43: </td> <td> Line 41: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + * ["Zen Toro/2006 Reviews" Reviews fom 2006].<br> + * ["Zen Toro/2007 Reviews" Reviews from 2007].</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2008-12-18 06:34:55condemned2bfreeComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 146: </td> <td> Line 146: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-12-18 05:34:55'' [[nbsp]] Best sushi in Davis, no doubt.

The food was delicious, but I think it's too pricy for the amount that you get (and what is with the maccaronni salad?) especially with the service (maybe I'm just unlucky everytime I go, but I've gotten similar service every time). --["<span>Users/</span>EdWins" ES] </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2008-07-25 20:25:46KelvinChengComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 132: </td> <td> Line 132: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-07-25 20:25:46'' [[nbsp]] Of my experience, it's the best sushi restaurant in Sacramento area. Though, I think the quality is kinda slipping. I always ordered the momiji or the chirashi. Momiji is suppposed to have uni sushi, but it wasn't there when I ordered it. But the waitress was helpful and gave my lovely uni sushi. They have many special toro like tuni toro, salmon toro .....Those are really good. I haven't really tried the rolls here since those rolls are Americanized. You will get better off by not visiting the restaurant at peak hours because the chief would put speed on their priority over quality like they will cut the sashami really big..I tried that once.<br> + <br> + Service is bad as many people have commented and I agree with them --["Users/KelvinCheng"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zen Torohttp://daviswiki.org/Zen_Toro2008-07-20 01:18:08cnk.midoriComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zen Toro<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 130: </td> <td> Line 130: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-07-20 01:18:08'' [[nbsp]] Best quality sushi I've had so far! --["Users/cnk.midori"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
