The Crab Rangoon’s from the order were missing. If it’s possible to have someone get back to us that would be great. So I can get a refund for that particular item.

Although the food was good, the chef and host were not wearing masks/ face coverings. Will not be purchasing from again due to the risk of COVID-19. Really disappointing as I love this spot!

2 hours for delivery and cold. When I called 3o mins before it arrived they blamed bad weather (It's raining and 50 degrees) and traffic(There is very little in the middle of a pandemic) i'd hate to see how long and how cold it could get in normal times. Quality had gone down a bit since Covid started, but i let that slide. Done ordering from here because it's going real downhill real fast. For $60 i should have a pretty okay meal.

Gluten free Asian food is hard to find...my daughter was so excited to be able to eat "fried" orange chicken!

Awesome and tasty food! Good service! And for anyone who is celiac, it’s a pretty safe place to eat! My partner has severe celiac and he can eat this just fine, everything is labeled!

I ordered Kung Pao chicken with mild spice. I got Chicken with Vegetables instead. Surprise! It was decent but lacked seasoning and was covered with peanuts. May not return.

One star is probably aggregious but I waited almost an hour and they gave me white instead of brown rice, can't eat white rice due to blood sugar issues. I only had 3 items man and like literally a two minute drive from front door. C'mon guys. Probably just hangry but common.

We always enjoy Zen Chinese Bistro. First time having delivery. Same great food; nice and hot. Particularly enjoyed the Szechuan String Beans (not that spicy).

Best Chinese in Portland. So close to the old Hu Shang, without being Hu Shang. Bit on the expensive side, but treat yourself. We do once a month! Delivered quick and HOT!

The food was wonderful, but the driver went to Portland Stillman St first and then came here. So it was cold. I know mistakes happen.

I used to love Zen's food. But lately it has been disappointing. The tofu (Szechuan Bean curd) dish we got with this order was tasteless.

Thrilled to have such a large variety of gluten free Chinese food options. We ordered the fried rice with chicken. Tasty and plentiful. Will be our go-to restaurant when we visit So. Maine.
