My wife and daughter are vegetarians (sometime vegans). My son and I still eat meat. Zen Garden is the kind of place you can go that satisfies vegetarian/vegans but others will enjoy the food too. My favourite in Kung pao combo.

I was rushing from a conference to teaching a class in my hotel room on a rainy night - discovered this small vegetarian restaurant a half block from the hotel - great food, reasonable price, friendly staff. I would definitely go back!

I live in London, Ontario and Zen Gardens is my go-to restaurant for anything from quick take-out (call ahead and my order is ready in fifteen minutes) to dining in with friends or family (vegetarians or meat-eaters, small groups or larger groups). The space is peaceful, pleasant, and clean. The servers are all wonderful, especially Mandy and her son. They... More

We've been several times, including take out. The host and waitstaff are incredibly nice and gracious. The food is delicious, with clear marking for the presence of egg (our daughter is allergic). We will go back again and again.

I've been a customer of Zen Gardens for many years, but have recently rediscovered it after a lengthy reprieve. It's in a handy location, not far from work, so I have recently gone for takeout lunch a number of times. The hostess/server is so incredibly kind and friendly. She now knows me by name and has memorized my regular order.... More

We happened on Zen Gardens after we left another restaruant, and we were starving! As a vegetarian I find it really hard to order at chinese food restaurants, and this was SOOOO exciting! everything on the menu was vegetarian (and vegan items clearly marked). All of my old pre-veggie favourites were there in vegetarian form like Chicken Balls!!! While we... More

Great vegetarian restaurant in downtown. The food is reasonably priced and tastes good. Highly recommend it even for meat eaters as it leans towards tofus, sitans and other vegetable proteins
