The service was good, the food delicious. The menu, for me, has too much fish and not enough veggie, however that said what I had was really lovely. This is expensive, so not a regular. The cafe is also good and does great snacks.

This is a high end local restaurant that is worth a visit not just for the kosher audience. The menu is limited but has an interesting Mediterranean/Middle East fusion. We both ordered the Yellowfin Tuna Steak, avocado puree, sushi rice & lotus root (£24). It...More

This is the first time I've eaten there for a couple of years and when I used to go it was a real treat. Today I experienced quite possibly the worst dining experience of the year. The waiters are rude, in your face, overbearing, and...More

Something like a fiver for snacks. We went for a bowl of celeriac and parsley soup and a small packet of crisps between the two of us. Tenner. Soup was fair and a decent temperature but with the slimmest morsels of bread you ever saw...More

I had a wonderful time tonight at the Zest Restaurant. If you fancy truly delicious and modern Israeli cuisine you won't find a better place in London. All dishes we tried were cooked to the perfection! What's more, it is an incredibly welcoming and relaxed...More

I was really looking forward to a meal out with our Kiwi vegetarian friends and disappointment soon replaced anticipation. Bored staff reluctantly served us with little grace, there was poor choice, bread had "run out" and no-one seemed to care whether we were there or...More

Chose Zest for a business lunch with an observant client. Seemed like a good choice but I'm afraid it wasn't great. Lunch menu is a very limited choice of 3 starters and 3 mains. Its supposed to be all Ottolenhgi but frankly it's well short...More

Airy and comfortable space with a cafe at the front and full table seating, as well as bar seating. Outside space available. Food was well prepared and flavorful.

Zest is hidden away in the JW3 centre but - if, of course, you can park - it's a good find, if a bit pricey. Food is trendy pescetarian and there are some unusual combinations which look a bit strange but generally sit well on...More
