Location and contact

Zest at Lime Square is a waterfront restaurant situated in Reading in Berkshire. The restaurant is decorated with plenty of glass, solid oak floors, neutral walls with warm wood tables and plush hide chairs. It has already won Reading's 'Restaurant of the Year' in 2007 and is recommended in the Michelin Guide. The menu is dynamic and diverse, offering dishes such as seared sashimi tuna, baby beetroot tart with lotus roots and caramelised onions and the 'Weeping Tiger' sirloin steak. Desserts are equally adventurous, offering anything from apple crumble with cinnamon ice cream to a 'cocktail dessert' of Bailey's, Tia Maria, Frangelico, honey, chocolate and ice cream - all blended! Three courses
