Five of us met to enjoy an annual reunion and for the sake of easiness, we ordered the set meal B for 5. It was nothing short of excellent and we were all very satisfied by the evening's close. Lovely surroundings, excellent, attentive waiting staff and great food - what more could you want? The price was a little above... More

I've been to Zen on many occasions. Each time I go the food never disappoints. Its very tasty and always served piping hot. There are always plenty of staff on hand and you never have to wait long. As Zen is quite small, please remember to reserve your table well in advance. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars... More

Arrived with no booking and no expectations at 7pm on a Saturday night to find only 2 other tables taken. The food was fine and certainly not inspirational and for the most part fairly tasteless. The satay chicken as a starter had dried out a little and the satay chicken as a main didn't seem to have had any peanuts... More

Went here with family for a meal. Was very tasty and we enjoyed the set meal B, all was presented well and staff were very attentive. Good selection of Wine and all went down a treat. Parking outside was easy and will return again as always a winner each visit!

Unimpressed by the food served on this occasion. It was bland and by far the worst dining experience had in a while. We do eat out a lot and won't be using Zen again. Sorry, guys - but with the competition so fierce out there you just aren't up to scratch.
