“Marvellous Malaysian and Chinese food.Nasi Lemak excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Their Nasi Lemak was excellent delicious. Good combination with rendang and fried chicken. Real value for money. I will also recommend their roast duck, better than any chinese restruant in London. Should try their cereal prawns, fried squid and crispy noddle. The owner was very nice and understanding, serve use some sambal balacan which was so good! Will sure to back.

“Very good and relatively low cost”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Zheng is an interesting restaurant. The food is good, including a Schezuan tofu with chicken, beef rendang, Chinese broccoli and noodles with bean sprouts. The usual wine list is supplemented by saki, which is unusual in suburban restaurants. We started with prawn dumplings from their dim sum menu, and then went on to their dinner menu. Zheng offers a range of South-East Asian cuisines, including Malaysian, Szechuan, Shanghai and Cantonese. We enjoyed eating there and it was not expensive.

“Awesome food”

The ma po tofu is delicious and very spicy. It's not too expensive either. The restaurant itself is very nice.

“Very good first meal, will be back...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Don't often go to Jericho; but was glad to stop by to try this recently (5 months ago?) opened restaurant. Was tempted by the number of positive tripadvisor reviews, and was not disappointed.

Went on a Sunday afternoon at 1.30pm; wasn't too busy with a number of tables occupied.

Being Malaysian, partner and I decided to 'test' out the Malaysian dishes. Ordered Nasi Lemak and Beef Rendang with Rice.

Nasi Lemak was really authentic. It was served with small portion of Chicken Rendang and also a piece of fried Chicken. Sambal was a little on the sweet side, but thoroughly enjoyable. All the condiments were present - boiled egg, fried anchovies, shelled roasted peanuts, cucumber.

Beef Rendang was the closest I have ever tasted to home cooking. Again, the rendang was a little on the sweet side, but it was sufficiently spicy and had a good 'kick' to it. I had it just with Plain rice, but in retrospect, would have been great with Fried Rice to go with it.

For drinks we had a hot Teh Tarik, (pulled milk tea); and a regular iced milk tea. Can't be faulted.

Definitely Malaysians in the kitchen with a passion for cooking. Spoke to the manager (owner?) who was from Malaysia.

On the whole, great first visit. Prices was mid-to-high. Expect to spend 15 per head with drink, but definitely good value and portions were generous.

Decor was basic and functional. Service was attentive and tables were clean.

Will be back again to put the other dishes to test.... (menu was quite extensive)

“Good for veggies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Good veggie selection and the meat eaters seemed happy too. Portions were large and bill was reasonable. 10% added on so don't pay an additional tip.
