“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

It is certainly the hidden Gem of Bury St Edmunds, situated at West Suffolk College ,it is staffed by students training towards their qualifications. The professionalism of services and excellent standard of food is always of a very high standard. They now provide a take away services and offer 2 for 1 on Monday. Zests can also be hired for private functions, and the morning bake is very popular..It is great value for money, the buffet has wonderful choices of food for you to try.
It has a loyalty scheme which has proven very popular with staff and loyal customers.

“Excellent - great food, great prices,”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

I love Zest - I have been for their set menu in the week and their buffet on a Friday. All worth the money! The food is always fresh, a bit quirky and delicious! Service can be a bit slower than a "normal restaurant", allow a bit more time than you usually would but these are all students and they are all very polite and welcoming!
The price is excellent - three courses and tea and coffee for under £10 for set menu, Buffets on Fridays for a fiver!
I went this week with work colleagues and we all had a wonderful time!
They cater for children also - I took my almost two year old on a Friday and she had a wonderful time trying all the food from the buffet!
I could not recommend this restaurant higher! Try it for yourselves!

“One Of My Favourite Restaurant”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

Zest is part of West Suffolk College and train young men and women to become part of the hospitality industry. I have eaten in the restaurant for the last five years and have found the food to be of a very high standard., as good as the very best in the area.
The young staff under training will restore your faith in the younger generation
The cuisine is varied, they are capable of producing high quality food from across Europe.
You will be surprised at the price, you wont eat better or for such a reasonable price.
