Never been here before, but would definitely return. Quite due to the time we visited, but friendly greeting and service. Great noodles, fresh and hot. Would recommend a visit.

I eat here regularly and the food is well priced and the portions are very good. The service is efficient and the specials change regularly. The squid is absolutely brilliant and the soups are very hearty and filling. I never get round to ordering dessert as always too replete!

Great all-round restaurant been there on my own as well as with friends. Good straightforward menu. Great service and food portion size and as someone that likes a good meal this was more than enough to satisfy even the hungriest person. Great waiting staff, short wait times, would highly recommend this restaurant

We were very excited to go to Zen noodles for dinner, but it was a bit of a let down. The prices were fairly high and the food was second rate at best... The restaurant itself is very well laid out and had a nice atmosphere, perfect for party visits or business meetings, but not so much for the random couple or single customer who wants to have a good Chinese. My girlfriend said the staff weren't very inviting, apart from the one staff member behind the bar who actually looked happy to see us or anyone there.

Our meal consisted of the Thai spicy prawn crackers, satay chicken on skewers, chicken in spicy black bean sauce and the beef with ginger and spring onions, and overall the prawn crackers and satay chicken were surprisingly nice, the satays sauce being very tasty and the prawn crackers having a very nice spicy twist to them. The main course however, was very watery and fairly flavourless, and with the fairly steep prices, it would not be a restaurant I would recommend.

TL;DR: fairly average food you'd get in any standard China town, but at a premium price, fairly neutral waiters and a good atmosphere. Girlfriend: "Fairly eh".
