I had not been back to the Zhen for over a year as I came back I was disappointed by the quality of the food and the restaurant in general. With so many options in Polanco and even in the Presidente hotel I don't see any reason to return.

This was a pleasant surprise. They did a very nice rendition of Shanhai style dishes like dim sum and noodles, and well-prepared main courses. It's at the InterContinental, and convenient to shoppers and people staying at the other nearby hotels. I would eat here again on a return trip to this area.

I love the roasted duck the most. Besides, the restaurant gave you a romantic atmosphere where candles were set mainly. Too bad I wasn't with my partners

The veggie dumplings were excellent. One of the people on our table had allergies and they were very accommodating.

Excellent food & good service. A bit on the expensive side but worth every penny. Try the crispy rice dumplings with pepper icecream, simply delicious.
