Always love it.

Building exterior is very decieving, been going here for years and easily can say it's a well maintained converted house. Quaint and calming atmosphere with a surprising amount of tables but never had a problem with overcrowding or noisy patrons. Food is confusing to order for a first timer so be... read more

I've been visiting Zen Garden a few times a year for well over ten years and for the most part it's always a good experience - the vegetables are fresh and crisp and the portion sizes are just right (this is not Homestead, mind you). They have easy to order boxed platters if you can't decide what you'd like from... More

I've stopped in here a few times over the years and it never disappoints. The food is great and very flavourful. It is a great option for vegetarians and meat eaters alike looking for something a little different. The owner is also very friendly - great service! Try the lunch or supper sets.

Very warm and inviting host (owner). Food was delicious- especially the pot stickers! And they have a fantastic assortment of teas.. worth a try for sure. Will be back.

It didn't look like anything special on the outside. We were 15 minutes early and the owner was busy renovating the exterior. There was also roadworks going on outside. As soon as the owner spotted us, he jumped down and led us inside - it was like walking into, and being warmly welcomed into, someone's living room. Small, quaint, inviting... More

We were not sure of what to expect from this small nook on the street. We were immediately welcomed and seated as soon as we entered. They had some wonderful vegan choices. We loved the presentation of the food, as well as (and perhaps most importantly) the taste! Very creative, scrumptious dishes - a nice break from just rice and... More

I've been going to Zen Garden for years and it never disappoints. The atmosphere is really calm and there's a great tea selection (you can also buy loose teas here). My favourites on the menu are the steamed bun, dumplings, protein nuggets, and spring rolls. They also have good hot and sour soup and a couple of vegetarian sushi selections... More
