Quite simply the worst Chinese I have ever had. I had the chrispy duck and the cucumber was rotten to the point where it was a solid lump of green s**t in the Tupperware. The duck was as soft as a wet fish and the source was watered down mucus.then I had the sweat and sour chicken which was just... More

Never had a bad meal from here; always tasty and well prepared. They never get the order wrong which makes a nice change these days.

I feel this takeaway has gone downhill recently, persuaded by my other half to give it another shot. The plain chow mein was tasty enough, but Duck in plum sauce was presented with sliced carrots and a huge amount of ? Pineapple pieces? - not a plum flavour in sight

Food I had this evening was absolutely awful & disgusting . There just was not any flavour what so ever . It would of been far better if I had eaten a cardboard box. I feel very angry that I spent my money at Zen on food that was not edible . It is now in the bin . I... More

The last few time I have tried this takeaway my group and I ended up with severe food poisoning. Though the food was freshly cooked within an hour of eating it the vomiting started and the diarrhoea followed very shortly with severe stomach pain. If you want to get revenge on an enemy, recommend this takeaway. You may even get... More

We very rarely have a Chinese takeaway. That's because they're usually uninspiring and unappetizing, with bright orange or glutinous, congealed sauces and unidentifiable meat. Zen is a really good find. I am so glad we tried them because finally we might be able to have Chinese more often. The food looked and tasted freshly cooked. None of the meals had... More

We have used Zen many, many times and have yet to be let down. Their fixed meal options offer a great range and the food is very well cooked and prepared. Never greasy, full of flavor and well priced too.

Prompted by the rave reviews - albeit from some months ago - we had a takeaway from Zen. On the positive side the crispy duck was excellent and if we had stopped at that, our review would have been different. Sadly we found the rest of the food bland and tasteless. This is a shame because I am sure that... More
