We've used this takeaway for years while we stay nearby for the airshow at RAF Fairford. We were concerned to hear that it was under new ownership and even more concerned at the negative reviews on here. We need not have worried though, because both the food and service were as excellent as before on all 6 nights we visited.... More

It appears that Zen have had a change of management or staff. Unfortunately, standards have slipped as a result. The taking of orders/payment is pretty much the same experience that I'd come to expect (i.e. generally organised, unless busy), but it is the actual quality of the food produced that has suffered in the main. As the previous reviewer mentioned:... More

Was our Chinese of choice for years but recent meals have fallen well below the standard of the previous owners - in particular sticky fried rice and lower standard of ingredients in main dishes. Sorry, I regret leaving a poor review but it is based on years of purchasing meals bought there and we have given the new owners 4... More

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
