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

This has to be one of the best takeaways in the UK. The food is reasonably priced. However the food is out of this world!!! Even if you want something that is off menu or you want something changing slightly.... it seems like no issue for this place. The Gentleman who takes the orders is always friendly and very chirpy!!... More

Without a doubt the finest Chinese takeaway I live only 5 minutes from a Chinese takeaway but I will always travel 20 miles to get from Zen instead. They have the most friendly person serving. Highly highly recommended!!!

If you like Crispy Duck this is the place to get it. Also, the Singapore (rice) noodles are absolutely delicious too. I used to live in Cirencester and only return once or twice a year and never without a takeaway from Zen! During my recent visit early October, I had Crispy Duck and other Chinese food from a completely different... More
