My family and I visited this restaurant last Sunday (bank holiday weekend). It was a late lunch, so we were the only table in the whole restaurant. This is definitely NOT a suitable restaurant for young families. The chairs are wooden benches bolted to the floor, and so are the tables. It is very uncomfortable for adults not to be... More

This place is always packed and I have no idea why. I tried eating there twice and take out once because of its convenient location. Each time the food has been terrible! Either the chicken tasted like fish or the noodles were over cooked and over fried. Not only that, they have gotten mine or my friends' order wrong each... More

The menu doesn't have a huge choice but their is enough on the menu to suit everyone with a choice of either noodles or rice dishes. The food itself is delicious with just the right amount on the plate, it's all freshly cooked and arrives piping hot at the table. The staff are polite, and while the seating is comfortable... More

The food I had was ok. Nothing to rave about. Portions - fine. Tea served in individual cups - I suppose nothing wrong with that except it cost £1.20 each cup. Just a noodle bar...

Despite the food and the service was ok, we were appalled when we realised that we were served a dish which was already served by mistake to a different customer, who returned it after quite some time. This should never happen, even more when we saw it was the decision of the manager.

Hadn't been to zen for a while so had to come back, this time had the capital ribs which were so flavoursome and sticky and a perfect starter for two, the pad thai was just as nice as expected cooked freshly to order as every dish is, the dessert was just a delight as was the service which is why...
