Always delicious

food always fresh and delicious- love the way it's served as soon as cooked- always tastes amazing- only down point is the seating is quite uncomfortable and doesn't really create a cosy atmosphere but food makes up for it!

We had a pre theatre supper here last night. The staff a friendly and polite and the food was great. We explained that we didn't have much time and our food arrived within five minutes of ordering. We all liked the relaxed seating plan with long benches and there was a good atmosphere. Good for a group of friends

We came across Zen slightly by accident and ended up very glad that we did. A mix of Thai and Japanese food and drinks, together with the noodles of course, proved to be very tasty, everything beautifully cooked with the freshest high quality ingredients and great value. The place was buzzy and reasonably full. The staff were lovely. Good stuff... More

We like to visit zen when we come home as it's an old favourite. However every time we go something just isn't the same. The main courses have quite clearly declined in size which is a huge shame, I felt like we were being watched the entire time to see when we were finished. If it's not busy then find... More

Seven of us visited last Friday night (3rd July) for our work colleagues leaving do. It was busy but not uncomfortably so. The staff were friendly, attentive and not intrusive. We ordered our mains and within 15 minutes the food was on the table. Very impressive given how busy it was. I had the Thai Green curry which was very... More

I chose to go here with my friends for my 50th Birthday meal. As always I was not disappointed. This restaurant is next level Chinese food. Service is excellent, food is always great & portion sizes are ample. It is hidden away a bit if you don't know Bury, but I would say it's one of the best restaurants by... More

Had a meal here last Friday night, the food was excellent quality and a good sized portion too. We were celebrating a relatives 18th and the staff allowed us to bring in a cake, they supplied us with crockery and cutlery too, thanks. This would of been a 5 star review but for the broken air conditioning, this was a... More

Zen noodle bar offers fast efficient service and a reasonable price. Really like the food too. It probably needs freshening up as it been doing the same thing for a few years now but 2 of us ate 2 courses for £52 incl £20 on Sake. Recommend

Two people who live in Asia went to an Asian noodle bar in Suffolk and were pleasantly surprised. The ambience was good, the service friendly and attentive and the food tasted authentic. We had the Singapore noodles and the Beef in Oyster Sauce with Ho Fan noodles. The Singapore noodles looked and tasted authentic, but lacked a little bite for... More
