This was my third visit to house of zen and it was brilliant, and such a great price for a two course lunch. The cuttlefish toast was hot a fresh and also the chicken satay starter. I got the king prawn peppered black bean sauce for my main and it was delicious along with the mellow yellow mocktail. The service... More

Beef in Teryaki mains went down well , as did Beef in black pepper . Pork belly was a bit gloopy and only small piece of sweet... More

Went to House of Zen on Thursday 13th November 2014 for a quick one course meal. We walked in and even though there were three staff right there it took a minute or two for one of the waitresses to look at me and it was me who asked for a table for two. Without a word she lifted two... More

We had a great experience here, the food was served very quickly and it was lovely. Someone said the portions were too big, i'd say they are small to medium. The service was first class, a bit pricey but worth it. Definitely would go again.

A Sunday at 5pm so not overly crowded. Good service, good food....but I don't remember reading on the menu that there was a 10% surcharge, which in our case came to £23...... So make sure you don't also leave a tip on top!!....of course, if it isn't stated on the menu then I could have refused to pay it

Came here in a group of about 8 people. We were quickly seated, but it was a bit of a squash. The service here is a bit awkward: as if they don't know how to deal with a large crowd, yet they do it all the time. The food is excellent, although the challenge is to make sure you don't... More

We were lucky to get a table at 9.30 on a busy Saturday and eve. The good lady decided to have for her main, two portions of dragontail ribs and a portion of chips. I ordered the pork belly and it was not the best of meals I have had in House of Zen. Some pieces were quite chewy and... More
