Went on Saturday night and I had one of the set meals and better half picked from the starters. I had a cocktail teapot and as always like any of the cocktails here they are lip smacking super. The food was lovely as usual and if I could move in I would and adopt all the young staff. Give this... More

This place is my favourite in Belfast and I eat out all the time. The service is excellent and the food is magnificent from the juicy duck to the chicken to the stunning sole fish. It is just amazing, all of the food starters and mains. The lunch special menu is so cheap for the standard of the food. Would... More

Excellent quick service, amazing meal and lovely surroundings. I would recommend the Satay Chicken. The only negative is the price, a bit expensive!

Lunch menu is £9.50 for 2 courses i expected much smaller portions for the price but the portions were the same as i had for dinner! An asset to Belfast! The only gripe i have is if you are... More

Can't complain at all about the food. Service was quick but very much got the impression they wanted you out as soon as you'd eaten your meal. I wouldn't have been surprised if some member of staff had started to clear our table before we'd finished eating. That being said, would eat here again but I prefer their other restaurant.

Absolutely LOVE it here! Enormous cocktail menu full of delicious drinks made with fresh fruit! The food here is fantastic! Atmosphere is amazing, really fast and friendly service. My favourite place in the world! Planning another trip to Belfast (from Liverpool) just so I can come here again! :)

My wife and I dined in the House of Zen in July. I had previously dined in their sister hotel Zen which I really enjoyed so my hopes were high. The restaurant is located in St Anne's square in the Cathedral quarter. SO those of you who are travelling to Belfast for the first time, this is the area you... More
