My parents had enjoyed a meal in the restaurant, so we ordered a takeaway for a family meal and were disappointed. The quality was apparently not as high as in the restaurant and I personally didn't enjoy the food. We love Thai, so ordered a Phad Thai. It was a strange pink colour, not sure why, and didn't come close... More

We ate here last weekend after Google maps told us this was the closest thai to where we were...we weren't disappointed! The menu advises that if you have dietary requirements then they will adapt their dishes and the menu even mentions veganism (a rarity in a lot of places!) so, being a vegan I gave this a whirl and they...

We ordered from zen kafe having been told there was a big improvement in the food, unfortunately we were very disappointed. The saving grace was the wasabi prawns which were enjoyed. The sweet and sour chicken was so sour that i couldn't eat it, there was no balance to it. There was hardly any sauce in the dishes about 2... More

We found this place in the fairly desolate town centre on a Sunday night. It was a real treat. The food is Asian in that there is a bit of everything from Thai to Chinese to Japanese. We chose a range of fish and vegetable dishes that were all freshly and perfectly cooked. Staff are very friendly and helpful so... More

Very good experience here, lots of fab tasty dishes to choose from. Has to be said the chicken satay was absolutely scrumptious!!! Really super friendly staff and helpful if you're not quite sure what each dish involves!!

We've all been to Chinese restaurants that are predictable and mediocre. Zen Kafe goes the extra mile; everything's well cooked and well presented from an imaginative menu which also draws on Thai and Japanese cuisine. The best Asian food I've had in quite a while, well worth a visit.

We have been here a number of times and also used the takeaway and delivery service. Quite simply the best Asian/Oriental food in Folkestone! Also by blending the various delicaces on offer, you can create your own unique menu. The starters are great and better value than tapas.

Visited the Zen Kafe for the first time last Friday, so glad I did. The food was.all freshly cooked and very tasty. The staff were all welcoming and friendly, I will be visiting again soon. Just a couple of things I would change, food not served on hot plates and the restaurant lacked atmosphere ( we did get there early,... More

The food is very good, tasty and prompt service. The atmosphere could do with a little work and it's very over priced however the menu does give a huge choice
