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

My husband and I went to the Zen Kafe after work today - 24/02/14. We had lovely vegetarian dishes. These were well presented and very tasty! However after a long, busy day of rushing here, there and everywhere we would have wished for a more relaxed and calming atmosphere. Instead, as soon as my husband had finished his meal, the... More

We visited Zen Café on 31st January 2014. The weather that night was terrible with heavy rain and wind. Zen Café is a warm relaxed place to eat, the staff are welcoming and eager to please. We started with Ribs, Satay chicken and Sesame Prawn toast followed by Sweet n Sour Chicken, Beef in black bean and Egg fried rice.... More

Another visit to Folkestone and we returned to the Zen cafe once again - under new management I understand but the staff are still the familiar faces. The food was still very good, service welcoming and efficient and still excellent value for money. We always order too much but all the starters are lovely and we order plenty to share.... More

Not the first time i have been to this restaurant, but this time was the best food i have in the area of Folkestone. The food was plenty full, hot and looked good when it arrived and the price is also great. If your looking for a great restaurant in Folkestone then this is a must try.

Because if it was we would be eating here every night! We arrived in Folkestone not sure of where we wanted to eat but so close the coast felt that maybe we should have fish - nothing appealed to us so we ended up here. It is what it says it is in that is a Cafe verging on a... More

I visit the Zen Cafe fairly regularly and alway find the service very friendly and quick. The food is always hot and fresh no matter how busy they are and very good value. The wasabi prawns are amazing. I would highly recommend a visit.
