The Zen is a lovely restaurant with a friendly atmosphere and very attentive staff. I ate there with my work colleagues who had the banquet option which looked amazing and they apparently thoroughly enjoyed. Being gluten free I ordered my own meal and was very reassured by how knowledgeable the staff were and also because they had a allergy menu... More

Rude staff but the food was passable, but after what the staff did to us we shall never return! We felt insulted and embarrassed by the way we were treated. Horrible place to eat which ruined our night.

We always look forward to visiting Zen. Generally speaking we eat there as a party of 4 or 6 friends but we have also been there as a larger party, to celebrate a Birthday, when we have used the 'private' section. The food has always been excellent, the service second to none and we have a good rapport with the... More

on Mother's Day we found ourselves struggling at the last minute to get in somewhere. You can rely on zen to accommodate you, we've been there before for special occasions as well as early diners and the service and food are rock solid reliably good. Staff are characterful and lovely, but the main focus is the ambience and the food,... More

Nice enough place but the food was only average and quite bland. It falls into the trap of serving the same generic under spiced meals more akin to a take away. There are better in the area.
