Ideal for a light but sophisticated lunch

We had a couple of salads with fresh Thai flavours, and two excellent smoothies. Just what we wanted at the time.

Very nice food. Staff were friendly and the restaurant is nicely decorated. Would go again. The restaurant is part of a spa so you can make a day of it if you choose.

Only a small restaurant located next to the spa at the hotel, but if you want authentic Thai food in lovely surroundings then this is a great place to pick.

The decor, background music and atmosphere contributed to an overall calm and relaxing evening meal; there was a barely audible sense of conversations going on in the restaurant, but none that interfered with your own. The restaurant offered a good range of Thai food and, largely this was well cooked and presented, but it was not without its faults -... More

We utilised the Zen Garden restaurant for an evening meal whilst staying in Careys Manor, and for us it was a very good experience. Although associated and attached to the Spa section of the hotel its design makes it a standalone restaurant with a very nice setting, especially if you can get a window seat overlooking the garden itself.
