I visited this cafe first time with my friends as it was highly recommended. However, it turned out to be a very disappointing experience. The lady owner was extremely rude and racist. I was at the end of the table and ordered eggs benedict. The owner rolled her eyes and asked one of my friends to translate my order in... More

A nice small restaurant/cafe serving really nice food and fabulous coffee in a clean and fresh environment. Try the steak sandwiches for lunch. Located in the now trendy old Arnotts biscuit factory at North Strathfield. Worth the travel.

Hard to beat a Zenja coffee, go out of my way to grab one on the weekend and I generally have one everyday during the week. Food is always great, good size serves and something for all requirements. They are always busy around peak times but service is always prompt. Whether with the family, solo, business or a quick coffee... More

Recently visited this cafe after being recommended by past diners. There was a broad range to choose from on the menu, all reasonably priced. Once I saw the size of the servings I was more than pleased! Staff are more than attentive which was a nice change from other cafes around the area! Would most definetly return and recommend to...

You seriously can't go wrong with zenja. Impeccable service, good value for money, enormous servings of food- to the point where I eat half and then the other half ends up being taken home for dinner or my next days work lunch and great coffee. What more could you ask for? This place is one of our favourite spots and... More

I love steak sandwiches and Zenja do a great steak sandwich. Real steak, not a patty. The service is really good, prices reasonable, free parking and an interesting part of Sydney, being inside te original Arnotts Biscuit factory. And, as a bonus, the coffee is excellent. It is a shame Zenja does not open for dinner, so you have to... More

My husband and I came here for brunch yesterday and we had such a great experience. The staff were all really friendly and accommodating, and they all honestly looked like they loved working there, even though they were busy. The food was really great too. I had the corn fritters with poached egg and bacon ($17), and my husband had... More
