Located close to ngecha road, so a fair distance from the normal places one might visit in Nairobi. Definetly a warm weather place to visit. The garden setting is superb. Has two restaurants, I prefer the chinese one (try the prawn cigars -nice)

Was at the Zen garden in a recent visit to Nairobi.The place is large with nice Japanese gardens. We sat down outdoors enjoying the great Nairobi climate and the gardens. The food was good and presented well. The service was also not bad.

We found the place teeming with small children and it was decidedly noisy. The Sunday menu is rather limited and geared to children, but there was still a choice of foods.

It is only a coincidence that I live so close to this restaurant. Really. The Maki platter would make me drive across town and suffer the consequences of mad Nairobi traffic.

Lovely dinner with friends at the Zen Garden. The lettuce wraps and soups are excellent, and the service is very good.
