I dont like Soho square in general, looks fake. Food was just ok without savor and portions were quite small (dumplings esp.). Staff were nice.

Visited Zen last week while on holiday at the Sierra. Food was superb and the service was excellent. Its not cheap but well worth it as there is a varied choice of starters and mains. It was our 3rd visit to the restaurant in 12 months so it was great that the standards have been maintained. I think that by... More

Second the waiter who served us was extremely rude and miserable. I should really name him but I'm not going to. However.... The food was amazing!! All the other waiters... More

Been several times here. Service impeccable and food top notch. The restaurant is a credit to the savoy group. Some of the descriptions are strange on the menu but the food is consistently excellent. Would definitely recommend.

We have been visiting Sharm el Sheik for the past 11 years and visited this restaurant hoping for food to match the surroundings. Clearly, they haven't improved based on some of the last reviews, as the service was amongst the poorest we have experienced. No serving cutlery, no attentive service and seemingly no real welcome or appreciation for even visiting... More

Our third time returning to this fantastic restaurant. Fantastic food and service make this a must visit when in Sharm. Based in the lovely Soho Square and owned by the Savoy would recommend this restaurant over and over again. Prices comparably to what you will pay in a good restaurant in the UK.
