Over rated place

This place used to be a quite little cafe good for friends to meet, however has become a show off pace for a while now. Food quality is decent. Mocktails are good. The location of this place is fantastic. Right in middle of all colleges.

Situated in the campus of Amdavad-ni-Gufa, this is a great place to relax and enjoy an evening. The food quality is very good and the ambiance perfect.

Zen has been a part of living in Ahmedabad. This place keeps my sanity in check and to know that such a place exists is a great relief. Been a regular at most Zen outlets since past 3 years. Me and my better half have spent most of our evenings at this cafe....and continue to do so. A minor hiccup... More

Zen cafe has to be, by far, the best cafe in town. They've got a good bunch of people working there, who brew good coffee and make sandwiches. Lots of young people around - thats a big factor. They have the right music and lighting which totally sets the mood.

This place is really a live throbbing place for meetings and hangouts.The sandwiches, coffee and tea variants offered here are also quite upto the mark. Peaceful and calm surroundings can make any of the most tired person relax.
