Zen café is within the Hussain-Doshi gufa premises, this adds to the charm of the place and makes it lively and vibrant. The creativity and grandeur of the surroundings adds the right amount of zing to the place...you see people from various backgrounds hanging out. The Gallery next to it also adss to the flavour...Must visit for creative and nature... More

Peaceful, relaxed, open air and like a hidden - woods.... I've always been going to Zen since ever I remember ! Good company is all you need....it has a calming effect on me whenever I go to zen ! On the food front, I haven't really tried much... But their iced teas, coffees and mocktails are kind of decent !... More

This is in the campus of Ahmedabad College outside the Ahmadavad ni Gufa, and is essentially a glorified college canteen with self service. We had cappuccino and chai and both were typical Indian style milk based concoctions in spite of specifying that we wanted very little milk. Milk is the middle name in this part of the country that is... More

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.

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.
