We order take out weekly. The food is ALWAYS great. I've had a chance to tour the kitchen and it was very clean. The dine-in restaurant does not have much atmosphere, but they can handle large groups.

Went to this spacious restaurant with family. We ordered the seafood hot and sour soup which was delicious. Also had the Szechuan dumplings which were good. We had rice cakes with pressed bean curd, duck with basil, and three pepper chicken which was spicy, but tasty. All the dishes were very good, and they have a whole page of traditional... More

A dear friend and I enjoyed a splendid lunch, yesterday. As always, the service, food and overall experience rated top notch. This restaurant and A Single Pebble are the only Chinese restaurants in the greater Burlington area that serve genuine dishes and are eager to assist is ordering. Love the place!

We went in on Mothers Sunday and the restaurant was busy ............... The food was perfect, I couldn't do better at home. Their version of Pineapple Double Wonder was done to a turn. We over ordered so there was a second meal on Monday. We had a banquet. A good time was had by all.

We went for Lunch on a Saturday. There were 20 of us. The food arrived cold and greasy. The server brought an extra dish by mistake and wanted to charge us for it! The kitchen manager was going to charge the poor server for the mistake!! He seems to be" penny wise and pound foolish".The lunch price was very reasonable... More

We had chicken & broccoli which tasted great and was quite a large portion, eggplant in garlic sauce which was absolutely delicious, and Chinese vegetables from the last page covering traditional...

We order out every week or two. The food is consistently good. We particularly like the hunan chicken and house fried rice which is loaded with seafood and meat. I had a chance to visit the kitchen once and was quite impressed with the cleanliness which you dont often find in other restaurants serving this quisine.

I am a member of a group of people who go to the Met Opera movies about 8 times a year at the theater across the street and we always eat our lunches at Zen Gardens. Why? Because it's friendly, convenient, fast, and good. There are other nearby opportunities, but the food at Zen is excellent. It comes out quickly... More
