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

Had dinner with two others on a Friday night. Attentive service, good explanation of extensive menu with many more healthy choices. Food was served piping hot, excellent Oolong tea. 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

Our family has a tradition of getting takeout from zen gardens once each summer. We are always very pleased with the food and service. They make amazing lo-mein and chow-mein. The mo-sho chicken is great also! We have also eaten at the restaurant which is nice. It is decorated very nicely, and seems quite traditional.

We had high hopes for this restaurant since it was recommended to us. However, we found that the food was disappointing. The duck in plum sauce missed the mark. The sauce was bland and had no flavor at all. The shrimp in garlic sauce was a bit better but still not up to par. Our family enjoyed some of the... More

The wife and I had lunch at Zen yesterday and it was particularly good. Crispy pork done to perfection and pan fried noodles with chicken were both excellent. We sometimes drive to Montreal for Chinese Food and forget we have the best right down the road.

My wife and I have been going to Zen Gardens about 3-4 times a year for the last 4 years. Every time we go we have a wonderful experience. This place is just spectacular. This place is a NOT a fast food type of restaurant either. Let me start off by saying that this particular building as changed ownerships many... More
