“Nice food, cold restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

The food is nice and reasonable value, but the restaurant isn't pleasant on a cold day, particularly if it's windy as the wind makes mincemeat out of the doors downstairs and let a draught in.

“Bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

All the sauces provided for starters where ready made. Tasted like chemicals. Same with the pineapple sauce on PI PA Duck. Duck was overcooked / dry. That was my 2nd attempt at ZAO, I was avoiding that place after first visit few years ago, during which the food was also bad.

“Nice Food - Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We dined at this restaurant yesterday evening and it was lovely. I had the Pork Sung to start which was full of flavour and the Pad Thai for my main course which was simple but delicious. The service was particularly good and the attention to detail was excellent. We will be returning. My only suggestion is that the restaurant was a little cold so maybe that could be improved upon.

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

I was here recently with my family and had a very nice meal. The food was excellent. We went for the meal deal, which had a limited selection, and to be honest it was a little expensive for what it was. Quality was very good though.

“Great food service and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

My family and I celebrated new years eve here and its the best new years we had in a wile, the food was fantastic, very pleasant service and the owner Tony and his wife were great hosts. My 90 year old grandmother came with us and they made a special fuss of her which was especially nice. The fir all us us plus several bottles of was was very reasonable. Ther was entertainment in the form of an elvis impersonator who was great. He didnt come on until we were finished eating which was good so we could enjoy the show with a few drinks!! We will be returning here!!
