“Best chinese restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Having been to this restaurant many times already, we took the family, who were out on holiday, on Friday night. Once again we were not let down. The head waiter, who we call Oscar, is always courteous and polite and all the staff are brilliant with the children. Nothing is too much trouble and we were offered as much food as we wanted, which is always delicious. I have no idea what the other reviewer is talking about when he says the staff are rude and allowed them no extras, I and my family can only assume that he is from the other restaurant, out to discredit Zens. Having eaten here many times, sometimes just as a couple and other times in large parties, we have never had a problem and look forward to going back again and again.

“Rude, arrogant waiters....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We went to the Zen restaurant (9 people), and from the start were treated very badly. The food itself was very nice, but the male waiter was arrogant and insulted us every time he spoke. The restaurant is meant to be 'open menu'; you pay 20 euros for all you can eat and drink. After ordering only a starter each and one main we were told no more food. When we paid the bill, and tried to leave a tip, the waiter threw the tip back at us and called one of our group a 'cabron'. Anybody thinking of going here should avoid and spend the extra couple of euros on a taxi to Wok Campamento.

“Excellent menu with drinks included... Well recomended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is my second visit to Zen.

We visited Zen Friday night with my 2 sons and a mate.

My son lives in La Linea (works in Gib) and uses this restaurant regularly

We were brought menus, the waiter took orders for drinks, we chose the 20€ eat and drink all you like option, which turned out to be an excellent choice. Drinks - pitchers of beer (cruzcampo?) and wine. Unlimited soft drinks for kids etc..

The waiter service was very good, it was busy on a Friday evening, in fact there was a football team in. Our service was not disrupted because of this.

Food was excellent, very tasty..........sizzling prawns, I recommend these - overall, great value for money.

going back in 6 weeks on my next visit from the uk
