We came across this place online,we decided to try it out because the menu online looked great and had a lot of variety. Upon arriving we were greeted warmly and quickly given water and menus. The menu was probably half of what was listed on their website. I was a little disappointed by that, but still went ahead a choose... More

Good food, good service, good value. What more can you ask? This place has quickly become a favorite place to visit whenever I'm in town. The food is excellent, and suitable for all diets -- this is not one of those places that meat eaters will hate. A favorite dish is their "vegetarian barbeque," which is a shockingly good imitation.... More

Building exterior is very decieving, been going here for years and easily can say it's a well maintained converted house. Quaint and calming atmosphere with a surprising amount of tables but never had a problem with overcrowding or noisy patrons. Food is confusing to order for a first timer so be sure to mention it to your server if you've... More

I've been visiting Zen Garden a few times a year for well over ten years and for the most part it's always a good experience - the vegetables are fresh and crisp and the portion sizes are just right (this is not Homestead, mind you). They have easy to order boxed platters if you can't decide what you'd like from... More

I've stopped in here a few times over the years and it never disappoints. The food is great and very flavourful. It is a great option for vegetarians and meat eaters alike looking for something a little different. The owner is also very friendly - great service! Try the lunch or supper sets.

Very warm and inviting host (owner). Food was delicious- especially the pot stickers! And they have a fantastic assortment of teas.. worth a try for sure. Will be back.

It didn't look like anything special on the outside. We were 15 minutes early and the owner was busy renovating the exterior. There was also roadworks going on outside. As soon as the owner spotted us, he jumped down and led us inside - it was like walking into, and being warmly welcomed into, someone's living room. Small, quaint, inviting... More

We were not sure of what to expect from this small nook on the street. We were immediately welcomed and seated as soon as we entered. They had some wonderful vegan choices. We loved the presentation of the food, as well as (and perhaps most importantly) the taste! Very creative, scrumptious dishes - a nice break from just rice and... More

I have been living here for a couple of years and I had a business meeting at this place once. It is simply amazing!! The man who owns the restaurant served us and knew my coworker really well. He is just so cute and funny! It was my first time trying bubble tea and man... i'm hooked! I thought nothing... More
