I have visited Zen Garden on numerous occasions. It serves a range of oriental cuisine, both chinese and japanese and is (I believe) the only place serving Dim Sum in Nairobi. The food is always of an extremely high quality..

Sophisticated surroundings and beautifully presented, perfectly spiced food. Red prawn curry, tempura veg, spicy tofu. Stir fried greens all highly recommended.
