Wow - this place is in an amazingly peaceful setting and serves up super tasty fare. There's a play area (not playground) for kids and the service is first class.

Some months ago on arriving at Zen garden we were pulled up by an Askari for parking too close to a line delineation on the parking area and asked to move. Okay, we obliged but noticed that so many other vehicles (large Land Cruisers mainly)...More
