Lovely food that is freshly prepared. Expect English prices for a similar standard. We ate inside which was a good idea as the noise of a local wedding didn't get in the way. Quite a formal look to everything and therefore your smartest holiday clothes...More

With a very small child to beware of, the staff were still perfect. And the food was absolutely perfect. Do you really want some minus points? There's one fairly low step into/from the toilets which you might miss. The slides and other attractions for children...More

Enjoyed a beautiful lunch of healthy light food on the edge of a garden uniquely designed to make you feel peaceful. Large round grouping stones and beautiful floral arrangement through out dining area.

Zen restaurant is a beautiful and harmonic place. The gardens and decoration are just beautiful and modern. It is a different concept of restaurant in Nairobi. There are several options for Asian food. No doubt this is a place for real foodies!!

Apart from the food being amazing, the scenery and aesthetic is what I commend. Located on the outskirts of Nairobi, Zen Gardens provides amazing green vibes as soon as you walk in through the door. Something that we don't see a lot in Nairobi is...More

We have a large PolyPlay Kids Area at Zen everyday. We don't charge for that. On weekends, we have a bouncy castle and face painting on Sundays. We don't charge for that either.
