We have been several times to Zen. Food is ok. However flavour needs to be more enhanced as Chinese. Perhaps it is moderated to suit plenty of guest nationalities. Fried rice should more fried. Some items are certainly overpriced.

I took my wife here whilst in Sharm, immediately you walk in the place all that the staff are interested in is what Hotel your staying at. It became obvious that if you were a Guest at the Savoy across the road you got treated like royalty, if your not the service is diabolical. The food is below average and... More

Poor waiter describing plates. Highly recommended deep fried shrimps as a starter. It Came as 2 shrimps wrapped in loads and loads of noodles soggy with frying oil, and when explained this to the waiter he said this is one of our best starters. Egg fried rice was very much over cooked. Chicken sweet and sour was ok.

Lovely food, very tasty and you can tell they use quality ingredients. The price was fairly reasonable, but they add on a 10% tax and 12% service charge at the end. Part of the Savoy Hotel, so you can't go wrong. My hand bag was even given a miniature stool so that it wasn't on the floor!

Nice Chinese restaurant - great food and nice décor - plenty of choice of starters and mains, prices are ok but there is a 15% service charge to take this in to account when you get the bill
