My all time favorite restaurant in the city! The food is to die for! Its really hard to select the best ones as everything on the menu is better than the other but if I have to name a few then the sushis are incredible! The salads are beyond amazing and the mudcake is a MUST! Amazing ambience! Brilliant service!... More

This place was heaven. The food was amazing. There were several times that evening where I said, oh, that's what that is supposed to taste like. The freshest and highest quality ingredients made the simple and elegant presentation shine. The simplicity of the place, the graciousness of the service, and of course the food made for a memorable meal. Come... More

I stopped at The Park & this was the best of their restaurants by far. I think I even ate there 3 nights in a row! Salt & pepper mushroom trio was to die for. In general, best Chinese food I've eaten. Desserts a little disappointing. Very 'moodily lit' to the extent sometimes difficult to read menus. I took to... More

Concierge at the Grand Hotel recommended Zen. We had a great time. Very busy place with lots of buzz but inside the restaurant it was chill and you... More

Food of Zen is simply classic, almost after 3 months I visited this place, many new dishes have been incorporated, I ordered couple of those, taste was definitely very good, next time I would love to experiment those for sure.

This is a good place to have food.. Rather would say one of the best place to have Japanese food. I been there with my family & enjoyed the Japanese Tori Kare, served with piping hot steamed rice. The Staffs with the manager are very cordial & also the chefs pretty interactive as well..
