“LOOKS LIKE THEIR STANDARDS HAVE SLIPPED”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Prompted by the rave reviews - albeit from some months ago - we had a takeaway from Zen. On the positive side the crispy duck was excellent and if we had stopped at that, our review would have been different. Sadly we found the rest of the food bland and tasteless. This is a shame because I am sure that they mean well, there was plenty of food and the guy who took the order was friendly and efficient. Lets hope that this was just a blip.

“A truly hidden Jem in Cirencester!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

This has to be one of the best takeaways in the UK. The food is reasonably priced. However the food is out of this world!!! Even if you want something that is off menu or you want something changing slightly.... it seems like no issue for this place. The Gentleman who takes the orders is always friendly and very chirpy!! If you are in the area, Zens is a must!!!!

“Clean friendly service and delicpus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2011

Without a doubt the finest Chinese takeaway I live only 5 minutes from a Chinese takeaway but I will always travel 20 miles to get from Zen instead. They have the most friendly person serving. Highly highly recommended!!!
