Reviewed April 8, 2014

First, you should be aware that this restaurant is a considerable distance from downtown Oxford. We walked from the intersection of High St and St. Aldates. It took 10-15 minutes and it was worth every step. Don't let the location stop you from eating here. We are a family of five with kids ranging from 8 to 14. We all found something to love about this place and its menu. It offers a range of Asian fare, from Malaysian to Szechuan to Japanese. I loved the clay pot chicken and my wife liked the King Bao. The kids loved the sweet and sour chicken. The meal came out fast and delicious. The service was quick and attentive. The owner talked with us for twenty minutes explaining his vision for the food and for the restaurant. We left stuffed and satisfied and thoroughly enjoyed our walk back to downtown. Do not miss Zheng!

We visited here on the recommendation from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed.
Not only were the staff extremely friendly and personable but the food was out of this world. All fresh and home cooked. Our order was the chefs recommendation based out tastes.The flavours and attention to detail was exquisite. Will 100% return when next in Oxford.

My friend booked the table this evening and I have to say I was really impressed! They have not been open long but judging by how full the restaurant was tonight - their future success looks to be ensured. The service was excellent from start to finish but not obtrusive. We opted for the Chef;s Choice menu, where you tell them a brief list of what you don't like and whether you want one or two courses and they then come up with the rest! We loved it - they was such a variety of dishes, some of which I have not had before but would very much like to have again! It was nice to see some families dining there with their children. Would highly recommend.

Very friendly restaurant, clearly already very popular though only been open for a few months - with takeaway service. Our kids had soft noodles and chicken which they loved, as well as duck and pancakes, but we had beautifully spicy Malaysian chicken and aubergines with chilli and garlic - both delicious. Food tastes fresh with clear spicing, and the service is fast and attentive with fun banter. We consider ourselves lucky to have this on the doorstep; now we don't need to go to Sojo anymore!

Best to book your table!

We're always nervous about visiting brand new restaurants but when a Chinese friend recommended Zheng in Walton Street, Oxford, our inhibitions vanished. So we weren't that surprised that the food was superb, the atmosphere lively and the staff very jolly. Of course we ordered too much! The crispy duck was excellent, while our main course dishes - one prawn and one chicken - were even better. Zheng is a great plus for the area and we'll be back...often.
