We went there for lunch and tried the all you can eat Chinese menu (Chinese food for non-Chinese). The taste of the food we ordered was ok, service was prompt, even though they forgot one of the dishes we ordered it came very quickly after we asked about it. The only concern we had was the calamari, we found it strangely stringy, and we pulled out some elastic band lookalikes in it and it wasn't chewable. So we raised the question and the 2 waiter/waitress assured us that it was the skin of the squid (since it's found in every single ring I guess that's possible...)
Overall, it's pretty good value for money.

We discovered this little gem as they were one of the few places open on New Year's Eve. Six of us dined very well, with drinks for less that 130 euros! The quality of the food is excellent and the service friendly. We ate there on two more occasions and sampled other dishes which were equally good. Fantastic value. Highly recommended.

Ideally placed if you are staying in the Roma Cavalieri, about 10 minutes walk (brisk) although I think there is a quicker route than we took but it may involve absailing. We ate there on new year's eve and had an excellent meal; all the prawn dishes were superb. We went back again and tried the sushi which was also very good. The people are really friendly, excellent English, and the prices are very reasonable. We thought that it was a real find however odd it might seem to eat Asian food in Italy.

Zen Garden 3 was a welcome oasis in the suburbs of Rome....it was great to find such quality in the vicinity of our hotel. Prices are very reasonable and the choice was good...plenty of thai, chinese and sushi dishes to suit all tastes.....my husband and I ate here on three separate occasions and were well pleased with the food, service, cool beers and cheery welcome...many thanks for the great meals at your restaurant...

After spending a few days in Rome we where tired of pizza and pasta. We found this restaurant close to our hotel. We found it fantastic. Good menu (with a bit of help with google translate) cheap dishes, nice interior, very helpful and friendly staff.
