Arrived at 2pm for a late Sunday lunch with family (5 of us). Restuarant was very busy which always worries me that service will be poor but I needn't have worried as everything was just right - neither too fast nor slow, Food was excellent with generous portion sizes.

We booked quite late for a table at Zen and could only get in at 6pm on Saturday! We had thought about booking somewhere else for a bit later but all our friends who had been told us to kep our booking and we are so glad we did.

The food is incredible and even though it was earlier than we would normally choose to go out to eat, the place was full with a great atmosphere so the time really didn't matter!

Great staff and unbelievable food! Definitely eat here! you won't be disappointed. Just book early if you want a table at a particular time!

Been to zen about 10 times now, its quite a nice place but beware if there is a big group in it is very loud and you cant hear yourself think, its hard to understand what your actually getting off the menu but its always decent, not brilliant but always ok, also this a regular haunt for local celebrities we have seen a lot

Good service, fabulous food, wasn't expecting this in a small city eatery. Food exceeded all expectations.
