Love the Zen's variety and service. its location in Nyarutarama is also quite convenient. The food is great, although a few times there have been misses on some dishes.

We had the red curry there, which is not really comparable to real asian food, taste more like Indian food. They green papaya salad was good and the service very friendly.

The food was good, but didn’t taste like real Asian food, but still a nice place. The curry was more Indian than Thai. Very friendly service!

Zen offers a lovely, open-air setting, and I think it'd be an appropriate restaurant for date night, a business meeting, or a get-together with friends.

The service was good, though not the fastest in the world, and the food was fresh and tasty. The menu is pretty extensive, so I can't comment on all the cuisines, but the Thai food (at least the Thai red curry w/ veggies) hit the spot. And for only 5,000 francs, it's a steal (though you'll find that to be true at most restaurants in the city).

I highly recommend eating here if you're craving some kind of Asian fare (even the sushi looked good), and I'd eat here again.

Good place to relax and spend an evening with friends or to bring a business partner. Nice ambience, good food and service. Parking can be a problem
