“Best Italian Food this side of the world”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

Food, ambience, service, all above par. This boutique restaurant does it all without trying. I came here for lunch, the place was relatively busy. I didn't make any advance reservation, but it didn't seem to be necessary though. I ordered a salad and a spinach tagliatelle pasta dish with pesto. The food was amazing. The pasta was cooked al dente. The flavorful sauces that teased my palette, left me craving for more. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. The prices are quite resonable for a very good quality restaurant food. Big thumbs up for overall value and experience. If you find yourself in Trivandrum craving Italian fare, Zenzerro it is!

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I was recently in Trivandrum. I wanted to go to a good place for a light meal and my friend recommended Zenzerro as the best place for waffles in Trivandrum. As I entered the restaurant I was greeted with a warm smile and great service. I requested the owner to recommend me their best soup and he asked me to go for their Thai Tom Yum soup. As I was waiting for my soup, I just checked some reviews for Zenzerro on my laptop and I was shocked to see that a place with such great service had a bad review for thai food. By then the soup had already arrived. As I tasted it, I was able to get the aromatic smell and taste of authentic thai food. It had all the great Ingredients of thai food like Lemon Grass and Thai pungent that I had been craving for so long. Because of the great soup I decided to have a full Thai meal and Chef cum owner Anand gave me great glass noodles with fresh bean sprouts and cashew nuts: these were the best glass noodles I have ever had. Being a food lover, I think the exotic Thai food was flavourful and exquisite.The classy ambiance and friendly service paired with the delicious food totally made my day.Next time I am in Trivandrum, I will definitely visit the restaurant again and would recommend it to everyone!

“Excellent food with a touch of difference.”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I had been there when i was busy attending International Film Festival of Kerala. Since I am a hardcore fish lover, i jus wondered and asked for some Grilled fish with vegetables... they happily taken my order and served me the most delicious grilled fish i ever eaten. I really enjoyed it.
And its the place with a different atmosphere i never seen a place like Trivandrum.

“Great service, bad Thai food”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Zenzerro café is just one floor below another café/restaurant called Cherries&Berries that I had visited a day before, and I must say, both places looked modern and clean. In Zenzerro I decided to try the Thai food (Tom Yum soup and Pad Thai veg noodles) and for my fiancé I ordered pizza. I made special requests for the pizza as my fiancé had special dietary requirements. The owner of the place was such a nice person and so helpful that he prepared the pizza as I ordered.
The pizza was nice, but the Thai food was a big let-down. I was looking forward to having my favourite soup, but I must say it was a very bad attempt from the cook. The soup was quite thick, it was hotter from the black pepper than from the chillies and I could not taste lemon grass at all – the soup tasted more like a cheap soup from a Chinese fastfood. And I am sorry to say that but the noodles were not that much better either. I would not recommend this place for Thai food, but reviews are clearly complimentary for the other menu items.

“Excellent!! ”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

I am arjun from chennai. I visited trivandrum and I heard from a friend of mine about the burger at zenzerro and visited the place. The ambience was great, with good music in the background. I was also surprised to see actor Anand there, then came to know that he owns the place. Excited, I ordered for a tower burger, which my friend was raving about. The cafe was crowded and it took 20 minutes to get the burger which is quite a long time, but after eating the burger I had no regrets! It was soo juicy and full of flavour and I ordered for another one. The wait was worth it for sure!! I also had ocean blue, which is a cooler that goes very well with the burger. This place is a must visit for burger lovers!!
