“OMG this place is scrummy !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Just happened to walk past and dropped in for a bit of light lunch !! The restaurant is very clean, the staff are polite and helpful, the food is amazing and the portions are huge - talk about light lunch, we were in there for about two hours and could not move after we had eaten. The taste of the dishes were divine. This must be a very popular place as people had to que to get a seat. I would not say it was expensive as it was worth every penny! We are so glad we stumbled across this place and would recommend to all that like quality, tasty food.

“Insulting!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

After a big day in Delhi, we thought we'd treat ourselves to a nice-looking restaurant in Connaught Place. Unfortunately, we settled on Zen.

The chicken spring rolls and Thai red snapper were satisfactory, but probably not good enough for the menu price. My girlfriend's lamb, babycorn and broccoli dish was appalling, soaked in a tasteless sauce that had the consistency of cheap glue.

The bill was the big shocker. The already overpriced food was hit with 4 separate taxes and service charges! 500 rupees in taxes alone on a meal for two! I looked all over the menu for a disclaimer, and eventually found small print on the dessert and wine page towards the back of the menu that mentioned that prices were subject to tax. It didn't say 4 of them. And it wasn't somewhere people would see it, like, say, the front page.

I asked a waiter about the bill. He did a quick tag team with the manager. I told him I'd never seen anything like it anywhere in India. He said that I would've seen it every time I ate in a five star hotel. When I said that I didn't stay in five star hotels, he scoffed. That was the end of the conversation. His attitude was awful, and we got the impression that he didn't think we were good enough to dine there.

I rarely felt ripped off in India. This was one occasion that I really did. Average food, overpriced and rude service. Go somewhere else.

“Excellent food, priced reasonably”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

I took a friend to dinner at Zen in Connaught Place. We both enjoyed the ambience, tho sometimes it was a little loud. The food was quite good and the staff attentive, but no overly so. A nice experience.

“Nothing great!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

They don't serve the freshest of prawns. The staff is rude and don't know the menu at all. Very basic chinese fare at steep prices. OK for a change if you're bored with the regular Chicken serving joints in CP but not worth a second visit if you know your food well!
