This is my favorite restaurant on the Strip in Palm Springs because it is consisently good. We dine there often when in Palm Springs and have never, ever had an experience other than first rate. The staff are very friendly and offer prompt attention as required by diners. The chef often checks on diners later in the evening. The menu is comprehensive, the food is great and the wine, like the food, is good value for money.

This was not the most memorable meal we have had. I had a cucumber style cocktail to start with which was the most disgusting one I have ever had. It looked awful and tasted even worse - to give credit to the restaurant I wasn't charged for it. The chicken schnitzel with fingerling potatoes and broccoli was good but the salmon was rather overcooked and accompanied by all sorts of mixed vegetables which I couldn't identify and certainly didn't go with the salmon. Not worth a return visit.

We decided to eat lunch at Zin today as the menu looked great. It was! I had mussels in coconut milk with lemon grass but also considered crab stack with avocado. Others has great chicken and avocado sandwich with a wheat sesame bread. Very good. Will go again

We decided to stop at Zin for lunch while walking the strip on Saturday. The service was good and the food very good. "Endless champagne" for $5 with a meal is a good deal. The Nicoise salad was perfect and the 2 courses for $15.99 very tasty. Perfect lunch, watching people go by in sunny Palm Springs, steps from Marilyn Monroe...

I've dined at Zin at least 20 times and never had anything but a perfect experience. I celebrated an anniversary there and got VIP treatment. Highly recommend.
