Description: Zengo is sophisticated with Pan-Asian styles and flavors. Chef Richard Sandoval, whose accolades include Bon Appétit Restaurateur of the Year and Mexico's Toque d'Oro, artfully spins Pan-Asian ingredients into colorful,beautifully balanced dishes designed for sharing. The beverage menu features innovative, hand-muddled cocktails as well as an extensive selection of wines, sakes and tequilas. The vibrant décor fuses traditional and contemporary tastes, the perfect setting to sample Zengo's acclaimed cuisine.

Went with another couple. Great to share everything. The hot stone beef was a hit to start the meal. Only 1 of us had an entree (lamb) the other 3 had the app portions to share. Lots of food and nice size portions to share.
Atmosphere very coo.
Will be back!

My husband and I went to this restaurant for the first time on a Friday night and we will definitely return and recommend it to our friends. Enjoyed the valet service on this cold winter night--a nice touch. We were ushered right to our table by an engaging young woman. This is definitely a hallmark of this restaurant: really friendly staff. Compliments to the owner or manager for such high expectations and good training of the staff. Our waitor could describe all the savory flavors of the dishes with delight on his face and was not afraid to make recommendations, which we took. We loved the food, beautifully served and so tasty! Had to describe the fusion of Asian and Latin but it really works. Four tapas, two desserts and two drinks and we were out in time for the theater feeling well sated. The food came quickly to the table, piping hot and like art pieces.

Celebrated NYE here.
We booked it as we saw the menu (four course fixed menu with a glass of champagne to ring in New Year). Were told that the champagne was given at midnight, and not with our meal, which was misleading and unfair for those who couldn't book a late table.
Ceviche left a lot to be desired. Probably the worst we've ever had with only a few measly prawns floating around and cumin spice...We were bummed as it was this dish that eventually persuaded us to book here. Mains were tasty and helped to make up for the poor starter.
We enjoyed it but weren't overly impressed. Tables are very close together and ambiance was average.
$65 for a meal with no glass of bubbles was steep.

Zengo is an Asian Mexican fusion place. They serve a wide variety of unusual dishes. One of our favotires is the Black Cod, and another is the Samon that I don't remember the actual menu name. A nice wine list and excellent desserts. Prompt service and very nice ambiance. We will definately return.
