When we want a treat we go to Zenxi. Yes it is more expensive but you are paying for a much better experience than the usual average to nasty meal in a typical high street Chinese restaurant. By experience I mean the service which is attentive and very professional, a unique and quality decor not seen in any other Chinese (or other types) of restaurants and a good choice of really tasty food.

We've been a few times now, on our own and with friends, and each time we have come away delighted. Some of the staff recognize us and ensure they come and say hello.
If you have not tried this restaurant then give yourself a treat and go.

My partner and I went for the set menu and was supprised at the quantity of food, maybe a tad too much but all was so delicious we tried our best to clear it up.

while on the subject of clearing up the waitors got the balance right of attending to your needs and giving you time to enjoy your evening.

The set menu involved a duck salad, a mixed starter, chicken, prawns, crab mains. All fantastic.

The venue itself is beautiful and comfortable. Its hard to knock. If i was fussy i could say its a shame the piano wasnt on auto play the day we were there.

Well worth the money

We went to Zenxi for a friend's birthday and despite being a fairly large party of around 20 people we received excellent service, were served great food and had a ball. One of the best Chinese restaurants I have been to.

Fabulous meal in a stunning restaurant. I'm not a massive fan of Chinese cuisine but this was superb and had a huge variety of dishes such as pan fried scallops, lobster, large baked garlic king prawns (amazing!) and silver cod which I will definitely try next time. They have that at Hakkasan in London and never seen it anywhere else before. The duck course was absolutely delicious.

Unfortunately had to send my mojito back which was warm, watery, and hardly any ice but they replaced it with the best daiquiri ive ever had!

Service was great and what was really nice was they took time between courses, nothing was rushed out and we were there over 3 hours. It's a beautiful restaurant spread over 2 floors and there was a pianist playing on Fri night which added to the ambience and gave it a bit of class!

There were some large parties in but also many couples but as the tables are so well spaced it all works. Will definitely go back.

Atmosphere is buzzing, and lovely whether at a table for two or with a big party. Service is faultless, everytime I have been, they have been attentive and friendly. Food is out of this world!!! Extremely good value, been to Hakkasan in London (Michelin star) and this is on a par, in some cases better! Overall an excellent experience would recommend to anyone! Especially on a Sunday evening!
