Nice Ambiance ..Good Food.

Have heard about Zen from quite a few friends and finally got the chance to dine in this restaurant last weekend. The ambiance is great with proper attention been given to everything. We ordered chicken balls soup, chicken wings and prawn chilli. All the items were good but prawn chilli was just awesome. Service is nice and quick and staff is well behaved. Sure enough to visit this place many more times.....

Best chinese food in delhi

I've been going to Zen since I was a child. They keep updating their menu and adding new and delicious dishes. Their sukum wonton soup and curry laksa soup are yumm. For starters I always have the prawn pepper salt and vegetarian skewers. The black bean chicken, chicken five spice, Thai chili prawns, and chinese greens are all very good. They also have very nice noodles like fuekchu noodles and zha jiang noodles. Dessert always has to be date pancakes or darsun which are both to die for! A must try restaurant in the inner circle of connaught place!!

Best Place

This is place and gives me a heritage feeling as since my child hood i am seeing it ..Probably one of the oldest place is CP serving authentic Chinese and Thai food and hub for Foreigners too..Been to this place so many times but never reviwed but after seeing reviews i thought to wright one too which will be a kind of formalities for a place like ZEN.

They have Great service and tasty thai curry. Loved the atmosphere and a great stop off point when shopping in CP.

A must visit and must try Thai Curry,,

buon ristorante con varietà di menu, giovanile

A central location in front of wing Metro to Connaught Place, this restaurant offers Indian food, Chinese and Japanese. The decor is nice, modern, in a spacious and with a high ceiling. The quality is medium to high, the portions were generous. Good cleaning. It also offers a coffee ... espresso ... ie, a normal black coffee in small size and .. steamed past (but good!). Although we've come on a Saturday, we found a place right away, maybe it was a little 'early, before 20 o'clock. Waiting for the food, we do a horoscope Chinese culture, well illustrated on placemats, along with the compatibility of the couple., The food is really nice and aauthentic Chinese and Thai..A must try here is Lamb..

Chinese Items at its best.

Zen is probably the most well known restaurant in CP. It has existed forever and has a seriously good word of mouth reputation among Delhites. It is a fab place to just hang out. The crowd is a mix of executives and tourists. The food surprises the first timer here: wide menu, everything tastes brilliant and the prices are great. Must visit this outstanding place.

Lovely place..

We chose this place based on its reviews and we were happy that we came here. Zen is a lovely place, simple but elegantly decorated, and the service was attentive and the prices were reasonable. We ordered Veg Sizzler, Tofu claypot, chinese greens with some steamed rice. The food was prepared with simplicity to highlight the flavor. We would love to go back to try more of the dishes.

its a class

The place did not seem noisy at all. You can quietly enjoy your food and not a single word would bother you. The menu is very rich, seriously. It has got a great variety of dishes from Japanese to Chinese to Italian and what not. The menu surely awed me. It took a lot of time to decide our order. We ordered Chicken Wings for starters and Zen Special Chicken and Fried Rice for the main course. Magnanimous amount they serve you. More than enough for two people. Taste and preparation were really great.

You're in for an oriental RIP-OFF

Not being from Delhi, my companion and I entered Zen restaurant out of instinct, with full faith in the merit that a restaurant at CP Inner Circle must withhold.
Not knowing that we were in for the most indifferent service we've ever been given and food that would wipe out any trace of the butterflies in our stomach.
It began with an unclean fork (queer at a place like this i thought, but still fully understandable). And continued with the waiter asking us to order thrice in five minutes. It was a week-night, the place was less than 50% full and i couldn't fathom what the rush was about.
Menus now firmly in hand, we upped our determination and started asking staff for item descriptions and suggestions. Only to get a "chicken dish lo" .. and a "badhiya hai". A far cry from the process of the joy of fine dining.
The lamb starters came, seeming like it had been microwaved for 20 seconds.. the batter slightly warm, the meat cold and chewy. All rolling about in a very strong confused flavour. Now i've had sesame lamb strips many times before, but this time, a little serving was a little too much :-/
The 'burnt onion and garlic rice' smelled of neither and tasted like, well, just rice. I would say that the flavour came off too weak.. but then that would imply that it existed.
And the Zen Chicken (a flagship gravy dish i'm assuming) was so ordinary, it reminded me of this Rs. 60 combo i once had at Kamala Nagar.
Our mocktails tasted the same (they weren't supposed to).
We had to prompt them give us side-plates halfway through the meal.
And the only time anyone smiled was when the American on the other table said his punchline.
I won't say i'm very surprised after last night's meal. It seems logical that Zen has turned into an imperial monopolist dragon sitting fat on its Central Delhi throne, that ceased to care for its people ages ago.
All i'm saying is, when you're paying Rs. 750 per person, these things really get your blood to a boil. Don't feed the dragon and it'll run out of fire. Nobody gets burned.

Great Fish Dish!

My husband and I recently visited Zen for an evening meal. Yes, the menu looked expensive and we were tempted to leave, however it was so hot outside and nice and cool inside, we decided to share 2 choices and drink their filtered water. It was an airy place, and everything spotlessly clean - interesting decor.
I wanted fish with almonds and cashew nuts plus a ginger vegetable mixture but the table attendant said both these dishes had a lot of sauce and since neither of us wanted rice he suggested a drier fish dish plus the broccoli and beans/peas veg - both without sauces since we didn't want any rice. I forget the exact title of the fish dish we had (should have written it down at the time) - but it was superb and so were the veggies.
In fact, this was one of the best meals I've eaten in a long time! Having just returned from Oz and NZ and eating very nicely there too, I'm rating this meal ahead of any I ate there! As for the price - it worked out at around 300rupees per head, including the tax and tip. Not as expensive as first anticipated, very filling and superb cooking.

Good food at a great address!

And when I say 'good', i mean just that. Good! Not average..not great!

My colleague had told me a couple of months back that Zen is a very expensive restaurant with excellent chinese food! So, I decided to try out the place to celebrate my wife's pay hike :p

sigh! My colleague was definitely right on the cost front. I wish he was correct on the food part too!

The ambience was good, although the tables were placed way too closely for my comfort. The waiters were not all that courteous ... politeness is something which I have begun to expect out of top restaurant waiters. The waiters in Zen bang the plates down on your table with an audible sound..once is a mistake ..again and again can only be an unattractive habit..or worse still, a bad attitude!

Coming to the food..we are vegetarians and tried the lemon coriander soup and vegetable manchurian for starters. We ordered egg fried rice with zen special vegetables for the main course.

The food comes in good portions and is presented well in pleasing china. But I am afraid I have to say I have eaten better chinese food. I have been to Mainland china and Bamboo shoots in Bangalore which serve excellent chinese food. Zen does a decent fare but not something that I would look forward to going back to again and again.


To cap it all, the waiter serving us actually asked for a tip explicitly. After charging 10% service charge!

You may wonder why I gave a rating of 'average' after saying that the food is good. Well, bad service took some points away. Also, when we were given our table, there were a few crumbs of food left lying there by the previous guests which the not so adept waiters missed to clean out.

For those who are planning to go eat at this restaurant, do go by all means! the restaurant is recommended. But dont go there with too many expectations.

Good food/bad service

I went this Saturday to Zen for dinner ( 5 adults, 2 children). The ambience of this place is fairly decent. We ordered Soups, chicken and veg starters. For main course we ordered prawns, chicken and veg dishes. I must say that the food was good for my taste, although a little spicy. However my expectation from this place were a little too high. I am sure that the stewards observed that there are kids,but no suggestion was given to us offering a less spicy dish. i did not feel the captains/stewards to be interested in what they are serving. Being from hospitality industry, I do expect restaurant staff to build relationship, and that is something Zen should learn. After being asked to pack the left over food, I observed that they did not pack the Prawns dish! Unintentional or by accident??? When complained about it the next day, what I got in return is not worth mentioning... in totality, a bad service staff in an above average food restaurant...don't expect much.

One of the finest place in CP

If you need a place to chill with friends or to go on a date or have a nice time with your family this place satisfies you completely... No parking problem even on weekends. Starters & Soup are good, quantity is sufficient and prices are VFM. The cooling is also good considering the Delhi heat. A Must Visit If you are planning to enjoy a day out in CP.

Went to Zen and found the food reasonably priced and tasty. The service was unhurried but efficient. Being just 3 girls we felt comfortable and relaxed in the restaurant. We requested the order taker for food without chilli and he recommended sliced chicken with mushroom & spinach, Pokchoy & cabbage in oyster sauce and some steamed rice. We enjoyed the meal.

I would like to rate this restaurant amongst the very best in Delhi. The service was quite good. Upon inquiring , we were informed about the different varieties of wine available in the place. We went for a Hardy Merlot red wine. we also enjoyed a selection of veg and non-veg dishes and finished off our meal with a pot of green tea. Overall it was nice experience and we will definitely return to enjoy their good food and ambiance.

Must go to restaurant for Chinese,Japanese &Thai

I went to Zen while visiting India recently and was quite delighted with the food. The service staff was very friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend the sushi platter and teriyaki chicken. The silken tofu dish was delicious and so was the lemon chilli fish. The menu has numerous dishes and they all look very appetizing and reasonably priced. Since it was happy hours, the beers were also very cheap. I would love to go to this place again when I visit India next.

Must try

es, the place is always over-crowded coz its on the main walk of the inner circle at CP. still, it has its own chrm, especially if you are able to manege to get a seat in the hall. the mezzanine level used to be for smokers.

coming to the food, the Maguro Maki (tuna sushi) is my favorite... though u must ask for advice from the waiter before sinking ur fork into this sophisticated preparation. they use wasabi n soy sauce generously.

other than this, indian menu is also fairly good, cottage cheese being my favorite. pan-fried noodles had too much mint. tom yum soup was splendid!

people love this place for the fried jumbo prawns!! beverages are sufficient.

Visited this place to celebrate the birthday of one of our friends and I must say the staff was really courteous. Everything from starters to desserts had good taste. Fish item here is something which you can't afford to miss. We ordered Chicken Chilli, Zen Special Chicken, Fish with ginger and spring onions along with some Beer which was on happy hours. Though the service was a bit slow but since the place was full it was understandable. Would love to re-visit this place when i'm in CP next.

All our dishes were full of flavour and delicious..I have always enjoyed their chicken chilli, sweet corn soup and American Chopsuey.

This place is in inner circle right in the middle of Connaught Place which actually gives this restaurant an advantage in terms of accessibility.The staff is efficient and pleasant. Zen has a reputation of being a bit expensive, but it's definitely worth it for the experience for really high quality chinese food .

Also the interior is awesome , they have high ceiling which gives a grand feeling when you enter. You can opt to sit upstairs as well. and it gives you that feeling of new, relaxed environment.

The menu had so many different things that we wanted to try that it was a struggle to decide on what to order. It's definitely a spot worth going to if you have a lot of people so you can try an array of things.We started with Drums of heaven and Thai Spring Rolls. All were really good. The spring roll was particularly interesting. Our waiter recommended steamed sliced fish. The dish had a slight kick to it and really yummy. We ordered some fried rice to go with it which wasn't anything special. I could have easily made this at home.The service was great as well. Everyone speaks English and were happy to have a chat about the menu. I'll definitely return to try their other dishes.
