Never had Thai food before, but the taste at this restaurant was exceptional. From the depth and flavour of the food to the exceptional service. Super friendly staff, the recommendations and advice given. This restaurant is 5 stars....👌👌👌

We had a lovely evening at Zen Thai. The decor is beautiful and it’s got a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent quality and it was brilliant that you could choose your curry / stir fry and have whatever meat / fish /...vegetarian option you wanted in it. Very accessible menu and our prawn curries were super tasty! Thank you for being great hosts in the pretty town of Cheddar.More

It’s a lovely restaurant great ambience attentive staff well cooked food ! But ! The main dishes lacked the essential ingredient the meat ! Get this right and it would be a game changer but it shouldn’t have to be that way . Will we...back yes ! And hopefully just a little more of the main ingredient !More

Very disappointing selection for vegetarians and especially vegans. The menu online suggests that there are numerous options. However, when we got there (having travelled 10 miles) they stated they were about to update their menu. Nothing from the main courses could be veggie or vegan...and a few of the items that are still advertised as veggie contain fish; something we only found out because we explicitly stated we were vegan. The quality of the very limited things we could have was pretty underwhelming. Nothing was unpleasant but at the same time everything could have done with more seasoning and attention. They seriously need to update their online menu as this is very deceptive!More

Really good authentic Thai food with excellent service. Reasonably busy for a Thursday evening but had a great friendly atmosphere.

Booked in for our wedding anniversary whilst staying in the area for the weekend. A warm reception from all the staff, attentive but not intrusive throughout. Spoilt for choice by the menu but after some deliberation, we chose the starter to share & selected sesame...chicken toast, chicken satay, steamed dumplings & Thai spring rolls. Mains were Pad Thai & Chicken Penang with sticky rice - Superb! Just wish we lived nearer.More

Thank you to all at Zen Thai.More

It was definitely on the menu when we were there in August, although we had the banana fritters. If your visit depends on the dessert you're enquiring after, then I suggest you call them on 01934 740444 and ask.
