My wife and I met her daughter here for lunch. We ordered 2 Grilled Salmon Salads, one with Gluten-Free dressing, a Apple Green Salad, and three Bubble Teas, one Passion Fruit, one Strawberry, and one Mango. Everything was wonderful!

Stopped in with my wife to grab some tea and relax. Server was very helpful and knowledgable about the teas. We didn't order any food but had her full attention and she was great. Awesome selection of teas.

We really enjoyed the restful atmosphere of the ZenCha tea salon. The waiting staff are very pleasant and, when you sit down, bring you a sample of the tea of the day as well as the ubiquitous and very welcome glasses of cold water. Our favourite dish was the Japanese pancake 'okonomiyaki'. They offer an extremely wide variety of teas... More

If you can't find a tea you'll like on this menu, then you won't like any tea. They have a wide variety of teas, not only of various types of teas but from various regions. My colleagues and I stopped here on a break from meetings and we all enjoyed the various teas we received. They also have a lunch... More

Right across the street from the excellent Residence Inn, this place was a gem to visit. They were kind enough to make me a Soy Decaf Green Tea Latte and boy was it good! I also had some vegetable ramen which was very tasty. Cute and hip little place with friendly service.

Although I have yet to taste a better bubble tea or Boba, the service is painfully slow, and the prices are painfully high. If you have yet to try ZenCha, it is solely worshipped because it is a fad. You are not missing out.

A friend and I stopped here after brunch one Sunday. The ambiance is nice and the service good. We each got a pot of tea and shared the 3 scone plate. Everything was delicious. I am very picky about my chai and this was one of the best I have ever had. I highly recommend it!

This was my first visit to ZenCha in Bexley and it might be my last, based on the service and food. On the plus side, their tea menu is very extensive, with a wide variety of teas from England, China, Thailand, Japan, Germany, and even Africa...and I may have missed a country or two! They also have a large menu... More

Respite from rain and mass predictability. Oh, green tea cheesecake! No loathsome clatter, no birthday songs, no prattle, just the brew of tea.

This place is overpriced and the quality is mediocre at best. Ask for a drink without ice or milk, and they will only fill it halfway, because "that's all the tea that you are paying for" (a staff member literally said this to me). Meanwhile at every other tea or coffee shop in the country, you are politely asked whether... More
