Description
A far cry from the old-school Chinese takeaway, Zen boasts a thoughtfully-designed a la carte menu that will impress even the fussiest food critic. Cantonese, Szechuan and Peking flavours all combine to create a banquet of taste sensations – from salt and pepper, to sweet and sour. And with every dish lovingly crafted by our expert Chefs, Zen makes it clear that all Chinese food is not created equal.
