Excellent Chinese meal with my son - first time at Zen Oriental. The crispy shredded lamb was something I hadn't seen before and was certainly very tasty. I'm not in Aberdeen often, but with such good food and a great location I'll definitely be there again.

Beautiful meal, very tasty and well presented. Definitely worth a visit. We went at lunchtime so need to make a reservation. It is a large restaurant so you shouldn't be turned away. Can't wait to go back, best Shredded Chilli Beef have had for a while!

Always the best in Aberdeen for many years! The whole family who own and work there make it extra special, nothing is too much trouble, such as my extra sauce with my Chicken Satay last night! I love it!

Excellent decor, ambience and service. The food was top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed it all. It was a bit quiet, i.e. lacking in atmosphere, but that was probably due to the road resurfacing outside which looked to be just about completed. We would go back.
