Staff were very attentive but not intrusive in any way and food was excellent, I would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends without hesitation
We dined at Zen on Friday 30thMarch and the overall experience was excellent. Food, staff, table situation and ambience of the restaurant in our opinion is the best we have experienced for many years. We dine out every week and we will certainly be back soon. Regards Alice & George Jennings
Last evening was my first visit to Zen and it was a delightful experience. The food was excellent, the staff were courteous and friendly and the atmosphere was perfect.
party of 6 for New Years Eve dinner. we arrived early but had a drink at the bar followed by the sharing feast. can't fault it !.
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.
All I can say is best Chinese meal I have ever had , the food was amazingly cooked to perfection , the staff were excellent , and setting of the place is beautiful . Definitely recommend the zen oriental the best Chinese that me and and my wife have ever had. Regards Gordon and Nicola taylor
We had a lovely meal at Zen Oriental. Restaurant has a nice atmosphere and all the staff provided a very attentive service throughout. Consistently good over the years we've been going.
The food was lovely, quick and fresh. Staff were very friendly too. The only down side I would say is that the music could've been a little bit louder, if there weren't a big table of people next to us, it would've been very quiet. Highly recommend.
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!
I have been to zen quite a few times & the service & the food is always great . The staff are fantastic & as it was my daughter & sons birthday we all had a great night . Will be back soon . Regards
