Cannot praise this amazing venue enough! Was celebrating a big birthday and wanted a surprise. The staff really helped me as I was trying to organise whilst transiting across the world, then Thailand! The set up was breathtaking and so beautiful and the food and service were impeccable! Would highly recommend! Thanks again so so much!

I had one bite and couldnt eat more. The main came with the steak and scallops. The scallops were fine but the steak was either very... More

Me and my gf have been guests at Zazen's restaurant thanks to the enthusiastic indication of a good friend of us which has been there before. Then, we arrived at Zazen at 6pm to enjoy the beautiful twilight time while sipping a tasty aperitif and watching the evening sea view. Everything around us looked tinted in electric blue, as the...

We spent a wonderful two weeks in Thailand and decided to celebrate it in zazen . A first impression was stunning- beautiful interier, amazing garden, extremely welcoming waiters. We ordered a Thai seafood tasting menu ( around 1200 bat ) and lobster menu (2700) Generally saying food was good but not more then this. Heavily overpriced for what you get.... More

The food was amazing. The location is stunning (though tough work for a wheelchair) We had 3 courses as part of our 18th Wedding Anniversary meal and the quality, taste and presentation was spectacular. It was truly a taste extravaganza and I would have no issue in recommending this restaurant to anyone. The menu is comprehensive as is the wine... More

I've never experienced such attentive and caring service at a restaurant before. The food itself is top notch as well. The whole atmosphere there was so peaceful and our evening was the perfect addition to our honeymoon. To top all this off, the spontaneous thai dancing show gave a special twist to the already amazing tale!

There was a big group of us that went to Zazen for my big 40. The restaurant itself was amazing to look at and had such a romantic feel. Staff were very attentive and the food was superb. Thank you Alexandra for all the help and support you offered my boyfriend to arrange this wonderful evening.

Ate here with my wife and a friend. Delicious meal with lots of vegetarian/vegan options. Staff is very willing to accommodate any changes to the dish in order to cater for your dietary needs. Bathroom visit ia through the shop but well worth as it is beautifully decorated. Fantastic view on the ocean. Great experience.

What can I say, this place is superb. It is difficult to explain how special the decor is and how perfect the attention to every small detail. I was blown away by the look, the feel, the service, the food and it was all capped off by exquisite views.
