While it takes a lot to make things special. I had planned my lunch date in The Leela Palace on 31st October 2022. With all the excitement and enthusiasm we chose to go to the best restaurant - Zen (for Chinese cuisine) We ordered three...items Tom Kha vegetable soup, Edamame and black truffle dumplings, and Avacado tartar. It looked so tempting and we expected it to be a world-class experience. We were having a great time with the aura and ambiance and then started with soup. Experience - The soup tasted good but unfortunately, after one spoon I found a tiny hair in the soup. It was so heartbreaking. With a heavy heart, I called the service person and asked her for a replacement. While she was apologetic about it my mood was a bit off. But then I held myself back and started with Avacado tartar and then unbelievably something awful happened -- I found a hair again. Well that was it I had lost my patience and interest. It was so frustrating to get such quality food. I would stay back from going there for a while at least. All the staff members including the manager Mr. Ranjan and Miss Suchismita Roy were kind enough to apologize and accompanied us till exit. But, after having such an experience I had no mood at all to try anything. I suppose this was a bad day and hope it happens with none. All I wanna say bad days do occur and it was one of those days. I was so ashamed that my date was ruined as well. But please do take care and hope this never happens again. Good luck guys!!More

When I first got to the Zen restaurant, I was skeptical about everything, taste, preparation etc Chef Patil proved me wrong, he spoke to us, understood what our expectations were and he blew our taste buds with some of the best Japanese cuisines. From starters...to the main course he prepared them personally, came to our table to get our feed back and made sure we were satisfied. We can't thank him enough for everything he has done. Debtanu was cherry on the top with his recommendations to try new deserts like tabtimkrob, which was amazing BTW. Zen restaurant has made our stayat Leela Palace a special one. We will come back for more. Thank you, Chef Patil.More
