Many meals at Zen over the years. Their quality has remained constant. It needs to keep up the pace with newer stand alone fine dining options challenging it. The service though remains spirited & efficient.

Fine dining, authentic far eastern food, great ambiance and a great retreat after a heavy dose of rock and roll at the Park's Some Place Else or the very popular disco, Tantra! Maybe a bit heavy on the wallet though!
