Hi Sonia I can understand your concern, over the past couple of weeks, there has been increased activity, i think it might be because of the development work at the back by the canal as it's not been such a problem before, i have contacted the council and informed them of the situation and i have asked our pest management...

It's been a year since our last visit so we were really pleased that standards were just as high and it was another great meal. It took few minutes to get us seated as we'd turned up on spec on a busy Sunday evening but from then on, service was very efficient. The starters and mains were all excellent, the... More

Not sure if it was because it was busy, I've seen it busier, but our last meal wasn't quite as good as it has been previously, it was noisy and the staff were a little chaotic to be fair, service was slow, and my food was undercooked, only potatoes so nothing to make me ill, but just seemed to lack...

This was our first visit to Zest albeit for a takeaway but it won't be our last. Perhaps a little boring but we decided to order items which we know and like just to compare... Onion Bhaji, Samosa, Lamb Piri Piri Ribs and Chicken Tikka Samber and the usual rice and pappadums. All were cooked to perfection and extremely tasty.... More
