We started out with the chips, salsa and guacamole, which was good but standard. I ordered the Indian Curry Potatoes with Lentils and it was very flavorful with excellent spice. My friend ordered the Thai Sunrise: black coconut curry rice & sesame stir fried veggies, cashews. Really well done food at good prices. The staff, however, hardly took care of us and would get upset if we asked them for help, saying "I'll find YOUR waiter". It was weird. But a couple of drinks and the only vegan place I'd eaten on my trip through Utah made me forget that we had bad service. If I was in SLC I would eat here again.

In town from Texas - meeting up with a colleague from New York. As he is a major foodie I made him pick our lunch destination. He picked Zest. I probably wouldn't have visited without his nudge - a foodie made me do it.

And I'm glad he did.

I had the manicotti and he had the super food salad. To my absolute delight it was delicious. The use of zucchini in the dish was perfect - not overbearing at all. And the filling was yummy. I also loved both the pesto and pepper sauces. My favorite of the two was probably the red pepper sauce.

Fun ambiance and good service helped us to have a great trip there. I'd go there again for sure.
