We have been there three times. The first time the service and the food was great! However the third time, the service was extremely slow and ineffective. I think that the waitresses should have more training about how to service guests.

Upon entering the unassuming storefront of Zen, located in a strip mall in Markham, it is difficult to imagine that there is anything beautiful within. Once you walk through the doors and you are greeted by the kind staff, you realize the restaurant is in...More
