We always get our Chinese food from here - it's so tasty and fresh - it never fails. I've eaten plenty of Chinese and Cantonese over the years - this is simply the best, with friendly cheerful service to boot.

We ordered for delivery. The ordering was straight forward, delivery was within the eta, the delivery man was polite, and the food.....wow, this is the best Chinese we've had in a very long time. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, it was faultless. So tasty and finest ingredients used. This will definitely be our regular Chinese now.

This was our first to Zenz and it made a great impression with varied Chinese food served with great style and with a first class taste , very helpful and friendly staff , spacious areas between tables , a first rate wine list with a house wine that cost £4 less than in most restaurants. Will return very soon .

Went to Zenz with some colleagues for a dinner last summer and we were well received. The round tables are always a better option when you go to a restaurant with a group of people. Food was delicious and service was good. I really recommend to go if you like Chinese food! The prices are really reasonable - no more... More

Order on a weekly basis, by far the best oriental restaurant in Harlow. Staff are very welcoming and friendly.

We were staying at the Premier Inn not too far away and fancied a change from the Beefeater attached so decided to drive into Old Harlow and seek out this restaurant based on the reviews. We were a little apprehensive to discover we were the only diners but as we sat looking at the menu, there was a steady stream... More

Great restaurant, great food and great staff. Really hard to find any fault. The soft shell crab is fantastic and the sea bass is also good. The waiter also have us a lift home as we couldn't get a cab. Recommend!

Comfortable surroundings and although meal took some time to arrive it was obvious why - it was nice and fresh. Myself, I prefer this than the use of too many sauces from out of the bag. Staff were simply lovely.
