Let's be honest... Sometimes there is more to street Chinese food that's just really irresistible. And sometimes, there's something about fine dining Chinese food that's as great. Chi Zen is one of those. Very flavourful dishes and romantic atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.

This is a good restaurant in the Oryx Rotana and the food is enjoyable - we ordered some dumplings - sat outside and the service was great.

Just returned to Doha for a few days, ate here 3 times. Had a meal with friends, the other times we had the dim sum. Food is gorgeous, staff friendly, not too expensive being in a hotel. If we return to Doha again this restaurant will definitely be our first to visit. Highly recommend.

Food tastes good! As for the price, its a little bit pricey of course what can you expect, its inside Oryx Rotana. Food Staff are well-mannered and very accommodating! Nice ambiance as well

Visited the restaurant on Friday afternoon. Took a table outside next to the beautiful fountains. The duck bun is my favorite appetizer. Singapore noodle tastes great as well. We had 2 main meals : Chicken Kung Pao - must try. And Beef Pepper - the meat melts in your mouth. Unfortunately they don't come with a side dish like rice... More
