Zenxi lives up to the hype. Great food, and not too rich for Chinese. The icing on the cake was the bar manager Tom, the most passionate mixologist in Chelmsford. Great service.

Went here march '17 for a birthday meal. 15 of us including 9 children. We're always looked after when we come here and nothing is too much trouble. The food is always spot on and the cocktails amazing. I always make a point of never driving so I can enjoy the cocktails. The bar manager, tom, was so welcoming. We... More

We went on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was not particularly busy, perhaps 20% of tables taken. We selected one of the set menus and found all of the dishes were very well-executed and contained good quality ingredients. Portions are not stingy and next time we will pick an option without a middle course! Service was attentive without being intrusive.... More

First time visit on Saturday 25th February with friends and were seated on the mezzanine floor. Food was excellent and on a par with the best Chinese we have eaten in Chelmsford if a little on the costly side. Total bill for 5 was £196 (including drinks).Service was a little hit and miss ranging from prompt to very slow during... More
