I rarely give 5 stars, but Zen Gardens is almost there. The food is very, very fresh, the dumplings are delicious and seemingly home-made, the menu has many imaginative things on it, and service is friendly and efficient. I've now eaten here twice (once in...More

I have only visited once and was excited to try a new place, especially since this restaurant had high reviews. I was very disappointed. We ordered three dishes for the family to share. Sweet and sour chicken - good and more than enough sauce which...More

Ordered sesame chicken and tangerine chicken. When delivered we could not tell the difference visually on the plate.
