I have actually always really enjoyed this restaurant. Quaint atmosphere, server/owner that always remembers you, and excellent tasting food. The problem is the last few times i have gone I have been disappointed. They use to serve their food in nice dishes and now they come out on styrofoam or paper plates and there is less of it even though... More

I feel like this place deserves better ratings. Although the exterior is somewhat uninviting, the food there is really good. They also sell some international vegetarian produce. All in all, I had a great dinner, and this place was more that I was expecting.

I have to admit, if I had reviewed Zen Gardens a few years ago, it would have been 5 stars for sure, now not so much. The food has not changed and that's the good thing and the reason it still get's 3 stars. The food has always been so amazing and delicious that I would still go back, it's... More

Although the English may not be the best, the food is pretty good. The best is the fruit tea, must try. The food although vegan, still can offer a great tasty selection.Prices are also very reasonable,and the service is very attentive, and accommodating.

Over the last few year we come to this restaurant once or twice a year for a vegetarian/vegan type of meal. In the past it offered many unique and amazing choices. It seems that it is now under going a conversion to a take out place with very simple and limited menu choices. WE all had one of the three... More

Took my mom here who is a vegan. I actually eat meat and I didn't mind the food, when I usually hate vegetarian restaurants. Very well priced

Today was my second visit to Zen Garden. Both visits have been for lunch (my first visit was in January). As this is a vegetarian restaurant, I have tried my favourite 'meat items' with replacement veg-ingredients (to give myself a fair comparison to things I know and love). At Zen Garden, meat is basically changed out of dishes for things... More

Being vegan in Cambridge is a little tricky when it comes to going out for meals. Zen is wonderful with really good service! I've been several times, both eat in and take out. The only problem is that lately I've had to call in advanced to see if they have my favourite dish - vegetable curry with mushrooms. It's been... More

Zen has the best vegetarian food in the city. It is healthy and hearty. They are Buddhist and this is reflected in the tranquility of the restaurant, the service and incredibly -the food. Their tea is amazing. If you are looking for a very relaxing place for tea, lunch or dinner, this is your place.
