I acknowledge first off that I am torn about this review. Clearly, there was something wrong at the restaurant last night. But our meal was a disaster and it ruined our plans for the evening. As vegans, we appreciate a restaurant like this and have eaten at the one in Cambridge, which was superb. This is a chain or franchise,... More

This restaurant has so many good reviews I thought it would be worth while. Boy was I wrong. We were seated right away. We were the only couple in the restaurant. It took forever for our server to come and take our order. We waited and waited and waited. We almost got up and left. The food was very mediocre.... More

After becoming vegetarian, I missed eating BBQ pork buns, sticky rice, and other traditional Chinese food that commonly includes meat. Somehow Zen Gardens makes vegetarian dim sum taste as good if not better than traditional dim sum. Highly recommend the BBQ pork buns, sticky rice, and veggie pork. Not only is the food incredible, they treat you like family. They... More

This was my first ever visit to one of these vegetarian / vegan restaurants. My wife and I were just driving by the Guelph location while hunting for a suitable place for a late lunch / early dinner. I can state that all of the food was exceptionally tasty with great presentation. The staff were very helpful and after stating... More

Have eaten here many times and it never disappoints! Service is great, food is awesome. Everything is vegetarian, so you can order things like Kung Po Chicken without fear! Personal favourite is the veggie sushi, but am highly partial to the crispy soy fritters.

My partner and I went for lunch in June, 2014. It was a very nice day so we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful day. We ordered from the lunch specials menu. It consisted of many meat dishes, like BBQ pork, Shrimp or Chicken, but there is no meat what so ever as this is a vegetarian restaurant. To our... More

I've eaten here twice on business trips to Guelph. It's so delicious, and the staff is super friendly and helpful. There are so many choices, which I'm not used to as a vegan. The first time I ate there, I was the only customer.The second time, there were two women at another table. I hope that people start eating here... More

We are not vegan and enjoyed trying new food. Our daughters are vegan and we thought we would try a restaurant for all of us. We have went several times and have enjoyed the iced teas.
