The food is lovely, the staff friendly, but it's a bit expensive and does get very busy and noisy. The drinks are also expensive.

I am writing this after our third outstanding visit to Zenxi. We pre-booked a table and visited on Saturday night - as always, the restaurant was full - no empty tables in sight, so definitely advise booking beforehand! Dress up, as everyone looks good in this place! The tables are well lit, but still has an intimate feel. It's good... More
