It has been a few years since we have been to Zen, not for any reason it just went off our radar, previously, we always thought that it was an excellent high end Chinese restaurant sadly we left dissapointed on this occasion. Zen is not cheap so at these prices there is an expectation of good quality food well executed... More

Friends were staying at The Star (Jupiters) & an off the cuff decision to go to Zen. So glad we did. Great service & food. While it's not cheap, it isn't expensive either for the quality of food and service received. We'll definitely go back there. Mains varied between $25-$40 each for what we ordered.

My partner and I are regulars at Zen, located inside Jupiter's Casino. Every experience for us is a 10/10 and well worth the drive from Brisbane. The service is unbeatable and the food is consistently fantastic! We usually order the fried rice, crispy skin chicken, fried squid and sweet & sour pork. No one does crispy skin chicken like Zen....

Zen is open for lunch & dinner only & the food here is yummy. Such a wide selection to choose from. Casino reward members receive a discount depending on their play level.

That the restaurant is always well patronised, after at least two decades operating within the hotel/casino, speaks for its success. The staff are always on the ball and friendly, and tables are reset in a flash. We go specifically for the duck pancakes (no requirement to order a full Peking Duck) and crispy snake beans with chilly, because they are... More

Service from wait staff was excellent but the food offering was poor. Ordered a deep fried spicy pork dish and that's all it was and wasn't even spicy. At least the ginger and garlic prawns had a few snow peas. Living on past glories

Description
A far cry from the old-school Chinese takeaway, Zen boasts a thoughtfully-designed a la carte menu that will impress even the fussiest food critic. Cantonese, Szechuan and Peking flavours all combine to create a banquet of taste sensations – from salt and pepper, to sweet and sour. And with every dish lovingly crafted by our expert Chefs, Zen makes it clear that all Chinese food is not created equal.
