Just weeks ago we returned from a three week trip in Japan, visiting places like Tokyo, Kyoto, Sendai, Sakata, etc. but spent even more time countryside. We were not hard to convince that Japan is special, so are its people and we already knew that the Japanese kitchen produces the most amazing delicacies. So, when back in Europe, the Netherlands...

I would never expect an Asian style restaurant on this level in a small town like Bennebroek. we were with quit a big group and choose to have many different dishes. The range varied from traditional Chinese (Peking Duck) to modern Japanese (sushi with a'twist'). Some dishes were better then others hence only 4*. The sweat and sour chicken was... More

The restaurant was highly recommended to me as being first class Asian food. I disagree - living in Australia and being used to a large selection of good Asian restaurants my expectations are perhaps too high for this part of the world. The food seemed to be cooked to appease the taste of the Dutch, covered in glutinous sauce with... More

It is not cheap, but the food is really good. Have been there many times and the quality is consistent. I recommend ordering many small dishes to share. Our kids also love it and never seem to have enough.

We have been to this restaurant twice and we absolutely enjoyed our diner! It's a great mix of Asian cuisine. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A great place to dine with friends, Family or just as a couple.

Food quality very poor. Soggy spring rolls, gluggy dum-sum, beef dish prepared with deep-fried beef off-cuts. Not really restaurant quality. Servers also inattentive and unqualified. Terrible, disappointing experience all round.

Discovered this restaurant serving modern Asian food by chance. It proved to be a surprise treat on the road from Keukenhof to Harlem. The ambiance is cool, service swift and professional, but the food is outstanding. Very delicious, beautifully presented and good value for money,

Returning from a visit to the Keukenhof and feeling like Asian food, we found Zen by chance ... a happy encounter as it turned out. Parking was a slight hassle, but once in the reception was friendly, the service at a good pace and the choice of food an interesting fusion of Japanese, Chinese and Thai. A concept of composing...
