The low hanging table lights surrounded by near darkness make for an almost private dining experience. Excellent service and great dishes notably Pork Dumpling and Spicy King Prawns ( lots of them ). Missed out on trying the Cocktails which I did not realize are a house speciality. Will return to try them and arrange a taxi home.

Ordered the crispy duck and it was cut into generous portions. Had the cherry blossom cocktail and that didn't disappoint, top notch cocktails. On the expensive side for Belfast but it is in a nice location. Would definitely come back.

We had a really enjoyable meal at The House of Zen. It was easy to find and when we arrived were shown quickly to a table. Very busy and we didn't book. Had a well positioned seat and could see lots of interesting and creative meals coming from the kitchen. Exquisite meal and excellent quality. We really enjoyed the meal... More

Went here for an early dinner before a concert. Really nice decor. Staff friendly and attentive. Had dim sum to share for starter, really nice. Then I had asparagus wrapped in rib eye steak for main, it was delicious too. Not a great selection of desserts. Cocktail list amazing, had a cocktail called bonsai tree, it was really nice.
