Extremely disappointed with the quality of food. The service we received was average to say the least, however what we found most disappointing was how the manager was shouting at staff members of which the entire restaurant could hear. We will not be coming back to dine hear.

Excellent food, the vegan menu was truly wonderful (especially for somewhere not fully vegan). My friends also enjoyed their (non vegan) food. The service was really good to.

The food was lovely, I did ask for it spicy and it wasn’t very spicy at all but I still enjoyed it, the service was a mess. The manager poured the remainder of the Prosecco down the drain in front of us after snatching it off my friend, and said your time is up, after she had told him she had put it near her mouth, whilst making a video.

Also my friend and I both have upset stomach’s.

We will not be visiting again.

Unfortunately we were running late so I rang Zen Metro to let them know we were going to be a few minutes late, the gentleman on the phone was very rude and said if we’re more than 10 mins late then not to bother to turn up, as our table is booked later on in the evening. When we turned up to the restaurant (5 mins late), the same older gentleman greeted us and again was very rude and abrupt. The other waiters/waitresses were very polite so we thought to forget about the rude gentleman and enjoy our night.

When our glasses were nearly empty one of the waitresses/waiters would fill then up which I thought was a nice touch. Our food came out hot and full of flavour, what a perfect start to our date night… or so we thought.

Before my partner had even finished his meal a waiter started to take our plates away even though it was very obvious we were still eating, as my partner had a mouthful of food at this point (this was when we still had 10 minutes left on our booking). Another waitress then came over with a dessert menu and before she could even ask if we wanted dessert the waiter that took the plates pushed her to the side, whispered something to her and they both walked off (I’m guessing he was telling her that it was coming to the end of our time slot and therefore we didn’t have time for desserts). At no point was it brought to our attention that it was coming to the end of our booking, they simply just took the plates away from us even when we were still eating from them! Surely it would have been more polite to let us know that we only had 10 minutes left of our booking, after all, our bill came to over £100 so we didn’t appreciate plates being taken away when we were still eating the food that was on them! Furthermore, none of the staff acknowledged us when we were leaving the restaurant either.

Ultimately, the food was amazing but the rude staff members was dissatisfactory so therefore we will not be returning, nor will we recommend Zen Metro.

It was the England semi finals so there was a group that was watching the game in there. So it took away from the zen feeling In there. But the food was amazing and staff were great.

A very relaxed and comfortable restaurant. Perhaps a little too quiet for 7.30pm on a Saturday night, but it began to get more of a buzz from 9pm. Food was excellent. I had the beef red curry and the beef was delicious and tender. My wife went for the steamed sea bass, which was meaty and delicious, all washed down with an excellent Pinot Grigio, which went surprisingly well with both the sea bass and the beautifully spiced red curry. The service was exemplary, efficient, friendly and attentive, provided by Sharuti, who deserves a special mention, for making our evening particularly memorable.

Ambience and experience was okay. Obviously felt rushed to finish and move off the table, however, good banter with staff, free complimentary drink for the birthday girl. Waitress needs to know what offers are available and be confident rather than backwards and forwards.

First time at this restaurant - good portions of top quality food, served hot where appropriate, friendly service - and with unlimited Prosecco/wine for 90 mins. the Bottomless Brunch is really good value - we will be back!
