The most inspiring upscale vegetarian cuisine in Ottawa with an asian fusion slant to the menu. Intimate setting. Worth a visit, but be sure to have a reservation

When my wife and I first found out about Zen Kitchen in Ottawa, we couldn't wait to visit. As strict vegetarians, we are always looking for good, healthy vegan food and we were pleased to hear of this new restaurant in Ottawa.

Although the restaurant is small, the service, quality and taste at Zen is HUGE! We were delighted with our meals and can't wait to visit again. Chef Caroline's vision is amazing.

Zen Kitchen is on our "must visit" list for Ottawa.

Any dish on the many is absolutely fantastic. The menu is very diverse, from perogies, to thai soup. Each dish has a very unique and fantastic taste to it. The restaurant is very small, so reservations are definetely recommened. The atmosphere is nice as well, warm earth tones. The desserts were very rich. Overall, a very fantastic meal.

We've recently adopted the vegan lifestyle and though we enjoy meals prepared at home, eating out can certainly be a challenge. Not so at Zen Kitchen. The whole menu is available to us. What a treat!! Everything we had this evening was amazing. My husband has also cut out all fats from new way of life. To help him make an appropriate selection from the menu the chef came over to our table to make some recommendations. He also replaced an oil-based salad dressing for a fat-free one that he whipped up to accommodate. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be returning to this gem of a place. If you are considering trying out this wonderful restaurant, do make a reservation as it fills up fast.

This little unassuming place is fanatic. The service was great and the food was amazingly creative and so delicious. I had the untraditional breakfast with tempeh bacon and tofu eggs that were amazing. I am not a vegan, but I am open to trying new things and this place makes me want to try more vegan restaurants in the future.
Just go.
