I’ve been trying to convince Mrs W to come here for over two years, and finally my daughter Chloe forced the point... we are staying in the hotel and I have to say this place went beyond my personal expectation... We were advised as it is Friday to go for the ‘Friday Special’ which was a mix of veg, seafood, chicken and beef dishes and superb lamb ribs.... accompanied by one of my favourite Japanese beers, ‘Kirin extra dry’ on draught....
The waiter Akbar, (a smashing guy) recommendation was spot on, food, service, timing, portion size all great... and the deal was if you liked something then order it again....
The lamb ribs got a second sitting and we’re better than the first lot...!! Then came the desert, which was a mixed fruit affair with a cheesecake mash up then the kicker came when the waitress introduced liquid nitrogen.... this also was worthy of another ‘sharing portion’ and 3spoons...!!
Can’t believe we took so long to visit this place given how often we are in the hotel.... Can’t wait to return to sample the full menu...

What a funky amazing restaurant. We loved this place. Our biggest issue was that we weren't hungry enough to truly experience and enjoy their menu. What we did eat was amazing. The restaurant itself is really well appointed and funky. A nice place to kick back with friends and share some good food, We had three dishes and they were all sublime. Do yourself a favour and give Zengo a visit!

Went for drinks on a Saturday night and had really great experience. Bartender Amrit is super nice guy who really suggested one of the best signature cocktails that I really fell in love with, called "Sleeping Dragon" (highly recommend)!

A vibrant and trendy restaurant with a resident DJ.

Service was attentive.

Food was good, however I did think my green curry looked more like the mushy peas from Geales (the restaurant beneath)
Luckily it tasted better than it looked!

We have tried a couple of Sushi restaurants all over the world and we were amazed by this beautiful restaurant. Surroundings is smashing with cool interior design and very friendly staff. We would like to thank Akbar especially who served our table. He really gave us his best choices which also became our best flavours. Try the desserts! If coming back we will for sure eat at Zengo agin.
