Zen Japanese/Asian Restaurant Belfast

Updated on November 9, 2012

Have you tried Zen before?

5 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of Zen Restaurant

Why I Love Zen Restaurants

Japanese food has always seemed like a real treat to me. If it is something you endeavor to try or perhaps you have already developed a love for it either of the Zen restaurants in Belfast would be worth a visit. Not only is the food delicious and beautifully presented, but the service is second to none and the restaurants are decked out in authentic ornate Asian furniture, really adding to the unique atmosphere.

Another reason I personally love them though is that sticking to my eating plan is simple as I can have asparagus wrapped in steak, meaning that even a few weeks out from a competition I can have a lovely meal out.

More options than you may think

I had my Wedding Reception in Zen Restaurant and although I love it I was concerned that my mother-in-law and my father would not be able to find anything they would like, being in their own words "plain eaters". Fortunately, the menu is much wider ranging than you would initially imagine and on top of that the chefs are very eager to please. We also had one member of the party who was vegetarian and there was a large assortment of foods brought out to accommodate him.

My Final Word

I have celebrated my 30th, had my wedding reception and many other enjoyable nights out in Zen restaurants Belfast. I have been joined by a wide variety of different people from vegetarians, fitness competitors, "plain eaters" and children. To this point everyone has enjoyed the food and the experience. Do yourself a favour and book in, especially with Christmas coming up, a Japanese meal can make a very welcome change to the standard Turkey and Ham.
