Food was excellent- both starters we had were incredibly moreish and the mains were similarly fantastic! It was brilliant to be able to have a combination of Asian cuisine and European, meant we could really just pick our favourites of both.

    Generally okay. The food was good, though overpriced. The service adequate. The experience was negatively impacted at the very end though. We were told we had to go to the counter to use the credit card machine and then the employee refused to split our check between two couples, claiming it would be too difficult. We were able to pay with two cards, using a calculator he provided. It’s also very unusual to add a service charge to a four top. Not impressed.

    Perfect Sunday lunch. We all had different starters and no one was disappointed, the flavours were amazing. I will be back just for the sauces which accompanied the spring rolls. The roast beef was so good and the vegetables perfect, especially the cabbage. My husband had the pork which was also delicious. The service was faultless. Great value for money and will definitely be back on next trip to Berkshire.

    Zest is a friendly, well run and very tasty restaurant. The food is lovely and in my personal opinion is one of the best restaurants in the area.

    Very relaxed atmosphere and even though we booked for 12.30pm and they were very busy, my friend didn't arrive until 1pm and they were very accommodating in still letting us have a table. Very friendly service, as always.

    I took my 12 yr old grandson to a pre Chelsea friendly at Madjeski Stadium. I have been eating at Zest for several years and as usual enjoyed the experience. My grandson enjoyed his Sunday Roast and Classic Lemon Tart very much.

    Once again we had a wonderful meal and experience at Zest Reading. The food is delicious and very well thought out. The service is attentive and courteous and every need is anticipated and taken care of. A wonderful place to go for a special occasion or when you want wonderful food

    The restaurant is a little gem, providing traditional dishes such as fish and chips or a burger, along with more unusual choices like Nasi Goreng or green thai chicken curry.
