    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.

    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.

    Having mentioned it was my wife's birthday as we sat down, the waiter remembered and surprised us with a desert to share at the end of the meal for no charge.
