Enjoyed with a good friend. We both ordered the smoked chicken satay and noodle salad. This is a great location as mid way between both of our homes.

It was a supper club night with a nice mix of pan-asian cuisine.

Food was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful, but service was very slow, which presented a problem as our guests were on a restricted lunch break

Zest was recommended to me by a friend so I took a chance, having looked at the menu and noticing it had gluten/dairy free options, and booked it for lunch with an old friend. We were greeted really nicely and professionally and service was top notch. We both had the chicken peanut salad and it was absolutely divine! Had it not been rude to do so, I think we would both have licked the plates clean! Thanks!

I drove 28 miles to Zest to meet some friends. I had the chicken salad, with sate sauce, crispy noodles and avacado. Wow, was it good. I would drive the 28 miles back just to have it again !!

Not been here for 3 years and it was still excellent! The lady that runs Zest is friendly and bubbly. The food was gorgeous and portion was a nice big size. Wine was excellent too.
