The restaurant is very large, spanning two floors. The entrance opens into a lounge area next to the bar and beyond and upstairs is seating dining. The dining area is spacious with plenty of space between tables. The kitchen is to the rear (you can see the chef’s from Parkway).
What makes Zenxi special is the service, which was professional, attentive, polite and informative. All questions about the food were answered well and the waiters were always close by.
The food was fantastic too. Portions were well presented, tasty and hot. The prawn crackers were huge (a little too many really) and the desserts were delicious; where else in Chelmsford can you eat deep fried ice cream and mango?
The sesame prawn toast was the best I have ever tasted, made with whole prawns too. The ribs were very tender and the satay chicken succulent. The mains were good too – although not as spicy as I was expecting. The Chinese green tea was also delicious and one pot was refilled all evening.
Zenxi is a great restaurant with excellent food and service. Well worth a visit!
