Cute little jem.

I really loved the atmosphere of Zen Gardens, it was cute, windows open, just perfect. The food was great, a lot of soy based stuff, but good. Extremely cheap! Got a lot of food for the money! I will be back many times. Owner is extremely friendly.
I did hear the microwave going as well. lol But I'll take good food in the microwave with that price for a nice change over expensive vegan places.

Pros: cheap, atmosphere, good food
Cons: microwaving food

Awesome Blossom

Pretty tiny menu overshadowed by their vast selection of teas.

That said, I believe we ordered 2/3 of the menu we were so hungry, and everything was delightful. We've come to expect this from the King's Cafe group of restaurants.

It was in a funky old dark building, too, with high ceilings and a musty wooden interior. Nice!

Pros: tea heaven, dependable
Cons: small selection

Delicious Vegan Chinese Food

5 Posted on 04 / 25 / 2009

Whenever I am in Moncton I always dine at Cafe Calactus. I love it there! An employee at the hotel we were staying at told us about Zen Garden and how good it is. We decided to give it a try and we were extremely pleased. The restaurant has a relaxing vibe. There is an extensive tea list (60 varieties). We enjoyed fantastic sweet and sour soup, sushi roll, fried noodles, five-grain rice dumpling, and stir-fried veggies. The noodles, while fried were not greasy. The soup was my favourite. I had medium spicy and at first I thought the spiciness level was mild it does creep up. None of the food was greasy or drenched in sauce yet very flavourful. The server was wonderful. He was very friendly and helpful. This place is unpretentious. While everything on the menu is vegetarian, there are some items which are not vegan. The waiter was clear on which items were not vegan. We'll definitely be returning. People in Moncton are really lucky to have two such great veg places to eat!

Pros: food, ambiance, service
Cons: no liquor

i've found the restaurant i've been searching for

5 Posted on 01 / 12 / 2009

if you have not been, please go. it features an entirely veg menu, and largely vegan. it is a tea house with 60 tea varieties. reasonably priced foods too! we had the best hot and sour soup i've ever had. it made the stuff i used to love at a place who's name i can no longer remember look like canned soup! well, that is too harsh, but, it was just great! well balanced broth and just the right amount of food stuffs floating about in there.
i had a dumpling too...i think it was called 5 grain dumpling maybe? anyway, it was mainly grains, rice and chickpeas, but, as i entered the dumpling (which stood about 4 inches tall), it kept revealing treats...a shitake here, a seitan strip there and so on! fun food!!

anyway, go there.

Pros: subtle flavours, great service, well priced

great little restaurant

we stopped by this great little restaurant on our way to PEI. we were glad we made a reservation as it is quite popular. we (party of 4 adults and 3 kids) were seated in a peaceful beautifully decorated semi-private room. the food was very good as well. i'm from taiwan, so the steam buns and the dumplings suits my taste. most items on the menu are vegan.

Amazing place!

The Zen is located not far from where I work and where I live, so I go there often. I just love it there. The atmosphere is very peaceful and the staff is very polite. The food is amazing. At first, I didn't know what to order, everything was new, but I tried almost everything on the menu and my favorites are the vegetables, the shao mais, sticky rice wrap, hot and sour soup, the soy protein nugget and the dumplings. I recommend this place for people who want to eat light and not feel stuffed and uncomfortable. One other thing I recommend is the almond tea. :D

This a very peaceful little taiwanese veggie restaurant with all kinds of little goodies like dumplings, sushi, veggie bun, rice wrap ect... The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly. The only problem as another reviewer stated is their hours of service are limited...especially for a tea house!!!

I recently discovered this restaurant and I am impressed by the atmosphere, its very peaceful and calming with soothing music playing and also offers several delicious teas and vegetarianfood, served in a very pleasing manner. My first look at the menu was intimidating since this food was all new to me but everything I have tried is delicious. My favorites are the hot&sour soup, sticky rice roll and the spring rolls. I really believe that food tastes better when it is prepared by someone who is peaceful and loving and although I have not met the person preparing the dishes at Zen Garden I always leave there feeling good! :)
