I was extremely disappointed with this place. The yum cha items were over fried and tasteless. We decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and went back on a Sunday since it was the only vegetarian place which seemed to be open in central Adelaide. We chose other dishes but they weren't much better. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We've been here many many times and had some really good and some really bad nighs at Zen House. The vegan SFC Burger with Satay and vegan Mayo is amazing and the Yum Cha are great - however like a lot of Asian places - don't expect the entree to be served before the main. It really depends on the staff it has been a lot better lately but in the past orders were forgotten and take away orders took up to 45 min. It still is a great place to enjoy a burger, some yum cha and tea!Pros: location, vegan SFC burger, cheap!
My husband and I ate here last night and it was wonderful. We couldn't decide what to pick as there are so many great things on the menu. In the end we ordered a few different things to share. We ordered : Vegan SFC, Cream of corn soup, Samosas, Dim sim, Chickpea burger. Everything was vegan and everything was just incredible! So much flavour. We were both very impressed with this place. If you like tea then you're in for a treat as they have an extensive tea menu. I'd go here again in a heartbeat!Pros: Great menu, Good prices, Good portions
oh my, you have to try the fried crispy chicken - vegan SFC!!!
this place is so lovelyPros: good value, well decorated, yummy
I would got to this place for every meal if I could. Pretty much! It has a huge range of food from burgers to herbal tea to Malaysian style curries and I've never been disappointed. The satay tofu salad is light and refreshing. The burgers are great if you have a junk food craving. Those are my favouritesPros: Healthy, Location , Vegan SFC
Zenhouse offers a wide selection in a comfortable, friendly and clean atmosphere. A massive tea selection made the experience a delight for me, with the "smelling pots" to sample the different blends. For meals, I loved the SFC and Ginger not-chicken.
We have been to Zenhouse on many occasions - our favourites are the ginger not chicken, curry not chicken and the original fried rice (no egg).
Meals are usually consistent but one thing we were not great fans of is their burgers - a little dry and lacking flavour.
Overall a great place with a huge range of vegan dishes available.
I have been to Zenhouse several times and ALWAYS enjoyed it! If you're a tea drinker, you will be spoilt for choice with their huge tea menu!
They offer Yum-cha which is delicious but most of it is deep fried, so I wouldn't order too many! The meals are a mixture of east and west delights. I find the mains are always GOOD but not always GREAT. Their Laksa cannot compare to 'Vegetarian Garden' But I'm a big fan of the Vegan crispy fillet burger!
If you want something sweet after your meal they even offer vegan ice-cream. I highly recommend the Durian ice-cream if you want to try something different!
Friendly staff, lovely decor and atmosphere, and reasonably priced (I wouldn't call it 'cheap' but definitely affordable) I always look forward to eating here!Pros: good opening hours, beautiful teas, lots to choose from
My first time ever in Adelaide and Zenhouse has been the biggest part of my beautiful holiday memories! The staff are very nice, understanding, and accomodating. The varieties are excellent, from Chinese food to Malaysian to Thai and Northern Indian to Western fast food ...... all here in one place!
The best thing is, it is the ONLY Vegetarian Restaurant that opens for dinner in Adelaide (others closed at 3-5pm). So being a strict vegetarian, Zenhouse has also saved my life while in Adelaide. Otherwise where else can I get a pure vegetarian dinner every night?
During my 6 days and 5 nights stay, I have maximised my visit to Zenhouse by trying many dishes in their menus, which are: SFC burger & fries, King fillets in Assam sauce, Assam curries, Red mock duck, bakuteh soup, Fried Rice in zenhouse sauce, satay, samosas, roti, Tofu pillow with sambal sauce, mee goreng, etc. But the winning menu so far would be: MALAYSIAN PETAI (Satir Nuts) with ribbon fish fillets and belacan sauce! WOW!!!!! It is smelly for people who are not used to the smell of petai (sator nuts - equivalent to the smell of durian). But my God it was divine.... it brought me back to my childhood, to my mum's cooking...... I would strongly suggest you to try this dish (but brave yourself for the smell).
Everything was cooked to perfection, really well done. Eventhough not a cheap restaurant to dine in, but it is definitely worth a visit (or more)! This is one of very rare Malaysian Vegetarian Restaurants in Australia.
And after all the over-indulging, their selections of teas would rescue you....... try "Digestion" tea and "Detox and Cleanse" tea as they would really help your stomach to get back in balance after all the heavy indulging.
Thanks again, Zenhouse for making my holiday memorable!
Zenhouse is wonderful...in all aspects:
...the main meals, drinks, loads of energizing and delicious teas to choose from, their homemade ice cream of rice milk and fruit i can't get enough of & quick preparation...
the owners and employees are real super humanbeings :D
five star restaurant all the way, you must go and definitely get a teapot or two!
I live in Adelaide and I have been here plenty of times. It isn't my favourite Vege Restaurant in Adelaide but it is very nice and the people are friendly, but it doesn't open that late unfortunately and it isn't a large venue, but it's nice if you're going alone, or with a couple of people.Pros: yummy food, nice staff
This is the best vegetarian restaurant in Adelaide and perhaps Australia. We travel around Aus regularly and this place is always fresh, clean and the owners are very nice. The best dish is the fried chicken and the laksa. Definitely worth visiting.Pros: great food, nice owners, always clean / fresh
The satay was really good and nice Asian touch. The Tofu and Tempeh salads, whilst good, are a little bland with just some lettuce making up the bulk of the salad after the tofu or tempeh. The tempeh would be improved by being marinated. Overall though, worth a visit and good wholesome vegetarian Asian food.Pros: Pleasant setting, Pure vegetarian
Zenhouse, a place with a true Zen experience, is such a relaxing place to be in. I tried many of their recipes including SFC (salty fried chicken), chickpea & lentil patties burger, vegetarian curry, frozen ice cream to their takeaway cinnamon tea. As there's a limited number of high quality vegetarian restaurant in Adelaide, I have found myself going back to Zenhouse to try out more new recipes and their delicious Asian main courses.
I disagree with krock's con review (bad outdoor seating) because one can always request to be seated inside instead.
For serving size, I believe that it's based on personal preference. For example, the chickpea & lentil patties burger has the ability to fill an empty stomach more than just a snack. Probably I am bias because I am a vegetarian monk and I don't use lots of energy doing physical work like others do.
All in all, this is a vegetarian place not to miss out when you visit Adelaide. Highly recommended!
Awesome yummy vego food. The chicken nugget sandwich with vegan mayo is delicious as is the salty fried chicken, its just like KFC. The atmosphere is okay, the room is pretty bland and the seats not so comfortable so i prefer to do a big take away order. The staff are really nice and happy to help you decide. plus the sell great frozen foods and ice cream to go. Enjoy Zenhouse its delicious.Pros: Cheap, in the city , great staff
easily one of the best and most professional vego/vegan restraunts in adelaide...delicious food, great menu selection and great dining experience and atmosphere....SALTED FRIED CHICKEN is famous now! the big buns are the best things ever and the whole menu is really nice..try the soya rib king for a bbq treat...they are also the local distributors for alot of vegetarian products- which they sell in their store (freezer in the corner) great food...highly recommendedPros: food, food
