We went looking for the old Zenith Cafe...they had moved to a new location...but as we struggled to find the old venue, a moto-taxi guy came up to us with a piece of paper telling us he would bring us there and they would pay for a taxi to the new venue. Great!! Such a good service...we jumped in and were brought to the new place free of charge.
That was where the good things ended.
The menu looks great...lots of vegan options and really extensive. BUT...every meal we ordered was bland. There was a distinct lack of seasoning in all the dishes (we were a group of 5 and all tried something different). The mains were all in the 110-140 dong range which is expensive. You expect top notch flavours for this price.
On top of that we found the service cold and impersonal...
The setting was quite sterile too...clean and functional, but not the oasis we had in mind according to reviews and lonely planet.
Maybe the chef was sick, or they were having a bad day...but we all came away feeling disappointed by bland and expensive food.
Cons: Expensive, Bland, Location
