Owner's description

Cocooned in the Heart of the Cathedral Quarter is the newest addition to the Zen Restaurant Group, the Cool and Elegant House of Zen.

Now open since April 2012, The House of Zen blends a little bit of The Orient into the Traditional cobbled streets and cosy bars of the Cathedral Quarter in Belfast. Eddie Fung’s next baby is an exciting venture which will combine dark and moody elegant décor with a Chinese menu never before seen in Belfast. A tangible energy will meet you at the entrance where our Masterchefs will tempt your palate with the aromas of slowly barbequed, tender ribs, chicken fillet or wings, wild mushrooms or Asparagus and succulent steaks slowly cooking on our outdoor barbeque. Perfect for summer OR winter evenings. Or try our House of Zen Signature Dish, Marinated strips of Fillet beef cooked to your liking !!

As a prequel to your meal however, you may wish to head inside to the waterfall clad cocktail bar to sample one of the famous freshly made cocktails (Think ice cool vodka, freshly squeezed Granny Smith Apples, a touch of fresh lime brought together with the expertise of the skilled cocktail shakers).

The combination of the deliciously mouthwatering  Chinese menu will ensure there is something for EVERYONE no matter what your taste. From the Molasses and Kumquat drenched soft tender Pork Belly to our melt in the mouth Lamb Claypot, this genuine Chinese Cuisine will satisfy any palate.

Our chefs will also be regularly treating you to a taste of Cuisine from EVERY area of China as we host special weeks/evenings of the culinary delights of the vast differing regions of this amazing country. From spicy Sczehuan to the summery clean and light flavours of Guangdong Province, our guests will have a chance to try the true tastes of China.

Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

Do you think it deserves to be better known?

Write a quick review now using our restaurant diary service. That way it might catch our attention. Next survey, you can transfer your diary entry into our survey system. Everyone who contributes 5 or more reviews in our survey will qualify for a free guide.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
