Food was lacklustre and mediocre flavour. A couple on the table behind were obviously a VIPs as they arrived after, were served first and attended to constantly whilst our attempts to get attention went mostly unnoticed.

The decor is nice particularly the clever use of the mirrored entry and nice glass screen to the service stairs. Will not be going back.

We are a family of seven ranging in age from 11-77 years. We all loved our meal at Zheng Chelsea. The King Bao, just spicy enough, was my favourite and Mango Chicken was delicious. We had the prawn spring rolls and coconut rice and the mango pudding were all delightful. The service WAs welcoming and polite. We all would recommend this charming Malaysian Restaurant.

Very good food and flavors, as well as a very attentive personnel. Perfect place for Asian food lovers with very interesting combinations while being loyal to the traditional Chinese and Malaysian cuisine.

Starter platter was exactly what we wanted; sauce with the chicken satay was top notch. However the roti canai with chicken curry was a big disappointment - not at all typical of the classic Malaysian dish. So overall cannot recommend that.

Every dish was perfect today. Crispy shredded beef and mild chicken curry.

Amazing reviews online - but in reality, the food was really not very nice. It came out so quick.. could have been from a buffet Thai. Definitely wasn't fresh. So so average. Such a shame!!

Zheng was fantastic. As far as Malaysian food goes, this was pretty much for dining, but try were able to maintain the street-style flavour and essence which we impressive. Their Nasi Lemak was one of the best I've had. The ambience of the restaurant was stunning too, not too big and not too small either. The only thing I'd criticize is one of the staff members. She was very rude, unfriendly and kept ignoring us at one point. The other waiter that worked with us on the other hand, was very warm and welcoming.
Would definitely go again.

I’ve been here with friends a few times before and food and service were always good. However I was disappointed with last night’s dinner. Everything went well until tea. My female friend and I happened to pick the same kind of tea - mint. When the tea came, we got 2 cups but only 1 teapot for us to share - same standard individual sized teapot that our male friend got to enjoy himself. We explained that we had ordered 2 tea but we were told that they charge per person and that they could add more water later anyway - oh how generous! When the bill came, we indeed got charged for 2 tea when in fact, we only got 1 standard individual sized teapot . My friend and I felt robbed and disgusted. And no, we did not bother to ask for more hot water! They can add that to their cost savings.

The food was really good, we had a few dim sum dumplings, soup and the sambal seabass which was delicious. The service was a bit lacking, the food took a long time to be delivered, maybe 30-40 minutes between appetizers and mains. At no point during this time did someone come by and offer any additional drinks or anything. However, it was not a deal breaker, and I would try again.

I had booked a late lunch on Saturday for 3 pm and when I entered the restaurant it was completely empty. I stayed till 5:30 and the restaurant remained completely empty till then, so not much of an ambience. As we were the only ones in the restaurant staff were really attentive and service was quick. I enjoyed the duck pancakes however the chicken sui mai lacked flavour and was quite watery on the inside. We had ordered the two main dishes which were marked as very spicy in the menu, however they were disappointingly not spicy as all.

I need to admit we arrived really late for dinner, around 10.30pm, but if you accept my reservation I pretend to have a dinner like anyone else before me, not just a few things warmed up and served.
The crispy beef was so hard to chew and the noodles were cold.
I left really disappointed

The food was very good but service was terrible, very surly, my partner was presented with a prawn version of a dish when veggie had been ordered, no apology and very slow replacement which meant she ate alone or my food went cold
Expensive bottled water was served Luke warm, had to chase for beer order twice
Would not return, food let down by the worst service I have seen in London for some time, no surprise that the restaurant was virtually empty!

Enjoyed a lovely evening. The service was very good and accommodate our needs very well.

The food was very good. My roti canai with chicken curry was not spicy enough despite on the menu being stated spicy.

The mango pudding was so delicious.

Overall, good evening out.

Friendly staff and great ambiance make for relaxed and enjoyable dining here. The food is well up to scratch and as spicy as you can take it; order extra sambal if you are habituated. Nice wine list too. Definitely go back here again.

A shadow of what it was. I've been going here quite regularly since it opened. Unfortunately this last visit has put me off going again. There was no one to welcome us when we walked in. Service was perfunctory at best and actually offhand at times. Food is actually still ok, but the portion size has shrunk and the value for money is now very poor indeed. My attempt to raise this gently with the staff was met with indifference and disagreement. What a shame, this was a nice addition to the area and a 'go to' for me.

Really good food, interesting cocktails and quick service. Staff were really polite and friendly, and you get free prawn crackers (always a bonus). Lovely atmosphere! 10/10 would return.
