The restaurant was quiet as we had an early light dinner. We ordered a platter of starter to share, of which none of the ingredient was fresh, while the dim sums were decent. Service was friendly and professional.

Our waiter was excellent, attentive and conversed to a good level. Very good hygiene with covid. Food very nice and good portions. Will definitely go back. Very nice touch with a Polaroid picture taken. Only bad point was when another waiter made us keep our used cutlery for the next course.

Nothing was poor enough to make a fuss of, but at the price point and good word of mouth, i confess i expected far far more.
The staff were good, never pushy, knowledgeable and prepared to make suggestions,
the drinks were disappointing, alarm bells should have rung loud, pomelo margaritas not a well know Malaysian-Chinese speciality.... regardless, the drinks were unbalanced and hard to pick out any discerning flavor.
The food... twice the price you'd expect for the quality and quantity you get, nothing i would recommend nor advise to avoid,
im not sure how long Zheng has been going, it feels that the location and reputation has made them rest of laurels that they cant back up, at worst i would say i have had better buying frozen goods from wing yip, at best, the godmother chicken was quite nice

It was nice to walking into a a restaurant with a warm and accommodating feel to it. The music was at a good decibel where you don’t have to shout to the person opposite you just to have a conversation. The food was amazing as well as the service

Great food and ambience. It was a quiet Sunday but the restaurant was welcoming and warm. Staff were very friendly and food was well prepared and presented. We chose from the main menu and were delighted with the quality of the dim sum and the main courses of Cumin Lamb and the Say Chicken. Black Rice with Coconut desert was really unusual and tasty.

I booked Zheng for dinner a few weeks ago. It’s a lovely restaurant, the initial seating we were offered was a bit to close to the next table, thankfully offered a table with a lot more room. Food was on the whole good. I wasn’t to enamoured with the cereal prawns which was a chef recommendation. Service was very friendly and overall food was good, I hope to return to try a few other dishes.

It is our forth visit to the restaurant and sadly this was the most disappointing. The Salt and Pepper squid had previously been outstanding and a reason alone to visit - this time all the starters were over cooked and dry. We had the Salt & pepper squid & chicken wings & a starter plater so we had a full range and all very below standard.
Possibly the pressure on the kitchen to serve the Delivery demands is effecting the quality of the food being sent to the on-site diners.
A real shame.

It started well, good atmosphere and service, they took our coats, starters came out promptly (the platter for 2.. it was ok..) then we seemed to get forgotten about for about an hour. Our table wasn’t cleared between courses, empty aperitif glasses not cleared so I had to put them on table next to us and then still not cleared. the busy restaurant (Saturday night) started to empty. Staff wiping down empty tables whilst ours needed clearing, and clearing up around us as we were starting to wonder if we were invisible. Main course when it arrived came out cold and we had to send it back to be reheated, so we’re sitting even longer in this now empty restaurant. I had to take a napkin from a neighbouring table as I needed a fresh one. There’s no one looking after us now. Our table for 2 was put back to a table of 4 as we’re still eating - they are really starting to close up the restaurant now - Then the only table still going was a birthday of teenage girls who started taking photos of each other, posing around the restaurant, aided by the waiting staff. Very strange. Don’t think Giles Coren would have rated it as highly as in 2017! Really disappointed.

Attracting quite a young and trendy crown (by Chelsea standards), a really-good all-purpose Chinese restaurant, offering most of the classics, but a bit of flair (and a Malaysian twist) too. Slightly odd selection of pop-classics on the sound system - haven't heard some of those numbers for a while! - fail to dent a very good all-round experience.
