I decided to book a table of 12 at Zenden Restaurant on the 12th of April for dinner to celebrate my birthday on the actual day. The very kind manager, a guy with the name starting with A (I didn't mean to forget his name); he was very nice and agreed to whatsapp me pictures of the food spread for dinner when requested. He sent a picture of all the dishes, which was very kind of him.
On the actual day, I was warmly greeted by that same manager that I spoke to on the phone and he ushered me to my seat. He event apologized for giving me 2 tables of 6 instead of a table of 12.
The staff members was very attentive and when I took the crab legs, the staff brought over the pincers and the lemon water for washing purposes. Also, they cleared the used utensils very efficiently and refilled the ice water without me asking for them to refill. This shows their attentiveness to the customers.
Food wise, spread was not too bad. But quality of food was really good. Not kidding! I loved the crayfish, cheesecakes and hainanese chicken rice. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEIR DURIAN PENGAT WAS SUPER GOOD. It was like durian purée, pure durian melting in my mouth. The food was constantly refilled and there was almost nothing I was unsatisfied about.
Oh, I expected cream soups like pumpkin or mushroom cream soup, but ended up having minestrone and old cucumber soup, which wasn't to my liking.
After eating my fill, the manager actually asked the chef to prepare a special slice of cheesecake for me since it was my birthday.
It was overall a great experience but I felt it could be better if they can give me a more private space for more privacy. Cos the space is quite open.
Do visit this place, it's really worth it cos of the quality of both the food and the staff members! Kudos to the chef and staff members! I had a wonderful birthday celebration/dinner on that weekend(:
