It's not great.....we live locally so are always keen to try it out when it changes hands (in the past 4 years it's been an Italian, an Indian, an Italian and now another Indian. We went in just after it reopened and were surprised that the previous nice decoration had been replaced by horrid cheap salmon and lemon coloured gloss paint, everywhere. Food was just OK, nothing special, and as we were the only customers in there (7pm on a Sat night, not good) all 4 waiters kept hovering round us, asking if everything was OK every 2 minutes. We had a takeaway recently, which took an hour and three quarters to arrive, despite 4 phone calls, and they kept saying "oh, he just left, he'll be with you in 5 minutes" So despite living within 2 miles of the place, there are plenty of other, much better Indian restaurants in the area (Shaad in Congleton being one of them).
Zest has a beautiful interior, great staff and delicious food! It's very reasonably priced and I had such a wonderful night there! Despite being busy, my party was served quickly and the food was warm and fresh. A really lovely place - more special than the average restaurant, with personal service, unique dishes and a great atmosphere and interior features.
