London-North and Northwest London
May 11, 2018
This stylish Thai bar and restaurant on busy Inverness Street is split over two levels. Upstairs Zensai boasts an attractive and comparatively tranquil dining area, complete with water feature, while downstairs there’s a hip, low-lit bar. The drinks don’t particularly reflect the zen theme of the restaurant area though that’s not necessarily a bad thing as they serve a seriously good cocktail (their Breakfast at Tennessee with whiskey and Grand Marnier packs a real punch). The food is well above average for a London Thai joint, full of fresh and inventive flavours; there’s a degree of attentiveness in the cooking that can be lacking in other, similar venues. The bar downstairs is laid back during the week but starts jumping on weekends, their club nights proving popular with an eclectic Camden crowd.
