Zenzi works because of the bar outside, a narrow corridor with high bar stools and sofas on either end.

Zenzi is where graphic designers who don’t cook eat, film producers meet agencies, incoming expats hope to get to know people, young execs dine clients, models mill about, artists display their work and everybody knows everybody else.

The open-air bar is where people congregate, guarding their tables zealously, cigarettes in one hand, chopsticks and take-out China Boxes in the other. Quiz nights, poetry sessions, world cinema, open-mind night and visiting DJ’s dot the monthly calendar, and bring in some fresh faces for the regulars who treat the place like a community living room.

Drinks are not cheap, and neither is the French, Thai, Japanese and Indonesian food. Further, service can be sometimes slow due to the sheer volume of patrona at the bar. But no one’s complaining. At least not seriously, because Zenzi delivers on all other counts.
