Having my nephew staying over for the summer holidays makes it pretty hard to keep him entertained, so we headed to Northwick Park Golf for some ranging followed by a meal at Blue Zenzer which is just on the premises.
Seeing that our party size was small we didn’t book in advance at Blue Zenzer, but I advise you that you should it was pretty busy on this Saturday early evening, but luckily we seated straightway. The restaurant is large, with wooden tables and chairs and some booths available for larger parties, they also have a bar in display and view of the golf grounds. It is a friendly family restaurant so expect many children even in the evenings.
The menu is of an Italian and Indian mixture, with plenty to choose from. The drinks menu is also extensive with a range of alcoholic and non- alcoholic cocktails. I opted for the Cupid Strike Mocktail which is blended lychees and strawberries with lychee juice (£4.95). It was yummy, but would have been even better with some alcohol.
We were happy that they provide a kids menu for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians, which includes’ a starter, main-meal, a soft drink and ice-cream. My nephew opted for ‘Dough Balls’ with garlic butter, a ‘Margarita Pizza’ they meal also includes fries.
From the starter menu we opted for the ‘Stuffed Mushroom’: portabella mushroom filled with spinach, ricotta cheese served with garlic cream sauce (£5.50), and ‘Bruschetta Toscana’: toasted rustic breads topped with marinated fresh cherry tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, basil & feta crumble (£4.95)
For mains I opted for the ‘Chilli Corriander’ pizza with mixed pepper, sweet corn marinated in fresh chilies, turmeric & fresh coriander seeds (£8.95), the other diner chose the ‘Fettuccine Fra Diablo’ with prawns, spicy tomato, spinach, asparagus, pine nuts, touch of cream & feta crumble (£11.95)
The food was lovely even though I wasn’t too keen on the stuffed mushrooms they didn’t look very appetising and they tasted very bland, but the bruschetta was great. I thoroughly enjoyed my chili coriander pizza even though I couldn’t finish it, I took it away and it made great breakfast the next day. Overall Blue Zenzer is a nice addition to Harrow, although at times staff are a bit slow it’s a nice friendly environment and I love the concept of Italian food with an Indian twist, the portions are huge so great for sharing.
