To me, Zensai is probably the best bar/club in Camden. They play all the favourite tunes for everyone, good vibes in the place, the staff are really friendly, not too expensive so you can really have a good night. They also do happy hours (2 for 1) on beers, wine and cocktails - really good value for money.

This place is simply amazing. The bar staff are just amazing too. They are genuinely talented - every cocktail I have had there has been absolutely superb. This is the place to be if you love to party and enjoy a good cocktail!

The best bar in North London. Saves us the trip into town for excellent cocktails.

Zensai is by far the best bar and restaurant in London. They are faultless in all areas. We love it.

I have now eaten here on several occasions and have never failed to be impressed by the quality of food and the standard of the service. The great standard of food, for a reasonable price, keeps me coming back!

The couple of weeks this place was closed were the longest weeks of my life! Me and my work mates also went there every day after work for a well-deserved cocktail! So pleased that it is back, stronger than ever!

Unbelievable Asian cuisine served in a exquisite restaurant/bar. Heavenly cocktails as a lovely accompaniment to the beautiful food!

Zensai is the kind of restaurant you expect to find in Notting Hill that charge you a month's wages for a meal. It has great food, friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere... the best bit is you don't leave feeling broke!

An innovative change from the normal sweaty and grimy bars that fill Camden!

Great bar in the heart of Camden. Nice to see that Inverness Street still has the charm it had years ago. I would highly recommend trying their cocktails... truly amazing!

Nice to see a decent bar/restaurant in Camden at last. If you're tired of warm pints, or bad service from Italians with dreadlocks, then try Zensai. You'll find very pleasant staff serving great Malaysian food in sumptuous surroundings. If you've no time to eat, then pop downstairs to try their fantastic cocktails.

Best cocktail bar I've been to in a long time. Try the Floridita or the Chimera. Great music, decor and service. A real diamond in Camden's rough.

Really cool place. It's got a restaurant upstairs and downstairs there's a bar/club. Food was great, cocktails great too, nice staff, good service, and the free club nights at the weekend aren't to be missed.

If you're looking for the best happy hour in Camden, go to Zensai. It's on from 6:00 'til 8:00pm every day and the cocktails are fantastic. Great Thai and Malaysian dishes, friendly staff and cool, funky music. What are you waiting for?!
