We say

Situated in the grounds of the Careys Manor Hotel and specifically attached to the hotel's Spa, the Zen Garden is the perfect place to indulge in delicious Thai cuisine in a unique and tranquil atmosphere. Non-residents are just as welcome as guests from the hotel and spa to come and enjoy the food, which is served at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Continental and full breakfasts are catered for, the full menu is available at lunchtime, along with a selection of sandwiches and salads, and a wide range of smoothies are served throughout the day; dinner is served every evening. The Thai menu is of course the real highlight, with the main feature being a five-course tasting menu that takes you through the full range of Thai flavours. There are plenty of vegetarian options, as well as a selection of soups, starters and sides, and the gold murals, bamboo ceiling and views over the pool create a tranquil and calming atmosphere, the ideal setting to enjoy a relaxing meal. So whether you are looking for a delicious spa lunch, a three-course dinner or just a freshly made smoothie, you won't find anywhere better in the New Forest than the Zen Garden.
