Customer feedback

There are a lot of decisions you make when installing a new kitchen. The best decision we made was selecting Kitchens with Zest to manufacture and install our new kitchen.


Kitchens with Zest had the most competitive price we could find and yet there was no compromise in service or quality. The Zest team was so easy to work with, they delivered on time, and the quality of the cabinetry and the expertise of the installation was excellent.


We are delighted with our new Zest kitchen and we would highly recommend them.

Alyson and Murray Edridge

Mike and his team really know what they are doing. Mike designed and built our kitchen, and we just love it. He certainly has an eye for detail.  We listened to what he was saying and have more storage than we ever expected. Everyone that comes into our house just loves the kitchen and it is a talking point. It has made our house that much more special.  Thank you Zest Kitchens. Highly recommend.

Kevin and Wendy Bryant

Wow! Thats what we are saying about our new kitchen. Words can not say how we are feeling right now. We absolutely love it. Thanks to Mike & his amazing team. Now the splashback is in, with Mikes recommendation of the colour & it just finishes it off. Highly recommend.

Dianne Martindale

Everything - they are absolutely superb - did our kitchen about 7 years ago - and we still love everything about it - they were fabulous - professional and quick and very easy to deal with.  Would definitely recommend them to everyone!

Janet Johnson

Decided to use a local kitchen company with their own factory for a recent kitchen replacement. Very happy with the end result. Light years better than the original mid 70's kitchen in terms of storage, workflow and looks. Great suggestions and advice from Mike and Catherine. Despite it only being a modest kitchen in a modest house they still spent the time to get all the details sorted. Jamie the installer did an excellent job and had a great eye for detail. Hinges and drawer slides are all excellent quality and a definite step up from the slightly cheaper Mitre10/Bunnings premade units. Highly recommended.
