Open the menu and then tap on More and then look for the Date/Time option and then set the time zone to the correct one.

You can't. What you can do is change the time zone if that is incorrect. (Look in "Device" in settings.) However, if you connect to an active wifi network and sync your device (also in settings), your time should correct itself.

Is the time showing another time zone or is the clock simply incorrect? Are location services turned on? Have you rebooted the device? (Not turn off/on the screen but reboot it.)

In Settings open Device, there you'll see Date & Time where you can set the correct time zone.

Rebooting means holding the power switch for a full thirty seconds (you need to count the time so you don't release the switch too early, and you ignore anything that might show up on the screen).

There is a difference between shutting your device off and rebooting it. Holding the power switch that long ensures that it's a restart. Sometimes rebooting will resolve little buggy things.
