Loved everything about our Za Za Ta experience! I love a menu where veges are the heroes! Delicious and creatively presented. So hard to pick a favourite dish, though the cauliflower is hard to beat, followed closely by haloumi dumplings.

I took my mum here to celebrate my birthday, it was our first time dining at zazata. I had high expectations of this place and felt a little disappointed with the food . We ordered a beetroot yoghurt strawberry salad , it was literally just that . Nothing special about it at all just looked like tinned beets thrown in a bowl with some dollops of yoghurt and strawberries. The olives in mandarin oil with anise were different but very overpowering . The falafel on the witlof was a nice combination and not dry . The halumi donuts were our favourite but pricey for the serving size.
The sparkling water tasted horrible like tap water chilled and put in a soda stream .
The tables were not 1.5 meters apart and we felt claustrophobic. Being in the current climate with covid I felt the spacing was not the greatest .

Apauling service, when arrived for the reservation was made to wait and then informed the mobile number given was incorrect. They tried to reach us, as they were closed. No staff, then said Closed for a month the asked if we want dinner reservations. I work in hospitality, when lying please be professional or else be truthful and said sorry there was a mix up. It was our wedding anniversary and was extremely disappointed.

We booked our date night dinner at ZaZaTa after being gifted a dining voucher. From being seated and throughout our whole sitting, we were impressed with the service provided to us. The food was tasty. With one of us having a dietary requirement, we were happy how we were accommodated with this, as well. Thank you. Such a pleasant night out. We’ll likely be back again sometime.

We did the premium set menu with a wine pairing and it was incredible! Every dish stood out in its own way and it was so much food that we decided to pack one of the courses up. And the wait staff were helpful and knowledgeable. I’d highly recommend this place to anyone!!

The General Manager was very friendly and conversed with us for a while with great knowledge of all of the subsidiaries. The staff were also very nice. The food was amazing. Great, seasonal options and large variety with tasty combinations. The Prince Ali cocktail was sublime. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Food and drink were both hit and miss - some great and some not so great. It was the second night of a new menu, so maybe next time they won't serve the potato salad directly from the fridge (it was seriously cold and lacking in flavour because of this).
The drinks were ok, but again hit and miss. The shaken cocktails were watery.

We have eaten here before and had better. I think it was just an off night.

The staff and service were excellent.

We went here for a birthday lunch. The food was brilliant. We didn’t realise when we booked that the kitchen closes at 2pm and we’d booked for a late ish lunch so felt very rushed which was a pity. Would like to go again for dinner. Especially loved the haloumi donuts!

Fabulous feast of beautiful flavors. Feast - we had the set menu and it was more food than we needed so we had to bring some of the last 2 plates home in a doggy bag.
All dishes were delicious.

I love this place but I’ve been twice and the customer service is not that great. The staff are friendly but they are way too slow and not tentative enough. I had to ask for everything the whole time, waving down a waiter every step of the way. Not once did they serve us in an appropriate time. On the other hand the food and drinks are amazing!!!

The music was too loud and there was not enough staff to offer a good service. The waitress was lovely but had to many customers to serve adequately. The small meals were tasty but the large meals weren’t up to the same level. It was disappointing as we had a previous dining experience here and had a much better meal.

I really like the restaurant and the bar. The food is very good, the wine selection seems a little all over the place but we selected a very nice Italian white wine. The decor is great. Unfortunately everything is let down by the service. The noise level is over the top. We found it difficult to have a conversation without straining to speak or hear. I recommend for the food but will warn against the service and noise level.

We ordered the Feast option and were disappointed with everything but the olives. The food was fresh but completely bland, with no apparent use of the garlic, onion or spices you might expect to find at a Middle Eastern restaurant. It was very overpriced for such basic food. The staff were amazing and attentive, which is truly the only saving grace.
