Let me start by saying I am not a vegetarian: but as I was staying at the Ovolo hotel for my sixtieth birthday I thought I would try something new!!
I have had a fair bit of Lebanese/Arabic style food,I do cook some Lebanese and Moroccan style food at home on occasion, but generally with meat or chicken and fish.
"Za Za Ta" does not disappoint, in the quality of food. But for a meat eater there is only so much mushed up veg food you can take. So 4 stars for the food, but if I were a vegetarian I would probably award 5 stars as the food was very testy, and the breads served were prepared fresh and were very high standard.
The staff; as they are in the Hotel were all extremely friendly and helpful, I personally would say this would be a great place for a starter-course ,maybe in their fabulous cocktail bar ,and then move on somewhere else for a main course allowing for meat or fish.
I must say considering the current "covid" restrictions this restaurant was very ,very busy.

Food was spectacular - for both the hard core vegetarians and their friends who tend to generally eat meat. We went with the chef's choice and definitely couldn't keep up - took some left-overs home. So many amazing and interesting flavours, fabulous cocktails too.

One of the worst dining experiences we have had . Placed in end of otherwise empty table of 8 near the door. Politely asked to move to a smaller table but told they were fully booked yet these empty smaller tables were still empty when we left . We chose the “let us look after you option” which should be more a rly named “let us underwhelm you”
At $59 per head we expected a little more that hummus, bread, extra large bowl of potatoes accompanied by 2 mushrooms. Then an underwhelming and undercooked cauliflower. Our food arrived before our pre dinner drinks and the speed at which all the courses arrived left us with a feeling we were being rushed out the door as well as indigestion
We would never set foot in this restaurant again and have advised our friends and family to give it a miss
Very uninspiring vegan food with a large price tag 👎

The food and service were exceptional. Love the vegetarian menu and the knowledge of the staff in recommending dishes. Everything we had was delicious.
My only criticism would be the wine list, specifically the sparkling/champagne and only because there wasn’t anything on there that I would typically order.
The G&T menu was a great option though and all of the cocktails looked delicious.

The food was very tasty and the restaurant was a vibe, however value for money was pretty poor. We got the ‘feed me’ which was $60ish per person and we were disappointed with the amount of food we received. Also the service was fairly average too.

First time eating here, we just ordered what potentially sounded nice without really understanding what we were getting. we got two dips with cold veges on top, flat bread, and a season cauliflower. All dishes had a creamy dip on it. Maybe we needed guidance with how to order but no assistance was offered. So we just didn't enjoy the food.

Do yourself a favour and order the “feed me” set menu with the wine pairings.

It was incredible and there serving sizes were generous.

The chefs picks were “chefs kiss”.

Our server was so wonderful, friendly and attentive.

We did have to vacate our table for another booking but they took us to the bar and offered us a cocktail of our choice on the house.

I can’t wait to go back.

Amazing food everything was so delicious. Potatoes needed to be cooked for longer though but really delicious flavors. Great service also. For the prices, we thought some of the dishes were quite small.

One thing we would change is the music volume and type of music - you'd get better ambiance if you went a bit quieter and different music to suit the food -we heard a lot of quite loud poppy music which was good music but didnt really match the environment.

First time went to a veg restaurant that was par excellence. The menu was different and each dish we ordered was delicious and had its own character... kudos to the chef! We had exceptional service and our hostess Mara was just fab! She suggested the best combo of dishes, each delectable! The ambience reminded us of the exotic middle eastern/ European world that he have been so missing! The lounge area and bar were beautifully done up to exude luxury and warmth..... truly a great experience... a must try for all!
