This is a fantastic vegetarian restaurant with exciting variety as well as a gorgeous setting. The meals were beautifully presented and every dish was mouthwatering delicious. I cannot be more happy and will be going again as soon as possible.

Wonderful food but our meal took an hour and a half to come out (mid week with not many patrons). Shame as the food was wonderful. Just spoiled the evening waiting so long.

Very generous portions!
While an omnivore myself, I joined my daughter's family who are vegan, to share the vegan feast served up at Za Za Ta. Most dishes were very good, some would definitely have benefited from some bacon or prawns .... But I digress. There were also some dishes where I did not miss anything at all.
Overall - very tasty, and definitely a good choice when entertaining vegetarians or vegans.
Just be careful not to order too much, as the portions are very generous. In particular the tasting menu seems to be designed for multiples of 2. If you're in a party of 3, you'll get enough for 4 most of the time, and then you won't have room for dessert, which is a shame.

Food was amazing and real value for money. Ambience in the front room was really good- until it filled up and got pretty loud and we had to raise our voices to make conversation. The tables for two were packed so close together that the lady on a date at the table next to me became my new friend! Shame our waitress was a bit on the pushy side and kept interrupting us. Also she didn’t know the answer to any of our questions about the food. In the end she took my dessert plate out from under me while the spoon was still in my mouth. Anyway I will be back for the food!

This was my third visit to ZaZaTa/ Kazba and was as good as the two previous visits. Food is outstanding, the best hummus ever. The drinks selection is extensive, unique and cleverly crafted. Even the mocktails are impressive. The service is also top notch. Just the right amount of friendliness and attentiveness. I will definitely be visiting again.

The wait staff were very good. The food was interesting and wine list also interesting. The lighting was a bit low for aging eyesight and the noise level bordering on too loud.

We enjoyed our ZA ZA experience and highly recommend to anyone looking for something deliciously Middle Eastern. Each dish is stunningly presented, beautifully spiced, it's like a food bomb erupts in your mouth. We will definitely be back to make our way thru the menu.

We loved all our meals and ordered most of the menu for 6 people! The only meal we didn’t love was the cauliflower but probably just personal taste preference of what it was served with :)

To be honest, I’ve been wanting to go here for a while and obliviously didn’t realise it was vegetarian… But holy hell it did not disappoint. The mushroom dumplings were a must! Will happily go back and try the banquet!

Incredible experience! We started with a drink from the bar and sat in a small, intimate table at the back of the bar area. The space is incredible, with extremely beautiful decor and great vibes. Dinner was amazing. We had the "feed me" option, and asked for it to be vegan. It was absolutely more food then we could eat. Never in my life had I had vegetables done so well and creatively. My favourites were the hummus and flat breads. Will definitely come again and have already recommended to friends / family.

We chose the "feed me" option which put the food choice in the hands of the chef and it was outstanding, could not fault it. We had matching wines which were fantastic and a great value for money way to try different wines with different meals.

Restaurant seemed a little understaffed. Waiters although friendly did not explain the dishes for the “Feed Me” menu and just placed them on our table. Food was nice though could do with some varied flavours in particularly in the Feed Me menu.

If your looking for a nice part of town that offers both Vegetarian and Vegan menus, go no further than ZA ZA TA. The food was different, high quality, beautifully presented and without a long wait. Well received by our party, in particular the wine list.

Za Za Ta excelled in all aspects - food, staff, drinks selection, and atmosphere.

We had a selection of dishes curated by the chef for Mother’s Day Brunch. The highlights were the shakshuka, gozleme, chili haloumi doughnuts, pumpkin dumplings, and spiced antipasti.

The staff were very attentive, warm and relaxed. Despite that there were many people on the day, they give us the feel that we were the only people in the restaurant.

If you love G&T - then this is the place to be!

The decor and atmosphere are fantastic. The place is ideal for large groups wanting to have a pleasant conversation because you can hear each other.
