ZA ZA TA. A place where wonders never cease.
I personally didn't like the food. My gf did. Wouldn't go there again.
Tasty food, small portions and over priced. Lovely venue and good service.
Delicious food. Great service. Good vibe. Thanks for a great dinner.
Welcome back, we have been counting the days! Once again zazata never disappoints. There is a shift to 100% vegetarian that is innovative and delicious. No doubt the ‘pretzel’ and chicken murtabak will be missed but the halloumi and the yemini bread are spectacular thank you again chef for some of the best food in Brisbane
Service wasn't good. People next to us were service before us although we arrived and ordered before them. 4 of the 6 things we ordered we were told where not available, at different times. Nothing advertised the restaurant was vegetarian.
This meal was so disappointing. We had been here before and had a great meal but it has since been taken over by the Ovolo hotel group and turned into a vegetarian restaurant. I don't have a problem with vegetarian food, we used to eat regularly at Transformer in Melbourne, but it needs to be done well. The service so slow from the start, after about 15 minutes the wine arrived in a 500 ml carafe, we'd ordered a bottle, 5-10 minutes later the bottle arrived but it was the wrong wine, it did'n't get much better. The entrees were bland and lacked balance, the main course was even worse. We'd been recommended the cauliflower dish, it was over boiled, still wet and lacked any taste. My mother in law can prepare better food and I usually eat before we go there so I don't have to eat when I'm there! The food was truly terrible, it is difficult to find the words to describe just how terrible it was. I think the staff possibly aware of how bad to food was, they did appear uncomfortable and embarrassed when we left. We were so disappointed, it was once of those experiences where we'll never be able to eat there again even if it was under new management, kitchen staff and menu just based on this one experience. We have come as close to as possible to having 'post dinning' PTSD!
We had heard really good things about Zazata and leading up to the booking time we had an email to say what to expect on the menu but when we arrived it didn’t feel like we were expected and we were given the menu that looked completely different and all vegetarian.
We had a really lovely staff member serving us, she was delightful and really helpful with the menu!
Interesting dishes and a beautifully designed restaurant and bar area. It was a great culinary journey, a couple of dishes missed the mark, but it was a very enjoyable evening and the atmosphere is fun and cruisey. I could live in the lounge area, super cosy.
So good! The food was amazing, staff were so kind!!
Yes! The food and ambience was incredible and the host was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Musings on Za Za Ta ...🤔
This wasn’t my first visit to Za Za Ta and I can assure you it won’t be my last 😋
With friendly staff, modern decor and a food you won’t find anywhere else, this funky upstart is shaking up the Brisbane food scene. 👍🏼👏
The Israeli/Mediterranean fusion is a stroke of true genius and caters vegetarians 🥦and non vegetarians 🥩🍗🦐.
The drinks list is broad and similarly unique.🍺🍸🍾
The menu is well thought out and prefect for sharing for small and large groups alike. Set menu options are those who want to put the journey into the chefs hands. 👨🏼🍳
On this visit, there were a couple of new dishes that elevate an already excellent menu to the next level. 🤯
I must confess that when eat @dariomancachef food (and I have often) I hear music, the tastes, textures and depth of flavour are truely remarkable and downright heavenly ..🤩😍
ITS A MUST VISIT FOR ANY OCCASION
The meal was delicious the first time I had gone here, and the standard maintained for food and ambience. The only fault I can point is that the service was not as top notch as my first visit. We had the banquet and the waitstaff had the knowledge to help recommend certain dishes - however they did not check up on us throughout our dinner for our drinks and often times we found ourselves having to wait to catch their attention to get water. Again, not the worst thing to happen. But it would have been better if at each round of dishes served we had a refill or a bottle of water for us.
Ambient is very relaxing and clean, food is well thought and service is excellent.
Amazing food, great atmosphere, awesome desert and best of all friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will be back soon for more :)
I really enjoyed our Saturday lunch here. Lovely service. I had the set lunch with Harissa chicken. The food was delicious and warming with the yummy spices. The bread was warm and flakey, olives and dips paired nicely. It was quite rich so it would've been good to have some kind of greens or salad included in the set lunch or recommended as a side to cut through the richness. I'm keen to come back and try the dinner menu!
We had a wonderful experience at Za Za Ta. Based on a recommendation from a friend, we opted for the full-on $99 banquet and everything was absolutely beautiful, from start to finish. There was not a dish we didn't love. Service was top notch too, the team there took care of us so well. It was definitely one of the best banquet we've had to date.
Maybe I little disappointing sorry for that feed back
Another amazing night .. great food and first class service.
Beautiful food and exceptional quality ingredients. Our meal was a taste sensation from beginning to end. Service was impeccable with the right amount of attentiveness without being intrusive , and our waitress went through and explained the ingredients/meal (which we appreciated), as well as water always topped up without asking. This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. We look forward to returning very soon.
Love the food, service & decor. I can’t wait to go back again.
Fabulous as always. Food is exceptional and staff amongst the most polished I've ever seen.
I loved the decor and the service was outstanding but unfortunately I found the food was just ok and I didn’t feel it was good value for money
Great venue, food, drinks and service. The aircon is cranked up so bring something warm to slip on.
We enjoyed it so much that we recommended friends who are food fanatics to visit you as well when they stay at the Ovolo in a few weeks time. They have already booked a table. Thank you for the exceptional quality of your food and the phenomenal flavours. Mostly, thank you for bringing out our food so fast so we could make our show on time.
An memorable experience in a lively charismatic venue. The food was certainly the standout – a unique cuisine that is rare in Brisbane. Highly recommended. Would dine again.
the food is exceptional. service is outstanding. definitely recommend this place and will be returning!
This was the best restaurant we have been to in the three years we have been living in Brisbane. The food is amazing, unique and extremely delectable. A gorgeous setting, friendly and professional staff. The best thing for us is that Za Za Ta is down the road for us and we will definitely be coming back, with friends in tow.
Sat at the bar for a couple of drinks before getting our table, after the first drink it was like they were only serving people who were standing up at the bar, many coming along and getting served while I was waiting for ages with an empty glass, even after I told one of the guys I wanted a drink!! The food was good we got the $79 banquet but very small portions especially when your dividing them between 4 people, was not much more than a mouthful each for each course!
I went there with my girlfriends on Saturday and we had a beautiful experience. The service was outstanding, the staff was very professional and friendly at the same time. Our food was superb and the atmosphere is beautiful. Must try: The bread and the chocolate brownie
The major criticism and it may be a subjective opinion, is that the sauces served with the food or the sauces the food was served in were very rich. Our table ordered platters and we were unable to finish the food, not due to being full as much as our stomach were not able to tolerate any additional food with out feeling upset.

I trust you enjoyed the rest of your experience with us, it was a pleasure hosting your company. Kind regards, Stefanou and the ZA ZA TA Team.
Food was amazing. Service was even better. Funky vibe with a DJ later in the evening. Definitely will be back!
Food absolutely delicious and love the atmosphere/ambience of the place :) will definitely be back!
Love that there are so many great vegetarian options!
Hi there Keely, Thank-you so much for the 5 star review. From carnivore to herbivore, we believe that good food is something that should never have to discriminate. Hope to see you back in the restaurant shortly! Kind regards, Stefanou and the ZA ZA TA Team.
Mel's were hit and miss - some amazing, others subpar.
Hey Bree, Thanks for your feedback! We strive for perfection in every meal we create here at ZA ZA TA. To hear your experience doesn't reflect this sentiment is something we will definitely look into. Kind regards, Stefanou and the ZA ZA TA Team.
I was incredibly excited to try Za Za Ta after numerous recommendations. Besides an incredible atmosphere and interior, it was overall a very disappointing experience. The food was presented beautifully but the flavours were unpleasantly rich. The octopus was cooked to perfection but the flavours were over powering and gritty. The service started well, very attentive, but quickly became a mess. We had multiple waiters - one would bring us new wine glasses after taking our order and then someone would take them away thinking we hadn’t ordered yet a needed new ones. Our starter plates sat finished for about half an hour, with waiters looking but not doing anything. Wish I had better things to say, but our experience certainly didn’t live up to the hype.
Order the Fremantle Octopus 🙌 great menu and quality food for sharing.
Awesome food and great friendly service. Will surly be back 🙏😊
I would come back for cocktails and a snack. The food itself was quite nice but the portion sizes were ridiculously small for what should be considered 'sharing' sizes. We had five dishes between three people and it was just not enough.
A series of mishaps ruined our evening there
Would not go back
Was delicious food and an amazing atmosphere and vibe. Had a lovely waitress and overall great experience
Hey there Nico, Thank-you very much for the glowing review! Come rain or shine, work or play, the team here at ZA ZA TA is dedicated to providing everyone with exceptional flavours and good times. We hope to see you back here shortly! Kind regards, Stefanou / Restaurant Manager.
