    The cauliflower shawerma should have came with bread misleading. Stuffed capsicum was warm rather than hot. Flavours needed a kick. Overall food is okay. Service and ambience were excellent.

    This restaurant had such good reviews so we were really excited to go...however for the price of the breakfast meals, they were very, very small portions. My breakfast dumplings had about 5 very small dumplings. Although the dumplings had a lot of flavour, for a bill of $75 for a 2 coffees, a tea and tiny breakfasts.. we did not expect to leave hungry. Recommend upping portion sizing for the price. The restaurant itself is beautiful though.

    We don't eat chilli, so this limited our choices. The "cauliflower" main dish was really just 2 serves of an entree. No protein in this dish. While the taste was initially enjoyable, it was less enjoyable as we munched through it, as the same flavour everywhere -- no variety. Vegetables need to be served alongside, or a protein dish of legumes. Annoyed at the suggestion by the server, that we didn't have time for dessert, as it was 7.15pm and we were told that we needed to leave by 7.45pm. I remonstrated that the automated response to our booking, had stated that our booking was from 5.30pm to 8pm - as we were a table of six! The server looked bewildered - obviously unaware of this policy. She said she would "check", but never did, as I asked her next time she came and she still looked vacant about this. It was disappointing as I looked like I was complaining, but was simply following the information that I'd received from your own automatic response system. As to the question below, would I recommend it to a friend? There were certainly good points about this restaurant, but we also felt that a solid old-fashioned wholefood vegetarian meal (eg. lentil pie), would have been far more satisfying. So I would qualify my answer. My husband came home and had a bowl of cereal. Not value for money, although the atmosphere was nice before the noise level increased. Service was generally good, but staff need to understand the booking system re: times (as previously explained).

    Really enjoyed our Musharaka premium degustation. Although we ordered the vegan, one dish came out with an egg, presumably from the vegetarian menu. Staff were apologetic and it was quickly rectified without fuss. Amazing tastes and presentation of food. Decor was beautiful and atmosphere was lovely. Would definitely go back for more. Loved this place.

    My partner and I both really enjoyed the food, but felt it was a little overpriced for what it was. Service was super attentive - we really appreciated that you got the plates of the feast over time rather than all at once, and the staff timed it well. However, we felt a little suffocated at times by staff constantly checking in with how everything was going. The concern was appreciated but it was a little too frequent. Side note, the hibiscus iced tea was way too sweet.

    Food at ZazaTa was fantastic. Very evocative of authentic middle Easter’s fare which I’ve eaten. The room was though almost too dark to read the menu and the desert service a little slow. But the brilliant drinks made up for that.

    hi there food was amazing - especially cauli. ambience was nice but seating limited and too close (covid). we ordered a number of dishes but felt squashed on small table (for 2). service was mixed - guy was great / maitre'd somewhat inflexible with seating and both repeated same opener in first 5 minutes ' have you been before?' told one person would be looking after us but also had another girl who plonked dishes on the table - little more mindfully please!
