We love Zara and come here often as a family. I have eaten in many Turkish restaurants, including in Turkey and the food here is authentic and tasty. I usually have the Lamb Iskendar but the chicken shish is good too. I also love the Shepherd salad, Tabouleh, and Houmous. The house red is excellent too. The staff always remember... More

Excellent food, friendly service, pleasant ambience. Couldn't fault it. The mezes were clearly freshly made with wonderful bright taste.

A little restaurant with vibrant atmosphere near Hampstead Heath. Served nice authentic food. Got free turkish coffee treat for our table when we had lunch there!

Three of us ate at Zara on a Friday evening. We'd not booked but they found us a table. The food was good without being exciting, there's plenty of it. Service is excellent and attentive, there are some interesting Turkish wines to sample. All in all a pleasant evening.

Zara has a lovely vibe - friendly, charming; authentic. A real 'local' atmosphere. We chose a few different items for our lunch. While they were ok, the food just wasn't delicious enough and we left feeling disappointed. Sadly, won't be back.

I was torn between a three and four rating, as our visit was perfectly pleasant, the food was tasty and the service was friendly, if slow. Ultimately, though, the food simply wasn't exciting enough to be considered above average. Nothing wrong with it, or the place in general, just nothing memorable or worth recommending. It does the job, with no... More

What gets a restaurant to the top of your list? If you rate simple local charm and consistently great food then this place is tops. I have been coming here for years to reconfirm that it still provides the best mixed grill in London. I don't know how they do it. The starters and veg dishes are also very tasty.... More

6 of us had a relaxed Christmas lunch at Zara yesterday and couldn't have been treated better. Half portions were offered to share for those with smaller appetites, a dessert was offered on the house and a replacement swiftly brought for a falafel which one of us dropped on the floor! Good food and excellent atmosphere. We left an extra... More

Just over the road from Hampstead Heath station is Zara's it is small in size but serves up really excellent tasty food at modest prices. I had a plate of delicious humus with their fine fresh warm bread, and my friends shared a rather yummy plate of Ispanak salata a mix of spinach yoghurt and olive oil. My chicken shish... More

I had really high expectation of this place but sadly it's a bit of a letdown. The food was not bad, but quite forgettable, and the portion was small, it's not an expensive restaurant but compared to the quality and quantity, I can get much better food for a much cheaper price anywhere else.
