Superb lunch deal

Zara is a small local gem. I work nearby and the £10 lunch deal is the best treat, and great value for this part of town. You'll get a warm and charming welcome and fresh, flavorful food. I haven't been apart from lunch but the menu looks extensive.

I have visited this restaurant several times over a period of 3 years. The food is always fresh and tasty. The service is pleasant and friendly. If you are in the area and like Anatolian food, this is worth a stop for a meal.

We have eaten many times here and have never been disappointed. On our last visit I had wonderful fresh bread with a herby salad, very generously sized for a cost of £4.50, baklava and a Turkish coffee. My companions had moussaka and kofte with an onion salad. We drank tap water and one raki. The bill was £36.00, not bd... More

A party of 6, we shared plates: cold starters and warm main dishes and everything was delicious. Warm pitta bread was home made and the flavours were very authentic. I am not a turkish food expert, but being Lebanese I know a thing or two about mediterranean cuisine and we were not disappointed.

This is a regular haunt of mine. Good value turkish cuisine in a relaxed setting. Always plenty of choice on the menu with helpful staff. The staff are very friendly and will ask you where you want to sit rather than plonking you anywhere. The menu is varied and the wines are good value. I have eaten there on many... More

Went for Friday team lunch. Were moved from table to table three times before any food was served. A bigger party of some 15 people came along after us. They were served first though....Waited for the starters for quite a bit- why? These did not need any cooking. Then everybody else in the restaurant was served the main course. They... More

I have been a regular albeit not very frequent customer at Zara for years. There are not many decent restaurants in this immediate area and I love Turkish food. The menu is impressive but somehow the food never quite lives up to expectations (especially by comparison with my favourite Turkish restaurant in another part of London). My Borek starter (spinach... More

Zara is definitely one of the best restaurants in London. Great location which is closed to Hampstead Heath. People are friendly there and food is in excellent quality. It worth to recommend to every one who loves food and atmosphere.
