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.

We have been eating at the Zara since it opened some 13 years ago and are never disappointed. The owner and his family make you most welcome and the food is remarkably consistent. Rather boringly we tend to order our favourites: mucver as a starter followed by delicious shish kofte served with salad, pitta bread and chilli sauce. Try the... More

We went here on a fairly busy Saturday without booking but were given a friendly greeting and seated right away. The service was friendly and we were given help with the menu. the menu itself was fairly extensive, with a good number of vegetarian options (one of the party was vegetarian). The food itself was good and tasty. Overall, there... More

I love Turkish food; Zara claims to specialise in Anatolian cuisine but it is sadly ordinary in a city with many better Turkish restaurants. It also ended up being quite expensive for what is basically a suburban setting (the prices would have been more appropriate in Hampstead Village). It is very nice to have a Turkish option again at South... More

We had a lovely meal at Zara. The food was fresh and full of flavour. We had the cold mezze platter followed by lamb kofte and chicken kebabs. All were delicious but the best was the baklava and the Turkish delights that we had with our coffee.

I stopped in about two PM on a Tuesday for a lunch. It was a bit warm outside, so I sat near the door to take advantage of the breeze from outdoors. The waiter was prompt to serve and helped with some details on the menu. He brought my beverage and starter of roasted aubergine to the table and took... More
