Lovely local Turkish restaurant

Just moved into the area and this is our local Turkish restaurant. We were really pleased with the quality of the food, the wine and the friendly service. Specifically, the hummus and breads were great, along with the chicken and lamb shish kebabs. Really enjoyed the red wine too. Would recommend a... read more

This popular restaurant at the centre of Hampstead serves excellent vegetarian food with a proper veggie menu. The Moussakka was nicely put together and most tasty. The Apricot fresh juice was a delight and worth at least two goes! Good ambience and wheel chair friendly. Shame about the slightly dodgy service which look like a false economy in saving wages...

A very wide range of Turkish meze, and excellent mains. All reasonably priced. Decent wine list - not too expensive. The cafe/restaurant has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and nothing seems too much trouble for the busy staff. Very handy if visiting the Royal Free Hospital, or after a stroll on Hampstead Heath.

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.

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.

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
