The food here is excellent and the service friendly and efficient. We had a selection of the mezze - extremely tasty. There's a real Turkish feel inside. Would really recommend. A perfect place to eat for every occasion!

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.
